For years I’ve been irritated over the right wing’s hijacking of the American flag. I do understand that for many, particularly veterans, the flag is sacred, but for far too many I’ve felt that flag worshiping has been more of a case of “methinks thou doth protest too much.” Flags waving from car antennas, flags on clothes and ball caps, flags on golf bags, etc. The ultimate, of course, was Trump theatrically hugging the flag at his rallies. It seemed as if these people were proclaiming that they were more patriotic than the rest of us.

As will become readily apparent, my blogs will not just be about my books or even writing in general. They will be about whatever suits my fancy--and yes, I'm sorry, but that may include politics from time to time. We live in an interestingly tempestuous time and as a writer I find it impossible to ignore the worldwide psycho-drama (and, at times, psycho-comedy) being played out before us on a virtual daily basis.
