    Getting Out and Coming Out

    Last week, President Obama had unprecedented opportunities on consecutive days to demonstrate his promised “change we can believe in.” On both occasions, he came up short.  On Wednesday night, the President addressed the nation about his plans for withdrawal of forces from Afghanistan, outlining a drawdown of 10,000... more...

Not surprising given the political debates taking place in United States and the approaching show-down in Washington over raising the US debt ceiling.

Dad was brought up in the Deep South and my husband looked like the people who had practiced the nauseating hatred of Jim Crow in my father's hometown.
