A Voice from Superstorm Sandy-Struck New Jersey

The paragraphs below were written by a New Jersey resident,  @mblakeperdue, who expresses without rancor his frustration with not only the slow response to the storm’s aftermath, but also his disappointment and dismay by the dearth of proactive measures taken by all levels of government as the long-predicted storm approached the East Coast.

Do the Wealthy Work Harder Than the Rest?

I know this is a daring concept and one that likely does not sit well with some–especially those who believe that a 40-hour week is a God-given right. As a former teacher, I cringe when I hear bleating from teachers who complain that they are overworked and underpaid.  Sure, teachers’ salaries aren’t very high–and some …

Happy Anniversary to One of My Favorite Inventions!

On March 7, 1876, Alexander Graham Bell patented  the telephone. The first switchboard began operating in Boston in 1877. I absolutely love talking on the phone…landlines, cell phones–I even miss pay phones and those cozy little phone booths!   In fact, if it weren’t for Mr. Bell’s wonderful invention, I would have missed out on all those delightful …

The Rumor About Romney is TRUE!

Sometimes, just for the fun of it, I listen to liberal talk shows on XM radio in my car.  In spite of the fact the the GOP has yet to select its presidential nominee for the 2012 election, most Obama supporters seem to believe that Mitt Romney will be that nominee, and it is never …
