Impeachment is the primary, if not the only, constutional defense that we, the people, have against a president who insists on acting like a king.

There are many theories on the definite problem of untimely missing persons in the nation’s wildlife and forest sanctuaries. The average citizen goes out to these parks for the purpose of recreation, relaxation, hunting, or fishing.…Continue

A Bullhorn of Anti-Immigrant Rhetoric, Long Before Trump Started: [National Desk]
Trip Gabriel. New York Times, Late Edition (East Coast); New York,…
"As democracy is perfected, the office of president represents, more and more closely, the inner soul of the people. On some great and glorious day the plain folks of the land will reach their heart's desire at last and the White House will be adorned by a downright moron."
------H. L. Mencken, 1920
The fact that Trump had any chance at all of getting elected is an indictment of the education system and the process of education in this…Continue
1976 Pasadena, Texas. Three of us were renting from my former boss, Valdis, and driving to Channelview in my 69’ LTD five days a week. The band leader was Al Leone, and the drummer was Michael Craig Step. I was the management trainee and they were print boy and gopher on the 2.2 billion dollar chemical lobotomy we were building to drain into the San Jaciento River basin.
Valdis played the accordion, and I had a Marine Band harp that I blew enthusiastically but without a…Continue
There'd been news purporting an Alzheimer causing sap, from an obscure XYZ tree somewhere in South America.
Such report ought rank at the top of the sounding probe within the medical industrial complex, what with the subsequent demise of the person, the heart-broken caregivers, the erstwhile pharma RD staff, the pill-peddlers shoulder to shoulder with Congress-fluke who golf the highnoon away, as victim slowly, passionately expires.…Continue
Trump Cancels Pelosi’s Trip After She Requested State of the Union Delay: The fight over the government shutdown hit a bizarre new low as President Trump decided to cancel House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s planned trip to Afghanistan - just a day after she angered Trump and Republicans by suggesting the…Continue
Yesterday, newl y-minted US Senator Mitt Romney, who warned against Russia while running for President in 2012, and who has occasionally ranted against Donald Trump, after Trump dangled the Secretary of State job in front of him, and then very publicly pulled the rug out from under him,…Continue

Reality, I argue, is what you make it. I’m glad we all get to play. I’m not the judge of anything. I listen, quietly, for many hours to a reality that has been imagined by others. I am grateful. I practice my craft in this mostly built space consciously enjoying the fruits of their labor.
Hot showers, for example. I’m better at what I do because of hot showers. I have worked without them. I would rather not. When I was very young I wanted more than anything to live in…Continue
Dear Mr. President:
On January 3rd, it was my privilege as Speaker to invite you to deliver the State of the Union address on January 29th. The Constitution calls for the President to “from time to time give to the Congress Information of the State of the Union.” During the 19th Century and up until the presidency of Woodrow Wilson, these annual State of the Union messages were delivered to Congress in writing. And since…
Pelosi’s Letter Basically Bans Traditional State of the Union Address: Top Congressional scholar Larry Tribe of Harvard points out that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s letter asking President Trump to delay the State of the Union address is less of a request and more of an order, adding that without Speaker Pelosi’s OK - the President is essentially uninvited. Of course, all that really means is…Continue
An amazing aircraft unveiled in 1959-technical marvel by today's standards.

A rising tide might lift all boats, but a cresting river hardly ever floated a three story motel. I’m hesitant to say never. I checked in yesterday during the most all day deluge...that’s going on all week. The desk clerk assured me that the place has never flooded, but I know he is wrong. The whole city was flooded once...before either of us were born. He put me on the first floor anyway. I can swim.
The work is the work, and despite not doing half as much since November, I…Continue
Those of us who can play an instrument well enough to get paid for it don't play as well as we'd like to play.
However, we play better than we think we do...Otherwise we wouldn't get paid.
And then there's this:
