What If?

(A reprint of years ago, which seems good today.)

There was no bad news on tv, radio, or online today?

Suppose we turned on the morning news and were greeted with our favorite morning anchor.

“Good morning, the entire world was at peace last night.  Not one war happened.  There were no shots fired.  There were no bombs blowing up anything.  There were no abandoned, abused or kidnapped children.  There are no violent deaths to report.  The…

July 6 2015 A.D. - Cosmic Reflections of this past 239th "Independence Day"!

How ‘bout that Holiday (rimshot!)!

Why the signing matters: only rock-solid stone would be a stronger (known) medium for this purpose than mere paper.

By the affixing of one's signature, the mere paper signifies guarantee in perpetuity of…

"The Ballad of the SHAWSHANK CONNECTION" or... Prisoner of Luv

1977: Kevin and Richard, Zeke and the Crew, the Saudi Waiter and Star Wars

Kevin and Richard… - Kevin Crowley joined the staff because, despite the good money he made as a mud logger, he’d quickly grown weary of life off shore and on the road in the oil patch.  One Monday night we were drinking and playing darts at Jimmy’s Pub when he asked me how long it would take him to learn…

And Now, A Word From Our Sponsors

Hi folks,

I'm sorry I've been noticeably (or may not so noticeably) absent, but it's been crazy in my life lately.  I started to re-post "The Crimson Jesus Chronicles" here, but I didn't get too far before I had to go take care of other stuff.

Anyway, I've decided that instead of spending my free time re-posting all of those pieces, I would simply put up the last chapter that appeared on Open Salon and then, maybe a couple of days later, post the next installment.  Then I'd…

Like a Monkey on a Rock~

I promised myself I wouldn't do it. No way, no how. But as the days become shorter and the departure of David Letterman from America's idiot box becomes closer and closer, I can't help myself. I am already feeling the loss of a man I have watched on TV for over 30 years. Let me say before I get too far…

My recent absence due to hospitalization bleh, bleh, bleh!

Okay this is where I've been the last few weeks and  more or less what I've been up to and through for that matter.Image result for hospitalization   About a month ago I began feeling listless, had no appetite, and was sleeping about 2 hours of every day.

I got very weak after a couple of weeks of this and you have to understand that my daily routine includes jacking myself into the air with a sling and chain hoist upon arising and after pulling myself down the hall via a monorail on the ceiling, dropping…

Daredevil Triumphant

The Man Without Fear, otherwise known as the comic book superhero Daredevil, seems to finally be earning some respect. The new Netflix series has generated mostly good reviews and, based on the first few episodes I've seen, has done justice (pun intended) to the blind attorney by day / masked…
