Is there a connection between the apparent murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi, and the sudden, unannounced but timely, resignation of Nikki Haley as American Ambassador to the UN?…Continue
I don’t get home much anymore. I’m on the road...mostly elsewhere trying to make sense of my own past and at the same time do the field work that historians do far too little of, not that I blame them much. I’m a historian like Scanner was a writer...a late bloomer. I’m not a writer, but I try. I don’t do fiction.
I found OS while in grad school in my fifties, as I was learning how to write history. I try to write some history every day after doing the field work. Now in…Continue

There weren’t a lot of choices of motel rooms that would take pets. This one would take pets and seemed safe. I left the clean, but somewhat rundown old motel room and headed toward the dark shadow at the end of the back row of rooms where I had been told there was an ice machine. To my left a voice told me, “It’s…Continue

This song, by Lynzy Lab Stewart is parody... but dog know the "girl" parts are true.
I want all of you "guys" to listen to those parts and then put yourself in a woman's shoes for just a couple of minutes while you think what it would be like to live like that EVER FUCKING DAY OF YOUR LIFE! Once you do, get back to me and explain where all of that anger inside of you is coming from,…Continue
I saw this meme and I thought it perfectly exemplified just how racist, sexist and white male privileged our country has become.
