My sister and I joke that there is a scandal/drama/hot messes within the Trump administration -- EVERYDAY!

This tumult is so draining and, yes, horrifying!

This nation is teetering on the edge and the players within the Trump administration are so showboat and cutthroat among each other. This is taking America down and demoralizing those of us watching this train wreck.

It is time for us to rise up and keep Trump at bay. If not, his solid 39% -- in collusion with others -- could get him back in office.

And, if that happens, that could mean Trump would be the last person in my life.

I can't let that happen!

I go because I have fun

In a few weeks, I'm going to the National Association of Black Journalists convention in New Orleans.

People think I'm going to go because of all the workshops.


Folks think I'm going because of all of the fabulous speakers. (However, the cast from Queen Sugar will be there and that is a plus.)


And they think I'm going to go because of the contacts.

Well, maybe.

I go because I love the vibes.  I love being around intelligent people.  I love seeing my besties who I only see once a year like Kathy Times, Melanie Burney, Sarah Glover and Charles Gidney

I go because they offer the opportunities to see free movies.

I go to hang with my soror and media friend Maudlyne of the Sun Times.

I go because I can get starstruck seeing all of these media folks I only see on television and I see them upclose.

I go because I love being helpful so I'm going to assist Dorothy Tucker with her campaign.

I go because I get a high, a charge and a good feeling when I'm around all of these dynamic people.

And I go because for a very basic reason:

 I have fun.
