It was nearly four years ago, four years of chaos, of hate, of Donald Trump's messed up behavior. I've been thinking a lot about the march lately. I wrote about it before I had a blog. I created this blog as part of my fight against hate, lies, and the presidency of the orange one. … Continue reading Thoughts on the Women’s March
I'm tired today. I suspect a lot of us are, life has been like that lately. Yet today, I don't mean the tired in my heart, in my soul, sort of tired. I'm referring to the normal, I didn't get enough sleep, tired. And, no, it wasn't because I stayed up way too late waiting … Continue reading A Poll Worker
I posted this earlier to an Antiracist chat group I created on Facebook. I'm open to hearing your thoughts. A friend, who is also a member of this group (who can say "it was me" if they choose to), asked on a separate thread: Can Black people be racist? Frankly, it's a hard question and … Continue reading Hard Questions

I don't know who you saw so I … Continue reading Thoughts on Police….

It's a follow-up to my last two entries here. ________________________________________________________ First, I want to say thank you. I don’t know who drew on “my” corner, who wrote these words to Melrose, to me. My friend, City Councilor Jack Eccles, sent me the photo. … Continue reading More on “Who Is David”
A friend read what I posted earlier, asked if I am safe, well. I am. I'll ask his forgiveness for this statement: I think he knew I was well and recognized that we had been out of touch for a while and needed to reconnect. And we'll meet soon. I am well. And thank you … Continue reading I am well
This was originally published in a Melrose, MA Community Facebook group and on "The Melrose Patch", a local news site. An open message to the people of the City of Melrose: Look at my profile picture. Many of you have seen me on the corner of Essex and Main. I'm there three times a week. … Continue reading Dateline: Friday, August 21, 2020, Melrose, MA
