Home » About


carol A blogger since March of 2005, I write about politics, the military, leadership, science, our space program, Texas news or whatever else that strikes my fancy.  I credit favorite writers and public opinion makers. Comments on Congress, the judiciary and  the Obama presidency are regular and in the interests of peace, security and justice.

A retired counselor, I am equal parts Techie and Artist. I am a lifelong Democrat who came to the Southwest to attend college. I married, had kids and have lived here all my adult life.  My views are grounded in the existential questions of finding meaning in suffering, maintaining purpose in life, and defending sanity in an occasionally insane world.

  1. Dear Southwest Progressive,

    My name is Barbara O’ Brien and my blogging at The Mahablog, Crooks and Liars, AlterNet, and elsewhere on the progressive political and health blogophere has earned me the notoriety of being a panelist at the Yearly Kos Convention and a featured guest blogger at the Take Back America Conference in Washington, DC.

    I’m contacting you because I found your site in a prominent political and health site blog search and want to tell you about my newest blogging platform —the public concern of health care and its reform. Our shared concerns include health reform, public health, safe workplaces, and asbestos contamination.

    To increase awareness on these important issues, my goal is to get a resource link on your site or even allow me to provide a guest posting. Please contact me back, I hope to hear from you soon. Drop by our site in the meantime—www.maacenter.org/blog.
