Here she is Miss America, Cara Mund. And she complains that the Miss America hierarchy has silenced her. She also said that in her year as Miss America they had bullied and humiliated her. They told her what to wear, what to say and worse, what she couldn’t say. Oh the horror! Now maybe […]

The Tombs

Situated in lower Manhattan just alongside all the famous court houses you see in the TV shows and movies is, The Tombs. The Tombs, is the prison that holds all the real criminals before they go to trial in all those various court houses. The Tombs are so named because of the Egyptian style of […]

A Few Words for the Not So Wise

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani is threatening to go to war with America and he says “It will be the mother of all wars.” And, we can’t help but thinking, didn’t we hear that before somewhere? So we went to our files and sure enough, we found it. It was almost word for word too and […]

The First Thing, the Second Thing and One Other Thing

Many years ago way before I even got married an older guy I knew, explained a few things about cheating on your wife. First, he explained the object was to cheat up. By that he meant someone younger and better looking. Otherwise, as he explained what was the point? Now we don’t endorse cheating but […]

And, now out of the ashes of the bloody shootings at Stoneman-Douglas High […]

It is true that many of the Administration’s actions are confusing. Despite the investigation into whether they conspired with a foreign government to influence the election, the State Department has balked at enforcing the law passed to […]

It’s Cryin’ Time, Again

Chuck Schumer reeling from the defeat of his government shut down told his constituents that the reason he was going to vote to fund President the Donald Himself’s wall on our Southern border was, it couldn’t be built. Obviously he didn’t see the recent movie ‘The Great Wall’ with Matt Damon because while the movie […]

Kitsch, Decadence and the Why of Donald Trump

The artistic concept of “decadence,” as either a movement or a condition, can be traced back at least to the eighteenth century and appears and reappears (think Baudelaire, Oscar Wilde, 1920s Berlin, etc.) moving forward up to the present time. And it would seem, in the broadest sense of that word, that once again we’re […]

Carrying the New Puritan Flag

I was musing today about the supposed backlash against the Obama Administration’s proposal to require religious organizations like universities, hospitals, etc. to provide, as part of their health benefits to their workers, contraceptives. This is being presented as an assault on religious freedom and more particularly, Christianity–even though twenty-eight states have a similar law […]
