They, Themselves, and They

What happened to Duty, Honor, Integrity, Justice, and Precedent in Government service employment? Unlike my past career environment, I retired from the US Government Employment. I find more than a few highly visible, politically placed current employees have lost their way. No longer are those words seen as a barometer of efficiency inside those public…

AWOL, Truth and Compassion

Oh Truth & Compassion, Where for art thou? I see those traits every day when out in public. Anyone who is paying attention to who and what is said around them sees those traits in action at their supermarket, gas station, etc. Yet there is always one in the crowd. The odd person out, Mr….

Maturity comes with a Price and Responsibility

For as long as I can remember, I’ve never run away or shied away from who I am. By that I mean my birthright or race. Oh, I’ve had my questions of why I had to live with my father instead of my mother after their divorce. But then I finally resolved that idea by…

On the Downslope of Life

The kid is no longer the kid. I’m a baby boomer on the downslope of life. At an age where I have no patience with selfish, racist, liars, or people without good principles.

Before that of course but let’s begin during that time. Congress forbade any federal funding for the Nicaragua Contras in 1983. An order which the Regan administration ignored and…

This Country Has Elected A Trump Type Before

The candidates are rounding the half mile heading for the finish line. Who will win? The race is still up in the air. On the one hand, we had a clear favorite as much as a week ago. That is until the Republican-leaning FBI Director broke protocol and injected himself into the race. You all…

It’s Much Deeper Than The Donald’s Audio Tape

Wow! It took an audio tape where the Donald was clearly heard talking about grouping women in general and one woman in particular. A tape where he actually used the P word when referring to a woman’s gentiles.  That’s where numerous elected  Republicans, some who are running for office on this year’s ballot draw the…

Kyle & Jamal’s 2001 Crawford, Texas Vacation

Let’s meet and follow our favorite Flies on the Wall, Kyle and Jamal.    Authors Note, April 27, 2016: In 2001, I created two characters for my Katara-Rhythm on-line newsletter. I thought of the old familiar term, “If I could be a fly on the wall.” This was my inspiration for created Kyle & Jamal….
