After 35 years as a journalist I have broken a long silence to comment again on critical moral and political issues that impact the U.S. body politic. Reflections on, an independent, non-profit blog, are posted frequently, not daily. I hope global readers, accepting Aristotle's definition of a political animal, will find this quick scan both provocative and mindful.
