Saying goodbye to a member of the family. Sort of.

A couple months ago I said goodbye to an old friend. She was a reliable, dependable member of the family for eight years - our 2004 blue sedan Saab, model 9-5. She was a Swede; a country that gave also gave us Pippi Longstocking, Ikea and ABBA. Over the years we owned three Saabs.

A Leftist and Her Money Are Soon Parted

Ever since George W. Bush went home to paint puppies, Republicans have generally lauded him as a tough commander-in-chief who "kept us safe." But Donald Trump is torching that party mantra.

Turns Out New Hampshire is for Losers

Once again, New Hampshire has demonstrated it is as different from the rest of the country as the Himalayan Mountains are from Jack in the Box's seasoned curly fries. Like green sand and aluminum crockpots. As Dorothy almost said after being whisked away by a tornado, "We're not in Iowa anymore, Toto."

New Hampshire's Populist Primal Scream

What a wild night in New Hampshire! In the words of one political reporter, "The voters sent a powerful anti-Washington message." A xenophobic Republican demagogue "stoked citizen anger against the inside-the-Beltway establishment, loudly invoking the '30s populism of Huey Long." The triumphant candidate fed off the "anxieties" of his fans. He "speaks his mind and damns the consequences."

He texts me with a snicker during all of the Democratic debates. The night of the Iowa Caucus I retaliated, texting, "Cruz! I'm so happy!!" I knew that'd make him cringe.
