Designated Survivor Skeptics

231651_1316954

To all my skeptics concerning my last post, Designated Survivor, I’d like to offer this.

But before I do, let me say this about writing.  As I started to learn my craft, one of the mantras that I always heard was, “Play to your audience.”  Or “Write for your particular audience.”   And knowing that, I know exactly why what I wrote was ‘damped down’.  Continue reading

My Fellow Alabamians

629x629xcft-cft-roy-moore-pagespeed-ic-fcnxbfnris

I and the people stalking me are from Alabama.  I was born in Bay Minette, Alabama.  And I grew up in Latham, Alabama which is not far from Tensaw, Alabama.  My grandparents, on my father’s side, lived in Prichard, Alabama, a suburb of Mobile, Alabama which is close to Pensacola, Florida.  Continue reading

Another One Bites The Dust

Mario Batali!  Who knew.

I confess that I watch The Chew – at least some of it.  And I have always admired, i.e., was jealous of the way Mario Batali talked about his wife, Susi, and how much he loves her.  So, it came as quite a shock that he is being accused of sexually harassing other women.  

But, it seems that some men, once they achieve a certain amount of fame and money, let that go to their heads – and that can be either head you want.

I’d like to caution men that while your money and fame are attractive they are not necessarily turn-ons for every woman.  Be careful.

Al Franken’s Resignation

220px-al_franken_official_senate_portrait

Al Franken made a very public resignation just minutes ago.  And believe it or not, I was crying.  His speech brought me to tears, until.

As I was sitting on the side of my bed watching Franken’s resignation and crying this picture of myself leaving Exxon Company USA, 1555 Poydras Street, New Orleans, La.) flashed in my mind.   And then a question.  “Do you remember how much that hurt?”   Yes.

It hurt hearing the stalkers screaming obscenities at me while I tried to carry on with my work.  It hurt the way my co-workers looked at and regarded me after that.  It hurt when the managers realized they’d made a mistake allowing the stalkers in their business and my place of work.   It hurt that their way of resolving the problem was to fire me.  It hurt.  It hurt driving home after being fired.  It hurt going to the unemployment office.  It hurt being unemployed.  It hurt having to move out of my apartment.  It hurt having to call home and beg to come back.  IT HURT!

It hurt being fired from Apex Automotive Warehouse after suffering 8 years more of harassment.

It hurt being fired from Jewel/Osco (Albertson Store Debt Recovery)

It hurt leaving Rush University Medical Center because I’d had enough of the harassment.

It hurt, it hurt it hurt.  And it hurt even more when people told me it was ALL MY FAULT.

So, Al Franken, I feel you.  I know exactly how much it hurts.  But at least you get a golden Senate parachute to fall back on and you won’t be standing in the unemployment line anytime soon or making adjustment to your life in order to live on $1200.00 a month in Social Security.

Yes, it hurts.

I only hope that Dick Durbin, Danny K. Davis, Emanuel Chris Welch, Kimberly Lightford, Mayor Edwenna Perkins, and Police Chief Vladamir Talley were watching so that they’ll understand just how much having to give up your career can hurt.
