About The Author

The purpose of this BLOG is to express my feelings, thoughts and beliefs about law, politics and the social issues confronting Angelinos, Californians, and Americans. I want solutions to problems not political rhetoric. I invite everyone to comment on my views.

I have had an avid interest in history and politics most of my life.  I read BusinessWeek and Newsweek every week and subscribe to both local newspapers.  Although I am an independent now, I was a Democrat.  I met my wife at a Beverly Hills Democratic Party lawn party in Cheviot Hills (that is immediately south of Beverly Hills).

I was born in Canada but have lived in Los Angeles, California since the age of 10.  After graduation from California State University Northridge I worked in manufacturing materials management for 40 years.  I am now a legal document assistant and notary. 

Where do you hope to be in five years? It’s the favorite employer question at an employee interview.  I no longer have to put up with that question because I now have my own business.  For discussion sake I plan to be in Leisure Village in five years. 

Leisure Village does exist. It’s a gated senior community in Camarillo, California.

Update October 10, 2018

Wow! Time flies when you are having fun.  Newsweek as a publication no longer exists.  I did not move to Leisure World.  I am now a member of a neighborhood council. That is an advisory group that tries to improve the community.  Just added to the blog is a fiction category that is all about fantasy.


  1. Hi:

    I was hoping we could use your ’scribing’ talent for our website.


    You blogged about Fareed Zakaria which is one of our featured “BSwatch”
    shows. We’re hoping to round up a few people who can occasionally
    contribute perspective (via an article/blog) on the shows – maybe a
    recent episode, future direction, plot shortcomings etc.

    What’s in it for you?

    Primarily a larger audience back channeled to your blog. We don’t pay
    but the site has
    a lot of promise and we’re pretty excited about getting it off the
    ground. Let me know what you think

  2. Don,
    Glad we talked this afternoon. Looks like we have more of mutual interest than I thought, I mean just our political views. I just got off the phone with Jeanlle my granddaughter a very recent graduate of UC San Diego and a very bright, personable, aspiring law student. Her home town is Camarillo, CA.
    Also with this blog I understand how you are spending 4 hours a day on the computer. See you at Current Events tomorrow.

  3. Don,
    This Times article deals with the use of DNA and inparticuler Familial DNA in the apprehension of the “Grim Sleeper” David Franklin Jr. responsible for the murders of at least 10 women.
    At issue is the forfeiture of individual privacy rights guaranteed under the Constitution for the sake of our protection and law enforcement with such criminals walking the streets.
