City looks like loser on Koons sculpture

  “A fool and his money are soon parted,” goes the old proverb. And so it will be if the Sacramento City Council this evening fails to see through the spurious arguments advanced to promote the purchase of a ridiculously priced Jeff … Continue reading

It Is Not What We Say But What We See That Heals

It Is Not What We Say But What We See That Heals

Naomi Feil begins by caressing the face of her patient as a mother would her child – wiping away a tear, letting her know she’s not alone. Then she begins to sing quietly:

 
“Jesus loves me, this I know / For the Bible tells me so.”
 
Without missing a beat, Gladys, an elderly woman diagnosed...

Breast Cancer? But Doctor....I hate pink!
RIP Lisa Bonchek Adams

I've been gone all day today, volunteering at the regional Science Olympiad, an event I've been involved in for years.  I thought about cancer a lot today, recalling when I was a bald mom on my first chemo, whose child was a participant. As I relive...

Columnist shows reckless indifference to truth in River Park swastika controversy

Mar 5, 2015

It’s astounding to see any journalist call the exercise of free speech an “abomination.” Free speech and a free press are so closely positioned in the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution as to be almost inseparable. You can’t have … Continue reading

In Love, There Are No ‘Shades of Grey’

In Love, There Are No ‘Shades of Grey’

Despite the fact that nearly every critic on the planet gave it an emphatic thumbs-down (current Rotten Tomatoes Tomatometer rating: 26%), “Fifty Shades of Grey” still managed to rake in more money over the Presidents Day weekend than any other movie in history. Go figure.

 
While analyses and commentaries abound as to what drives...

Sacramento’s needy pursuit of star artist for Kings arena

Sacramento’s needy pursuit of star artist for Kings arena

   Sacramento’s inferiority complex is showing. Surely, that explains why local art “experts” joined hands with the Sacramento Kings to commission an outrageously priced status symbol for the plaza in front of the emerging Kings arena downtown. It’s hardly surprising that … Continue reading

Physical Fitness by the Decade

In elementary school, I was the last one picked for any team sport. Rightly so, embarrassing as the memory is.  I was short, skinny, wore glasses and was terrified of flying balls.  Consigned to the outfield during baseball games, I sorted through em...

Don’t Stop Thinking About Tomorrow             Fleetwood Mac was in town a couple of weeks ago. Did you go? Because Chuck and I did. And we had a wonderful evening. I mean, who wouldn’t love getting in touch with their inner-1976ish self while watching Stevie and Mick do their thing?   And so it...

My Daughter Got ‘Manti Teo’d’

My Daughter Got  ‘Manti  Teo’d’

While watching Katie Couric’s interview of Manti Te’o last Thursday,  I got deja vu,  goosebumps, and extremely irritated.  And after it was over, I took ownership of my acute stupidity. When my daughter was a freshman in high school, she had a fun, intriguing, ‘first-love’ relationship with a guy (I think) who lived a privileged...

Jury service shakes up daily routine

Feb 26, 2015

In my imagination, I’m a go-with-the-flow kind of guy. When the unexpected happens, I quickly adapt. I admire adventurers and undercover operatives who throw themselves into dangerous, uncharted situations and find a way to improvise new game plans. One of … Continue reading
