In Search of 21 Influential Thinkers

December 10th, 2018

By Bob Gaydos
I’m looking for a list of thinkers for the 21st century. The question: Who are the Teslas and Edisons and Jungs who will shape the way we live in the rest of this still young century? As with my 20th Century list, I need your help. This is a cooperative venture.

It’s Time to Un-dumb America

The Fox News Generation, fed a daily diet of fear and fiction, may be beyond saving, but there’s still time and hope for the youngsters. Knowledge is power. Our schools need to step up their game.

America’s in Need of an Intervention

Trump, who doesn’t drink, is a sucker for applause, adulation. It’s his alcohol. He sank into a deep withdrawal when the pre-vote campaign rallies ended.

The Buck Never Stops With Trump

A lousy appointment for attorney general? Republicans losing congressional races? “Hey, never met the guy. And they never asked for my help.” Not his fault. Never is.

Why Would They Throw Rocks?

November 2nd, 2018

By Bob Gaydos
If you’re fleeing violence, looking for a safe haven, why would you throw rocks at armed troops at your chosen destination? You wouldn’t. It’s a ruse to rile the bigoted base. Also, Khashoggi and mail bombs. Maybe it’s just me, but none of this is normal.

Trump/Bakker: Marriage of Convenience

September 18th, 2018

By Bob Gaydos
The key to my finally understanding the evangelical embrace of Trump, the most amoral, immoral, irreligious occupant of the White House perhaps ever, is realizing I had it backwards.

So, the prince of darkness, the Sultan of swat and the king and queen of music all died on the same date. Coincidence? Maybe so, but I’m thinking it’s more likely there’s a message we humans haven’t figured out yet.

Bobby B, Lebron, Elon and Tom Wolfe

August 10th, 2018

By Bob Gaydos
What do Bobby Bonilla, Lebron James, Elon Musk and Tom Wolfe have in common? … . I figured, if these names were on a list of newsmakers, I should at least tell people why.

TAD? TFS? Whatever … I’ve Got It

August 3rd, 2018

By Bob Gaydos
It’s downright tiring writing the same thing over and over again: Dotard did/said something dumb or cruel, or both. Then he lied about it. Republicans didn’t care (they’ve committed suicide) and his loyalists cheered. End of story.
