The NFL is losing my support and viewership again in 2018

| August 14, 2018

It is so frustrating to see a handful of NFL players once again willing to offend A WHOLE BUNCH of patriotic fans —  including me — for another season with their kneeing or holding a fist during the playing of our National Anthem. I blame a handful of players, their union, the NFL commissioner and […]

Music Monday: Sunshine (go away today) by Jonathan Edwards

| July 23, 2018

When I think of “SUNSHINE,” it almost always lifts my spirits … even if it is a song with a “go away today” line … and dealing with a challenging time for many in the late 1960s and 70s. Still with all the depressing Vietnam War news and anti-war music, having one country folk song […]

As the Olivia Newton John song goes “Let’s get physical …”

| February 28, 2011

As the crowds of protesters dissipate in Madison Wisconsin (previous post), some of the more intense union members or bussed in supporters are still sticking around to get their point across. The Capitol police in Madison have for the most part been clearing out the state house and the door have been closes to prevent […]
