Can we all agree that it’s great to have a President and First Lady who can hold their own on the dance floor? Could you picture George Bush (either one) even trying?

Can we all agree that if perception is reality, the California drought is over in the minds of most Californians?

Can we all agree that every week death seems to be chipping away  cultural foundation of the Baby Boomer generation?

Can we all agree that it’s hard to believe that 40 years after a landmark sexual harassment suit was brought against UC Berkeley, the school is still dealing with the issue?

Can we all agree that the real goal of the House panel seeking the names of fetal researchers is pretty obvious?

Can we all agree the state of the European Intelligence community makes it pretty obvious a unified Europe is a long way off? How long until another city is added to the list of successful ISIS targets?

Can we all agree that  the Brussels attack suggests the war against ISIS will not end quickly, but at least we seem to be making progress on the ground?

Can we all agree the primary campaign has produced new scenes of dysfunction that we never thought we’d see?  Who predicted any of the following from this week: Bush endorses Cruz, Paul Ryan tries to clean up the campaign, or Trump and Cruz defend the their wives and morals?

Can we all agree the the latest report on the lengths the NFL would reach to prove concussions and repeated hits to the head are not a problem, in simply mind boggling?

Can we all agree that the conviction of Radovan Karadzic is a milestone for the International Criminal Tribunal, but it will not end the violence in the Balkans?

Can we all agree it’s nice to have another report telling us who screwed up the water in Flint, but it would even better to have an overall plan to fix it?

Can we all agree that the real takeaway from this week’s primaries was the disaster that is the voting system promulgated by the GOP?

Can we all agree that Mr. Trump and Mr. Cruz have proven once again how their views on Muslims diverge from the mainstream in this country?

Can we all agree that at least 50% of the country agrees with Mr. Obama’s handling of his job despite what the Republicans think?CeSKD1nVAAATRaW

Can we all agree that one thing we all have in common is embarrassment over the state of the GOP?

Can we all agree that most Americans think The President’s trip to Cuba was well-timed and on the money? There are already reports of soaring prices for the few hotels rooms available – capitalism wins again.

Can we all agree there is no place for sexism in tennis?

Can we all agree that when your hosts (AIPAC) have to apologize for your speech (Mr. Trump), you probably didn’t make a good impression?

Can we all agree that revelations that mind-based therapies can help people with back pain, may be new to some people, but many therapists, (such as my wife) have been recommending it for years?
