Dick Chaney

Posted by Josephine On May 12, 2009 - 10:52 PM

 Today, I sent the following letter to the Voice of the People of the Chicago Tribune:

 I can see why Fox News or Rush Limbaugh would give Dick Chaney a podium to spew his lies and criticism of the current administration but why a network like CBS would host him (in a very soft interview) is beyond me.

May 10, 2009 MOTHER'S DAY

Posted by Josephine On May 09, 2009 - 01:34 PM

Tomorrow, May 10th is Mother's Day. I have a few ideas about motherhood that may make sense to you. OR NOT. My only credential is that I have been a mother several times. So I come by my opinion naturally, not academically.

You Gotta Love All Things Royal

Posted by Josephine On May 08, 2009 - 06:28 PM

Some of you may have seen a news item in last Sunday’s Chicago Tribune about a young couple discovered in their birthday suits, having a lusty sexual rump on the lawn of Windsor Castle. This sort of thing is wonderful raw material for what is known as ‘found poetry.’ A good example of this is what Saturday Night Live did last Fall during the presidential campaign with Sarah Palin’s comments. In that case they barely had to change a word for the satire to work.

The following is my attempt at ‘found poetry’ based on Sunday’s news item from London.

Freedom

Posted by Josephine On Apr 10, 2009 - 04:49 PM

I’ve been obsessed with the notion of freedom for a long time. It has been even more important since I retired from paid employment. The right side bar on this home page is just a very small example of the kinds of things one feels free to do once retirement strikes. All those items are fairly easy to discern; once the obligation on one’s time has been discharged. But is that all there is to freedom?
