Memorial Day 2013

IMHO, the best way to remember and honor our fallen men & women in uniform is to practice democracy. The concepts of "liberty and justice for all" means for ALL.

Johnny Got His Gun, Dalton Trumbo

This is our book group reading for our meeting this Thursday (May 3) at 7. We picked this book as one which had been influential when we were young--it was one of the first anti-war books I read during the Viet Nam Conflict. It was originally published in 1939. This book is extrememly relevant now as our solidiers return home from Iraq, Afghanistan or one of the 30+ other countries we have forces in. Our war on terror sent troops off with out proper equipment including armor. Many of these men and women are returning home with wounds--physical and mental. We need to pay adequate attention to these veterans--providing adequate medical care, rehabilitation and re-entry into civilian life. We need to hold the government responsible for their care.

Women's History Month starts tomorrow

While only having onemonth to celebrateblack history or women's history is very problematic...

To help kick-off this year's Women's History Month, my book, American
Catfight: Political Wisdom for Women, has been priced for free for
ebook download from today through March 3rd.

The book explores the issue of money in feminism and the resulting
battles (such as the one we all recently witnessed between Planned
Parenthood and Susan G. Komen!) If you haven't had a chance to pick
it up previously, you can't beat free for a price!

Have a great Women's History Month!

Women's Health care services after merger

Many of you are aware that after the hospital mergers here in Kingston, the Foxhall Ambulatory building housed women's reproductive health services,including abortion. But for the past few months there has been no doctor on staff to provide such services.
Today's NYT has an editorial calling on states to ensure all essential services are maintained post-mergers. The editorial makes it seem that this is promlematic only in rural areas...but it is happening here!
(The editorial mentions Merger Watch...)
