My name is Daniel Kinch. I also answer to Dan as well as a variety of other names (sometimes to ‘Jerry’). I studied acting in college at University of South Florida (and afterwards), but my interest is (and always was) in writing plays–I studied with the late great Jack Gelber at Brooklyn College. I’ve written lots of […]

Today there was a Climate March in NYC. I was there. I made the trip in my costume for Planet Hospice. And I carried a sign designed for the moment. Many pictures were taken of me (many by people with press credentials). I don’t know whether any will be in news feeds. And more than […]

So let’s pretend that you’re me (YOU call the medical insurance people :-\) I consider myself intelligent enough, but I’m not a person with credentials attesting to that. I am not a PhD in anything.

Some news regarding climate and predictions. The above cover was a wake-up call for me–I started blogging about ‘doomer porn’ almost three years ago. It has been a pretty lonely business being a Cassandra. But Utne Reader is a fairly mainstream print-media outlet–a few steps ahead of most lefty places, perhaps, but not out in […]

I have a friend (shocking, it’s true) named Brian Kenny. Brian is an accomplished artist and sculptor. He was profiled in the New York Times and in Art News, and his work has been exhibited numerous times since the 1990’s. A couple years ago when I was doing the Sex & Politics radio show, he came on […]
