About

Image: White woman with short salt & pepper hair and glasses with black frames standing in a grassy area holding a large golden retriever puppy with it tongue hanging out. I’m a civil rights lawyer and dog lover living in Denver, Colorado.  My husband and I founded the Civil Rights Education and Enforcement Center (CREEC) in 2013 after 17 years of plaintiffs’ civil rights practice as Fox & Robertson.  If you would like to support CREEC and its civil rights mission, toss a coin or two in our direction!

Here is a quick list of things I’m more or less unequivocally for or against, so you can put me on your own personal political spectrum:

  • Vigorously enforced civil rights laws and regulations:  for.
  • Marriage equality:  for.
  • Single-payer national health care:  for.
  • President Obama:  for/deeply nostalgic.
  • The Democratic Party:  for.
  • The Republican Party: against/terrified for the future of the world as we know it.
  • Racial and religious profiling:  against.
  • Hate speech laws:  against.
  • Respecting other people and their beliefs when you speak:  for.
  • Pretending you’re opposing “political correctness” when in fact you just want license to be an asshole:  against.
  • The Constitution:  for.
  • Pretending the Constitution is only open to a single interpretation:  against.
  • Abortion: against.
  • “Pro-life” politicians who vote to curtail health care:  against.
  • Robust and inclusive immigration policy:  for.
  • Legalization of most recreational drugs:  for.
  • Right wing politicians who talk about family values but sexually harass their co-workers or try to pick up other men in restrooms:  against in principle, but for in the sense that they provide good blog fodder.

    One of my Denver friends forwarded your blog to me, because she knew I would enjoy your post on baseball and your attempt to sell the Rockies. She was right … but I found many other posts and thoughts to enjoy. Glad to have discovered you!
