Transgender Flag 1

Last September, I moved into a house with a small yard. With a yard, I began work on what I’m calling our Victory Garden (“Victory Garden” being the old WWII term for home vegetable gardens). As I’ve said before, I don’t want to get lost in the day-to-day goings on of the news cycles, and […]

Bring on the ‘Gang of 19’

219_5951_9175.jpg

The Senate is continuing its downhill spiral. President Trump’s cabinet nominees are facing unprecedented opposition, with Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos needing a vice presidential tie-breaker for confirmation. Democrats may filibuster Judge Neil Gorsuch’s nomination, possibly leading Republicans to end the filibuster for Supreme Court nominees and possibly legislation. How did things get so bad? […]

People, politics and opinions

219_5952_9176.jpg

Recent polls show Mayor Kevin Faulconer behind Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsome in next year’s California governor’s race. That Faulconer, a Republican, is polling a strong second while expressing no interest in the race continues to have people urge him to run. While I believe our mayor would make an outstanding governor, I do believe it […]

Experience the art and irony of Asghar Farhadi’s ‘The Salesman’

219_5955_9188.jpg

Outside of cinephiles who have seen his Oscar-winning A Separation, Asghar Farhadi is not well known among Americans. But his name was thrust into the news over the last few weeks because of President Trump’s executive order banning travel of most anyone, but particularly Muslims, from seven majority Muslim countries. (The list does not include […]

Dystopia, here I come

Storms and Lightning in a Post Apocalyptic World Scene

I lost track of time this week. I didn’t know when it was Monday or Wednesday, Jan. 30 or Feb. 1. I’ve lost my cues this week that tell me. Being medically retired and not having a Monday through Friday life, it can happen. I usually have appointments scheduled for Wednesdays and get reminders from […]

100 years: A peek back

218_5944_9152.jpg

This is my 100th article in this column. To celebrate this milestone, I am going 100 years back to 1917 to have a look at the San Diego of yesteryear. The city was in its childhood then. The indigenous people of the San Diego area were the Kumeyaay Native American tribe. Juan Rodriquez Cabrillo was […]

How to address Trump

218_5935_9134.jpg

What Donald Trump has done in the days since his inauguration disgusts me. In that time, I have joined marches, breakfasts and rallies to oppose his actions. I have seen signs that inspire hope, invite discussion and incite anger. I can empathize or sympathize with them all, including those that say “Not my President.” Yet […]

Imperial Court 45, a matter of respect

Imperial Court

This coming Saturday Feb. 4, San Diego’s oldest LGBT organization will be celebrating its 45th anniversary of community service: The Imperial Court de San Diego. In 1972, LGBT San Diegans started to meet and discuss the starting of a local chapter of the International Imperial Court System, which was founded in 1965 in San Francisco […]
