August 12, 1958 was a big day in my mother’s life. I don’t even remember it
I’ve intentionally stayed out the the raging debate over the terrible events in Virginia last weekend and the adequacy, or lack thereof, of President Trump’s response to them.
I consider most of the ranting, from both the left and the right, to be bullshit political posturing, or ass covering, that will make no positive difference at all in improving our quality of life. It won’t make a positive difference how we relate to people who don’t look like us, dress like us or talk like us.

I’m inviting my little corner of the Internet to use the upset caused by recent events to create some love and harmony. I think its contagious.

Justin Flancbaum, the Executive Director of the Lakewood Municipal Utility Authority and a candidate to replace Dave Rible as a LD 30 State Assemblyman at the GOP County Committee on Monday, August 14, took issue with former Wall Township Mayor Bob McKenna questioning his credentials in a public forum and provided MMM with answers to the questions that McKenna raised in his column published earlier today.
