The 2020 campaign has been the most expensive in U.S. history! Both political parties have collectively spent just under $17 billion dollars to promote their candidates, to BUY seats. $17 Billion! And that’s not counting what will be spent for the run off Senate race in Georgia.

It used to be that broadcast outlets had to serve the public interest. One of the ways in which they were required to do so, was by making time for opposing views.

Born in Coronado on August 15, 1921, Tom Rice’s life was fairly typical for a small, sunny, quaint community. He went to public school and was one of the first lifeguards at our local beach. But historic events were calling young Tom’s generation into action and, after graduating high school…

For an entire week following mid-term election day, control of the House of Representatives had not been officially determined. Votes were still being counted in several states. Patience was being asked of the public. These things take time, they said, and every vote deserves to be counted. …

Many veterans who return home from the horrors of war do not experience honor, gratitude, nor community support. The country they served does not always reciprocate and this can leave many veterans with deep bitterness and a frustrating lack of closure.

When I was a kid my grandfather gifted me with a couple of coin-collecting albums, one well-stocked with pre-1959 “wheat” Lincoln pennies, the other brimming with pre-1964 Washington quarters, the 90% silver variety. Yours truly truly treasured the albums of old coins. As an aside, I loved t…

Many pre-election polls predicted a red wave of GOP victories in the mid-term elections. They were wrong again. The red ripple was barely enough to rock a canoe. I had referred to the elections as “pivotal.” I was also wrong. Americans may feel like the country is headed in the wrong directi…

Thirty years ago when yours truly was thirty-five-years-young [sigh], I’d occasionally kill time down at the batting cages next to the long-gone goofy-golf course which once upon a time stood astride the ‘L’ Street exit off the I-5 freeway in Chula Vista, a stone’s throw from Toys-R-Us [doub…

It’s a peculiar week to write one of these columns. The election is being held after my deadline, and results may or may not be known by the time anyone reads this. Therefore, it’s impossible to discuss results, and anyway, I’m just completely sick of the whole thing, as I’m guessing you are…

When is “it” not partisanship ... When we’re the ones doing it!

In July I wrote an opinion piece wherein I reflected upon the upcoming election and exhorted the public to eschew the partisanship of the modern election process, and remember the responsibilities that each of us face as we choose our elected officials.

I must admit to a small amount of encouragement at the volume of positive response that this piece received in the community.
