About Me

Female. Retired. Wife-Mom-Grandma. Approx. 30 years in broadcasting, at least 20 of those in news biz. Taurus. Loves chocolate - preferably without nuts or cocoanut. Animal lover. Rock-hound from pre-school age. Proud Democrat for life. Ardent environmentalist and pro-choicer. Hoping to use my skills set for the greater good. Still married to the same guy for 40+ years. Probably because he's a proud Democrat, too. Penmanship absolutely stinks, so I'm glad I'm a fast typist! I will always love Hillary and she will always be my President.

An EXCELLENT point! Absolutely!

I'm glad they jumped right on this. They don't have much time.

I cannot get that image out of my mind - a graphic of "GOP" with

A womanís face in the ďOĒ in GOP with a manís hand clamped over her mouth.


I feel like thatís what the republi-CONS are trying, rather desperately, INCREASINGLY desperately, to keep on doing that to women.

Take it to the bank. They STILL want to be able to do that to women. To silence women. To muzzle women. To discount and dismiss and demean women - our feelings, our experiences, our worldview, hell, even the most basic bedrock of WHO. WE. ARE.

No kidding.



Said it all, over here:


As I was watching Kavanaugh's sturm und drang about how offended and violated he feels

and oh what it's done to his reputation and his family and their lives have been destroyed - all I could think of was: "gee, dude, now you know how it feels to be a woman."

I woke up depressed this morning. Feeling like all is lost. I went to bed feeling that way

last night. Yesterday was such a hard, dark, grueling day. I'll never forget that remark by former prosecutor Cynthia Alksne during the first break of the morning session when the coverage switched back to the anchor studio - "Half of America is crying." I was certainly one who did.

So I was stunned to see the tide turning. Grateful as hell, but still stunned.

I'm almost afraid to breathe.

My husband said that in terms of "judicial temperament," Dr. Ford behaved like the one

who should be headed for a Supreme Court seat, not this wild-ass out-of-control snarling red-faced human explosion.

I do too.

Thatís a good way to put it, IluvPitties.
