As a convenience to my readers here is an index of all Posts with Dates, Titles and Subject (where the title is not clear), and guest authors. At first most posts were about DC issues, but once I was running for Congress, I also added national issues. Tax and income issue articles have dates printed RED. Environmental posts are GREEN. Health and wellness issues are BLUE. Political posts are PURPLE. My political information and original ideas are highlighted. I would love to see more comments.
I am currently running for DC Council, At Large as a member of the DC Statehood Green Party. If you wish to support my candidacy, please send a check marked ELECT G. LEE AIKIN, to 1754 Swann St., NW, Washington, DC 20009
