  • POEM: Caseworker,1962 by Donal Mahoney (8/7/2015 4:04:00 PM)

    In some ways, things are better but in many ways worse. In 1962, at least in Chicago, there was still the JFK hope that so many had- black and white- whether it was realistic or not. I don't sense that communal hope today. In St. Louis, blacks are killing blacks on almost a daily basis but only recently has the black community organized to try to do something about it. Although I am white as a sheet and probably not qualified to judge for that reason, I don't know what good black people can do to disarm black people with guns who shoot both good and bad black people. Al Sharpton comes to St. Louis only when a white cop shoots a black. Sometime even Jesse Jackson still shows up. I would hate to be a caseworker today.

  • POEM: Flummery by Elizabeth Wrobel (2/19/2015 3:51:00 PM)

    Indeed flattery may not work on the author but it does work even though some famous writer once said that liquor is quicker.
