ARE DEMOCRATS AS WOKE AS THEY THINK? After the results of the last Democratic contest, it was pretty obvious that voters were not interested in the female candidates, at least not in South Carolina. So why is that? You probably won’t find many people who will openly admit they wouldn’t vote for a woman candidate. In fact, a […]
What’s Wrong With You Oprah and the Rest of You Agents and Literary Publishers?
I finally got around to reading Oprah’s review of American Dirt. I have to say I didn’t read the book myself, because when I skimmed through it, it looked like a dozen other books I’ve seen about poor uneducated Mexicans living the immigrant’s struggle. So far that’s pretty much the total of what I’ve seen in the way of literature […]
How Much Is That Baby In The Window?
How Much Is That Baby In The Window If you grew up in the fifties as I did, I know you probably heard that cute little song; How Much Is That Doggie In The Window? If you remember, it was cute. Right? I forgot about that song. It came to mind a few times when my kids were small, and […]
A Woman Like Me Review by Daniella Poloni
Reviewed By: Daniella Poloni This is a thriller unlike one that I have read before. Its unique themes that track through an entire lifetime make the reader intrigued each step of the way. From the beginning, we see how trauma and questionable childhood situations lead to a life full of equally questionable choices and considerable identity issues. What makes this […]

A Woman Like Me Review by Tony Rodriguez
Reviewed By: Tony Rodriguez Review Rating: 5 Stars – A Hell of a Tale! Reviewed by Tony Rodriguez for Amazon “A Woman Like Me” takes the reader on a journey, a struggle, a discovery. It does this in much the same way as life does; gradually and almost inexorably. The reader is swept up in the protagonist’s events, struggles, victories, […]
On Friday the 13th, I was doing some shopping and got tired walking partway around the mall, (something that seems to happen a lot more often now). The mall, or even the smallest portion of it, zaps more of my energy than the mile and a half I walk my dog every day. I sat down on […]
Does Everyone On The Right Think The Same?
I was looking at an old posting that showed Ellen DeGeneres with former president, George Busch, watching a football game. They looked relaxed and friendly, just like old friends would look, hanging out together. The photo brought to mind the year 2005, when Hurricane Katrina hit Louisiana and the negligence and indifference of the administration at that time brought to […]
