Welcome…

Welcome to this, an on-line assemblage of media stories; opinion pieces; statics and data, which you may hopefully find useful in trying to understand happenings in your local community; throughout our country; and indeed around the world.

This is an “addendum” to my Blog, Frankly Speaking. These are just a few of the articles, data, and opinion pieces that I use as sources of information. There is more – so much more – that I could post here. As time permits, I will add more items of interest – each containing a piece that makes up a bigger picture of our lives and the world around us.

Feel free to contact me and suggest other items that you feel might be useful in some way.

Enjoy!
