“Wait!”

Frankly, I have yet to engage in a direct action campaign that was “well timed” in the view of those who have not suffered unduly from the disease of segregation. For years now I have heard the word “Wait!” It rings in the ear of every Negro with piercing familiarity. This “Wait” has almost always …

Klotzen, nicht Kleckern!

Es gibt keine verzweifelten Lagen, es gibt nur verzweifelte Menschen.- Heinz Guderian Sorry, I didn’t want to write this before I was sure. In one year Donald Trump has managed to shut down the Federal Government. It’s not every day you get to see a Superpower Paper Tiger burst into flames so I recommend pulling …

Of Course Lobsters Feel Pain

I mean, if you don’t like lobsters you don’t really need any excuse, more for me. If you must there’s always Leviticus (better not see you wearing wool and cotton at the same time) or an allergy (my allergy to Bell Peppers is very real, I also don’t like them). To pretend that shooting cows …

Assault and Battery

By the time I was in my Senior Year of High School I lacked but a quarter credit of Gym to graduate and while I scheduled myself an apparently rigorous array of academics I didn’t really take it very seriously because what were they going to do? Flunk me? Umm… as it turns out my …

Art Is A Dangerous Liberal Deception

(Did I mention I write about popular culture?) Actually, sending a selfie to Google is a really bad idea and you shouldn’t do it. Scientific Fact! It’s not about race, or gender, or religion, or… It never is. It’s about Conspiracy Theories! Remember The Stars Hollow Gazette and DocuDharma, your source for only the most …

True Lies

(Yes, I also write about popular culture.) So James Cameron is the man who gave us Sarah Connor and Ellen Ripley, two characters I never hesitate to recommend to anyone, regardless of gender, as epitomes of heroic badassery. For Connor there are just two words, scratched in a picnic table in the desert- “No Fate.” …

House Or Hole? Does It Matter?

You know, I actually saw the Commodores in concert long after they were even a D-List ticket (New Year’s is not the same without Kathy Griffin and Andersen, your boyfriend is a dope). Actually, although I’ve been given free reign to demonstrate my 20 year old vocabulary (I swear, I took an Internet survey!) I …

Every Day Is Exactly The Same.

Have I mentioned I’m a Buddhist recently? Not as a religion, more as a philosophy. I believe I can see the future because I repeat the same routine. I think I used to have a purpose, then again, that might have been a dream. I think I used to have a voice. Now I never …

Birmingham Jail

Fifty years ago Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was murdered at the Lorraine Motel in Memphis, Tennessee. Room 306. Now we have an avowed racist in the White House. Some people think between his death and that of Robert Kennedy it was the end of hope. I agree. The King family and others believe the …

Trump Dumb. Staff Worried.

Hey, I have Cliffs Notes too.

Remember LIBOR?

LIBOR stands for the London Inter Bank Offered Rate, supposedly the average interest rate given by Mega Banks to their most credit worthy customers, other Mega Banks, for short term loans. Not really that important in and of itself since such loans are rare, but it was the basis for the interest rate of Hundreds …

He Can’t See You Right Now. He’s With The Orchids.

I have been accused of being as rigid about schedules as Nero Wolfe as well as weighing as much which is absurd. He is a seventh of a ton and I a mere tenth (What?! You’ve never heard of Nero Wolfe? Get thee to a library or book store). Nero nevertheless has a routine that …
