I keep listening and reading stories waiting to see if anyone will have the balls to pick up Scott Adams’ discussions of the rise of Donald Trump. So far, I’ve not heard a peep. I don’t know if Adams’ is right or not—although I suspect he is—but I do think that he is the only […]
Living in North Royalton, Ohio, has many pluses. We have a Metro Park in my back yard. We have a mini-pack of dogs who romp and play in our insanely large front yard and who are always so happy to see me when I come home. We can sit on our back deck and watch […]
Scott Adams make the case that Donald Trump is a scholarly descendant of Milton Hyland Erickson, a man that Scott calls the first American-born wizard. He also suggests that Hillary Rodham Clinton is also somewhere on the Erickson family tree. Because the two presidential candidates are intellectual siblings, Adams sees the potential for the 2016 […]

A week ago Monday I wrote, in POLICE PWN LA TIMES, GET TED RALL FIRED… about The Los Angeles Times taking a dupe of a faked, 12-year-old audio tape as grounds to fire cartoonist Ted Rall. Rall has not taken the insult lightly. Sam Thielman, writing in Fired Los Angeles Times cartoonist hits back at […]
Previously and the follow up, Alice is fine.
[Update at 0858 on 14 August: Chromosome answered my question. The circle is part of the WMCSM’s .5 child (note the plate to WMCSD’s left.) which makes my use of red here a bit prescient (and icky).] Usually I have no problem with Derf’s art, but I’ve been staring at White Middle Class Suburban Daughter’s […]
[Update at 0725 on 14 August: Mano Singham comes at Mx. Trump from a different angle in Thinking the unthinkable.] From Will Rogers to Lenny Bruce to George Carlin to Jon Stewart, American comics (and others) seem to better understand and articulate the nuances of American politics than all the pundits. Add Scott Adams to […]

Newspaper owners, editors and assorted flunkies are running scared. They’re drowning in a rising tide of new media that has rendered them, at best, marginally valuable, and no step seems to extreme to keep their heads above the surface long enough to retire and run.

Over the years of watching interviews on The Daily Show, I’ve wondered why any sane person would agree to be interviewed by a comedian with a camera crew. Jessica Williams demonstrates that I assumed way too much. No sane person would agree to be interviewed by a comedian, but plenty of other people have and […]
The Daily Show’s final episode with Jon Stewart was mostly, and rightly, Stewart saying goodbye to all the people who made his more than 16 years on Comedy Central an institution. You know a lot of people in that much time and, I think, Jon squeezed in most of them in his 49 minutes and […]

That is what life is to the sociopaths, a vast, nearly exclusive game designed to give meaning and worth to people whose lives are meaningless without the pile of tokens. Writing in […]
