Margaret Bassett passed away August 21, 2011. She was a treasured member of the Opednews.com editorial team for four years.

Margaret Bassett--OEN editor--is an 89-year old, currently living in senior housing, with a lifelong interest in political philosophy. Bachelors from State University of Iowa (1944) and Masters from Roosevelt University (1975) help to unravel important requirements for modern communication. Early introduction to computer science (1966) trumps them. It's payback time. She's been "entitled" so long she hopes to find some good coming off the keyboard into the lives of those who come after her.

Social Security - Thanks Frances Perkins Social Security is an equal opportunity program. Hint: Grannies who tenaciously advocate saving it from obsolescence want to see that others agree. History involving Frances Perkins is a good starting point.

Don't Worry. Be Wary. Stay Informed. Who says we're not better off? Better off than in 1992. More organized than in 2008. Less naive than in 2006. And, in the author's view, more informed than in 2004 when the intellectual equivalent of Teeny Boppers' mantra on blogs was "Just wait!

A Not-so-Great Generation Meets what They Wrought Why the confusion now? A look back to the 60s' cultural revolution in most living rooms, one would find relationships just as tangled then. Age alone was not the determinant. At times it was almost like siblings in opposite paths. So with a new administration and a president born at the end of an 18-year span, what can the future promise?

All the News That's Fit to Cut and Paste What we call QuickLinks on OpEdNews is so prevalent in most online political sites that it's hard to believe we don't think of it as a source of news "you can't get anywhere else." Where do those QLs come from? As an editor, one of my chief sources comes from other sites' newsletters.

Who Works? Who Labors? Who Manages? Who's the Boss? It would be simplistic to allege than brain is replacing brawn. True the likes of Ford's River Rouge plant is history. But a car is a car. Modular parts require less hard labor and more attention to detail. Toyota admits as much.

My Old Age Benefit - My Childhood Heroine As a schoolgirl, I got shivers thinking about what old people would do if they had no place to go when they couldn't work--the Poor Farm, they called it. By the time I was in college we had what is known as Social Security. Others told me OAB funds were deducted from their paychecks at the rate of 1%.

Whatever Became of Dick Cheney? Cheney has a higher profile now than he did during much of his two terms as vice president, where his work was often behind the scenes and out of the spotlight. He's granted many interviews in which he's been critical of President Barack Obama and provided a sharp televised rebuttal to his speech on national security issues.

Town and Country - Adams and Jefferson Blue Dog Democrats, as a group of 51, are certainly rankling columnists and pundits. In the old question of Blue States versus Red States, there develops chatter of how Blue Dogs are turning Blue States into something resembling bilious chartreuse. Their Republican counterparts, who call themselves a Study Group, get off easier because they are just Republicans. In principle, they have similar guidelines.

What are the issues the US faces in a global crisis of bad economies and suspicious militaries? It's just that simple. How is it possible to avoid still more war when we are stretched thin from wars started, still not finished?

Hey, Boomer! Can We Talk Now? During the days of the Great Cultural Divide, I worked with those young enough to be my children. By way of explanation, much of this piece of history occurred during the infamous Democratic National Convention in Chicago in 1968. Since I worked a few blocks from Mayor Daley's home, part of my memories involves navigating to our near western suburb. And a large part includes hearing the events of the previous night.

Remembering the Unthinkable - Years Later In an effort to neaten my documents, I ran into this lament, stuck in a folder all by itself. I can only guess that it was written shortly after 9/11. All documents before August 16, 2005 have that date, since the browser crashed and we had to copy the hard drive. My best guess is that it was written before the middle of November, 2001, because it was then I had an injury to my hands and couldn't type for a long time.

Barack Obama's First Book This is not as much a book review as it is a memory trip. The writing is so good. And very honest. Born into the Luo tribe of Kenya with its tradition of polygamy makes for an interesting tale. The Senator became an organizer in Chicago, territory I left five years before he came.
