Unions, Bureaucrats, and Asshats! OH MY!

Ok, so Steve Jobs, the guy who invented the friggin’ iPod (have you heard of it?), took a stand at the School Reform Conference and said that teacher’s unions are the big problem. Nothing crazy there, really, but truly, the morons are coming out of the woodwork to say that Jobs isn’t connected with reality […]

Then the Terrorists Win

I find it amazingly disturbing that we are giving up our fundamental right to question (free registration required), which is even more fundamental than our right to freedom of speech, in an any form of artistic expression. I understand that having someone denegrate your icons is hard to deal with, however letting someone condone violence […]

Votes of the Beasts

I find a certain poetic balance in the fact that a group of bigots are calling for the U.S. Senate to vote on an amendment to the U.S. Constitution that would ban gay marriage on Sixth Day of the Sixth Month of the Sixth Year of the New Millennia – in other words, “Doing the […]

Porn On Wry

Michael Lucas has been blogging for a while, and even though English is not his first language and he’s a porn star, he’s not a stereotype. Other than the size of his, *ahem*, business machine. His take on the lounging president (“sitting” seems too active for him) is priceless, and while totally Not Safe For […]

Conviction lost, for good?

Just a quick thought on the whole mess by Carla Martin, but you might want to read Tamper-Proof – Carla Martin’s witness tampering wasn’t rare, just sloppy. By David Feige at Slate.com first. Done reading? Good deal. I know that there is as much strategy in the court system as in any match of chess […]

You’re unique… just like everyone else!

Ok, so politics being what it is, let’s forget for a moment that every single politician has to work the same tired lines, the same tired conferences, speeches, dinners, fund-raisers, blue-haired broads and every other possible cliché of the season, and what do you have? Good question! You see, when elections happen, they aren’t discreet. […]

What’s that smell? Oh!!

Well, it’s that time of year again, and that means that yards shall soon sprout weeds of a different color, people will start arguing over who is better for what, and, of course, ‘bologna’ will once again be the meat of the day – even during Lent. Why? Because it’s time to campaign! Yes, gentle […]

This is where we go wrong and whackjobby.

Look, here’s how comedy works – you take something that is known and you twist it in some clever way to make a new connection. The humor comes from doing it with timing and making people believe you are headed one direction and then *BAM* you end up in another place. There are many different […]

Busy with Oprah

I can’t believe how busy I’ve been, and how amazingly fun being scarily busy can be. When you spend more than 40 hours a week working at a job you better love it, and while it’s not all sunshine and roses, it’s quite nice that most of the gig isn’t painful. I’ve got some filming […]

A Child is Born

My friend Laurie has finally given birth to her and Andrew’s second child, Neal Thomas. He was over 9 pounds at birth, and apparently is a descendant of Murphy – the guy with the law. Why would I say that? Well. Laurie had decided that she was done with work and that Friday would be […]
