Behind the Romney play 

Writes Like She Talks - Thu, 12/01/2016 - 23:40
There are probably ten or twenty books-worth of articles now in existence that speculate as to why Donald Trump does anything he does. But I find the speculation around why Trump keeps doing a do-si-do with Mitt Romney to be some of the most intriguing. Chris Cillizza in the Washington Post, Frank Bruni in the…

On Flag Burning

Writes Like She Talks - Wed, 11/30/2016 - 12:32
In the Spring of 1982, no longer a Chinese major or a freshman, I began to finish off the liberal arts requirements at my new college within the same university.

Do not trust Donald Trump, unless you want to be disappointed, repeatedly. Not because he lies. Not because he exaggerates. Not because he has evil intent. But because he will always put himself first. In Donald Trump’s case, putting oneself first isn’t the common notion we have about doing what is in one’s best interest.…

Flame wars are back

Writes Like She Talks - Thu, 11/24/2016 - 01:11
Back in the day, when one blog would go after another blog, we called it a flame war. Why we did it? Who can say. We were picked on so often by so many non-blogs, it hardly seemed productive to pick on each other. But mostly it was tied to legitimacy and eyeballs. At least…
