Trump Fills the Vacuum

Over the past eight years, a lot of good things happened because of Obama’s economic policies.   But since he choose to remain low key about his achievements and nature abhors a vacuum, the loud mouth showman waiting in the wings is already filling up the empty space and saying, “Look what I’ve done, and I’m not even president yet.”

Besides, is it really possible that a black guy could have done all of that?


And many will choose to believe the showman.

Feeling Like Crap Since 11/9/16?

Inheriting Edith

After finding nothing in the thrillers, mysteries and trashy novels sections, I was just about to leave the store when I chanced upon, “Inheriting Edith,” by Zoe Fishman.  The back cover sounded mildly interesting and since I was desperate for something to read, I took it to the checkout counter.

Turns out it was a quick and uplifting read, delving into Alzheimer’s, suicide, adoption, secrets, relationships between mothers and daughters and a whole lot more.  So, if you woke up on the morning of November 9, 2016, feeling like crap and need a little bit of magic in your life, Inheriting Edith might be just what the shaman ordered.
