Two old-fashioned, fact-oriented journalists are behind the content on this website. You can see by our photos that we've been around the block. We are patriots who share a common concern: that our grandchildren and all the other children of the generations who will someday lead our nation learn what a great country this is and the opportunities it offers. Eventually, they will learn the good, the bad and the ugly of American History. But just as children's toys are rated for age appropriateness, so too must their education. And, most of all, children must be taught how to think, not what to think.
I'm a former TV news reporter, writer and producer with 50 years experience in news and public policy reporting. I've piled up a few awards, including three local Emmys, in my half-century of work.
In Washington, D.C. I reported for the local ABC news station covering the Federal Government, Economics and Personal Finance. I did that for 10 years. Earlier in my career I wrote and produced the 6pm or 11pm news at TV stations in Washington, DC; Detroit, Miami and Louisville.

She later completed a Masters in Counseling and is a licensed Marriage and Family therapist. She has traveled extensively and has lived abroad several times both during her childhood years in Europe and, most recently, with her husband and five children in Singapore.
