“We’re All Sick of It”

I donate blood through the American Red Cross. You can tell when it’s time to give again because they bug the shit out of me with daily calls and emails until I sign up to give. They caught me this weekend and convinced me to donate at a local blood drive that was held yesterday. … Continue reading

And So It Is These Days

And so it is these days.  When I’m out and about, I usually speak to people. Say hello. Compliment on a nice article of clothing or jewelry. Ask a question. True confession: I don’t do it solely to be nice; I also do it for self-preservation. I want to know what you’re made of. If an … Continue reading

Dog People vs. Cat People: Who’s More Dominant?

There have been studies into what personality traits in people lead them to choose a particular kind of pet.  I know you’ve heard of them before. Extroverts prefer dogs while introverts prefer cats (Edelson and Lester 1983). Cats lovers are more autonomous while dog lovers are more social (Kidd and Kidd 1980). So when Beatrice Alba … Continue reading

A Change is Gonna Come

The workings of the human mind fascinate me. Take the concept of belief, for instance. Belief is the acceptance that something is true or exists. A human being can convince him or herself just about anything is OK, whether there are facts backing it up or not. Some beliefs are socially acceptable, such as it … Continue reading

Why Do We Still Believe Sexism Doesn’t Exist?

I have questions.  Is Joy Behar truly sorry for her comments, or is she sorry she messed with the mostly female nursing profession when she dissed Miss Colorado for her monologue on her career as a nurse? And is it irony that she becomes more contrite as more sponsors break ties with The View? Is it … Continue reading

Taking Water for Granted

You don’t know how much you rely on something until it’s not there. Take water, for instance. I got up this morning and did what I always do first thing. Then I went to flush the toilet and……… nothing. Confused, I turned on the bathroom sink faucet. A small trickle. What? No water? But how will … Continue reading

Happy Labor Day!

Today is Labor Day in the US. It’s a day set aside to celebrate the American worker and how his or her work contributes to the American economy. Sadly, the meaning of the day has faded, and now most see Labor Day as the end of summer, the start of the school season, and the … Continue reading

Hey, God: When You’re Done Fixing Sporting Matches, I Could Use Your Help

During times of great stress, we humans tend to rethink our place in the Universe and whether or not there’s truly someone in charge. I’m doing that right now.  Is there really a benevolent overlord somewhere up in the sky pulling the strings that make us all dance and waiting for us to fuck up … Continue reading

Why Do We Hate the Poor So Much?

Jodi and Randy Speidel lived in Bellefontaine, Ohio. They were in their 40’s and both were unable to work due to chronic illnesses. They survived this past winter without gas heat, and could no longer afford to pay their water bill. They were unable to afford to feed their cats. So Mr. and Mrs. Speidel put … Continue reading
