ACLU Comes to Allentown

March 9, 2010 by  
Filed under News, Politics

One of my favorite “veg out” movies is "American President". Michael Douglas is President Andrew Shepherd, the leader of the free world, who has lost his ideals in the political morass that is Washington. He’s under pressure from a conservative challenger in the upcoming election, and when the Pres finally regains his bearings, he delivers […]

Purple Pride in Iraq

Filed under News, Politics, Women

The Academy Awards, the tragic death of a beautiful young woman in California, the arrest of an Al Qaeda leader, flashed across our news screens and newspapers the past few days. Unless you’re a real news junkie, you could have easily missed an event that didn’t receive much coverage in the main stream media.   To […]

A somewhat amusing but hauntingly true depiction of The United States’ dependency on China from the entertainment group “Capitol Steps”.

Allentown’s Cell Phone Ban & My Car Saga

Filed under Absurdity, Life, News

A few days ago I wrote about my search for a new car and the negative experience I had with one local dealer, who I’m not naming, publicly. (All of you who have emailed directly to ask who it is, know that I’ll be glad to name them, privately.) The lease is up on my […]

According to a story on Mashable, the online social media guide and clearing house for all things internet, the competition for the Google High-speed Fiber Optics Network, is really heating up. Cities from around the country are mounting very public campaigns, including Topeka, Kansas, who temporarily changed their name to Google, Kansas…the capital city of […]

Spinning the Google Wheel of Fortune

The last time I visited the Sand’s Casino, I took a good look around: You could tell some people were simply out for an evening’s entertainment, but others looked down on their luck and desperate. If they could just hit the jackpot…their life would change. Allentown has a chance to hit the technology jackpot. The […]

A Little Help For Our Friends

March 2, 2010 by  
Filed under Life

I’ve written many times about my two trips to Afghanistan: The impact those experiences had on me was life-altering. And although the security situation has  prevented me from returning, at least for now, it has not lessened my commitment to continue assisting the women entrepreneurs of Bpeace in whatever way I can. That is why […]

What Recession? Go Away, You’re Bothering Us

Filed under Absurdity

I’m about to enter the dreaded “new car zone”…that black hole of fear and uncertainty, where we wander aimlessly until we emerge on the other side with more horsepower and gadgets than we need having spent more money than we intended. I go through this exercise every 3 to 4 years. This time I was […]

Welcome to the "new and improved" Perspectives

March 1, 2010 by  
Filed under Uncategorized

After a longer than anticipated hiatus from blogging, it feels good to be back in the computer chair and filled with thoughts to share. This new incarnation of Perspectives represents a long-held theory of mine that in life you can have it all, just not all at the same time: Life is a series of […]
