David (Secor) and Goliath (Hunter)….

Posted by on Oct 14, 2012 in my day, political | 0 comments

New article (well, kinda, it was published this week…. I’m a bit slow..) re: the congressional race in the district we live in.  The article was picked up by a local online magazine and with the permission of allvoices.com, republished. YEA!

The candidates could not be more different in their political views and agenda.  I used to know Duncan’s Dad who was a congressman before him.  I do not remember Duncan Sr. being as radical in his convictions nor as conservative.  Well, that  whole Republican party has taken a nose dive to the right.

David is a nice guy who is running because he feels compelled because Duncan is so radical.  Duncan’s views on women’s rights are about as far to the right….or back into the past… as possible.

Film about undocumented workers on allvoices.co,

Posted by on Sep 16, 2012 in my day, political | 0 comments

I saw the most compelling documentary about undocumented workers in the U.S. about a month ago.  It is a short documentary all should see.  I was so impressed with the young men’s work that I set out to track them down.  I finally was able to meet Max and learn more about him and the film.  I wrote a story and posted the video at the following site:

Please feel free to comment on the allvoices.com site if you wish.  The film has now been seen by people in several countries.

I posted this last night on allvoices.com.  I researched and wrote on this for a couple days.  I kept looking for a “gottcha” I knew was there.  I found it!   I’m pleased, the first comment I got was a quote from a source that I had referenced in my Sources and Resources section.  The man writing was accusing me (I think) of being inaccurate in my reporting.  I was not.  I was able to tell him to look at para 4 to see I had not done as he was apparently suggesting.  Yea!  I think I got it right!

This is stressful!
