My son Anthony Sterling Rodgers, who I called “Lali,” died in my arms on the night of January 11, 2005. He was exactly six months old.

In terms of his eyes, they were blue.

I have never felt such fierce love as I did for Lali. …

Could medical marijuana be driving the real “Great Reset”?

Last week I wrote about the “Great Resignation” and reasons behind it: low job satisfaction, poor job treatment, low pay, bad managers, and lack of consideration for employees.

Why should people go to work at a place where they are little-valued, and more important: why should they stay in a…


Have you been thinking about quitting your job? You along with many others –

The “Great Resignation” is something that millions of US workers are doing. They’re quitting their jobs in ways they never have before. When the COVID-19 pandemic forced shut-downs and got everyone who could do so working from home, everyone dealt with it to the best of their ability. …

Protect yourself, your family, your friends, and loved ones

I saw some relatively content-free information about Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACES) on the front page of Medium and was sorely tempted to write a response blasting the celebrity detailing his own childhood issues to promote what looks like a commercial “nonprofit” about ACES. Have you heard of the ACES? he…

— Why Are They Bothering? It’s time for US to become the New Pioneers

First, let’s get something straight. We are “The Powers That Be.” When someone snorts and laughs at the idea there’s some shadowy group of six guys that runs the world, they’re right. If the majority of people get together and agree on the way things will go, they will run…

I’m not sure I can read another “branded” article by an “influencer.”

At this point in my life I’m not even sure what I’ve done all my life, it’s so different to what I see other people call “writing.”

I would prefer a child’s fairy tale or silly story to…

I’m not going to be another victim of Hillary Clinton

Yesterday I worked 15 hours. I know a lot of people do this every day but for me? It was brutal.

As I finally fell asleep after 1 a.m., I thought, okay, it would suck so hard if I had to work continuously and Clinton thugs broke in and murdered…

Why does Charleston, SC feel so heavy?

We just got back from Charleston, and while it is one of the most beautiful cities I’ve ever visited, I also believe its heaviness does not exclusively derive from the pressure of Low Country humid air.

Even by the water with the Atlantic breeze blowing, the weight of what Charleston…


The logos — they are so similar! But is the underlying service?

The communications/media giant has its work cut out

Should it take 3 hours to cancel HBOMax from your XFinity (Comcast) service and fail in your mission to add channels for a modest additional cost?

I say “no” but Xfinity (Comcast) has other ideas.

We don’t have many choices in internet living in Southwest Florida: the choice basically is…

When your life becomes sci fi

One of my spiritual children mentioned the other day that she identified as “she/her” but was no longer certain what that really meant. She calls me Xena so there’s that. Being a real woman in our times means being willing and able to whale on anyone to defend your life…
