I met a woman from Ukraine on Friday. We sat next to one another at the Columbus Symphony. We have a common friend in the Symphony who got our tickets, and placed us next to one another. This is fairly common among friends of the musicians. We end up… Read full post »
I saw an interesting interview with Nicholas Cage recently. Cage was a guest on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon. While the interview was running, and because I am not especially interested… Read full post »
“I Am America(And So Can You)”, he joked, in his 2007 biography, but when you think about it, and explore his life further, he is not kidding. The he we are talking about here is Steven Colbert. CBS has announced today that Colbert will be the replacement for David Let… Read full post »
Today, violence has reared its head again. This time it is a stabbing at Franklin Regional School in Murrysville Pa, which is described as being located 18 miles East of Pittsburgh, Pa. Some other descriptions I heard today were, “nice bedroom community.” One mem… Read full post »
You know, when you hear the term “Howler monkey”, it kind of makes you laugh. I had a sort of absent minded giggle at the term today. It was kind of like, “heh-heh.&n… Read full post »
Here we are, stuck in the middle with better insurance. For some reason, and there may be many, some are saying that the Affordable Care Act is an unmitigated disaster. One frequent complaint that you hear from the loony left is that the ACA is a swindle and a giveaway… Read full post »
What would war with Russia look like?
War with Russia is not a desirable thing. Let’s get that out of the way for those who will undoubtedly claim that trying to understand the potential issue is the same as advocating for it. If one wants… Read full post »
It worked like a charm, didn’t it? Did you notice it? Remember when Cheney and Palin came out about the U.S. using ballistic weapons and nukes against Putin/Russia? A clown show wa… Read full post »

I read a disturbing reference to a thing called “polar bear hunting” recently, here on the pages of Open Salon. The term polar bear hunting was a new one to me, but it refers to… Read full post »
A country road. A tree.
Edward sitting on a low mound, is trying to take off his boot. He pulls at it with both hands, panting. He gives up exhausted, rests, tried again. As before. Enter Vladimir.

What to do, what to do? I have a brick. That’s all I have. I need to come up with as many ways of using this brick, and I will be graded based upon either the number, or the quality of the things that I come up with. What… Read full post »
Does anyone remember Kid-n-Play? You're forgiven if you don't. They were a hip-hop act from the 1980's, not so famous for their House Party series of films. Some may remember Kid's conspicuous flat top fade hairstyle. The coiffe was at its height when the group's popularity wa… Read full post »
“Enos Slaughter says it was an accident...” Yeah, that’s what they always say. It’s funny in a way. That is what Slaughter said after gashing Robinson&rsqu… Read full post »

What did Chris Christie divert, and when did he divert it? Add to that, who cares, and you have what might concern Americans, not currently living in New Jersey, about the George Washington Bridge s… Read full post »

There is a lot of talk recently about whether or not bombing Syria to degrade Syria’s WMD delivery systems is an appropriate step to increase the peace. There is a lot of… Read full post »
What is soul? Depending on your circumstances, you are likely to define that in a number of ways. Soul can mean everything from the disembodied spirit of the human body, to deeply held… Read full post »

I saw Riley Cooper’s apology on television the other day. It was one of the best public apologies I have seen lately, if not ever. It struck me watching it that this guy really knows what he is doing. He did not do it in half measures. He did not say… Read full post »
