I write commentaries for Metro Connection, a radio program on D.C.’s NPR station, WAMU.  A lot of people ask me what a commentary is and I usually just say it’s like radio’s version of an editorial piece you would find on the back page of a newspaper.  Usually, for me, I write about what’s on my mind and how it applies to the world, the economy, the area we live in, or how we live.

WAMU recently redesigned their website and all these links changed. Please standby while I find the time to re-link them.

My first commentary aired in July of 2008 and was about the joys of living within the rules of Homeowner’s Association.

Listen to Associated Inc.

My next commentary aired in August of 2008 and was about the letdown of Social Networking.

Listen to Business, Social Networking Style.

In late September, 2008, I wrote about my perception of women.

Listen to Female Issues.

In October, I commented about why it is we got into this little economic pickle.

Find Retail Therapy.

In February of 2009, I wondered why we should care about Valentine’s Day.

Have a heart Here.

In April, I wondered, “Where are you from?”

In May, my thoughts were of grief, and how to help someone who is dealing with it.

Listen to Caring, The Manual.

In July of 2009, I was all fired up about DC’s Demented Drivers!

In September, I offered a solution to our health care crisis.

Listen to my take on American Health.

In December, I noticed that DC finally got our own Reality TV, and wondered why anyone cared.

My first commentary of 2010 was a look back at the lessons of 2009.

Hard Knocked 2009

In February, I was inspired by my experience renting out my townhouse.  Believe or not, it has very little to do with the real estate market.

Listen to Civility = Fear here!

What do I have in common with Mike Rowe, host of Dirty Jobs?  Listen to my commentary from May to find out.
