Mari Meehan is a retired public relations executive who has become extremely frustrated with the political climate of the United States. Meehan has an insatiable curiosity and an innate desire to find out what happened to common sense and the spirit of human kindness. For nine years she walked the same route with her dog, day in and day out. Her blog, Dogwalk Musings, began as a compilation of things she thought about while walking with her dog. She's sometimes right, sometimes not — and is always open to intelligent and civil discussion.
