A Valentine for POTUS

February 6, 2017


    Dear POTUS, This year, I’m sending you a Valentine, not because I love you or respect you, but because I love my country. And you are the duly-elected symbol of that country. You may not know that I love my country, since I’m not in the pro-life movement, I don’t attend church, fear […]

This New Orange Era: The Day After

January 23, 2017


There’s a novel I read, One Second After, about a high energy EMP (electro magnetic pulse) missile fired above the US by a country with which we were at war. EMPs kill no one directly. Instead, they cause all electronic activity to cease. In other words, computers stop computing, cars stop moving, cells stop working, and what […]

This New Orange Era: The Test of Journalism

December 8, 2016


On Wednesday, Donald Trump was interviewed via phone by Matt Lauer. Lauer, a genuinely nice guy, is not a heavyweight in the world of journalism.

Good LBL vs Bad LBL

Furniture Shopping With Donald

October 8, 2016


  Donald, I’m so glad you suggested we go furniture shopping. I need a sectional real bad. It’s making me crazy. I think about sectionals all the time. My husband thinks I’m nuts. You came to the right person.  I know furniture. Nobody knows furniture like I do.  It’s furniture.  And I know it. Most […]

Trump Plays the Ultimate Game

August 29, 2016


Life in the Boomer Lane has spent quite some time now, being pummeled by the behavior of Donald Trump. She has listened to one Trumper after another explain why he’s their guy.  She has heard two themes over and over: The fist is that Trump is a successful businessman/He is rich. He will do for us […]
