Crying Nazi Threatens About Army of Fanatics Willing to Die: After white supremacist James Fields was convicted of the first-degree murder of counter-protestor Heather Heyer during the Charlottesville alt-right rally, “Crying Nazi” Christopher Cantwell claimed Fields is innocent and warned that there is an “army of fanatics willing to die” over this matter. Which may…Continue
I’m writing this with battery power on my laptop. Sometime yesterday about noon it began to snow. And then we began to get rain. And then it stopped. By 1:40 this morning we had no power. So, I’m sitting in a dark house, gas logs going, no internet and an iPad that is about out of battery power.
We are bored, but we had frozen soup and chili for just such an occasion, and I had kale soup for lunch. It’s not as bad as it sounds. There are other veggies and…Continue
Lorelei Lorelei there upon the rocky shoreline
I can hear your voice over the waves of brine…
The MIC got us marching in kindergarten, which was held in the basement of the Puritan’s church annex, underneath the multi purpose theatre that was built bomb proof connected to the 18th century church. Duck and cover!
I played Joseph that year in the Episcopal Xmas pagent, my first public performance outside of my supporting roles as baby boom spawn in our MIC managed family...which is what brought home the bacon. My parents were set up to dog raise little…Continue
They say when we die that love lives on and on
Like the perpetual ghost of dawn
Memories that become preyed upon
A fool like I, a chessboard pawn,
The phantom of a translucent…Continue

When you pulled your life from mine
Something was left trailing from behind
Like a ghostly shadow I could never find
Like a phantom mirror with an image so unkind,
Trying so hard just to…Continue

The Way Christmas Once Was - A True Holiday Story: I don't often post personal items, but here's a photograph of me and my first wife Gethelda Jane from a Christmas way back when. As you may have guessed from the picture - Gethelda Jane was in a marching band. It…Continue
I'm sure our beloved President would rate me a “low-energy” guy. Well, to that I can only say I'd rather be low-energy than a hebephrenic like…Continue
I do not stand anywhere today speech making. I was just on my hands and knees washing the fake wood plastic floor of my premanufactured home far from the Sandy soaked estuary where I would gladly be winding down what has been, if nothing else, a long, strange trip.
Every moment we make choices, I made mine, or so I had thought for the longest time, with far too little oversight, mentoring or parenting. I had skimmed Adam Smith, and replaced…Continue
PETA Launches Campaign to End Anti-Animal Language: The animal's rights group is being heavily criticized for comparing "anti-animal" idioms to racism, homophobia, and other discriminatory language. And don’t I know it! I mean, my cat’s reported me to PETA numerous times for using anti-animal language around the house with…Continue

As some of you here know all too well, my comments tend to be a bit lengthy. Occasionally, they reach an alarming length, a length warranting a post of its own. Such is the case with my comment on the latest post by Robert B. James, a…
Interviews for Fear were conducted under the journalist ground rule of “deep background.”... “When I have attributed exact quotations, thoughts or conclusions to the participants, that information comes from the person, a colleague…Continue
I’m not writing about the Trumpers, or even the Trumps. God bless them for not being bright enough to be fascists, every one. White elites walled themselves off from the world long before their cast offs and religious nuts blew here from a broken Europe.
What failed there has never succeeded here, ever. After the kooks, fanatics and greedy raped and pillaged a disease ravaged continent they gained enough steam run their own show, but the economic model…Continue
