Michael, Todd and Margo

I listened to Michael Berry recently on his Houston based (syndicated) radio talk program talk about a woman who lay dying of lung cancer (age 78 as I recall) but wanted to smoke. Some of the family, distant literally and figuratively, Bostonians and cousins, did not wish for her to do so (for her own […]

Something Different: Streety; A Short Story

There is always a lull after an electi0n. And a period where we have all had enough of politics, at least for a while. I have been posting some writings of Paul Yarbrough for a few weeks and he suggested a short story. Paul grew up and lives in the deep South. I hope this […]

Mépris

I have heard many things post our great experiment in democracy (the fool’s errand–somebody get a rope and give it to our leaders!), but two stand out. One was (and I am paraphrasing since I don’t recall the exact wording) by Fox commentator Tucker Carlson who mentioned that the exhibition of voting was indeed, as […]

Dirty Job’s Mike Rowe, Voting, and the Work Ethic

Photo by USFWS/Southeast I recently saw Mike Rowe (Dirty Jobs) on Fox and Friends in a brief segment regarding, I believe, a Facebook post he made on the current election insofar as voting. Though (I hope my memory is correct) he did not offer support for either of the two front-running candidates. He was contacted […]

Republicans Are Losers; Ever Wonder Why?

Photo by JBrazito Republicans cannot understand why they lose. The reason is, they are not republicans. And they keep returning to disingenuous types like the Bushes or the Cheneys or the Gringrichs or the Jaffas-revised-history-theory-types ad neocon ad nauseam for their candidates to boot. They suffered themselves 30 years ago to the hoisting of Ronald […]

Another Bonus Boondoggle, Another Bonus March?

In 1932 veterans gathered in Washington in protest over bonuses owed (but not yet due) earned as a result of service in WWI. The bonuses were actually to come due in 1945, but due to the Great Depression (caused by the government) most of these men were out of work and strained to the limits […]
