Talking About Jim Crow: The conversation that America has never had
Slavery is certainly at the core of racism in the U.S. but I think that the overt manifestation of racism became firmly entrenched as a part of American culture in the post-civil war era with the implementation of Jim Crow laws (racial segregation laws enac...

The New Racism: Denial
I come from a very large family on my mother's side and many of my Facebook friends are family members. My second cousin, LaNi is a lovely, intelligent young woman whose posts are always interesting. She led me to a piece on ebony.com titled "I Hope My Son ...

Spare the Rod and Raise a Happy, Well-Balanced Child
There was a time when electro-shock therapy was used to treat mental illness. We figured out eventually that it really wasn't effective therapy and did more harm than good, so we stopped using it. We judge all the time. If you have any ethical or moral code...

Donald Sterling and the Low-life Ignorant Racist Club
I've tried to give LA Clippers owner Donald Sterling the benefit of the doubt.  Audio recordings may be altered. His mixed race (Black and Mexican) girlfriend may have released the tape to get even because the Sterling family is suing her, alleging that she...

Story
Introduction
I've always lived in the south but I've visited other parts of the U.S. and I prefer the south to other parts of the country. I like iced tea, the usefulness of the word "y'all", and I fnd the summer heat invigorating. My favorite place to visit outside of the U.S. is Mazatlan in Mexico. I became an attorney because I believe in justice and after 15 years of practice, I still believe in justice for all. I'm single, no children, and no pets. I love other people's children and I'm an excellent babysitter.

My 2006 Pontiac G6 was part of a recall by GM for power steering problems. The work on my car was completed in a matter of hours and I really appreciate the shuttle service picking me up promptly to return to Thompson to get my car. Everyone that I encountered was helpful and friendly, but I'd like to single out two delightful young women who assisted me directly--Renee Hart and Anne Morrell. I never knew that bringing my car in for repairs could be such a pleasant experience. Both are very professional, helpful, and knowledgeable. Oh, and my car drives great!
