Why No Process to Test Obama’s Case for Bombing Syria?

Here are three links to pieces I’ve written on how we need, internationally and nationally, to create processes for testing claims for war.  Let’s start a movement!

Read from A New Financial You in 28 Days! A 37-Day Plan at Dartmouth College Reunion!

At my college reunion this weekend, I read from ANFY28A37DP  as part of an Authors’ Panel I organized. I read “Day 25,” which was excerpted last summer in Spirituality & Health magazine’s “Books in Bloom” blog, which unfortunately isn’t online right now.

Four of my classmates, all wonderful writers, also read:

Valerie Frankel - author of the novel Four of a Kind  (2012), the memoir It’s Hard Not to Hate You (2011), Men Are Stupid . . . And They Like Big Boobs: A Woman’s Guide to Beauty Through Plastic Surgery (2008) (co-authored with Joan Rivers), and 24 other books; articles in New York Times, Self, Allure, etc.
Stephanie Losee – co-author of Office Mate and You’ve Only Got Three Seconds; contributor to anthologies such as The Maternal is Political (2008) and Cup of Comfort for Writers, etc; articles in O, The Oprah Magazine, Fortune, The Los Angeles Times, The New York Post, The Huffington Post, San Francisco Magazine, NPR, etc.
Meg Houston Maker – writes in Palate Press: The Online Wine Magazine and Alimentum: The Literature of Food; blogs at Maker’s Table: A Journal of Food, Wine, and the Pleasures of the Table.

Jonathan Silverman  – author of Nine Choices: Johnny Cash and American Culture (2010). Read an interview about the book with Jonathan here.

Unfortunately, Harold Ambler (Don’t Sell Your Coat: Surprising Truths About Climate Change (2011), and Ever True: The Story of Brown Crew (2009); articles in The Wall Street Journal, The Huffington Post, etc.; blogs at Talking About the Weather) had to bow out, because he had to soundcheck his band for a performance at dinner.

I suffer from literary envy now and then, but when a writer has a band, my envy goes off the scales!

Thanks to all our classmates who attended!
