What's Wrong With Trump

I wrote this in early March but I think it is still relevant.

Throughout the campaign the issue of whether Donald Trump was fit to be President was continually discussed and debated. The most common term used was “temperament,” i.e., the argument was whether or not Mr. Trump had the proper temperament to be President. This is separate from the issue of what his policies would be and…

Father Kniest, Jazz Priest

I’m getting too old for this, I thought as I made my way down Boylston Street, my tambourine in one hand, the Good Book in the other. I started ministering to the jazz scene in Boston back when Estelle Slavin and Her Swinging Brunettes were the house band at Izzy Ort’s Coney Island Club on Essex Street. Floogie Williams and the Unquenchables were ensconced at the Tip-Top Lounge, which didn’t sit well with the sconces that came with the place as trade fixtures, but so what? We were young and…

Democrats; Time to Re-brand and Reboot.

Fair Play, South Carolina is a real town in the Upstate

"Our Name Says it All"

Trying to find the core belief within a political party is a little like looking for an item in the refrigerator; brands change and the location within the ‘fridge changes, but butter is still butter and…

Question for a Tuesday

"Committed to being America’s best first job"  is the trademarked slogan for the

McDonald's ad campaign to counter the labor movement for a $15.00 per hour minimum wage.



They've poured millions of dollars into national advertising and lobbying all levels of government in an effort to surppress the upward pressure on the minimum wage rather than taking the same money and distributing it to employees.



All of us have had experience with that very first 'real' job and… Continue

Yellowstone Supervolcano 2.5 times Larger Than Previous Estimates

Yellowstone Supervolcano 2.5 times Larger Than Previous Estimates:   A new study shows the supervolcano beneath Yellowstone National Park is actually about 2.5 times larger than previous estimates, suggesting that an eruption could very well doom all of humanity.  Scientists theorize it would be nearly impossible for most life forms to survive such a cataclysmic event, with the possible exception of cockroaches or perhaps a few of the…

http://www.msn.com/en-us/news/us/us-top-court-tosses-republican-drawn-north-carolina-voting-districts/ar-BBBoo3E?OCID=ansmsnnews11

Important ruling. Overturns an earlier Supreme Court mistake that conflated racial motivations to suppress black votes as merely political play to a more rational and legal standard that declares that politically…

Fake Your Way With Biz Cliches

If you want to get ahead in business, it is not enough to be intelligent, hard-working, and decisive.  The Great Plains of Commerce are littered with the corpses of men and women who possess these qualities, and who were nonetheless stung to death by a swarm of buzzwords.…

RIP

I'm still trying to wrap my mind around Chris Cornell's death. He was 52 when he decided to cash out, roughly 2 months younger than I am. Sometimes when I attempt to put myself in the mind of a person like Cornell right before he hung himself, or Kurt just before he pulled the trigger, or any one of the millions of anonymous people out there who chose to stop living rather than face that darkness any longer, I can, almost, understand what they were thinking in those last few minutes or seconds.… Continue

Girls Just Want to Have Fun - Dance Parade, 2017 NYC Part 2

A great song but please don’t take the title too seriously.  It certainly does not mean that girls don’t also want success or to be respected.  But the song kept coming back to me as I watched the Dance Parade yesterday.  The event itself was overwhelmingly female. …
