About Me

Female. Retired. Wife-Mom-Grandma. Approx. 30 years in broadcasting, at least 20 of those in news biz. Taurus. Loves chocolate - preferably without nuts or cocoanut. Animal lover. Rock-hound from pre-school age. Proud Democrat for life. Ardent environmentalist and pro-choicer. Hoping to use my skills set for the greater good. Still married to the same guy for 40+ years. Probably because he's a proud Democrat, too. Penmanship absolutely stinks, so I'm glad I'm a fast typist! I will always love Hillary and she will always be my President.

Good Grief it's like we're back in the Nixon era.

Back then there was “Nixon Knew”.

AND there was a “Bush KNEW.” I even had a bumper sticker of that.

Fitting.

The lyrics fit perfectly. As thought they were written about trump. Did Fogerty ever meet him?

Sheesh...

As spanone put it: ABSOFUCKINGLUTELY!!!

OMG, I wanted to BE Mrs. Peel. OMG I absolutely idolized her. Emma Peel. I wanted that figure. I wanted those catsuits. I wanted that unfathomably cool chic. I wanted to dress like that. I dreamed about being the cool, slinky crime-fighter with the male partner with whom to share that droll, impossibly clever repartee. I wanted to have karate at my fingertips like she did. Those moves! Indeed, years later when I started studying karate, I thought of her, and though how I'd finally be learning some of her moves. I was STILL a Mrs. Peel wannabe.

"Mrs. Peel, we're needed!"

Rest in peace, Dame Diana. You were one of my most powerful inspirations when I was at a most powerfully impressionable and physically self-conscious young age. I've loved and admired you for more than 50 years.

And here's a real "chuckler" - why Bob Woodward kept his mouth shut til now.

According to the AP,

Woodward defends decision to withhold trump's virus comments
"If I had done the story at that time about what he knew in February, that's not telling us anything we didn't know," Woodward said.


Uh ...







I'm speechless. Okay, I'm hardly on an equal footing as a (retired) reporter with somebody like Bob Woodward. But FOR PETE'S SAKE!
"Not telling us anything we didn't know"????????

We didn't know the extent of the damage COVID-19 could do. NOBODY did. Not the best doctors, researchers, hospital staffers, first responders, NOBODY. All we knew was this orange jackass telling us it was a HOAX, it was 15 cases that were gonna shrink down to zero, that it would just go away like a miracle, just like that! By April the numbers were gonna drop. It'll just disappear. Like magic. It's cool! What, me worry?

And WAY too many people by early this year were thoroughly conditioned to cling to, and even bet their lives upon, every goldtone-painted word out of Der Orange Fuhrer's mouth as though it were taken straight from one of the Gospels.

"Not telling us anything we didn't know"???????????????

Hell, even Dr. Fauci got a few things wrong, way back then, when this was just beginning to take hold (FEBRUARY, and even into MARCH). WHEN WE DID NOT KNOW THAT MUCH ABOUT THE VIRUS YET. And he's already admitted that.


But hey, I've got a book coming out. It's in my book. Buy my book!




Same here, pat phil.

Catholic school K-12.

I like your "CINO" reference.

"Christian In Name Only."

Fitting, sadly enough.

I keep thinking about that two-word gut-punch: "Jesus wept."
