‘Live in Hell, Rent Texas out’

global weirding comes to the US big-time. As someone who thought I’d be a successful playwright/screenwriter by now, I read a lot of obscure history. At one point I was working on a musical play about the US Cavalry men that finally brought down the Apache nation (especially Geronimo). This was back in the 1980’s, […]

20th Anniversary of 9/11–a play to see

September of this year will mean more than usual. Somehow, a 20th anniversary of a tragic event means more than a 15th or tenth anniversary. So it is with the upcoming 20th for 9/11, the attack on NY. I’ve bored people with my personal 9/11 stories on numerous occasions over the years, and some of […]

The Trump Record

This was put up on Quora by a Democrat in the sTate of Indiana (already a rare individual). He goes by the moniker of Indiana War Donkey. I think most of the people following my blog know this, but still…It’s nice to have a reference point for such facts, especially as news organizations missed a […]

The damage done

One of the reasons I get burned out when I talk to climate activists these days is lack of comprehension on their part. I was disparaged by the adult leader of a group of young people marching for Sunrise Rebellion a couple years ago because I was trying to explain the Aerosol Masking effect. If […]

When do Blue Lives matter?

So my angst was poked today by a question on Quora, where I spend entirely too much time– If the GOP allegedly backs the blue, then why did they vote down the commission that would have physically backed the blue? Which twigged the question–was Blue Lives matter protesting in DC when the GOP voted down […]

The Worst News so far

I’m resorting to memes I find on Facebook these days because I’m getting pretty burned out on reality. Several Deaths in the family in recent weeks, plus a friend taking his own life, have pushed me through an emotional blender. I’m rarely laughing now. I work on smiling, but that was pointless during the COVID19 […]

adventures with virus

I got my last shot over the weekend for the Coronavirus. I received the Moderna vaccine (two-dose special). I had problems scheduling an appointment here in Brooklyn. I consider that good-news, actually. It means local people are doing the vaccine. My friends who regale me with stories of zero-wait time for the inoculation are mostly […]

Why we can’t stop using fossil fuels

Memo to Joe Biden (Biden pic stolen from ecosystems. com) I’m getting mighty tired of all the climate activists talking about ‘solving’ Global warming by cutting our use of fossil fuels (in the present). We need to accept the idea that global warming crisis is caused in large part by the estimated two trillion tons […]

Is Trump a ‘doomer’?

If you read more than a few of the 700+ articles posted here, you know I am a follower of the work of Dr. Guy McPherson, a scientist who has argued that we humans have scant time left on the planet (actually, not just humans, but put that aside for the moment). McPherson has been […]

Two Russians who saved the world

From Jeanette de Beauvoir: The man who saved the world… 50 years ago, at the height of the Cuban Missile Crisis, second-in-command Vasilli Arkhipov of the Soviet submarine B-59 refused to agree with his Captain’s order to launch nuclear torpedos against US warships and setting off what might well have been a terminal superpower nuclear […]
