Comparing Austin and Baton Rouge

For as far back as I can remember, comparisons have been made between Louisiana’s state capitol city and Austin, Texas. In the 1960s the population of both cities were about the same. Austin and Baton Rouge were the homes of both the centers of state government and the location of each state’s major university. Both cities were laid back and growing at an average southern pace. So how do they rate today?

​Trump’s last chance for a wall

By the time you read this, you’ll know whether the federal government has been partially shut down for the holidays.
You’ll also know whether Donald Trump had the political courage and brains to do what Republicans running Congress have failed to do for two years – put their butts on the line to fund a stronger border wall on our southern border.
And you’ll know whether the president’s chances for getting reelected in 2020 have gone up or down.
Going into Friday, everything about a potential government shutdown over Trumps’ wall was still up in the air.

The holidays offer us a second chance!

Most of us have been swept up in the momentum of the holiday season. We have passed Thanksgiving, reached the Christmas milestone and are approaching New Year’s Day, the third in the trilogy of holidays.
Sure, there is a lot of our attention on holiday shopping, football, and social events. But it is also a time to reflect of what the three holidays can mean to all of us.  A second chance, and maybe even a new beginning.

Children’s Christmas gifts to adults brings joy

I love Christmas.
I love it because my mother has worked hard to make the day magical and eventful for her family for more years than she will permit me to share!
My mother has six children, 17 grandchildren and nine great-grandchildren — and counting. Every Christmas, we, along with a mix of cousins, aunts and uncles, gather in my parents’ home.

Three good men; Three Great kids’ books

Men get a bad rap. They’re blamed collectively for rape culture, violence, war, poverty, climate change and all other manner of global suffering. They’re forced to apologize on college campuses for their chromosomes, anatomy and athleticism. They’re vilified incessantly in women’s magazines, on women’s talk shows and at women’s confabs promoting the male-bashing #MeToo movement.
Not me.
