The Personal is Political

You'll find the good, the bad and the you-gotta-be-kidding-me at the annual postcard exhibition at South Puget Sound Community College. There are professional artists in the show, including many of Olympia's best, and there are many rank amateurs. Well over half of the works are crudely executed and either corny

France to Vietnam: Nightmares of a Baby Boomer

One thing that this country of ours has had a hard time wrapping its head around is the notion of post-traumatic stress disorder. It occurs in our everyday citizens' lives, making its home in the minds of our friends and family members in the days, months and years following harrowing

Heroes & Zeroes

When disaster struck, JBLM was ready to help

For months leading up to the anticipated runs of high-speed trains on tracks along Interstate 5 and Joint Base Lewis-McChord, we stressed safety at nearby railroad crossings.

American Idiot

There's a lot to like in American Idiot, the Tony-winning adaptation of Green Day's mega-hit concept album of the same name, even for people (like myself) who might charitably describe themselves as indifferent to the band.
