About Me

Female. Retired. Wife-Mom-Grandma. Approx. 30 years in broadcasting, at least 20 of those in news biz. Taurus. Loves chocolate - preferably without nuts or cocoanut. Animal lover. Rock-hound from pre-school age. Proud Democrat for life. Ardent environmentalist and pro-choicer. Hoping to use my skills set for the greater good. Still married to the same guy for 40+ years. Probably because he's a proud Democrat, too. Penmanship absolutely stinks, so I'm glad I'm a fast typist! I will always love Hillary and she will always be my President.

YAY!!! Wonderful news! Happy Anniversary!

That's WUNNNNNDERFUL!!!! And 53 more!!!!

LOVE it!!! Very true.

No cat is an island. At least until they realize they can't work the can opener...

(Then they're alone as can be, and VERY needy of human help and intervention!!! Hear that, libertarians????)

Welcome to DU, flt rsk!

Glad you're here! Good little tidbit you pointed out, too, about Dan Rather. He joined the Marines. Offered to put his own ass in harm's way. Let's see bill kristol and dick cheney and the rest of their miserable little fellow neocon members of the "YOU FIRST Club" do that. If I were in charge, I'd make it mandatory. You start mouthing off about how we HAVE TO go to war, war, war, war, war, on TV, cable, radio, blogs, video, personal appearances, interviews, speeches, on the floor of the Senate or in the House, or whatever, and you are thereby REQUIRED to enlist, and go see real live combat for yourself, Up Close 'n' Personal. And you wouldn't be allowed to advocate for war unless you personally had done active duty in one. Our current Secretary of Defense, Chuck Hagel, is GOP. But he's still walking around with shrapnel in his body from his tour of duty in Vietnam, so him I can respect.

Great job, denbot!

Sounds like you solved several problems at once!

FABULOUS!!!! I grabbed it for my Facebook page!

After I scraped myself off the floor where I fell down laughing, that is...

Welcome to DU, Protalker!

Glad you're here! Intrigued by your screen name, I must say. Are you in talk radio?

MAY be Diet Dr. Pepper, but frankly, she looks drunk as a skunk in that shot.

True and concise summary upthread by Ineeda: "that woman is an idiot."

Welcome to DU, Curtis!

Glad you're here! It's just been the most maddening, frustrating, sad, disappointing, and rather (sadly) illuminating experience. For those of us (I say "us" because one of those naifs was yours truly) who thought, naively, that the election of Barack Obama to the presidency meant we actually, somehow, had turned a page on racism in this country. I thought it meant MAYBE we really had grown up as a nation and left that shit behind. I was sure that America had finally gotten over it, or at least made a solid, recognizable start.


My disappointment is as big as the galaxy.

Sounds like something we could all say about our own Omaha Steve.

Sleep with your colleagues in the Heavenly Friars Club, Robin Williams. Glad we still have you for awhile, Omaha Steve!


Also makes you wonder if Mike Brown was running and the cop was running after him. Ten shots counted??? The medical examiners said there were Brown was shot six times. So four shots evidently missed - maybe because they were both running and it was harder for the officer to aim?
