Quote the President, and Skip the Asterisks for 01/17/2018

Wed, 17 Jan 2018 00:00:00 -0800

This week marked the beginning of the spring semester at Kent State, where I teach journalism as a professional in residence. One of the rituals of the first day of class is to go over the syllabus, which, because of required language, reads like a last will and testament.

I spruce it up where I can, and I always include a few thoughts about how we will conduct ourselves for the next 15 weeks:

A Few Divorce Tips for Steve Bannon for 01/10/2018

Wed, 10 Jan 2018 00:00:00 -0800

It occurred to me this week that many of us who've gone through a divorce could be mighty helpful right now to Steve Bannon.

We know what it feels like to experience that personal earthquake that leaves you wondering, "Did I ever mean anything to this guy? Was it all a lie?"

Button, Button, Who's Got the Button? for 01/03/2018

Wed, 03 Jan 2018 00:00:00 -0800

In the early evening of Jan. 2, the president of the United States tweeted this boast:

"North Korean Leader Kim Jong Un just stated that the 'Nuclear Button is on his desk at all times.' Will someone from his depleted and food starved regime please inform him that I too have a Nuclear Button, but it is a much bigger & more powerful one than his, and my Button works!"

Treading Gently Into This New Year for 12/27/2017

Wed, 27 Dec 2017 00:00:00 -0800

In the first hour of Christmas Eve, our 9-year-old grandson and his parents arrived here in Ohio after two long flights from their home in hurricane-ravaged St. Croix.

His recent life included 10 weeks without electricity in the U.S. territory full of U.S. citizens. In advance of his visit, Clayton asked for only one thing for Christmas: "Please have snow in Cleveland."

A Timely Rescue for 12/20/2017

Wed, 20 Dec 2017 00:00:00 -0800

Two days after Thanksgiving, our son-in-law left our home to go out for a run and, upon his return, rang our doorbell.

This is not his habit when he stays with us.

"Why is Matt ringing the doorbell?" my husband said as we all made our way to the front of the house. You would think no one ever visits us the way we all rush for the door whenever someone does, which is often.

Hope Bloomed in Alabama for 12/13/2017

Wed, 13 Dec 2017 00:00:00 -0800

Just two years ago, 65-year-old Peggy Wallace Kennedy stood on the steps of the Alabama Capitol and renounced the acts of hate her father had committed there.

This was no small moment. Kennedy's father was the late Gov. George Wallace, who was an over-my-dead-body champion of segregation in the South.

Time Magazine Gets It Right: We've Changed for 12/06/2017

Wed, 06 Dec 2017 00:00:00 -0800

It's that sleeved elbow in the Time cover photo — the one attached to an unidentified woman sitting to the right — that magnifies the message.

Five elegant women — actress Ashley Judd, singer Taylor Swift, former Uber engineer Susan Fowler, Visa lobbyist Adama Iwu and Mexican agricultural worker Isabel Pascual — are pictured on the cover in all of their fierce glory.

Our Caribbean Families Are Your Fellow Americans for 11/30/2017

Thu, 30 Nov 2017 00:00:00 -0800

About a month after Hurricane Maria, I stopped at a UPS store to ask if it was still offering a discounted rate to ship supplies to St. Croix.

The young manager shook her head even as she answered yes.

'Tis Never the Season for Revenge Parenting for 11/22/2017

Wed, 22 Nov 2017 00:00:00 -0800

Ever have one of those moments when you hear a song and it sums up exactly how you're feeling?

It's as if someone, somewhere out there, heard the call of your heart and set it to music. Maybe for just a second or two, you think, "Yes, that, exactly that." And then you remind yourself to breathe.

Our Country Turns to You, Alabama for 11/15/2017

Wed, 15 Nov 2017 00:00:00 -0800

Like so many women in recent days, I've discovered a renewed interest in who and what I was at age 14.

My freshman portrait in my high school yearbook is smaller than most "forever" postage stamps. What a skinny, wide-eyed scaredy-cat I was back then. You could fit everything I knew about the world in one of the cups of my starter bra.

She Took On the Bully, and She Won for 11/08/2017

Wed, 08 Nov 2017 00:00:00 -0800

Last January, John Carman returned from Donald Trump's inauguration apparently so puffed up that he decided to make fun of the much larger crowd at the Women's March the next day.

