Is Bannon inadvertently telling Democrats and Independent Progressives how to win and what to win on going forward?
Is there anything more square than step dancing? I love it, but it is definitely the nerdiest, squarest art form, unless you consider square dancing! Yep, square dancing is even cornier than step dancing.
So how did white people get from step dancing and square dancing (which are our native arts) to something like…Continue

Hospice came and said, “She’s in transition.”
And she was, she slipped away today.
Such a lovely way to say, “She’s dying;”
The Final Journey rather than The End.
A week ago today we sat together,
Talking of the past and her short future,
It wasn’t resignation. She seemed at peace,
Remembering fondly a life well lived.
She was French, Catholic, and from Vermont.
She was the the older sister that became the…Continue
I truly did have my heart set on composing a little cameo of my dear friend Trapper Jack, something with some charm about it, something that his children could read over, nod at, and smile on . . . if he had any children. My last…Continue
As I have informed some of you previously, this is one of the bonfires that I regularly set in aid of navigation for jet airliner pilots 35,000 feet above me flying between Denver International Airport and O'Hare. I provide this…Continue
Scientists Close to Cloning a Woolly Mammoth: Scientists say gene editing technology like CRISPR may soon open up a shortcut to resurrecting the woolly mammoth, but some argue doing so could be both risky and unethical.
My feeling is why…Continue

CAMBRIDGE, Massachusetts. Bob Zukoff, producer of the weekly radio show “The Creative Mind”, fidgets nervously as Amy Weber, a hammer dulcimer player and poetess who is one of tonight’s guests, strolls into the studios of WGBH, the local National Public Radio outlet. “Looks like trouble,” he says.…Continue

For some years, David Brooks has self-identified as the coherent conservative, as opposed to the lunatic fringe. Since the ascendancy of Kim Jong-Don, he's become a tad more adamant in that regard. It, therefore, should come as no surprise that his column today carries on in such a manner.
What is refreshing is that he's offering up wisdom that sounds rather like he's been…Continue
A previous missive bemoaned the death of the financial quant, which doesn't exactly break my heart. But we now have reporting that Kim Jong-Don has set out to kill off the bio-stat (or pharma quant). This is far more serious. If only because it's an assault on science. Clinical trials are important science, not FDA obstruction. But the Randians only see the real world through her kaleidescope glasses.…Continue
Four major sports. Seventeen years. Ten championships. Face it; after the Patriots won the Super Bowl Sunday night, Boston is Title Town USA. It’s never been done before, not even in New York, where they have two of every pro sports team to our one.
How do we do it, you may ask if you’re sitting in some loser burg like New York or Los Angeles or Miami, all of which dwarf Boston in size, but which produce championships about as often a Halley’s Comet…Continue
Are conservatives trying to prevent this Chase Bank vision of the future from coming to fruition?:

Even though Ivanka Trump and hubbie Jared Kushner apparently convinced Daddy Dearest not to overturn the pro-LGBTQ executive order that was enacted by former president Barack Obama in 2014, I do not stand with Ivanka and Jared. I stand with them.
Even though in his statement, he, whom I call Not My President, said that he was “determined to protect the rights of all Americans, including the LGBTQ community,” I do not stand with him. I stand with…Continue

That Tea Party Republicans are dumbass troglodytes is abundantly clear, but this one takes the cake:
So Bernie and the Dems came on strong with payback:…Continue
