"Luckily, no one here has a vote so unless you're going to call your electors you might as well not bother stressing about it. And there's no religious test, you know."

Pragmatism vs Idealism at the DNC

Posted on February 22, 2017 at 5:31pm 6 Comments

Just read this story and it has me turning my head inside out as I consider what should be "right" as opposed to what might "work" for the Democratic National Committee in 2017 and the Midterm Elections in 2018: Ellison holds edge in DNC race survey.  In my heart I hold nothing but respect for Rep. Keith Ellison (Minn.) who in a new survey of DNC members holds an edge over former Labor…

Faux News and Tucker Carlson Manufacture Alternative Talking Heads

Posted on February 21, 2017 at 1:30pm 7 Comments

Fox News’ Tucker Carlson had a hard time booking Olga Lexell, the creator and co-organizer of the nationwide Not My President’s Day protests on Monday. So, after repeated refusals, Carlson’s show instead booked Shane Saunders, a Los Angeles-based actor and casting agent, who Lexell said “was not affiliated in any way with our rallies and was not an organizer.”…

Jmac, having trouble adding a comment to the eulogy for your Mom. Bottom line is that nothing is wrong. I think that James Emm had some good advice. The only thing I would say, is to shorten a bit. For example:

She was good at everything...as a daughter, a sister, a mother, a grandmother etc. You needed keep using good. My grandfather who was an editor, said cut out every other word and see what you've got. But do read it out loud. If you stumble over a phrase. Kick it out.

And caring about others first is really a admirable trait. I believe there is a lesson in the Talmud about taking care of those in your charge before yourself. On the other hand if we are not for ourselves, who will be?

These things must come from the heart. Anecdotes and little stories are appropriate. Your mother loved you. And she knows that you are doing your best.

Wishing you peace.

Stay in touch.

Annie
