Quote of the Day

I cannot always write at the same time, in the same place. I work, travel and have a vigorous family life. If I'm stranded in an airport lobby - I write. If I have to wait in a doctor's office - I write. If I have a morning or evening to myself - I write.

Starting in my teens, I was always standing on the corner near our apartment singing harmony with friends. We'd also go to the park and sing under the bridge near the lake for the echo.

Now, a thousand bloggers decide for themselves what is interesting. If enough of them are tickled then, bingo, you're news.
The number one lobby that opposes campaign finance reform in the United States is the National Association of Broadcasters.
