The Global Climate March NYC, November 2015

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 […]

Planet Hospice–A New monologue play

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. By the time I finished my masters degree many years ago, it was clear that colleges were no longer creating […]

Ukraine nuclear plants facing meltdown?

Extinction goes mainstream? UPDATED

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 […]

The Wit and Wisdom of Brian–an occasional series

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 […]
