Arlen Grossman retired in 2010 from the teaching profession to devote full-time to writing. He has a Journalism degree from Cal State Northridge (as well as a M.S. in Counseling from Cal State L.A.) and has done freelance writing over the years, with articles and letters in many major newspapers and magazines. He started his blogs in July 2011.
Arlen is a self-professed news junkie and passionate about politics. He sees our country and much of the world going in entirely the wrong direction. He remembers when the United States was a functioning democracy–rather than a plutocracy– and the American Dream was more than just a dream. He wishes to be part of the process of bringing fairness and democracy back to our country, and–if he has any spare time left–saving the planet.
The Big Picture Report is a compilation of original writing by the editor as well as relevant and interesting material and quotes from other sources. Arlen is a regular contributor to OpEdNews.com.
Arlen writes a weekly “What’s Your QQ?” (Quotation Quotient) quiz column in The Monterey County Herald, now in it’s sixth year. He also does a radio quiz segment (with prizes) and talks politics Fridays at 8:00am PT (live streamed) on Monterey’s KRXA 540AM progressive talk radio station, writes a “Quirky Quotations” quiz for Monterey’s monthly Foolish Times newspaper, and a monthly “What’s Your QQ?” at Go60.us, a senior-themed website, and several other senior publications.
Arlen’s latest (mis)adventure is a one-hour political talk program with co-host Paul Karrer called PoliTalk Sunday, 10-11am PT on KRXA 540AM (live streamed).
Arlen lives on the Monterey Peninsula in California with his wife, one of his two children, and an assortment of animals.
