"BLDM might be easier.  Where else I blog I also hear that Christians are somehow in peril and being denied their rights. They don’t know in the US what being denied their rights looks like. China, sure, but not here. "

"The first form will be sort of like Alexa. However, that will soon expand to all sorts of stuff in your daily life, probably including some sort of electronic function/interaction with clothing. And walls."

"I’m realizing,  inspired by Maui, that perhaps BLDM (Black Lives Don’t Matter) is the wrong name for the organization. After they fight with Royal Dutch Airlines for the copyright, it will be KLM (Klan Lives Matter)."

Profile Information

Bio
Male, Jewish, in my early sixties, married with kids (well, at this point I guess that should be "kid"). Thanks to Lezlie for avatar artwork - sort of a translation of my screen name. "Salaam" is peace in Arabic, hence the peace sign. (No, my name doesn't mean "hunk of meat" and yes, the pun is intentional.)

A question no boomer should ever have to hear

i was visiting North Carolina a few weeks ago and Rich, my old bandleader, handed me a CD. I'm on one cut. Just before I moved north, he befriended an older musician by the name of Juma Sultan, a percussionist. I never got to play with him though the rest of the band did. Recently they put together a CD with him on it. One song they wanted to do was the old Eric Burdon song Spill The Wine, which my old band has put into its rotation on occasion. On a previous visit, Rich asked me to lay down…

Monopostal Monday: The biggest difference between liberals and conservatives

I'm on my way home from a business meeting in Anaheim, on a three hour layover in Newark heading for Syracuse. My daughter wanted me to bring her home some candy, so I started looking at retail. I've been here for a couple of hours, this place is wide awake with a lot of open businesses at five in the morning. 

So I looked at this shop called "America"

and found…

The day before yesterday, there were a couple of demonstrations at the Mall in Washington, DC.  One was the March for Life, an anti-abortion demonstration; the other was a much smaller Indigenous Peoples’ Day march. As the Indigenous Peoples’ Day march wound down, an Omaha (the tribe, not the city) tribal elder by the name of Nathan Phillips was playing a drum and leading a chant for a small group.  A group of Catholic high school students from Covington, KY, there for the March for Life,…
