Tyre Nichols

By now, the whole world has seen the disgusting video of the beating, er murder, of another innocent black man at the hands of a lynch mob disguised as police officers in the city of Memphis, TN. Man’s inhumanity to man. Not black v. white; no, black on black. Go figure. Like black men don’tContinue reading “Tyre Nichols”

Better Late?

If you call me up and don’t start speaking within the first five seconds, my ass is gonna hang up on your ass and I will block your number for all-time. Pet peeve? Probably more like a foible. Although I am actually avoiding the Old Man Syndrome where everything irritates you, and that is probablyContinue reading “Better Late?”

One More Reason..

I don’t live in Alaska—I do not want to die of a polar bear attack. Unfortunately, a mother and her one-year old baby had to pay the price for man’s encroachment on polar bears, eliminating fruitful lands and driving the bears to find food wherever they can find it. They found this particular bear andContinue reading “One More Reason..”

Oh Me of Little Faith

I woke up late and missed the first five minutes of the Derby—Manchester United hosting our rivals Manchester City. The Reds actually started out quite smoothly, and, although I was hoping for a loss, albeit a CLOSE loss to the powder blues, I just have seen enough games of City to see firsthand the unrivalledContinue reading “Oh Me of Little Faith”


You asked for it, you got it. Amber McLaughlin. In an episode right out of Criminal Minds, a funeral home owner was making a tidy profit by dismembering corpses and selling off their body parts. In another episode right out of Criminal Minds, a woman is killed when a rogue wave hit a cruise ship.Continue reading “Equality”

Careful What You Ask For

All I have heard now for months on end, as if it is some sort of magic cure for everything, is wait until the Republicans win the House, then you’ll see… See what? You can’t even decide on who the next Speaker of the House will be. I gotta be honest with you. Unless thereContinue reading “Careful What You Ask For”

And The Beat Goes On…

Another child has left this world without getting a chance to live their life first. Shot down in Houston, Texas, a five year-old boy was killed. By an eight year-old boy. I wonder if the kid had led a rough street life of crime, if he had a lengthy rap sheet, or he was justContinue reading “And The Beat Goes On…”

What is Wrong With People?

Did you see the heartless act of an ignorant girl who threw a bucket of water on a homeless woman who was merely sitting on the property of the convenience store where the girl worked? In the freezing cold, not that it amplifies the hatred any more, but who are the idiots that raised thisContinue reading “What is Wrong With People?”


This oughta be fun. The family that took in South Korean tourists during the recent deadly snowstorm in upstate New York should make every TRUE American proud to be one.. In a time when everyone and everything is suspect, trust and compassion won out and the world, for just one second in time, became closer.Continue reading “Perspectives”

Merry Christmas

I know; it was yesterday, but I was too busy having fun and enjoying our holiday Turkey Dinner with just the two of us, the Diaz Brothers, and a twenty-six pound turkey. The snow is about a foot deep everywhere, and it doesn’t look like there is any 2022 city budget money left to roustContinue reading “Merry Christmas”
