About Me – Charlotte A. Weybright
I own an older home in the West Central historic district in Fort Wayne, Indiana, directly across from the St. Marys River. I have four grown sons and nine grandchildren - five granddaughters and four grandsons.
I enjoy working on my home and gardening, and I enjoy all types of crafts. I have my own library, now approaching 1,000 books. I am also a vegetarian and have been since 1990.
I have a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science from Indiana University and a Juris Doctorate from the Valparaiso University School of Law.
I enjoy the political scene with all of its passions and faults. Writing is one of my favorite activities, but it seems that I never have as much time as I would like to devote to the task.
Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog.

The United States is lurching and convulsing through a shift in a number of paradigms related to issues such as energy independence, the role of capitalism, and the place of unbridled consumerism in our society. The following are two definitions … Continue reading
Let’s face it – they are called oil companies for a reason. They certainly are not called alternative energy companies. Just a few months ago, we were looking at the bitter end of the gas nozzle and forking over a … Continue reading
One of the ethanol industry’s largest producers – VeraSun – has fallen victim to bankruptcy partly due to bad hedging bets – a method of locking in prices for commodities. Corn is the most commonly used raw material used to … Continue reading
As I watched the Republican drivel coming from the Xcel Center, I kept looking for signs of inclusiveness in the audience. I thought surely there must be some minorities in attendance. As the cameras panned the crowd, I kept looking … Continue reading
Speaking on an oil derrick site recently, John McCain delivered extraordinarily good news to the beleaguered gasoline-consuming public as he explained why we must drill offshore. His information was received from – ta dah – the oil companies. Although his … Continue reading
For those who don’t know him, Mark Souder can be a shifty, manipulative, and self-righteous person. His latest display of all three characteristics comes in the form of a taxpayer paid mailing with a number of questions to be answered … Continue reading
Standing shoulder to shoulder – almost (Souder was absent but I am sure he was there in spirit), the Four Apopletic Republican Horsemen from Indiana demanded that a vote on opening up more land and coastal areas to drilling be … Continue reading
I believe we can do anything we set out minds to do. We have shown and we have proven over and over in our history that we are capable of and can accomplish great things. Our fore fathers and fore … Continue reading
