Train Safety vs. up-to-date Bathrooms

A few days after Donald Trump mentioned the pitiful state of American airports, a train accident tragically killed people in Hoboken. When Trump spoke, I thought that there are only a small minority of Americans who travel abroad and are aware of the advanced state of airports, trains, and travel in many foreign countries. But...

Soul Revival

While boating in British Columbia, I resemble nothing so much as Carol Burnett’s rendition of a charwoman. If I visited Victoria, Vancouver or dozens of smaller cities via airplane or car, I would dress as I usually do. Arriving by small boat, I tend to personify the essence of casual verging on bohemian. The change...

Debate Prep

Actually, I’m not talking about Trump or Clinton prep, but rather my own and that of other citizens. The Wall Street Journal yesterday had a fascinating piece contrasting serious policy debate, where elected officials lays out their beliefs while trying to decide public policy, from our current TV debates, where each individual basically does shameless self-promotion.  I...

Reconciliation or moving on?

Question: Thank you for the opportunity to ask my question.  I have been praying for a reconciliation with an ex for a fulfilling and loving relationship.  It’s been almost 11 months apart and since last Yom Kippur (Day of Atonement) I have been praying. Interacted with my ex a few times and found out recently...

Lots of Change, Maybe a Glimmer of Hope

After what sometimes seemed like an endless campaign season, the final stretch is in view. The debates, terrorism, Trumpian unpredictability and more Clinton scandals might make these last few weeks even more volatile than usual, but Election Day is approaching. It is time to remember Abraham Lincoln’s words, “With malice toward none.” I assiduously read...

You’ll Pardon Me, I Hope

You’ll pardon me, but in just the last few days, I have heard the word ‘crap’ used in public as a synonym for feces by the host of a popular television show, by an official of the Canadian Civil Liberties Association, and by a CNN news anchor, to name just three.  I am not going...

Wells Fargo vs. Hillary

I watched the video of Elizabeth Warren excoriating John Stumpf of Wells Fargo. I’m not saying that he is blameless or behaved nobly. However, there is supposed to be equal justice under the law. I would care more about her toughness to him if she would show the same toughness to politicians who are neither...

NY Bombings

If one powerful  political party and most mainstream journalists are highly invested in the NYC bombings NOT being connected to Islamic terrorism or any leftist group, do we really think that information will be shared quickly and honestly?...

Boaters World

Coming in to dock, those on nearby boats almost always head out to help grab your lines and be of assistance. A small part of this is self-interest. They want to make sure you don’t run into their boats. But mostly,...
