I am a Free-lance writer/researcher who lives in Michigan. I
lived most of my life in Michigan but have also lived in California (from 1980 to 1988) and in Washington state from '78 to '79. I met and married a Thai woman while I was in California. Our 30th wedding anniversary was this past November. I did like living in California, I liked the activism and the international flavor there but after a couple of earthquakes my wife insisted we move. I was born in and spent most of my childhood in west Michigan. So we came to Muskegon, the place where I was orphaned when I was 7. That is another long story, perhaps for another time.

Obama's First Full Month Significant And Telling Obama's first full month as President was marked by clarifications in the difference in values between Republicans and Democrats with Republicans again showing their penchant for an austere, cold hearted overview of the sick, the poor and immigrants and an all too frequent scapegoating of these groups in a most base manner. Hopefully things and people will improve.
