Born in Long Island public school year in Sweden as exchange student, went to Harvard one year, Cooper Union in NYC as Art student. Have two children, one of whom is rock mogul, the other has three daughters, one of whom has two daughters, making me a great grandmother at 68, very proud. For twenty years I operated a private primary school, Orchard School, in Santa Cruz CA. Still going strong but I'm retired and write much of the time. Strong believer in the space program and our subconscious quest as a species to prevent celestial onslaughts of one kind and another, for which it is my conviction that we have developed nuclear power, though we've had to use false wars to do so; in the end I believe we'll redeem ourselves in this way, which is why I find the abandonment of the shuttle program so sad. The Russians will do the honors with the next menace from Heaven, or have said that they will. In any case, nothing matters much if we don't, not the debt ceiling, pollution, nothing. All moot.

Could it be that his anger at the SNL jests at his expense is a function of his vague awareness that there's something 'special' about him, and hence that mocking him is sadistic?
Knowing this and sharing it with him might open a dialogue that many would welcome, and ignite creative theories about the nature of disorders that could lead to better management of them; especially if such a famous guy was at the helm.

My take on the Oscars as display ritual for our national political drift. The monopoly of film might be sturdier than it seems. Is it expression, induction, or both? Does the Left have what it takes to make change, or are we wimps by definition?

Just thoughts, reflections on the ultimate effect of Trump's presidency, ironic in the face of his protestations of conservatism, born apparently of his addiction to FOX News.

Is there any point in voting? I think it's nothing but a huge distraction from the facts.

To vote for Hillary Clinton, I'd have to abandon a conviction that has evolved over the decades, as I've been around a while. I don't have high hopes for her as Commander in Chief.

As the future belongs to them, perhaps we should simply equip our children to deal with it and go away.
