The 1950's. Now that was an era. I think today's America, the new America, was actually born in the '50s. I was fortunate enough to be born in Burbank, CA on April 4, 1950 and I still remember much of the '50s.
We lived in North Hollywood, CA and grew up just like the kids in the movie "Sandlot" (1993). It was pick-up baseball games, football,…Continue

When President Obama was pressed by Barbara Walters in a November 22nd interview about the failed roll-out of Obamacare and his legacy, he responded by saying "the good thing about when you're down is that usually you got nowhere to go but up."
His response begs the question, where do Americans go when they're down? What do we do? How do we…Continue

After 45 years in business at the same location on 25th St. and Western Ave. in San Pedro, Henry at Harbor Village Barbers wondered where all his business had gone. Down to one chair with a second barber coming in a couple of days a week, the shop's business was in a downward spiral.
This is a traditional manly man's barbershop. There are no stylists to be found…Continue

Forget complex business plans, a political overhaul or massive infrastructure projects. Maybe what will help save the crumbling city of Detroit is a rotating set of mower blades.
Detroit has been on the decline, financially and population-wise, for many years for lots of reasons, not the least of which is the troubled auto industry. With numerous abandoned homes and vacant lots dotting the city, it might be difficult to really call Detroit a “city” anymore. Urban blight, maybe, but…Continue

With the sky literally falling in Russia last week the conspiracy theorists are at it again. The Russians think the meteor was some new weapons system being tested by the Americans and many nuts just think it's the beginning of the end of the earth.

What's telling about the series of attacks in Southern California over the past week that left three people dead is the back story which psychologists say may go all the way to his childhood.
On Sunday Feb. 3, Dorner allegedly shot and killed a…Continue

I'm not a political person. I don't think like one or act like one. Maybe that's why I have such a hard time understanding the nature of the game. Be it family politics, corporate politics or government politics, I'm still baffled to this day by the need, of some, to lie, cheat, steal and orate their way to a better position in life.
But, I guess that's just human nature.
The newly coined phrase, from Maureen Dowd of the New York Times comes from the latest two-step by Jamie Dimon, CEO at JPMorgan, where he managed to orchestrate Wall Street's latest big bank debacle. He'll soon be "…Continue
