United in Condemnation & Tonic: A Letter to the Midwest

21 February 2020 Lovettsville, VA Dear Scott, It is Sunday morning, everyone is fed, and there is still six inches of crusty, icy snow upon the ground. The will to put my boots back on and be upthrusting and productive outside dwindles with each contented sigh of little Mungo here at my feet.  It is a good time to answer your letter. I had thought of answering it last Sunday, regardless of the momentous date, but couldn’t trust you to leave the easy joke alone. It appears we are finally in agre...

Winter Sun & Guilty Joy: A Letter to The Midwest

From the editor: Rant readers following the verbal sparring between our own Scott Beuerlein and guest ranter Marianne Willburn may be wondering if the daggers had been sheathed for good or just for the holidays. This week, after the two met up at the Mid-Atlantic Nursery Trade Show (MANTS) and Scott spent an evening good-humoredly roasting her at Maryland’s Brookside Gardens, Marianne offers an olive branch with a few thorns and a tough topic for discussion….in letter form. Will he answer?  Love...

California Senate hopeful Lena Gonzalez states her case one doorstep at a time

LONG BEACH — Lena Gonzalez is the front-runner in a special-election runoff next month for the California Senate. She was the top vote-winner in the primary. She boasts the big endorsements and fundraising checks. She’s a Democratic candidate in a mostly Democratic district. And she’s worried.

No one is being fooled by this “John” business. And yes, it’s pronounced exactly how you’d ...
