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 […]

I like to think that I keep up with the news. But the morning news I get courtesy of MSM isn’t doing the trick anymore. If it weren’t for my friends in the Near Term Human Extinction movement, I wouldn’t have known about the deadly fires burning out of control in much of the American […]

He’s even sworn to pull out of the Paris COP 21 agreement, even though it will mean little in terms of sacrifice. Some politicians […]

I wrote many months ago about the Weimar Republic and how and why it collapsed into fascism once conditions got bad enough. Remember? Bad stuff happening now that Trump has unleashed all his ugly hate in his choices for the people to staff his new administration. Not surprising. I’m amazed that it took everyone so […]

While we ‘Muricans were fighting about the worst election in modern US history, this news came in from the Arctic. You can read past posts I’ve had here about the loss of Arctic ice, but it has always started coming back in October of each year. Not this year. If this is the ‘new November’, […]
