Six Sentences: Boomers, in this New Moment



Perhaps the young ones will succeed, not on guns alone but on a range of critical social justice issues. I do hope so.

David Cay Johnston declares in It's Even Worst Than You Think (2018) that "there is no such thing as a 'free market,' mush as that term of art in economics is loosely bandied about all the time by politicians and journalists.  And no free market…

A Brother From Another Mother

We all now know, beyond doubt that Dear Leader is an illiterate moron. With the brain of chicken, as Connie used to say when she did something silly. Orange Julius Caesar does nothing else. So, today brings us some stark contrast.

"How did you end up here, Marilynne? What happened? Was it libraries?"

In 2015, President Obama sought out the…

The Power of Youth

Kosh has accused, actually pointed out accurately, that much of what I put down to words is mainly autobiographical, and, I admit I will not stoop often to citing sources anymore online, google it, better yet duckduck it.

What this old body with a brain that still feels the same anger as it did when they tried to draft me, or when Shrub the Lesser lied us into a war that has killed millions and destroyed decades of work in the Cradle of Civilization, can tell you is there is only ONE…

After Years of Protest and Street Violence, Nixon 'Surrenders' Right to Vote to Young People Between 18 and 20

That’s right!  'Tricky Dick', 'Richard, 'Law & Order', Nixon certified the 26th Amendment, in a ceremony reminiscent of the signing of a peace treaty following an armed conflict between nations, 3 years after the kids took it to the streets in Chicago, Detroit, and LA... Virtually all over the country...…

Flu and some good things after that

About 12 days ago, I started feeling like I was coming down with something, and I did. What began as me feeling uncharacteristically cranky, out-of-sorts and inordinately tired blew up into the worst chest cold I can remember. I think now that it might have been the flu (again) even though I had it last year and got a flu shot this past October. 

From what I've been reading on it, this season's flu shot is only about 25% effective, but can mitigate the worst of it.

Still, it's…

Maybe we were wrong

There is absolutely no question that the country and the world would be better off right now if Hillary Clinton had been elected, but would the country be better off five or ten years from now? Was Susan Sarandon right when she said that Trump would galvanize the country such that we’d see more change and so we were better off with him than with Hillary? 

The real question is how long-lasting Trump’s damage is likely to be. How quickly can we reverse what Congress is doing? What will…

Trump EPA Chief Has Unusual Waiver to Fly in First Class

Trump EPA Chief Has Unusual Waiver to Fly in First Class:  The Environmental Protection Agency is refusing to release the written waiver that allows Administrator Scott Pruitt to fly regularly in first or business class for security reasons - a practice that sets him apart both from his predecessors and other current Cabinet members.  I get it - I mean, if you’re the head of an agency promoting a clean environment, the last thing you wanna do is be…

A Sunset Soliloquy

As I was collecting the trash tonight I noticed some marks in the grass in the backyard so I went out to investigate, keeping in mind last year's vole situation. It has been a lot this weekend, I'm feeling a bit at the end of my tether with trying to do up the resume' and beginning to straighten up my shelves, so I took a bit of grounding advice and sat on my old garden bench for a few minutes. This is what I saw.…
