“Independent,” and other lies…
I have heard once too often that claim of being “Independent” about party affiliation. What it really means is a wolf in sheep’s clothing to pretend a divorce from the current Republican dysfunctions; birthers, Paliners and Limbaughers, to name a few “ers.”
The claim of “Independent” is merely a front. Case in point is the newly elected Massachusetts “Independent” senator whose voting record is 96% Republican. Upcoming candidates will likely put on the same costume to downplay a died-in-the-wool Republican.

Sue Langenberg’s “Hot Flashes” column was born at weekly publication Freeport iNK, (now defunct) in Northern Illinois. It followed her B.A. from Northern Illinois University, class of ’98. It was the year that they let hags out! The iNK column began at her keyboard whenever she had some imaginary bone to pick about life or a typing tantrum to feel better. Along the way, the paper also published her theatre/cultural submissions and various other assignments.
