The Message Of The Message

The Message Of The Message By Leonard Zwelling          In this piece by Frank Bruni, it is pointed out, quite correctly, I believe, that the message being delivered may be more important than the package in which it comes.

Noisy Withdrawal By Leonard Zwelling          What is happening in Washington, DC stirs a lot of memories in me. All bad.          As the two articles (and many others) illustrate, the president is now kicking ass and taking names with regard to anyone who opposes what he wants in the wake of his acquittal in ...

I’ll Vote For Amy

I’ll Vote For Amy By Leonard Zwelling          I believe that early voting for the Texas primary starts on Tuesday.

Shadows and Light

Shadows And Light: 2020 Gets Clearer By Leonard Zwelling          It is the best live album ever released in my opinion. It’s Shadows and Light by Joni Mitchell. It’s a recording of a 1980 concert in Santa Barbara that was part of her Mingus Tour. I was lucky. I saw this concert in 1983 at ...
