Dear Lauren Wiggins

I write this publicly to answer the concerns you made public in the letter you sent to your school principal regarding the dress that was deemed inappropriate for school. First, I want to congratulate you on writing a well-thought out letter that contained appropriate diction, spelling, and grammar. You deserve recognition for being able to […]

Where True Love = Hate

Over the last couple weeks, the whole Chick-fil-A and Dan Cathy “traditional marriage” storm has created a great deal of public shouting all over the media and Facebook. I’m not even sure that anyone is hearing anything anymore. I’ve quit posting replies on Facebook because it’s impossible to really get your point across in short […]

Born that way . . . why the excuse is not valid

I was born this way I, like all babies, was born with a tongue thrust reflex. This is a very valuable reflex where the tongue forces any foreign material out of a baby’s mouth and prevents choking. For some babies, this means that things like pacifiers and bottles get pushed out as often as they […]

Connie Talbot–Is giving a child what she wants the right thing to do?

I received an email recently with links to videos showcasing Connie Talbot, the child singer who stole the show on Britain’s Got Talent in 2007.  At six years of age, the little girl displayed a great deal of natural talent, not only for singing, but for performing, standing all alone on that stage and belting […]

Unashamably weighing in on the political debates

Well, it’s another presidential election year, and once again the US is drowning in political rhetoric. Nothing shows the diametrically opposed political sides in the US more then the spewing of ideals over the airwaves on a primary night. Now that I’ve listened to several nights of speeches and promises, I’m ready to air some […]

Political opinions in inappropriate places

I’ve become a big fan of podcasting. You can find a free subscription on just about any given topic. My personal favorites swing between podcasts about Adobe products and anything having to do with writing and publishing, and I tend to veer away from podcasts with a political bent. I’ve tried a few here and […]
