“To the Ventor 5/7/14, don’t hold your breath waiting for an accounting of the funds raised for the ‘Prescott 19.’ We’re still waiting for an accounting of the missing millions funneled to the Red Cross for 9/11 victims.”
Back in 1994 — long before Oprah announced her desire for brown angels and her fans then flooded her with brown angels — I wrote a piece, “Angels of Color: Divinely Inspired or Socially Constructed?” that appeared in Diversity: A Journal of Multicultural Issues.
Writing for the Ahwatukee Foothills News is not without its perks. For one thing, I get to use the phrase “my editor” in a casual, off-hand way as if my next stop is the Algonquin Round Table. And then there was the time I got recognized at the mall; Dad, Interrupted was surprised I could fit my head in the car after that one.
I am really disgusted with the Federal Reserve. I don’t like the fact that there has never been an audit of their finances. Everything that the FED does affects America.

Mango is a sweet love bug. He enjoys giving hugs and relishes his time walking. Mango delights in belly rubs and will reward you with big kisses. He is very intelligent and knows basic commands such as sit and stay. Mango has an abundance of personality and aspires to be the family comedian. His tail never stops wagging and he is a jolly and joyful boy. He will make an excellent addition to a fun-loving, energetic and loving family. Mango is great on a leash and understands basic commands. He is a bit of a clown but is a well-tempered dog. He is going to make a great family member. Mango is looking for an active home with daily walks/jogs, weekend hikes and playtime at the dog park. Another canine friend would be great, too. Of course love for a big lap dog is a must for this love bug.
Sometimes, something’s so bad you can’t help but watch. Take any number of reality or competition TV shows, or highlight reels of grotesque sports injuries that should make your stomach turn but instead have you rewinding to watch again in slow motion.

The Broadway song “Send in the Clowns” is the most recognizable number in Stephen Sondheim’s musical “A Little Night Music.” Many famous artists recorded the tune, including Frank Sinatra, Grace Jones, Barbra Streisand, Shirley Bassey and Sarah Vaughan.
This sweet young boy has an adventurous spirit and unbridled enthusiasm. He loves to keep active and is a great running partner. People fawn over this sweetie as he shows off his little under bite and gives them a head tilt. His foster mom says he is a big clown.
