Doug Clifton

Doug is a veteran of the Vietnam War, a Postal Service retiree, and a writer whose works often share the recurring theme of choices made or not regarding opportunities seized or missed.  He still takes seriously his oath to safeguard the Constitution and the nation it represents, while at the same time trying not to take himself too seriously.  Lately he has found himself transformed into a reluctant radical.  When not saving the world, he enjoys the moving meditations of archery and rock climbing—two pastimes which have shown him that the sound of one hand holding a bow or crimping a flake of rock and that of one hand clapping are the same.

Mary Kay Jordan Fleming

Mary Kay is a professor emerita of psychology, mother of two, doting grandmother to a goldendoodle—and a relentless advocate for children.   She is an award-winning writer of humorous essays (Erma Bombeck 2016, National Society of Newspaper Columnists 2019, 2020) who was recruited by blogster and friend, Kimberly, to pour out some of her heart for social justice onto this page.   In her newfound spare time, Mary Kay constantly rearranges dozens of post-it notes on which she has recorded ideas for a bestselling memoir which she may or may not live long enough to write.  Find her humor publications on  Facebook.
