Touristas and Baristas

August 29th, 2017, No Comments

There is a helpful website for tourists about the nature of crimes perpetrated against travellers, sponsored by the University of Albany. The conclusions were drawn by a 2017 conference obviously thrown together in an effort to keep the job-rich tourist industry thriving, rather than merely surviving. Global unrest has many persons taking ‘stay-cations’ where the […]

MY DEMANDS

July 24th, 2017, No Comments

I’m holding the United States Constitution hostage inside American bookstores until you meet a few simple demands. When you look at the shelves where those are located, hear these words in your ears. Born in Washington Heights, N.Y., my grandparents and parents showed the youngest daughter of the house the great potential to be nurtured […]

Modernizing the Hitler Youth

http://www.timesofisrael.com/belgian-jewish-student-gassed-with-deodorant-by-classmates-in-showers/ This blog has a long history of detailing incidents of chemical poisoning by both accident and intent. Following the Environmental Protection Agency’s request that I litigate my own chemical injuries due to negligence, my medical and legal files showed ongoing harassment resulting from that action. A settlement offer was never made and my lawyer […]

On The Case…

…of my missing suitcase. I’m sitting at the Fiumicino Airport like a Golem, with no suitcase due to the bizarre games people play with cellphones and MP3 players. Following the favorable weather for my health and my pocketbook, I’m presently in Italy. Taking a bus from Roma Center to the airport for lodgings, my youthful […]

“If You See Something, Say Something”

December 3rd, 2015, No Comments

From Sarin in the Tokyo subways to anthrax in the post offices of the Eastern Seaboard in the USA, biological injuries are not to be ignored. The public is remarkably reticent about reporting these problems despite a frightening familiarity with headache onset at the dry cleaner, dizziness at the nail salon and nausea when passing […]

Your Money AND Your Life – The USA

October 27th, 2015, No Comments

The comedian, Jack Benny, used to answer this demand with the phrase, “I’m thinking, I’m thinking.” For Judge Wiggins of Marion, Alabama, that question was deemed part of the legal process in his courtroom. Life is no idyll for a judge in post-constitutional America but judicial review of process is not a dispensable part of […]

Dear Politicians (and voters)

September 30th, 2015, No Comments

Dear Politicians, You have all been reading the ‘linked in’ website for too long and refuse to follow a single thread of policy, from start to finish, without a comparison being drawn. There are no discussions of protecting the vulnerable populations without pointing at a less vulnerable group to blame for …, invulnerability perhaps? We […]

Nuclear Proliferation – More Than One Kind

September 3rd, 2015, No Comments

The United Nations Office for Armament Affairs offers up a history of agreements for the non-proliferation of nuclear weapons begun in 1968. Extended indefinitely in 1995, there are 190 signers of this agreement limiting increases of these devices. While everybody has been involved in that endeavor, war has neither ceased nor desisted. There is yet […]

Shown the Gate at Gatwick

July 14th, 2015, No Comments

The late humorist Alan King published many a tale lamenting the problems of travelers parted from their possessions. The dearly departed luggage was often better travelled than the owner by the time a suitcase reappeared from orbiting the earth. In my own situation, my trusty hard case met with an accident that should rightfully be […]

Right to Privacy or Right to ‘Come In’?

October 21st, 2014, No Comments

The American obsession with gender identity has again reared itself into the mainstream, this time in Texas.  The start of this remarkable storm began with a rather ‘old’ issue of where people identifying as a gender different than that expected by mere, anatomical study ought to go to the bathroom.  Public access to bathrooms is extremely important […]
