What I learned on my summer vacation!

“We cannot change society until we change ourselves” I sit in a London hotel room with a raging tooth infection that had been quelled before I came to Europe with antibiotics.

The Essence of the Unicorn

Last Day in Paris Yesterday I went to the Pompidou Center. It is a remarkably designed building. The tubes on the outside contain escalators that take people to the floors of the exhibits.

AMERICA FEARS A WOMAN MORE THAN A RACIST

I am pushing 70 and I have lived in a sexist world all those years; yet, I have been appalled at the hatred that young women have expressed to me against Hillary Clinton. Even older women have told me how she lies, how she supports corporate America over people’s interests, that she can’t be trusted. I […]
