Editor’s Note: Upon reviewing some old posts on my website, I have to say, “Look here!” I was writing about Bernie Sanders two years before he announced his run for President in 2016. I must be as consistent in my views as he is. And as right. :-) ~ January 21, 2019.

  • Restoration of the shrinking middle class

Who’s Writing?

JoAnn Chateau

JoAnn likes progressive politics and loves the canines. She writes fiction about Chester, the Alpha Bichon -- with a dash of humor and a dab of Poli-Sci. Her views and insights are tinted by a former profession in Counseling, Christian theological studies, and training in Library and Information Science. Retired now, JoAnn enjoys the creative life.

Chester

Chester is a scruffy little Bichon dog, with a congenial Napoleon Complex, and stars in "The Chester Chronicles." He sometimes reports independent Canine News -- NO corporate treats accepted, NO corporate bias. Woof!
