RIP ROBIN WILLIAMS

News

“Death is nature's way of saying, "Your table's ready."” --Robin Williams RIP. The 63 year old comedian and actor Robin Williams has been found dead. The Oscar winning celebrity is dead from an apparent suicide.

His wife Susan Schneider says she lost her husband and her best friend, while his fans lost one of its most beloved artists and beautiful human beings.

POLITICIAN PUNDIT

Other

Actor Ronald Reagan was elected US President, as well as fellow thespian Arnold Schwarzenegger and celebrity wrestler Jessee Ventura Governors of California and Minnesota, respectively.

The parade of celebrity political pundits dates back to Charles Lindbergh, who used to pal around with Hermann Göring back in the 1930's. Jane Fonda once inspected North Vietnamese gun placements during the war in the 60's. And others may want to trace the history of celebrity advocacy back as far as John Wilkes Booth, who shot Abraham Lincoln.

Empathy Education

Solution

Always Listen, Open Up, Offer Affection, Focus Outward, Withhold Judgement, Offer Help.

Become Interested, Volunteer and Help, Challenge Prejudices, Use Imagination, and Respect.

Do not get discouraged, showing empathy takes repetition to make it a habit.

Avoid "why" questions because this comes across as accusatory.

Others can see through insincerity and your relationship could end.

US stakes in midterm elections

News

Although some will move from shutdown villains to Congressional royalty, there is more than control of Congress at stake when US voters go to the polls today. Americans will vote in 36 gubernatorial races, they will elect thousands of state officials and have their say in about 140 statewide referendums. Voters who sit out some elections, but vote today could be playing a vital role by helping to keep our democracy on track.

Trump Tactics

Problem

The Donald's third grade tactics may be popular with some bullies and with the under-educated, but apparently not with the rest of US. The emperor has no clothes, always repeats himself, saying very little of substance and with virtually no concrete platform to stand on. Apparently when dealing with the under-educated, less is best?
