About Kate Ryan

Me (in green) and my daughter in Rome, Italy

My name is Kate Ryan, and I started writing this blog as an outlet for my (many) opinions.  Why the “Kitchen Table”?  Because when I was growing up there was no subject that was too controversial, too weird, or too messy to discuss at my parent’s kitchen table.  This is where I learned to think out an issue, frame arguments, and value other people’s opinions.  Too many people these days don’t talk around their kitchen tables – so I invite you to talk around mine.

   On a personal note, I hail from Western New York.  I am married with one daughter  and I have been professionally employed at the same place for over 25 years.  I am a proud Union member and have a growing appreciation for European Social Democracy.

   I hope that you enjoy discussing issues with me.  I am looking forward to it!

I HAVE been on a long vacation….the health care battle wore me out. I’m gearing up for the next fight, however. Hope to get back in the swing, soon!

Dear Kate:
Catherine sent me the link to your blog. I love reading your opinions. Your Mom would be proud along with her fellow Democrat Aunt Sally. Keep writing because all my friends are Republicans and you are keeping me on my toes when it comes to arguing the point with them.
Your cousin,
Mary Snyder
