This is a new experience for me. I will try to link some previous Facebook posts in the near future. Until then you can find me at www.facebook.com/stephenbetsy.pell.9
6-13-17 It is difficult to ignore the video of the first full cabinet meeting at the White House yesterday. It is sad that powerful and intelligent people were required to sing the praises of our current president. I do not believe any of those comments were genuine and heartfelt, but I could be wrong. I do not have a high opinion of politicians in general and our current president in particular. This kind of public fawning might be expected in a dictatorship like North Korea, but not here. Instead of getting down to work for we the people, discussing and assessing issues of national importance, these individuals had to spend their time talking about how great it was to work for our current president. In my opinion there are many national issues to discuss and here was one more opportunity to begin that discussion wasted.
Stephen R Pell has been doing a Friday Update on Facebook since being diagnosed with cancer in 2014 as a way to keep friends updated on his medical condition. Over time that focus has changed to include many topics, from overall health, hobby gardens, golden retrievers to philosophy. Friday updates usually happen on that day, but occasionally, depending on current events, could happen any day.
