Thoughts on everything from Politics to Video Games

Vicki Kennedy

I don’t know a lot about Vicki Kennedy – Ted’s widow. I know she has two children. I know that she’s a lawyer or was a lawyer before they married. I have heard she has expressed no desire to take over her husband’s Senate seat. I saw her wipe away tears when I watched the funeral on TV and I had heard that she had met and greeted mourners outside the Kennedy library when they entered to view her husband’s casket.

I can’t imagine being this woman. She has been placed in an unimaginable situation – one that for many women is becoming the norm considering we are fighting two wars. I can’t imagine losing the love of my life and I certainly can’t imagine having to do so on such a public stage. The heartbreak must be enormous.

Then, I went to Time.com and viewed the below video of Mrs. Kennedy greeting the mourners outside the Kennedy library. I found it at once heartwrenching and admirable. You can’t hear much, a few sorry for your loss and you can hear Mrs. Kennedy – the last of the Kennedy women to bury a husband quite so publicly – saying thank you. She shakes many hands and my heart just aches for her.

I didn’t want you, my gentle readers, to miss any of it, so I’m posting both the embedded version of the video and the link to it.

God Bless

Top of My Head: Wisconsin Attorney General J. B. Van Hollen doesn’t stand up for Wisconsin Laws…

Wisconsin Attorney General J. B. Van Hollen doesn’t stand up for Wisconsin Laws…

We need an Attorney General who will stand up for Wisconsin Laws. Van Hollen isn’t the guy we should have. He needs to resign, be recalled or defeated in the next election.

Tea Time for the Traditionally Built

Tea Time for the Traditionally Built: The New No. 1 Ladies’ Detective Agency is the latest book in the No 1 Ladies’ Detective Agency. I love this series and have ever since I read the first book when it came out years ago. This new book is no exception. The conversations between characters, the descriptions of Botswana bring you into the lives of Precious Ramotswe, her husband – Mr. J.L.B. Matekoni – and her assistant, Mma Makutsi. The book is a quick read and will draw you in until you feel like sitting down and having a cup of Red Bush Tea.
God Bless


Wisconsin Attorney General

I said every day I would address the issue of Van Hollen and today is no exception. He should resign. He apparently doesn’t want to defend our state’s laws from an attack and he shouldn’t be our Attorney General.

Wisconsin Attorney General J. B. Van Hollen doesn’t stand up for Wisconsin Laws.

God Bless
