Kim Jong Un Had Half Brother Killed With Nerve Agent: Malaysian police say the chemical substance used to kill Kim Jong Un’s half brother Kim Jong Nam last week, was a banned nerve agent called VX, which is listed as a weapon of mass destruction by the United Nations. Why the nerve of someone killing their own half brother with nerve gas. I have half a mind to tell him so too. Instead of killing him, couldn’t he have just had him beaten up and left him…Continue

this is what i love about life and i'm not always a big fan. i was feeling sorry for myself that i hadn't been invited to an Oscar Party. as i've said ad nauseum, i was a screenwriter back in the day and as an Agoraphobic person -- hmm, no let's say a Recovering AG person -- i'm a huge tv and film addict. so these award shows are HUGE for me. And this one is the Be All and End All, of course. Not to mention that I also Love Fashion. And I’ve felt this way since I can remember.
... since the administration of Nightmare "45" has accused the mainstream press, The New York Times, The Hill, Politico, BuzzFeed, the Daily Mail, BBC, the Los Angeles Times and the New York Daily News of being "enemies of the people" and chosen to exclude them from the daily White…Continue
I truly did have my heart set on composing a little cameo of my dear friend Trapper Jack, something with some charm about it, something that his children could read over, nod at, and smile on . . . if he had any children. My last…Continue
I have to laugh when Trumpsters insist that because Donald Trump is a businessman, he can "fix" America and "make America great again." These predominantly White working-class voters and the few dark others who voted for…Continue
Hospice came and said, “She’s in transition.”
And she was, she slipped away today.
Such a lovely way to say, “She’s dying;”
The Final Journey rather than The End.
A week ago today we sat together,
Talking of the past and her short future,
It wasn’t resignation. She seemed at peace,
Remembering fondly a life well lived.
She was French, Catholic, and from Vermont.
She was the the older sister that became the…Continue
Is there anything more square than step dancing? I love it, but it is definitely the nerdiest, squarest art form, unless you consider square dancing! Yep, square dancing is even cornier than step dancing.
So how did white people get from step dancing and square dancing (which are our native arts) to something like…Continue

Is Bannon inadvertently telling Democrats and Independent Progressives how to win and what to win on going forward?
Lucy, having grown up as a human child, was like a changeling, her essential chimpanzeeness overlaid by the various human behaviours she had acquired over the years. I watched, amazed, as she opened the refrigerator and various cupboards, found bottles and a glass, then poured herself a gin and tonic. She took the drink to the TV, turned the set on, flipped from one channel to another then, as though in disgust, turned it off again. She selected a glossy magazine from the table and,…Continue

New iPhones to Map Faces for Authentication and 3-D: Apple is rumored be working on a controversial new camera designed to map your face in 3-D for the purpose of facial recognition. Yea - and good luck with that! Hell, as it is, Siri suddenly turns into Helen Keller almost every time I ask it something. And what’s with the 3-D pics anyway? Do they think our current, regular selfies aren’t narcissistic enough?…Continue

This photograph was taken sometime around the turn of the last century in a town called Lipshitz (pronounced "Leapsheets") in what is now Belarus but was then Russia, near Minsk. At least that's where they lived - I don't know if they travelled for the photograph.
I don't know her name,…

OK, so here's the deal: the drug industry (legal ones, that is) is near the top of the list of noxious parasites on the economy. In recent days, one member of that clan, Gilead, has been getting static from the investor class about its less than stellar financial performance. Gilead is a major player in HIV. It was also the lead participant in HepC; the source of the ~$84,000 "cure", several of them.
That marketing started a few years ago, but revenue has waned some in the last year…Continue
