If I Had Said It….
     I am with my dear wife, Anne, and Janice Laskie      and her husband, the good Reverend Larry Laskie      at yesterday's celebration of his 50 years of ministry. As I listen to folks speak yesterday at a celebration of a

Facebook is so Frustrating!
I go to Facebook because it keeps me connected with a number of people I really care about and I want to know what’s going on in their lives. There are also some old acquaintances with whom I’m able to renew connections. It’s fun when I can hear about their...

Thoughts from My Snuggery!
On the coming
election – on Bernie, Hillary and Michael Bloomberg! I have this nagging
feeling that this year’s presidential election will be one of the most
important in history. I am hoping people will not gamble when they vote this
year. There is far too...

Trump is out of control!
For the last couple of days, the presumptive Republican presidential candidate has been out of control. To define that, I mean a candidate who
cannot be controlled by the party he represents nor can he be controlled by the
politically trained and savvy staf...

Donald, the Bully!
  There is
something about Donald Trump that deeply frightens me! Of course! That is how
bullies manage to thrive. They use fear tactics – much in the manner of
terrorists! My even greater fear, however, is that Donald Trump is insane in
addition to being a...

What Trump Really Offers
I am taken by
remarks made by Robert Kagan in his May 18 column in the Washington Post; and,
frighteningly, I think Kagan is correct! I urge you to read the entire column
and not just this snippet! by Charlie Leck “We’re supposed to
believe that Trump’s sup...

The Religious Right and Donald Trump
The
headlines barked the naked, strange truth this morning. The religious right “is
warming to Donald Trump.” Oh, my God! by Charlie
Leck In the eyes of
conservative Christians, I would imagine that Donald Trump must be viewed as a
sinful man. Yet, for many...

“Who’da thunk It?”
I’ve come up with a pretty clear picture of Donald Trump. In
case you don’t know it, he will run in November as the Republican candidate for
President of the United States (POTUS). I absolutely cannot believe it! And I
just cannot imagine it! I underestimat...

Daniel J. Berrigan
When I turned to the NY Times
this morning, as I do nearly every morning, I was saddened to learn of the
death of Father Daniel J. Berrigan. He was a man – a Jesuit – a Catholic Priest
– who had an enormous impact on my life and my thinking. And, Father Ber...

Story
Tagline
I'm 72 now (1940) and blog regularly.
Introduction
I write these blogs to leave behind a full picture of me for my grandchildren. I had no such snapshot of my own grandparents and what they believed and how they thought. Ad Astra, you probably know, is Latin for To the Stars. Without being literal about it, it's my final destination (where I "shall forever sit, triumphing over death, and chance, and Thee, O Time").
