I'm relieved that my crap detector appears to be calibrated for both the liberal and conservative sides of things. When the morning news reported that Tucker Carlson claimed that White Supremacy is a hoax, I knew this had to be wrong. Alas, he did say exactly what was reported. White Supremacy "is a hoax just...

Hearing canned comments from political and religious leaders after mass shootings rings hollow. Especially tiresome are the generic statements with hints of religious phraseology such as “bind their wounds” and extolling “the power of prayer” (Gov. Abbott).

Why wouldn't a president's advance team have media files for such a standard request, especially if they make demands for graphics at the last minute? Who lost a job over this? Some low level audio visual... Continue Reading →
These days I'm hearing a lot of nonsense and must constantly recalibrate my crap detector. Paul Simon's lyrics keep coming to mind.
This email says the President himself wants the Official 2020 Presidential Founder "FINAL list of American Patriots on his desk" by this very morning that I am typing these words. I received this email because my name doesn't appear on the list. While I greatly appreciate the personal touch, I took great pleasure in knowing... Continue Reading →
