What About This? By Wayne William Cipriano

What a fabulous opportunity we had. We were attacked by a virus that struck and injured and killed indiscriminately. No gender, no age, no religion, no political persuasion, no geographic location, no social nor economic class or condition, no level of education, no possession of talent of any sort provided immunity. Any of us might…

The latest reports we have been getting from the most carefully protected area in the United States of America, the White House, and the many Covid-19 infections attacking the President and the many high-level personnel in the Administration and their families remind us that testing for Covid-19 means nothing. Even receiving test results from Covid-19…

The idea that one of our United States of America Senators from Missouri is going to object to the Electoral College report as to the President and Vice President votes seems strange to me.

I can’t believe that some parents in American school districts are tacitly accepting the idea of retroactive birth control by embracing the idea of sending students to school in the face of this raging Covid-19 curse, just to avail themselves of FREE DAY CARE. Not all kids are catching it. Of those who do, not…

Around here, for a week or so, before stiff waves of wind blow them all away, New England boys like me look out over the backyard and get a little homesick. They float slowly down, they sway in the sunlight reflecting the reds, tans, oranges, yellows, browns and greens of Autumn, presenting the bright calling…

Just because a person has a vowel at the end of his last name doesn’t necessarily mean he is of Italian descent. And just because a person is of Italian descent doesn’t necessarily mean he is an expert on pizza. But it certainly helps. It may be a genetic thing. Who knows? All the cooks…
