It’s not much fun being Blue in a Red State. But that pales against the nightmare that is being a progressive in a United States determined to act like World War II is back, one seemingly willing to forget horrific sins of the past. Some evangelical (and otherwise) Christians, usually so quick to scold the […]

You’re going to watch the Democratic presidential campaign tonight, right? It starts in about 90 minutes! Pacifist activism group Code Pink for Peace has some information it would like you to have in mind as you see the five-way semantic battle between Chaffee, Clinton, O’Malley Sanders, and Webb.  Call this activism via social media: What […]

Mercury is in retrograde, which may explain why everything is scattered and black right now.  (A painful back injury has left me prone and miserable of late.) Happily, that depressing period should be coming to an end Oct. 9. That means perhaps there will be an upswing in all things personal and professional. Let’s hope. […]

Sitting and working in a Nashville Starbucks, I am completely distraught. Yesterday, despite pleas from pacifists, justice seekers, Susan Sarandon, Sr. Helen Prejean, and even the freaking Pope, Georgia murdered Kelly Gissendaner, the first woman to experience state-sanctioned killing in the state in 70 years. Gissendaner was sentenced to die after her conviction for masterminding the […]

If you are going to study a candidate to decide whether she or he deserves your vote, you must study the good and bad sides and decide what you can tolerate. Here is the sad truth: There is no perfect candidate, not even Bernie Sanders. Most of the presidential candidate’s supporters tout Sanders’ commitment to serving […]

Gosh, the end of summer weather has been glorious in Nashville so far. Has anyone heard of spring fever coming in Autumn? How do we muster the seriousness to atone adequately and appropriately? (Yom Kippur starts tonight, y’all.) I am not really sure, but suggest taking a deep breath and venturing forth into the events […]

Two weeks is better than nothing. Oklahoma’s planned state-sanctioned killing of Richard Glossip will not happen today. A state appellate court announced a two-week delay to allow a review of new evidence that could prove the death row inmate’s innocence. Democracy Now reports Glossip’s lawyers filed an emergency request yesterday afternoon, and a stay was […]

Despite questions surrounding new evidence that could exonerate death-row inmate Richard Glossip, Oklahoma plans to murder him this afternoon. Glossip, convicted of hiring a contract killer in 1997, is scheduled to die at 3 pm. Anti-capital punishment crusaders say new evidence shows that the man who committed the 18-year-old murder (and is serving a life sentence […]

Another long but non-lucrative week behind the Uber wheel. Thank goodness I can find comfort in the knowledge that Music City has its first woman mayor: In case you missed it, despite polls saying the contest was neck and neck, last Thursday’s runoff election gave progressive Megan Barry a decisive 10 percentage point victory over […]

  On Saturday, Sept. 5, the Central Labor Council of Nashville and Middle Tennessee, Workers’ Dignity, and Middle Tennessee Jobs With Justice staged the Nashville Labor Day Parade, followed by the annual Workers’ Dignity fundraising festival at St. Edward Church on Thompson Lane. The third annual event featured a march that allowed local progressive organizations and labor unions […]
