RE SMOKING, MY MOTHER DIED OF ALCOHOL AND CIGARETTES AT AGE 56. THE WORST THING, THAT NO ONE WILL TAKE ON, IS THAT HBO REQUIRES ALL BUT THE BIGGEST STARS TO SHOW PEOPLE SMOKING. SHOWS LIKE "GIRLS" HAVE SCENES OF YOUTH SMOKING. WHY THE POWER OF HBO?  I'M A BLIND OLD LADY SO TELL YOUNG FOLKS TO STOP SMOKING. I TELL THEM OF MY MOTHER, AND ADD TO WOMEN THAT MORE THAN ONE AND HALF OUNCES OF ALCOHOL WRECK THEIR LIVERS. SAY "IMITATE OBAMA, AND  CHEW NICORETTE GUM.  A FRIEND AGE 69 FROM CANADA WILL NEVER BE ABLE TO VISIT HERE AGAIN. SHE HAD HEART ATTACK WHILE HERE. MY BROTHER CURED HER WITH TOUGH LOVE, BY SHOVING A LIT CIGARETTE DOWN HER THROAT. A DOCTOR FRIEND CHEWS NICORETTE GUM. H'ED SMOKED FOR TWENTY YEARS. NOW JUST HAD PARTS OF HIS THROAT REMOVED, HOPEFULLY IT WON'T RETURN. 

ALSO COVER 'REBELLION IN BLACK AND WHITE: southern student activism in the 1960s". WHEN I TELL MOST NYERS I'M FROM THE SOUTH AND WAS IN THE CIVIL RIGHTS MOVEMENT, IF THEY'RE WHITE, THEY OFTEN ASK, "ON WHICH SIDE?" IF YOU CAN FIND AN AFRICAN AMERICAN IN NYC, THEY'LL SAY "THAT'S WHY THEY CALLED IT A MOVEMENT." DUH. BUT NO ONE WANTS TO COVER US. LOVED HILLARY SAYING 'RACISM IS ALL OVER THIS COUNTRY." WORST PART: SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA. THE BEST DAY IN MY LIFE WAS PICKETING A SEGREGATED MOTEL OUTSIDE CHAPEL HILL, NC, ALONE AT AGE 18. I WAS CURSED, SPAT AT, THINGS THROWN, BUT I KNEW IT WOULD HAVE BEEN WORSE HAD I BEEN AN AFRICAN AMERICAN WOMAN OR LETHAL FOR A BLACK MAN. THE WORST DAY WAS MEETING A "NEGRO" DUKE STUDENT, THE SCHOOLS HAD JUST INTEGRATED, BUT I'D LEFT EARLY TO GO TO UNC. WE TALKED A LONG TIME, THEN JUST LOOKED AT EACH OTHER. IN  LOVE. I WANTED TO GIVE HIM MY PHONE NUMBER. HE WANTED TO ASK FOR IT. SADLY,  THE KKK WERE JUST OUT OF TOWN. WE WOULD HAVE HAD BEAUTIFUL CHILDREN. I STILL MISS HIM. A FRIEND WAS NAMED CORDELL BLACK; MINE WAS APRIL WHITE. WE'D LINK ARMS TO  SING "BLACK AND WHITE TOGETHERRR.." CHAPEL HILL HAS HAD AT LEAST ONE AFRICAN AMERICAN MAYOR. WHERE WE SAT IN AT THE CROSSROADS OF THE MAIN DRAGS IS MLK BLVD. WHERE WE MARCHED BETWEEN CHAPEL HILL AND DURHAM, IS ANOTHER,  AND A THIRD IN FAYETTEVILLE. ZERO IN NYC BELOW RAPIDLY GENTRIFYING/WHITEIFYING HARLEM.

Neera Tanden, the president of the Center for American Progress who is informally advising Hillary Clinton on policy, told ABC News she hoped New York Mayor Bill de Blasio -- with whom she served on the former secretary of state's 2000 campaign for Senate -- would eventually endorse their former boss, adding that Clinton had highlighted de Blasio's "signature" issues years before he had himself.

De Blasio has said he wants to hear more specifics from Clinton before making a decision.

What do YOU think?
While a U.S.-led coalition continues to strike militants in Iraq and Syria, House Speaker John Boehner said President Obama’s current strategy is insufficient to eliminate the threat posed by ISIS. “If the goal is to destroy ISIS, as the president says it is, I don’t believe the strategy that he outlined will accomplish that,” Boehner told ABC News Chief Anchor George Stephanopoulos in an exclusive interview for ABC News in Portland, Maine, this ...

You need to stop letting Trump phone in his interviews. It is disgraceful and pandering to a demagogue. Nobody else gets to do this.

Maybe George Bush and the Queen didn't help, due to them promoting and profiteering from selling depleted uranium weapons, which gave off radiation and crippled and killed the servicemen and women in contact with the dust? This legacy of death lingers on in the soil and air and causes horrific deformation of newborn children.
