Living In The New Gilded Age

by John December 8, 2017

Going back in time can be a fascinating wake-up call.

This Gilded Age mansion was built in the 1870s by the Vanderbilt’s. Inside this now-museum, you can relive the opulence and […]

What I’m Watching: Ken Burns’ Vietnam

by John December 7, 2017

A warning here.  US Baby Boomers and older might find this documentary series difficult to watch. I mentioned Ken Burns Vietnam to a Vietnam vet. “Why do I want to relive that again?” Then I remembered my flashback while watching the doc. It was 1967. I was 12 serving as an altar boy at the […]

Sorry, Football, I Think I Am Done

by John September 18, 2017

I have not seen one football game this season; only small portions; but with little or no interest. Baseball and golf seem to be my sports watching.  Will that change come November?  I don’t think so. Football holds no interest for me anymore. My head, heart, and gut say by watching I would be supporting […]

March 28, 2012: Day Reason Died in US Politics; Or Real First Day of Trump Revolution

by John August 14, 2017

The day was March 28, 2012.  It’s the day Congress officially — with both parties in majority agreement — killed the Simpson-Bowles Plan. This was a well-researched plan that could have: Reduced our debt while growing the economy Encouraged all segments of American society to sacrifice and work together to make our country truly great again.
