Welcome, Steven Bridenbaugh!

Profile Information

Bio
As a child, I decided that I would become a nuclear physicist. I dreamed that the prettiest girl in third grade was my secretary, as we rode around in a spaceship. I read all the Hardy Boys mysteries. About that time, my parents started saying that I talked too much. I was sent to a prep school on the East Coast. For me, it was a lonely and sometimes cruel place. It didn't bother me that often. As Barney has said, "Our Imagination is a very good place to be!" In 1985, I remodeled a kitchen, and used the money to buy a bicycle. I trekked to Sun Valley, Idaho, and became a ski bum. I now am somewhat arthritic, and I read a lot of theology books. My soul is decidedly triangular.

On the Town with Ryan

It was my idea, actually. I’ve been working in Paul’s office for three years now. I met him at the health club-- I recognized him, and we spent time working out together. When we learned that we finally had enough votes to repeal and replace, I suggested we have…

Donald.Trump.Is.Dead

Posted on March 26, 2017 at 12:01pm 0 Comments

I’m sitting on a bench, just off the rough of hole number 6, at Trump’s golf course. The secret service just hauled away the body. They told me to clean up the mess on the ground, but I don’t think I will. I don’t want to be infected with the same worm that consumed him. There’s probably eggs in that pile of poop. I’m still trying to process the events of the last hour. Actually, all the things that have happened, ever since I knew the Donald. He was one of the…

Clown Talk on Early Childhood Education

Posted on March 16, 2017 at 11:17pm 0 Comments

After listening to Mick Mulvaney's talk about Meals on Wheels and programs for Early Childhood Education, I am foaming at the mouth. Here is one of my bumbling rambles, this one about the fact that the public funds that are invested in the early childhood years pay off more than they do for any other age group.

42. The answer to life, the universe, and everything, is: 42. I've thought this over very thoroughly. Well, you didn't ask me 42 what? OK, retrieving from memory banks... this won't take 5,000 years... I'm afraid you might be disappointed. I am giving you the answer to the…

Negotiating... With Team Trump

Posted on November 17, 2016 at 12:06am 2 Comments

I was confounded, confused, even delirious in my disappointment with the election of Donald Trump. I couldn’t imagine a more implacable foe to all the ideals that I have carefully nurtured, since my initial enthusiasm about the world, back in the Sixties. I had a resounding headache, which so plagued me that night that I went out into the street, to visit an old Mom and Pop grocery store that continues to survive in my neighborhood. I wanted to see if they still stocked those headache…

BORIS FOR PREZ!

--Note. Jonathan Wolfman is a character in this play, but in this play, he is a completely fictional character. I know very little about Mr. Wolfman, other than that he has a radio show. 

SCENE: In the corner of a city apartment, Jonathan Wolfman sits at a computer desk, which serves as his recording studio and online radio station. Sitting next to him is a striking gentleman, with a head of snow white hair and wearing a well-tailored suit, who sips tea…

The Merlin of Modesto

Posted on September 14, 2016 at 9:30am 2 Comments

 

In one of my earliest memories, I am five years old, and fireflies are gracefully circling over a meadow near a lush forest. I know it was in the Eastern United States, a much greener place than this. Certainly not Modesto. And I can remember making circling lines on lined paper, trying to convince another child that I could write like grownups do. These memories are more abstract than visual to me now. The far past is dim, but somehow all the forgotten fantasy, the little…

Feeling depressed, dealing with it, and why Planet Fitness it right for me

I. Feeling depressed, and dealing with it

This morning I woke up early, and got out of bed at around 5:30. This would seem to be a good thing, but in my case it is not because my work schedule has recently changed. After a year of working a full-time schedule of midnight and early morning shifts, I have been given a straight shift, which means I am to work the same hours every day. Good news! Unfortunately, the best time for me to be at work is the afternoon, preferably after two…
