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.

John McCain is really coming across as a war-monger. In a video caught, apparently, by a camera phone, he jokingly sings “Bomb, Bomb, Bomb, Iran” to the tune of the old Beach Boys hit, “Barbara Ann.” Chuckling as he takes … Continue reading
President Bush is hearing two different arguments from two of his bigshots overseeing his mess in Iraq. Last week, Bush listened to two contrasting visions of the U.S. future in Iraq – neither of which the voters last November voted … Continue reading

My first topic for my very first local access show was the Traveling Vietnam Wall. I was somewhat nervous at first, when the camera was on me alone. But once we got started, I really had a good time. My … Continue reading
