Geneva comes from a political family. Her father, a Baptist preacher, marched with Martin Luther King, Jr. to Selma and he and Geneva's mother fought hard for Civil Rights in the communities where he pastored for over 50 years. Politics were part of Geneva's life early on and discussions about political issues were always part of any dialog with her father, mother, and siblings. She still "talk politics" whenever she calls her mother (her father died in 2000, less than a month before his 78th birthday) or brothers, John, James, or Joseph. Geneva also loves "talking politics" with her more politically inclined and open-minded friends. So, it is natural that as a writer, she'd write about politics. Geneva first created the Chit-Chat column when she worked for The Toledo Journal as a staff writer and it was kind of a homespun look back at her childhood growing up on the family ranch in Texas.
Later, when Geneva wrote the column for a
politically focused newspaper, she changed the focus of the column to politics and used the original spelling of her last name to create a play on words between "Chatman" and "Chit-Chat." Thus a quasi-political column was born. Occasionally, Geneva writes about other things, but usually writes about political matters. The purpose of the column is to open dialog and have a discussion. So, please add your comments, whether you agree or disagree. All opinions are welcome!
