APPLIED GUN VIOLENCE EXPLAINED

  Baby boomers have a unique perspective when it comes to gun violence. Our fathers participated in the most extreme gun violence in world history. The books call it WWII and Korea; the dads went with bad intentions.   Their applied gun violence saved the world from a Nazi future. Along with the horrific acts […]

DEMOCRAT PARTY OFFICIAL WEBSITE PHONE CALL

  I got the call last night from the Democrat Party, and like a story that goes public after signing non-disclosure statements, I felt a sense of freedom.   The phone call on my land line, yes I still have a land line, was a money call. One hundred dollars was the starting point.   […]

A TIME LONG AGO AT A HIGH SCHOOL FAR FAR AWAY

North Bend Oregon High School, class of 1973. What’s so special?   Like later generations staking their claims to, ‘the first digital generation’ or ‘the first paperless generation’ or ‘the first generation raised on video games,’ the generational niche of 1973 is ‘the first modern generation.’   Born of the roaring ’50’s with TV dinners […]

NEW VACUUM SHOWS DIRT, OLD VACUUMS KEEP IT IN THE BAG

Old vaccums didn’t show dirt like new vacuum cleaners. They hid it all in a bag.   And that bag filled up tighter than a old feather pillow compressed by years of thrashing sweat and bad dreams.   Some dirt bags even look like pillows, but don’t substitute. You’d end up resting your head on […]

SHOW UP LATE? APOLOGIZE AND PROMISE TO JUMP

      I’m sorry I’m late.  

A VERY MYSTERIO CHRISTMAS 2017, AND BEYOND

CANCER TREATMENT: 5 THINGS I KNEW BEFORE STARTING

    I will submit to the cancer treatment sequence of events that may or may not do what is predicted. Like a lamb to slaughter, I would submit to whatever it took to kill the shit out of hpv16 throat cancer.   In the writing world we all dream of that one ‘YES’ that […]

DOWNSIZING DOWNER: I’VE BEEN LIVING IN TRASH AND DIDN’T KNOW IT. ARE YOU?

  Downsizing Downer Part One:   Storage closet. Hardwood. 3 hinged doors. 5 shelf interior. Curved top. Three-dimensional painted front. Large storage capacity interior in a stylish format. European designed import probably, 1940s 1950s.   In other words, a converted armoire barely hanging together by sub-standard euro-fasteners that evolved into an ‘entertainment center’ then a […]

AMERICAN EDUCATION STARTS WITH THE FIRST WORD

  American education teaches and American education does some learning too, as in we learn how to teach.   Isn’t that the happy ending education promises? Learn how to treat others as you would have them treat you.   Why does that sound so biblical?   This is where the separation does neither American public […]

CHICKEN DINNER: WHEN CHICKENS TALK

    Too often we let days go by without notice. One chicken dinner blends into the next.   June barbecued chicken turns into November roasters and it feels like a long weekend. It’s a sign we’re losing touch. At least that’s what we hear if we mention time passing at breakneck speed.   If […]
