Civil rights at risk under Sessions

January 13, 2017

Confirmation hearings for Alabama Sen. Jeff Sessions, named by Donald Trump to be attorney general of the United States, began Jan. 10, before Trump is even inaugurated. The rush and insistence on only two days of hearings reflects Republican efforts to cram the nomination through before Americans understand what is at stake. Sessions will, no […]


There’s finally a grownup in Raleigh

January 6, 2017

We are only a few days into the New Year but two starkly different political styles are already on display in Raleigh. Newly elected Governor Roy Cooper is beginning his term by methodically announcing his choices for cabinet posts after calling Republican legislative leaders to inform them of his decisions. And they are good ones. […]


We are not exceptional – just average

December 29, 2016

We in these United States love to bask in the glory of our “exceptionalism.” We are great, we are wonderful, we dominate the world. Scholars who study “us” say that our exceptionalism is rooted in the fact that we have offered leadership in international affairs. We have committed more resources than other countries to the […]


What surely tainted our election? Voter suppression

December 28, 2016

The CIA conclusion that the Russians intervened in our elections in order to help elect Donald Trump has sent Washington into one of its fabled tizzies. President Barack Obama has ordered an intelligence agency report before he leaves office. Democrats and responsible Republicans are calling for congressional investigations. Pundits are arguing the Russians — combined […]


Love Trumps Hate

December 16, 2016

This is usually a season of familiar scenes in schools across the country, with holiday programs featuring messages of peace and goodwill to all. But this year many teachers and students have been seeing another story. In the week since the election I have personally had to deal with the following issues: 1) Boys inappropriately […]


So what are we seeing?

December 2, 2016

After having spent the last nine months surviving cancer, I’ve decided that the last thing I’m going to do is allow the incoming Trump presidential administration to do me in. After all, I’ve lived through Richard Nixon, Ronald Reagan, George H. W. Bush, and George W. Bush, and those five took us from ultimate government […]


Laughingstock

November 23, 2016

Once again North Carolina is the laughingstock of the nation, this time thanks to Gov. Pat McCrory’s inability to fathom two very simple words – YOU LOST! Call it ego, call it shame, or call it whatever you want … Patrick Lloyd McCrory, outgoing one-term Republican governor (if nothing else shifty gets in the way) […]


The World is Not Enough

November 17, 2016

If you and yours are still reeling from last week’s shocking presidential election results, trust me, you’re not alone. A night hasn’t gone by since Donald Trump was declared the next president of the United States when thousands of people have taken to the streets of various American cities, expressing their profound disgust and discontent […]


Your Vote Matters

November 4, 2016

If you are experiencing high anxiety due to this year’s U.S. Presidential election, you are not alone. This tumultuous election cycle presents voters with two very different choices. One choice is Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton, a woman who has spent her career working to make the lives of children and families better and whose campaign […]


Voter fraud and voter suppression

October 28, 2016

I watched the October 19 Presidential debate in both awe and horror. Awe – I truly do not understand Republican nominee Donald Trump’s temerity to lie, interrupt, sniff, sigh, and interject offensive comments (“such a nasty woman”) in lieu of disagreement. The horror came when Trump asserted that he would not necessarily accept the result […]
