Beware the Proud Boys, Aryan Nation, Alt-Right, Holocaust Questioners and all the White Guys who feel disenfranchised For the first […]

Two weeks before our current so called president was inaugurated, I began a sequence of chemotherapy treatments, my second in two years, for a new, transformed bout of aggressive non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. I couldn’t even think about going to the Women’s March in DC or the spin off version here in the Twin Cities. During the […]
