About Me

Female. Retired. Wife-Mom-Grandma. Approx. 30 years in broadcasting, at least 20 of those in news biz. Taurus. Loves chocolate - preferably without nuts or cocoanut. Animal lover. Rock-hound from pre-school age. Proud Democrat for life. Ardent environmentalist and pro-choicer. Hoping to use my skills set for the greater good. Still married to the same guy for 40+ years. Probably because he's a proud Democrat, too. Penmanship absolutely stinks, so I'm glad I'm a fast typist! I will always love Hillary and she will always be my President.

Rest in Peace - or maybe not.

You've gotta go find Sid Caesar and Imogene Coca and the rest of the gang up there and start putting a show together. Gonna have to wait for Mel Brooks to get there but his wife, Anne Bancroft, is already up there and you know she's saving him a seat.

Better get to work! You're gonna have The BIG Guy in the audience.

Yep. Bet they'll say they're "pro-life."

But that ONLY includes whatever's inside a woman's private parts. And that's the extent of it.

The lives of black people.
The lives of other POC. - Latinos, Asians, and many more.
The lives of poor people.
The lives of people who don't donate to their campaigns, or vote for Democrats.
The lives of people in blue states.
The lives of children - especially immigrant children (caged or not).
The lives of people in urban areas.
The lives of Democrats in general.
And the list goes on. With him, it's a list that's freakin' ENDLESS.

I once shared spit with Carl Reiner.

I went to interview him at his home in Beverly Hills. I was led to a large, sunny indoor terrace that had the usual large sofas and chairs and lovely decor, and a small bar in one corner - as every home had, years ago. There was always a bar area with a counter and sink, cabinets for all kinds of cocktail glasses and bottles of fine liquor for entertaining, drawers for knives and stirring and mixing utensils.

And at one point in the interview he got up from where he was seated and asked if I'd like an egg cream.

Okay, an egg cream with Carl Reiner. I had a moment there - what a perfect existential moment with someone like Carl Reiner - to toast with an egg cream. Which he was about to produce - homemade. By him. So I rolled tape on it, leaning in over the bar with my microphone. And he described the how-to steps as he worked. So I got the sound of the spoon stirring the mix inside the glass. And he then he took the spoon and tasted it. Pronounced it fit. And then he stuck the same spoon back down into the mix and stirred it a final time. Just like your dad might have done. And then the pouring. And we toasted. And yep, it tasted like an official regulation egg cream. Handmade by "ol' Uncle Carl." With an ever so slight dash of spit.

I thought - I have just gone to Borscht Belt/Show of Shows Heaven.

God bless you, Carl Reiner! He's probably designed a special house in heaven with an in-home entertainment area for doing shows and comedy bits, screening room for the films He'll want you to make, AND the corner bar for the blending of heavenly egg creams - that He will want you personally to stir up for Him. And don't forget to share the spoon!

Indeed. Get well soon, H2OMan! Thanks for letting us know, malaise.

Virtual to you both.

Yep. Truth.

Like Mad-Eye Moody warned Harry Potter about the bad guys who wished him ill - "CONSTANT VIGILANCE!!!"

They don't roll over and go back to sleep. So we can't. We don't dare.

Welcome to DU, Staph!

I can appreciate how you feel. I went to a college that was this little island of liberalism in a conservative sea. Happy to see that area has trended more and more toward blue through the years.
