Little Brother Eddie flew in this past weekend for reasons I cannot divulge, except to say it had something to do with the upcoming book. In any case, he had one request: “I want to go to Frankenmuth.” I asked why. “I want to go get noodles from the restaurant we ate at last time, and I want to stop off at the outlet mall.” I asked why. “Because I like the noodles.” I didn’t mean that part of the reason. “Oh, I want to shop for some clothes for my niece and nephew.”

I was looking out of the kitchen window this morning as I washed a couple of glasses reflecting on how different the process is in one’s home as compared to a restaurant or bar, wondering how the neighbors wash their glasses.
We live at the end of a short street and after eight years are not friends with any of the neighbors by mutual agreement. With the possible exception of the Hispanic family at the other end who might have voted Democrat, I’m sure the rest of the street voted…Continue

“Don’t go,” Little Brother warned me. “She wants to eat you. Or they’ll find your body floating in the bay.”
The Grandmonster had invited me to Hong Kong for the Chinese New Year this year, and while I’m sure she’d very much enjoy watching the Police finding my body in the bay on the evening news, there was something else afoot. My little brother was immediately concerned, but mostly because I haven’t updated my Trust yet to include giving him all my airline miles in case of my…Continue
Muslim and Jewish children at protest wins hearts: A Muslim and a Jewish father had never met before bringing their children to O'Hare International Airport Monday to join in a protest of President Donald Trump's immigration ban. But after a photograph showing their son and daughter interacting went viral, they decided to bring their families…Continue

I’m tired of Italians in this country who either support the anti-immigrant/anti-refugee policies of the new ultra right wing administration in Washington, or who remain silent and don’t raise their voices in support of the immigrants being targeted.
Don’t these Italians remember or even know about their own family’s history in this country?
If you’re Italian and think that certain people, like Muslims or Syrian refugees, should be registered or…Continue
