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.

* Here you see a small increase in cases while deaths remain constant. In a time-frame of six minutes (9:18am to 9:24am). Sometimes it's a useful datapoint. Comparison is easier because you have one set of numbers that's a constant, against which you can see the movement in the other set of numbers. At least - seems to me. I didn't take statistics classes in college. This is just observation of trending. Amateur observation of trending. I'm not a professional. But the numbers tell stories and I have been a professional in that.

Yes indeed. We need to MAKE SURE that happens.

All the apologists and excuse-makers and whores and other assorted cowards need to be reminded again and again and again.

They must NEVER be allowed to hide or escape or try to deny or claim they “always knew he was no good.” Hell, they’ve been on their knees licking his feet since he became “viable” last time around.

No escape. This is the indelible mark on the soul.

I’ve had my share of screw-ups in life but at least I don’t have to worry about facing THAT question when the time comes to answer to St. Peter at the Pearly Gates.

Gums did it.

Stinks too bad even for the Mercers!?!

Whoa! Must be pretty stinky! That’s never stopped them before.

And we better make sure no one forgets that!

No shit.

Be glad it's not a full body image, donald...

Its being shown only from the shoulders spares you from a few graffiti indignities.

Could be somebody else is soon gonna be embellishing that one with a Sharpie.

Welcome to DU, PirateRo!

Yes you’ve been here for awhile but it’s nice to “read your voice”!

Onion slicing over here, too...

What a beautiful image. Does get one kinda choked up...

How badly we need leadership we can trust and look up to!
