We didn't think of Veronica or Dora as anything more than people who worked for us, at least my parents didn't. My father admired Dora's dark beauty and graceful movements and he liked Veronica's easy manner and the way she fitted into our family as though knit there by design, a dark bright thread...

Before I knew of his opinions, I read Orson Scott Card's ENDER'S GAME. I liked it well enough - I fear it had been oversold to me by a huge fan so no matter how awesome it might have been, I was expecting more. I did like it, however, and continued the series for a book or two before I fizzled...

I said it last week when I read about Representative Doug Lamborn of Colorado and I will say it again: I get the feeling this man has been using the term tar baby way before the cameras got on him and he forgot they were there. And Mr. Buchanan? Some "folks" did "Sort of take it...

Hello, Tea Party? This is America calling to touch base. I just wanted to tell you that I am on your side about cutting spending and reducing the deficit. I get it, we are all going to go down the tubes, if we don't do something pretty quick. I am with you on that. But, we need to talk. I have...

A long holiday weekend, why not go to the movies, I thought, so I braved the holiday traffic to see George Hickenlooper's new release, "Casino Jack," starring Kevin Spacey. For me, movies are like lovers. The less you know about them in advance, the more you're likely to appreciate them...

Prominent white conservatives are angry about racism.  Forget all that talk about a post-racial society. They know better than to believe in such a thing, and they're hopping mad. What is it that woke them up finally, after all these years of denial, during which they insisted that racism was a...

What will he say next about the devastation in Haiti and the Haitian people? Especially in the cities of Port-Au-Prince and Jacmel since the country's devastation. Haiti...
