#YesAllWomen I don’t think about misogyny affecting me until I leave the house and feel vulnerable without my wedding ring. Sometimes I still wear the band at night, and probably will continue to. I’m also very nervous about not being able to say, “Sorry, I’m married” when the need arises. It’s scary out there.
"Come, clad in peace and I will sing the songs
The Creator gave to me when I
And the tree and stone were one.”
Rest in Peace, Maya Angelou

3. Trying to figure out which direction to take to get away from a Twister on a South Dakota reservation.
4. Flying in a no-name intra-Taiwan puddle jumper that didn’t appear to be regulated or maintained in any way.
5. Driving a van in a white-out Blizzard at 4am in Ohio 2008 with no GPS.
So Hillary set up a call for all the mothers of her entire staff on Mother’s Day. When I heard about the call, I laughed out loud, but once I was assured that Mama would not be able to talk BACK to then-Senator Clinton, I made arrangements for her to dial in.
I listened in on the call too, and it was really beautiful. What’s more, I think it made Mama understand how hard we work on a campaign as well as how warm Hillary is one on one. What’s more, she understood that my work was appreciated.
And, she became Hillary Clinton’s biggest fan and cheerleader. Her politics didn’t change, and I’m pretty sure she would still have voted for McCain, but her attitude certainly changed. So to me, the lesson, as always, is that people are more important than politics.
(She still doesn’t think too much of Bill, though )
Imagine if Rainer had Twitter? Sometimes I like to think about that.
Happy Mothers Day, Mama! You missed your calling as a social commentator.
I started Let’s Roll, T-Town! to connect with other Tuscaloosa expats to commiserate and share information during the storm. But right away an elderly lady needed a wheelchair in the Downs. Someone had one and headed over. The group morphed into a real-time rapid response operation matching first responders with victims in immediate distress. We helped a lot of people that night.
Over the next few weeks we documented the recovery process and coordinated donation efforts. Soon Elizabeth Stanard and Marjorie Davis Trimm took over the heavy lifting on the donations - thanks Ladies! And special shoutouts to Jamie Dykes and Appie Millsaps for regularly keeping us up to date with their efforts and challenges. Also Casey C Sears, Joe Duckworth, Stuart McNair and many many more deserve recognition for their heroic efforts for our city. Not to mention, A Star was Born! Mayor4Life Walt Maddox has a bright future!
And we got our second visit from a modern day sitting president - also Reagan 1983, Foster Auditorium (and McDonalds lol) I know some of you didn’t like that, but I thought it was pretty cool.
