Separating your story from the stories of your kids

I'm a sucker for first-day-of-school pictures. It feels like it comes close to what we get as a new tradition in the past few years, a way for your social media community to come together and get a look at those critters you've made. A not-so-small part of me enjoys how I make others feel old when they notice what grade my kids are going into.

Reflection of My Failed Campaign

I want to thank the distributor of my articles, Creators Syndicate, for allowing me to take eight weeks off from writing my weekly column so I could campaign to recall and replace the governor of California. I also want to thank my readers for their patience and willingness to let me pursue that adventure.

When Politicians Call For 'Fairness,' They're Usually Lying

This week, President Joe Biden attempted to inject life into his ailing presidency by dragging out of the closet the hoariest of political cliches: "fairness" in taxation. Touting his new $3.5 trillion tax and spending bill, which would radically increase corporate taxes, personal income taxes and so-called sin taxes, Biden stated, "It's not enough just to build back; we have to build back better than before ... I'm not out to punish anyone. I'm a capitalist. If you can make a million or a billion dollars, that's great. God bless you. All I'm asking is you pay your fair share. Pay your fair share just like middle-class folks do."

Wine and grilled food

End-of-summer patio parties call for tossing steaks onto coals. And choosing the right wines for such fare seems simple enough — dark reds to go with grilled meats. But no one eats just steak at these parties. Patio shindigs start with chips and dips, nuts, crackers, cheese and olives, plus finger food (bruschetta, lahvosh sandwiches), dips (hummus, carrots, guacamole, cherry tomatoes, broccoli), coleslaw and maybe even caviar.

Congress Is Back to Serving Pork

Pork is being served in Washington again. Big juicy slices to the lobbyists with the deepest wallets and the campaign contributors who write the biggest campaign reelection checks. It is the way of the swamp. It is the currency of the Washington Beltway. It explains how people get so rich in politics.

COVID-19 could have been our unifying moment

We blew it. And at this point, I’m not interested in pointing fingers and declaring who’s at fault or why. WE collectively botched this. An Alabama man died after 43 hospitals turned him away. Overwhelmed by COVID-19 cases, they weren’t able to help him with his cardiac emergency, according to a Washington Post report.

Hands Off Gen. Milley

What Gen. Mark Milley has learned during his most recent years of service is what most Americans have now come to understand about former President Donald Trump. He was always a highly dysfunctional and dangerous leader, or as Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi succinctly told the general, “crazy.” Treating him as a “normal” president would involve unacceptable risk.

Once Again, Gerrymandering Threatens To Throttle Democracy

It's a redistricting year in the blue state of Illinois, which means that Republicans are getting less consideration than a missionary on the Las Vegas Strip. Democrats have been winning in the Land of Lincoln for a long while, controlling the state House for all but two of the past 38 years. But they see no harm in running up the score.

Brighter Days: 4 Top Tips for Getting Support During Pregnancy

This might be less about enlisting help than it is about accepting help. Chances are good that people want to help you right now, but it can be hard to accept help, even when it's offered. Try to let down your guard, accept help and even ask for it when you need it. Just say yes.

Reconsider the Gen. Milley Scandal

Gen. Mark Milley, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, was so worried then-President Donald Trump might launch a surprise attack against China that he reached out to his Chinese counterpart and assured General Li Zuocheng that Milley would preemptively warn China. That, at least, is the salacious allegation in the new book, "Peril," co-written by Bob Woodward and Robert Costa.

Our elective monarchy

In 1629, frustrated by the unwillingness of Parliament to grant him taxation power, King Charles I of England dissolved the body and had nine members arrested. He did not recall Parliament for over a decade. The intervening period, known as Personal Rule, saw Charles I govern as a de facto dictator, with only a body of councilors to advise him. In 1640, forced by military necessity from Scotland, Charles I recalled Parliament in order to raise money to pay the military; shortly thereafter, stymied by Parliament, he dissolved the body again. But necessity encroached once again, and Charles I finally recalled Parliament. This would be the beginning of the end of his monarchy: the Long Parliament, as it would later be called, directly opposed many of Charles I’s initiatives, and that opposition would devolve into the English Civil War — a war that ended with Charles I’s execution.

Art of Design: White Kitchens

White kitchens never go out of style. It seems every decade or so the famous All White Kitchen comes around voguing. Those that love all white kitchens are thrilled, and those who don't often criticize them for being monochromatic and boring. White kitchens are generally bright, tend to look bigger and are great for every season and compliment every style of decor.

Happy (Jewish) New Year

COVID? Last year, we thought it might be the last year. This year, we know better. In Los Angeles, we've pretty much outlawed COVID. In Florida, you've got a right to have COVID. Texas, too. Me, I'd rather pay taxes and outlaw COVID. It's the new federalism. Red states have...
