- I was born the same year Kennedy was assassinated. My parents got divorced during the Summer of Love ('67) I'm not a journalist, I'm just a dedicated Democratic Library Assistant with a lot of bottled-up rants. But I'll try to be amusing when possible.
My Late Friend Kim would agree with this:
"Nobody should die because they can't afford Health Insurance. Nobody should go broke because they get sick." Teddy, Greg and Roger, I'm SO with you on this one. And also with everyone else displaying this.
"I wrestle like Jane Austen and write like Jesse 'The Body' Ventura."
Justice must be done for Trayvon Martin.

*Take a moment, and try to imagine (for one horrifying moment) how it would be if Senator. Ted Cruz of Texas had formed a well, highly unlikely relationship with Theodore Geisl, better known to the world as Dr. Seuss, best selling children's author. I'm guessing Dr. Seuss' body of works m… Read full post »
