Larry Is Dead …… What I Know

Larry was 49 when he died January 13 while in Costa Rica.  

I only found out after the memorial service.  Because he had been a great swimmer, my first thought was that Larry might have drowned while on vacation.  

I had not heard from Larry since he left NY Life to work for AIG-US Life - just before the financial…

Where is Aaron Sorkin when We Need Him?

Inspired by Koshersalaami's post Conservatives: Anti-Family, Anti-Christianity, Anti-Country, my brain has emerged from the fog of depression lite autopilot and I'm posting something for the first time in a week.  When I was a kid I loved literature, movies and TV that depicted heroism that chose to follow the path of what…

Bill O'Reilly's comments regarding Maxine Waters truly sum up this new era we've invited ourselves into.  After all, we elected a man who denigrates the handicapped, people of color, women, religious groups and, minorities in general.  He and his administration have clearly demonstrated that the rules that govern the rest of us - or at least OUGHT to - DO NOT APPLY.  Our democracy, our society that some rush to defend as "class-less"  is showing its true, privileged colors.  Billionaires,…

The Hollywood Science Ninja Team From Corporate Hell!

What do you say we have a little fun with today’s post? It’s been nothing but serious serious serious in the news lately, and politics politics politics. The serious politics bit is why I’ve gone down to blogging one day a week. Everyone, including myself, is so paranoid about what’s going on in Washington, we’re not reading much for pleasure. Even I have the “Oh, Christ, what’s he done now???” mentality. So, what could we do today to lighten the mood? I have an idea.

I’ve been…

gender/ sexuality studies/ zeitgeist massive haul/ pile 2017

hi all. this is a bit triggered by the marines sexting photo sharing scandal.[s] it doesnt seem like its reverberating around the media much, but what a scandal. it has all the elements. its also a very 21st century angle with the social media angle. also, there are new actual laws against "revenge porn". am shocked it is not a bigger deal and wonder if the so-called "controlled mass media" is involved in low-profile suppression of it. one wouldnt want any bad stories about…

The Denial of Crucial Scientific Advancement Part I

Through out history the creations and theories of great inventors have often time been ignored for reasons of pure skepticism or lack of imagination. In many cases history could have been drastically altered had the omen of technological advancement been heeded by those who simply lacked vision. Had the evil…

Illustration of Integer Overflow

I can remember asking what a search engine was in my early days using computers.  A friend explained the concept and said, “There are several out there.  Google is a good one.”  So, I went with Google.  Who could have guessed how big Google would become or how…

Of walls and more walls

by Tommi Avicolli Mecca

Yesterday, I was heading to the post office from my office via my usual short cut. I was in a rush to get there before it closed.

Suddenly, I noticed a shiny new black iron fence in front of me. There was no way around it. I had to walk two blocks out of my way to get to where I wanted to go.

It was obvious why that fence was there.

In recent years, that area has had a lot of homeless encampments. Someone in their infinite cluelessness…

Donald Trump: Deflector-In-Chief

Anyone following the news in recent days should be heartsick and amazed at the public actions of the American president — a man not elected by the people, but by the archaic Electoral College, which must be abolished.

If anything lends credence to the inadequacy of this flawed system one need only point to the…

Lately, I wake in the middle of the night unable to go back to sleep. My insomnia is induced by my memories of a weekend in Weimar Germany, 26 years ago. That weekend was a transformational moment in my life, as it inspired me to interview other Germans…
