ABOUT THE NOMINATION

It was beyond uncomfortable to watch the Judiciary Committee hearing last week, both the testimony of the high school classmate of the nominee who claimed he had assaulted her, and his vehement denial. She was, as the President said, credible. The nominee didn’t help himself when he got... Sign in to see full entry.

BILLY GOATS GRUFF

Trolls: 1. I remember reading a story about three Billy Goats Gruff who had to go over a bridge to get to a grazing meadow. Under the bridge lived a vicious troll who would climb up and attack travelers as they got halfway across. Apparently the troll had killed and eaten a number of young goats who...

ICING ON THE CAKE

It would be beyond naïve to think that any president’s appointment of a jurist to the Supreme Court is apolitical. Anyone who’s gone to the trouble of getting elected has an agenda. How Jane Q. Public feels about the current political climate depends on her own experiences and expectations. There... Sign in to see full entry.

THE LIVING BOOKS PROJECT

About half a block up and across the street from The Main Street Community Center is another place that focuses on service. That place is now a part of the Lewis & Clark Community College, known as the Mannie Jackson Center for The Humanities, originally the Lincoln School. Mannie Jackson is a...

THE WRITE GROUP

I figured there’d be a light turnout on Thurs. since the Senate Judiciary Committee hearing with Brett Kavanaugh’s accuser and his rebuttal was to be broadcast live on TV. A few of the writers in the WYOS group follow all things political. One even takes notes of the evening CNN and MSNBC shows and... Sign in to see full entry.

NO CIRCUS TODAY - SEND HOME THE CLOWNS

I just don't find politics amusin' any more. So if it "ain't my wife, ain't my life" I'm gonna turn the back burner down to low, let the pot-kettle debate simmer on its own. * * * On Tuesday I got to the DMV about a quarter of 8:00 a.m. to find twenty desperate souls already in line. Some were glum,... Sign in to see full entry.

GENTLEMEN AND SCHOLARS? BUBBAS?

The GOP male-dominated U.S. Senate is facing a values test this week. At issue is whether they are competent gentleman-scholars of constitutional law, able to decide the legality as well as the moral right or wrong of a particular matter – or merely bubbas who will go along to get along. As wiser... Sign in to see full entry.

BEST LAID PLANS…

Have to admit yesterday’s plan wasn’t one of the best laid. I decided to check Google before heading out for the DMV. Turns out the facility is closed on Mondays. Not just the local one, but all those nearby are off the clock on Mondays. So will be going at 8:00 a.m. on my very birthday, the... Sign in to see full entry.

WISH ME LUCK

I’ll be heading for the DMV this morning to renew my driver’s license. Not a big deal for most of us, an inconvenience – it’s always a 3-hour ordeal, the counter clerks are not known for their warm welcome and questions are often met with one of those looks that mean “how can you be so stupid?”...

At The Checkout Counter

I’VE GOT TWINS As I do when there’s a new kid bagging groceries while I’m waiting for the clerk to finish scanning my groceries I asked him if he’s in school. Many of the workers at my store are business majors or in IT programs at the university, well on their way onwards and upwards. He grinned... Sign in to see full entry.
