HBO Real Time host Bill Maher brilliantly examines the conundrum of diversity fighters who don’t allow diversity among their own ranks.
A little over two years after my mother Norma passed away, my father went to Heaven to be with the woman he cherished. He was never the same once mom was gone.
For Throwback Thursday, I thought I would share this incredible note sent to me shortly after dad’s death.
Thank you, Mr. & Mrs. Pollard. Your words gave all fourteen Meiners kids some comfort as we struggled with the loss of our guiding lights.
(transcript of note)
Your dad was our milkman, our paper man, a wrestler (we all knew), and a devout person we all admired.
He paid unpaid milk bills for Germantown residents rather than stop their orders. Your mom baked them cakes.
How do you follow parents like these? I don’t know, but try.
The world is better for them, and Heaven is better with them.
God bless you & your family.
Margie & Don Pollard

HBO’s “Last Week Tonight” zinged me for my bad Irish accent. Dude, I am only 1% Irish. How about an A for effort, laddie?
Ironically enough, this public service announcement was created in ’69.

Hillary’s email snafu is no big deal to her most ardent fans. They’re seasoned women and they are ready to see a president who looks like them.
