Sometimes a hard and ugly truth gives more comfort than the prettiest of lies.  Sometimes the time worn euphemism rings painfully hollow when the proof of the venal reality it represents is astonishingly obvious.  Sometimes you just want to hear the real deal, the core...

As some of you know from reading my bio, I try to spend some time every year in Brazil.  I’m currently in my adopted country enjoying the people, the culture, food and music – and caught up in the collective angst of many Brasileiros about what’n the hell their new Pre...

Wait … what?  Sometimes you’ve just got to wonder if the news is one perpetual April Fool’s joke.  Apparently, our hard(ly) working Congress has finally engaged in some bipartisanship and passed a bill.
