Profile Information

Bio
Male, Jewish, in my early sixties, married with kids (well, at this point I guess that should be "kid"). Thanks to Lezlie for avatar artwork - sort of a translation of my screen name. "Salaam" is peace in Arabic, hence the peace sign. (No, my name doesn't mean "hunk of meat" and yes, the pun is intentional.)

Single Sentence Sunday: Why Trump is being deserted in the wake of his remarks on Charlottesville

To support or condone the Charlottesville marchers is to abandon the ability to deny one's own racism.

Jerry Lewis passed away today

Posted on August 20, 2017 at 3:21pm 6 Comments

He was 91. I'm too young to have been aware of him when he was at his peak, particularly with Dean Martin. His telethons collectively earned well over a billion dollars for his cause.

This one is an attempt to de-politicize the proceedings. Normally, the White House hosts a pre-event gala. Not this year - three of the five honorees were either considering not attending or stated outright they wouldn't: Carmen de Lavallade (a dancer I've never heard of), Lionel Ritchie, and Norman Lear.

Guest Post: Dr Wayne Journell on Confederate statues

Posted on August 17, 2017 at 3:57pm 3 Comments

Dr. Journell is a professor of education whose area of specialty is history, which is to say he teaches history teachers. This is a post of his on Facebook. He is a former colleague and current Facebook friend of my wife, teaching at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro (UNCG). I am not on Facebook - my wife read me this. I got Dr. Journell's permission to reprint this.



The Facebook post has photographs. They did not convey… Continue
