    Hope Is a Choice

    Posted on by Lauren Bloom

    Tomorrow marks the beginning of a new era in America, as we say goodbye to one President and hello to another. It’s been a tough transition, with lots of anger and accusations from both sides. Sadly, I don’t think that … Continue reading

    What Do Looks Have to Do with It?

    Posted on by Lauren Bloom

    Donald Trump has taken (in my opinion) some well-deserved heat for saying that his opponent, Hillary Clinton, doesn’t have the “look” to be President. No surprise, I suppose. The Donald is legendary for his observations about women’s appearance. The Clinton … Continue reading

    Why’ve we got to be so crude?

    Posted on by Lauren Bloom

    When I blog, whether about ethics or angels, I usually try to keep it non-political. Yes, I live near Washington, D.C.,  where politics are as essential to the atmosphere as oxygen. And yes, I’m an attorney, which means that I … Continue reading

    What would President Kennedy think of 21st Century America?

    Posted on by smartauthorsites

    Today is, of course, the 50th anniversary of President Kennedy’s assassination.  I’ve lived my entire life surrounded by images of the shooting, the funeral and the mourning of the American people. As we commemorate his passing, I can’t help but … Continue reading

    President Obama’s apology to the formerly insured was a little off-key

    Posted on by smartauthorsites

    President Obama certainly draws his share of criticism in Washington and, while I’m mostly a fan, I’ve been known to chime in now and then.  One thing I’ve never previously criticized, however, is one of his apologies.  Ordinarily, President Obama is a … Continue reading

    Okay, everybody … forward

    Posted on by smartauthorsites

    The election’s over, the votes are in, and President Obama has been re-elected.  Governor Romney deserves kudos for a classy concession speech, and for urging his supporters to put aside partisan bickering and work across the aisle for the common … Continue reading

    Please vote.

    Posted on by smartauthorsites

    Well, it’s finally Election Day.  After 17 months of campaigning and as much as $6 billion spent, we’ve reached the decision point.  It’s time to pick the President, folks, and the stakes couldn’t be much higher.  From the economy to … Continue reading

    Are campaign ads worth $2 billion?

    Posted on by smartauthorsites

    With the election less than two weeks away and many campaigns too close to call, it’s no surprise that the candidates are spending buckets of money on last-minute campaign ads.  What is surprising, though, at least to me, is how … Continue reading

    Too important for the birds?

    Posted on by smartauthorsites

    My friend Ernest and I recently met for lunch at a nice restaurant in the D.C. suburbs.  It’s a great way to enjoy the food without paying the hefty prices such places charge for dinner.  (Despite the recession, the presence … Continue reading

    Is it really just about the economy?

    Posted on by smartauthorsites

    If you didn’t watch the Presidential debate last night, you’ll have read or heard that the pundits are  awarding President Obama a narrow victory over Republican challenger Mitt Romney.  I’m not sure how much that really matters.  Both men debate … Continue reading
