Straight Talk!

Straight talk is often in short supply.  But once in a while a breath of fresh air comes our way:

U.S. Defense Secretary Ash Carter says that Ramadi was lost to ISIS because Iraqi defenders, even with an overwhelming manpower advantage, ran away.

Sheryl Sandberg honestly expresses her feelings about her husband’s accidental death.

Steph Curry’s daughter, Riley, takes on the media at her father’s news conference.

Every day we are blessed with a new revelation about corruption at FIFA.

While it is easy to take a jaundiced view of the media frenzy around Caitlyn Jenner’s coming out, she has shown courage and integrity in choosing to be herself.

As the NSA’s data collecting is cut back and our right to privacy is given more weight, Edward Snowden looks better and better.

Every day we are bombarded by self-serving, duplicitous comments by those seeking power (check out all candidates seeking the presidency) or those in power (check them out too) so it is worth reminding ourselves that it doesn’t always have to be that way.
