So it's time for some change. […]

Here we are in a new year and I’m still signing my checks, “Please don’t kill me 2018!” I hope you have the best year yet in spite of all the challenges we may face.
I got my first pair of glasses nearly 10 years ago and remember seeing the world through new eyes. I’ll turn 45 this week and just got my third pair. This time I got progressive lenses; what old-timers would have called bifocals. These just don’t have the line across the lenses. With the updated prescription, […]
On a cold, cloudy afternoon at a presidential inauguration, Bruce Springsteen and Pete Seeger lead “This Land Is Your Land” from the steps of Lincoln Memorial.
We can finally scrape all of that 2016 goo away and move forward to 2017. I think this is going to be our year.
The horror of watching something terrible unfold right in front of you makes it nearly impossible to look away.
