Spencer Has Moved

Posted on June 10, 2019 at 12:30pm 10 Comments

I had the distinct pleasure of meeting Spencer Bohren through another musician friend. She tours the US and Europe and knew him well. We spent an afternoon together shortly after the flooding of New Orleans.

He was an historian and story teller. His "roots" knowledge was extensive and well expressed in his performances.…

Time To Go

Posted on May 27, 2019 at 9:00am 6 Comments

Two years ago today I was standing on my front porch about to head out for groceries.

I could see the train had stopped north and east about two blocks away. It always did, of course. This time however, it did not take off for the next stop.

I knew something was happening and told my wife that I suspected something was wrong. It was more than just wrong. It was a racially motivated double murder.

Two blocks north and to the west of the front porch was a bicycle "chop…

Executive Privilege : Mueller's Future

Posted on May 8, 2019 at 7:59am 5 Comments

Today we wake up to see what we suspected.

The flimflam man, naked emperor that he is, has shown that at least for one decade he managed to lose an average of nearly $400,000 per day.

OPM of course, but nonetheless, gone for good.

It’s over, right?

Why be concerned? He’s a fraud. We’ve known that all along.

But Mueller knows exactly what it then became.

It’s because it led him into becoming the laundry man for the Rooskies. Now I’m not going to pretend I know…

Abput your concerns about the protection of your identity:

Your real name, address and other particluars are not published. They are in a secured dateabase. We both know how valueless these security systems are. If someone wants to get in, they are going to get in. 

That said, we are operating with SSL encryption and a secured database and the editors are the only people who have access to that data. We need that data so that if you wish to get paid, we can legally pay you and if you don't wish to get paid, we need a signed statement from you waiving payment and we have to be able to track that statement back to your screen name....but we are not about to share any of our information with anyone. It's coin of the realm as far as I am concerned. How do you buy money with money? 

J don't know anything about your situation, but I stopped hiding some years ago when I realized that no one cared anymore what I did or didn't do. 

I am pushing you because I want to keep this community together and to see it grown. Why not? I have put mechanisms in place that will keep this thing running in perpetuity whether I am here or not because, for one thing, I am going to use this space to preserve my collected poetry since I don't think anyone is ever going to pay me for a 1,000 book of poems from an unknown poet. 

Poets who expect to make a living as poets (unless you are Bob Dylan, and half a hundred other super poets) are neither poets nor making a living. 

Come on. It will be more fun with you than without you.

You can share that link with anyone you might want to invite to BindleSnitch.

You didn't get an invite because you aren't signed up yet. You can use this link to sign up.

https://bindlesnitch.com/19481012-2/

It takes around two minutes to do it this way. 

Once you are signed up, I can send you an invitation to the group.

It sounds good though, heavier or not, to me.  Any stories about roughing it touch my spirit.  Keep me ...  um ... grounded!  Tx.
