Apr 4, 2016 Kathy Fennessy commented on Homosexual Sympathizers Infiltrate GOP Platform Committee; Republicans & Queers Equally Aghast.
Her son, John, is delightful: "A son of conservative activist Phyllis Schlafly has publicly revealed that he is homosexual, while at the same time defending his mother's political views and the Republican Party's 'family values' campaign theme." [LA Times, 9/19/92]
Mar 22, 2016 Kathy Fennessy commented on Hillary Clinton's Comments on Israel, Versus Donald Trump's Comments on Israel.
Clinton's disregard for Palestine is nothing to celebrate.
Mar 19, 2016 Kathy Fennessy commented on Hello, My Name Is Doris Is Harold and Maude for Millennials.
@1 I hope you like it. Some reviews have been a little condescending, like finding as many cute synonyms for the word "old" as possible. @2 It isn't better than Harold and Maude; it just starts off with a similar premise. Ultimately, it's about Doris's empowerment through meeting John (as Manohla Dargis puts it, "he sees her" when no one else does). In Hal Ashby's film, it's about Harold's empowerment through his relationship with Maude, but the context and tone here are different, i.e. it's less romantic and more pragmatic.
