Which Black and White Film are You?

Congratulations. You've scored Gilda! Sure, it's a love story, but a love story between the two coldest hearts on the planet. Okay, maybe just in Argentina. Really? As much as I love film noir and the comparison to Rita Hayworth...realistically, any movie representing me would have to be a screwball comedy!

Once More, With Feeling

A national health care plan is the most basic safety net conceivable because before you can count on retirement or even pursue happiness, you have to maintain your health--you have to live. Any democracy should be able to protect its citizens at least as far as their health is concerned and we are a great democracy. And if you cannot bring yourself to believe my arguments, I defy you not to have learned in the last year months that you never know quite what is around the corner and you very well may be the next American in need of help from your government.

Barbie, Why Bother?

When I heard they were making Mad Men Barbie and Ken dolls, I thought, "What a stretch, Betty Draper. They'll never make a Joan Holloway doll!" When I heard they were making a Joan Holloway doll I was so excited there were no words. That hair, that face, that shape, that...valentine! Joan is the ultimate temptress.

Spring Sewing

I’ve started my herbs and my Spring cool-weather crop of various greens and peas. What are you growing?

Presidents’ Day: Who Do You Love?

Government is distinct from politics, one is a matter of service and the other of self-interest. Not much good can come with the latter in domination and this President is trying to do something about that...and it makes me feel like this is the leader I've been waiting for my whole idealistic little life!

My Letter to Google Regarding the NSA

In forming our more perfect union, please note that no nexus of information collected on its citizens was part of the plan. In fact the opposite is true, agency information largely stays within that agency. If you're going to flout the very model of democracy you might as well go back to China and call it a day.
