that they have some part in making this a de...

Donald Trump and Racism
One of the most
awful things one can do is to call a person – or label a person – a racist
without carefully explaining one’s self. I think Nick Kristof shows such caution
in his NY Times column about the possibility that Donald Trump is a racist. by Charli...

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").
