Marsha Ramps

Chicago is Marsha Ramps' life long home but has kept up with activities around the world.

"I've always closely followed the news and have a clear picture of my own identity and opinions. Now I would like others to know the world as I see it," she said.

While she has not had formal journalistic training, she explains, “John Kass* never attended journalism school and neither did I. Although I’m decades younger than John, we share the same birthday and that’s good enough for me! Besides, Kass has never lived in Chicago.” 

*Kass is a Chicago Tribune columnist.

Politico said you were miffed over SNL's gender-bending skit where a woman played top White House player Sean Spicer. So, you must have been doubly miffed when another woman played Attorney General Jeff Sessions this last weekend.
