In light of the latest comments “misspoke” this time by Missouri Republican Rep. Todd Akin, I thought would republish this post I wrote in January. Please feel free to share it with the political officials in your district.


On January 25th, my horoscope in The Globe and Mail read:

Think Before You Speak

This was a sign for me to finally publish this blog post: “Think before you speak (or write)” 

My mother is responsible for drilling that statement into my head. I can’t tell you how many times I heard it growing up. Nor can I tell you how many times I heard her voice in my head saying it before I said something that could have ended up with my butt in a sling.

I guess I must be one of the majority because today, words are flying willy nilly, verbally and in writing.
