Isn’t this what I worked for?

The question is peculiar, “isn’t this what I worked for?” as it comes long after my “release” from my last job in the not-so-beloved Corporate America. I asked myself something akin to that query 7½ years ago as I was coming off my recent firing (laid off). Having taken a rare trip out of Florida… Read more »

How’s it going?

A few weeks back, I went through a series of posts where I grudgingly admitted I have lived a reasonably interesting life. While that’s all well and good (and a needed boost to self-esteem), the fact is my interesting bits are more the product of unique or special events or periods in my life. For… Read more »

I’m too young or too healthy to watch cable news

We need less personality

Jumping from yesterday’s post, I referenced the loss of trust that exists across too many aspects of our lives. It goes far beyond the government or law enforcement. It’s pervasive in our school systems, our workplaces and even our homes. When trust is lacking, suspicion often fills the vacancy and nowhere is this more apparent… Read more »

No news is bad news

Really bad. Awful. Hard to watch, read or hear. I’m sure you’ve noticed. How could you not? We’re surrounded with it constantly. I was hoping the occasion of the once-every-four-years presidential election process might provide some relief, but I underestimated the proliferation of “news” sources, made even more ineluctable by the presence of the internet….
