Posted on 07/15/14 at 09:51 am in response to Senate candidate Mike McFadden's 'groin gate' ad named best of summer

“He nails the all-American dad image with this advertisement, and when you are running against comedian-turned-senator Al Franken, it’s always good to be funny,” the magazine noted. The image that Dad's are doofuses? What's admirable about that?
The fact is that Al has NOT been funny as a senator, but has been, if anything, a sober policy wonk. Cyndy, why do you quote shoddy journalism? The ad has no new ideas, just the same recycled Republican messages which we've heard for months...

Nice to see that he's now understanding what's really important in life, and in politics. I hope it sticks. He's a bright guy who could do a lot of good by working for causes that really help people.

I've had several, and believe, arousal is about the farthest thought from my mind.

What do you propose as an alternative? The existing free-market system penalizes older people, those w/preexisting conditions, low income people.

What do you propose as an alternative? Going back to the private sector insurance companies controlling healthcare accessibility and costs?

What do you propose as an alternative? We've tried the private sector approach and that has given us years of travesty. How do you propose ensuring that all people have adequate healthcare coverage? Nothing new has been attempted. If we want to stop people from being denied insurance and declaring bankruptcy due to obscene medical bills, something has to be changed.

Interesting non-natural photograph credited to Reuters. It looks like a composite of Lake Calhoun with downtown matted in back???

Posted on 05/23/12 at 10:40 am in response to Feeding the poor: But is it healthy food?

My wife & I volunteer 1-2 times/month making & serving Breakfast on Saturdays at Sharing & Caring Hands. The food is generally high quality, with a variety of sources of protein, salads, and not much of the carbs topped w/fat that you'd expect. Yes, there are sweets, and many clients pour on the sugar and salt. But the food's usually a good mix of things; not what I'd expected when I started volunteering there.

Good article. Please send me or rewrite with the link to the purchasable chapter on Amazon.