This, in itself, is not news. There are plenty of men in America who would rather mock women than try to understand them. Carman, however, is one of nine elected members of Atlantic County's freeholder board in New Jersey.

Once Falsely Incarcerated, Now a Police Academy Graduate for 11/01/2017

Wed, 01 Nov 2017 00:00:00 -0700

In the fall of 2001, Michael Green walked out of prison after serving 13 years for a crime he did not commit.

The story of his wrongful conviction is, in its particulars, an all-too-familiar one in America. He was accused by a white woman who had never seen a black man until she came to the Cleveland Clinic for cancer treatment. Michael had worked at the clinic for a short time, so police used his ID photo in lineups. Eventually, the woman, who had never before seen Michael Green, identified him as her rapist.

Yes, It's Bad Out There, but You're Not Alone for 10/25/2017

Wed, 25 Oct 2017 00:00:00 -0700

The young cashier smiled as she requested my driver's license to prove I was old enough to buy cabernet in Columbus, Ohio. I complied and thanked her for making my day.

Something shoved against me, hard, and I teetered. I looked down at the grocery cart pressed against my hip and then at the man who had just pushed it there.

His wife's name is Myeshia Johnson.

The congresswoman from Florida is Frederica Wilson.

This Dark Legacy of Harvey Weinstein Is Far From Over for 10/11/2017

Wed, 11 Oct 2017 00:00:00 -0700

Here we are again, America, forced to face ourselves and wincing at our reflection.

We now know, through reporting by The New York Times and The New Yorker, that Harvey Weinstein — one of the most powerful men in Hollywood and a big-time Democratic donor — bullied, demeaned and sexually assaulted women for decades. He also reportedly threatened to destroy their lives if they told anyone.

Let's not play fast and loose with the "we" here. Most of us didn't know, but many — lots of those who worked with Weinstein, as well as others — surely did. For years and years, they knew. This is the classic, dangerous narrative of a powerful man licensed to be as free with his assaults as with his threats. Virtually nobody who could have stopped him did.

Such Empty Thoughts and Prayers for 10/04/2017

Wed, 04 Oct 2017 00:00:00 -0700

No matter how great one's faith in God, after yet another massacre of innocent people, it's impossible to believe that prayer alone is going to save us from ourselves.

We're living and grieving this essential truth, no matter how many times we try to tell ourselves and anyone who will listen that with God, all things are possible. The older I get the more that sounds like blame, not credit. I've always thought of God as a partner who expects us to do our part, which involves a whole lot more than singing, chanting or fingering the rosary and then thanking him for listening.

'It Never Ends' for 09/27/2017

Wed, 27 Sep 2017 00:00:00 -0700

Before I started attending Kent State in the fall of 1975, I was a kid living in small-town Ashtabula, Ohio, on the northern edge of a county by the same name, which had lost 26 servicemen in the Vietnam War. Our state total was 3,094, ranking us fifth in casualties.

I don't remember seeing a single anti-war protest growing up that wasn't framed by the console of our TV. We were a working-class town full of boys with no college deferments whose first flights would be to Vietnam. By the late 1960s, it seemed you couldn't drive in any direction from our house without passing the home of a boy who had gone to Vietnam. My mother was on perennial casserole duty in those years, delivering a warm dish to one of three types of gatherings: a send-off, a homecoming or a wake.

Nobody in our house was going to protest the war. Like most of the adults in our town, my parents would have seen that as an unforgivable act of betrayal.

All Is Not Forgiven, Sean Spicer for 09/20/2017

Wed, 20 Sep 2017 00:00:00 -0700

On his first full day as president, Donald Trump showed up at the CIA, described journalists as "among the most dishonest human beings on earth" and accused them of making up stuff about him.

He blamed journalists for a perceived rift between him and the intelligence agencies — failing to mention that earlier that same month, he had compared the intelligence community to Nazis.

All Rise, or Not, for the United States of Football for 09/13/2017

Wed, 13 Sep 2017 00:00:00 -0700

Once again, we've got a lot going on in my hometown of Cleveland that's attracting national attention.

Even as I write on this Wednesday afternoon, the background noise of my television is making me dare to believe that our baseball team is about to make American League history by winning its 21st consecutive victory.
