Sanders end-game and the DNC

Hillary Rodham Clinton is now the official nominee for the DNC. As Sting would say, Well, good luck to ya.  I knew last year that Bernie stood almost no chance of winning the nomination. But he finished far better than any runner-up since the presidential primary system began. And between the Arnebeck lawsuit, the coming […]

Iowa and Bernie UPDATED

On Saturday, I did the Pinocchio Theater production of Hillary’s nose. It was a light-hearted look at Hillary’s lies a la Pinocchio (her nose getting bigger, iow). We performed it at the Union Square rally for Bernie here in NYC. There were some 2-3,000 people out in the cold, who then marched from 14th street […]

Part of that is about being a practitioner of sorts, something that works a lot of different ways. Also, I’m rarely taken with a play […]

Returning to Radio–Brooklyn Culture Jam
