Dallas, naturally, is too far south for the famed Northern Lights so we have to make do with making our own: The Dallas Aurora Art Show. Apparently it's been going on since 2010 but this year's was the first I'd heard of it. (Living hand/…

the nursing home and many homes are gone now.
It's funny. Had I stored a mountain of explosive fertilizer in my back yard and it caught on fire and exploded killing both my neighbors and firemen who/…
Putting aside the sheer outrage of stagnating wages, I ask you: what's wrong with this graph? Were I to ask Obama and his supporters the answer is obvious: we need to spend more money on healthcare. Why? Because that's the only "realistic" answer. If only someone would tell reality that!/…
Another day of boring data at NSA headquarters. Even tracking your wife and girlfriend can get old after a while. Soon, one starts to wonder how relevant one actually is. But then again, relevancy is in the eye of the beholder.
"Find me five people and shoot them!"
Sometimes it pays to be a blogger at Open Salon. After all, who else could browbeat their way in to interview the perpetrators of a sensational murder reported around the world? Naturally there was resistance at first, but after flashing/…
Martin Luther King
On my Mount Rushmore of 20th century beacons of light stand Gandhi, Kennedy, MLK and Lennon (in order of assassination). Lights such as they will not return. We give a lot of lip/…
There's no place to sleep on the moon - and I don't just mean because of the perpetual bombardment of meteorites from space. You'd think with all this room and huge craters there'd be some spot safe and/…
First, I see this little gem of a poll taken in Louisiana:
Once, a long time ago I came staggering out of the desert, grateful just to be alive. No one had ever crossed the desert before to find out who or what was on the other side. I was a fool to go so far but once in I was committed/…
The [moronic] ancient Israelites said to Samuel, "Now appoint a king to lead us, such as all the other [moronic] nations have."
The Lord replied, "Warn [the ingrates] solemnly and let them know what the king who will [fuck them] over will do."
This is what the king who will reign/…
The killer awoke before dawn. He put his panties on. His eyeliner was made perfect, his bra adjusted for leering effect. The miniskirt squeezed on and the pumps' straps firmly buckled. He stared into the makeup mirror dressed to kill. The house dark save for this one lone light.

Deep in the bland, touristy heart of Dallas suburb Arlington, Texas lies a place of hideous beings bent on ruining life as we know it. But the good people of Arlington won't stand for these loathsome creatures freely roaming our streets. Time to call out/…
Her name was Julie Steel. She's the kind of person you never see at a shelter. We all have our trials and tribulations marked for us in the journey/hell that is life but for some homelessness is right out of the question, never fathomed for even a moment. The building/…
so that we might blow thy enemy to bits."
It's getting to the point where the world is one giant Monty Python sketch. Only, the more absurd we become the more obsessed we are with proving we are not. Like I/…
"Thank tha Lord! Thank God Almighty! Yes!"
That my first reaction we I first hears that one lone voice speakin' out. Was like a thunderbolt of light! White folks don' know what it like when you the only one and it feel like ever' last one of 'em pushin' your/…
My introduction to Michelangelo Merisi da Caravaggio (1571-1610) began at the celebrated world class Fort Worth small museum The Kimbell. There resides her most prized possession of her prized collection: Caravaggio's Cardsharps. I'm no analyst who can verbalize the whys and wherefores of an/…
That was Fremont, fourteen years ago. His voice was gruff and scratchy like from a three day cold. The walls rising up around him were invisible but just as concrete as a castle. There was a note of finality, of/…
It bothered me the first time I saw it sitting on top of my dinette set. I didn't remember placing that bottle there and I wasn't sure what it was but I didn't have time to check it right then and there. "I'll get to it later" - which is/…
Death faces me in every direction. I can choose livin' or I can choose dyin' or I can choose nothin', but death it'll be for me. What an idiot. I thought I could beat them. I thought I could fly right outta these chains. But they got the/…
Realizing the importance of a royal birth and the even greater importance of naming said birth, orders have come down from on high to democratize the christening of the royal baby. For the first time ever, mere commoners will have a say in naming an heir of/…
Seeing an article titled "Tony Blair warned he will be criticised in Iraq report" I once again hung my head as I realized at least Europe retains some sense of outrage over the vast litany of 21st century crimes that have been/…
Stuttering Sam was a drunk. He died a long time ago but it was only last week he pulled the trigger. (He lost his dog) You can only have your guts ripped out and your heart broken so many times. The title was Sam's claim to fame -/…
