Off my back deck last night

I was eating dinner with my back to the glass door to the deck when my daughter’s boyfriend commented on the sunset. He was right, so I went outside to take some shots with my phone. I took three. I don’t know which I like best. The first is obviously best of the sunset itself.…

"Half-Crazy, "Not Rich' and 'Half-Asian' Story of PTSD felt by Japanese-American Woman

If you are hoping to read a juicy, mouth-watering assault on the blockbuster movie "Crazy, Rich Asians" . . . you have come to the wrong place. 

Rather . . . in my 'Half-Asian' Journalist-humble-half-breed-Americanized opinion . . . the Film is not even worthy of any deep-spirited words I may choose to write.

Instead, I shall offer anyone who cares to read it-- a thoughtful and Deep essay about "what it really feels…

Operation Finale

Ben Kingsley is Adolf Eichmann....

More psycho-drama than action thriller, based on historical fact.

To fully appreciate the the film, you should know a bit of history...

Recalling Joseph Heller, A "Catch-22" Insight for Our Era

"IT WAS MIRACULOUS.

IT WAS ALMOST NO TRICK AT ALL, HE SAW, TO TURN VICE INTO VIRTUE AND SLANDER INTO TRUTH, IMPOTENCE INTO ABSTINENCE, ARROGANCE INTO HUMILITY, PLUNDER INTO PHILANTHROPY, THIEVERY INTO HONOR, BLASPHEMY INTO WISDOM, BRUTALITY INTO PATRIOTISM, AND SADISM INTO JUSTICE.

ANYBODY COULD DO IT; IT REQUIRED NO BRAINS AT ALL.…

Bigotry

Mad at some?

Tell us how those not affiliated with those people are just as culpable. Make up stuff and claim it is true.

Add invective at each opportunity. 

This is the way it rolls from the White House down to the commoners.

Don't worry about being open minded anymore.

Nobody is listening.

Responses will be closely monitored for ingratiating agreement.

Image result for Pope Stand by your man

I remember reading comments here, from some people, that they both "liked" what Pope Francis has said and that they had "high hopes" for him.  There also have been several "kudos" regarding his stances on gay and women's rights.

I, obviously, made none of them because, to me, it is clear that he goes "full Trump"…

The Oracle Pooped

Yes, the Oracles pooped in FL a couple of days ago, which means there's been time for the pundits (and pollsters?) to do the usual post mortem to explain how they missed Gillum. It appears to be along the same line as 2016/Trump: ineffective stratification. Long time reader knows that one of the mantra of this quant is 'stratification is critical and it is haaahhd'. Getting to the moon was easier.

Given the typical size of such samples, ~1000, accuracy depends of either of two…

I'm a proud Democratic Socialist.  I'm not at all ashamed nor embarrassed by that label.  In fact, I am a proud, loud and unbowed member of The Democratic Socialists of America.  (...and, yes...  you can vote Green and be a Democratic Socialist, as well.  Just say'in.)

The Patriots From The Tea Party, Lady Macbeth and Jesus Walk Into A Bar...

Well...  actually they must have been members of the bar...  because they were all invoked during hearings of the 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals... who ruled last week that feeding the homeless, in spite of numerous city and state ordinances against it, is an “expressive conduct protected by the First Amendment.”

"I Have A Dream..."

Fifty-five years ago today, Dr. Martin Luther King gave the most moving speech in history.  

It's worth watching a few more times because his dream is as far from being fulfilled as it was back in 1963.
