I'll be taking an 'unpaid leave of absence' from my job at the Global Network from December 15-March 15, 2020 in order to help my friend Lisa Savage on her campaign for the US Senate in Maine. She's running as a Maine Green Independent Party member and needs to gather 2,000 petition signatures of registered Greens during that period. I'll be back to GN after March 15.

TIME OUT - BIG START FOR ORIOLES



The Baltimore Orioles, my favorite baseball team, are off to a great start.  They are 3-1 to begin the season but the best story is first baseman Chris Davis.

Davis drove in a career-high five runs yesterday, giving him 16 RBIs this season, the most of any player through his team's first four games since RBIs became an official stat in 1920, according to the Elias Sports Bureau.

Davis also became just the fourth player in major league history to homer in his team's first four games — joining Willie Mays (1971), Mark McGwire (1998) and Nelson Cruz (2011).

I was born in Maryland but since I grew up in a military family we moved all over the place - I never really had a home town.  The Orioles became my home town - they were my touchstone.

I'm enjoying this run so far.
