Physicists currently believe that all rock bands–nay, all human groups composed of four men–can be broken down into elemental particles first identified by study of The Beatles through an electron microscope.
There is the Cute One–Ringo. The Dreamy One–Paul. The Actual Musician–that would be George. And the Verbal One–John. It fell to me, as a charter member of Otis & the Elevator Company who was neither cute, dreamy nor a good guitar player–to be the Verbal…Continue
Republican Senator Rails Against People With Pre-Existing Conditions: During an interview with Meet the Press, Sen. Ron Johnson (R-WI) complained about how Obamacare rules forbid insurance companies from charging more for people with pre-existing conditions, pointing out that people with pre-existing conditions should be considered like “somebody who crashes their car” for insurance purposes. Good grief, sounds like Senator Johnson does most of his…Continue
Joe Kennedy III delivered a powerful rebuke to Paul Ryan who described the House version of Trumpcare as "an act of mercy". Kennedy described it as "an act of malice."
As I heard this I could hear Bonnie Raitt in the background. Unfortunately, her version of "Everybody's Crying Mercy" has had the embedding code disabled, so here…Continue
Have a question about a multi-colored piece of cheese in the fridge? Stomach rumbling from a heaping helping of leftover tuna noodle casserole? Before you head for the bathroom, ask Your Food Freshness Safety Advisor for help!
Dear Food Freshness Safety Advisor:
Yesterday, I made a ham sandwich with two pieces of rye that I’d totally forgot about in the bread basket. They had a little white and green mold on them which I scraped off before I ate it, I’m no…Continue
Writer Masha Gessen, having lived as a journalist in Russia under Putin's rise to power and his reversal of Russia's direction towards becoming a fledgling democracy back to authoritarianism, imho, understands both Trump and the stakes in the U.S. very well. My takeaway from this…Continue

NEW YORK. When President Donald Trump announced today that he would nominate New York Jets owner Woody Johnson to be U.S. ambassador to the United Kingdom, he did so in a way that reflected his scrappy “bridge and tunnel” upbringing in the borough of Queens, where the football team had its home for many years.
“Woody’s gonna be great, just great, okay?” Trump said. “He’s gonna go over there and remind them we had a war and they lost, so they’re losers.”…Continue

Study Finds Sex Doesn’t Actually Sell Products: Researchers analyzed nearly 80 advertising studies published over the past 30 years and found that while people often remember a particularly racy ad, that frequently doesn’t translate into customers actually buying the product that the advertiser is selling. I totally agree. I recently saw an ad featuring a very sexy woman eating a burger and, instead of going right out and ordering a burger, I made an…Continue

In my opinion, Bill Cosby is a rapist... but that's not what this post is about...
This post isn't even about the travesty that passes for the judicial system in this country where thugs with guns and badges can commit cold blooded murder on camera and white "athlete" rapists get a slap on the wrist while the person…Continue
Someone more keen than I will no doubt clear this up.
“When he found out that there may be tapes out there, whether it’s governmental tapes or anything else, I think his story may have changed. I mean, you’ll have to take a look at that, because then he has to tell what actually took place at…Continue
At the impressionable age of 17 I left the rural town where I grew up to attend college in the big city. There I soon learned that movies weren’t just a convenient occasion to feel up a girl and, if she turned you down, to blow into your empty Milk Duds box and make a fart noise. No, they were “films,” a form of entertainment that, when molded by a master director–an auteur–could achieve the status of art.…Continue
Kim Kardashian And Kanye West Hire Surrogate: Kim Kardashian is claiming she has a condition called “placenta accreta,” which makes it dangerous for her to carry another child, so she and Kanye have now hired a surrogate to carry their third child. If I’m correct, I believe “placenta accreta" is Italian for “why should I go through another nine months of carrying a kid when I can just pay someone to do it for me?”…Continue

I shared this video with my older daughter who lives on the West Coast, and used to live where East Asians were in the majority. My daughter related that she once went into a hair salon and the Asian stylist said, “You sit. I make you not so ugly.”
