It’s five people who are scientists or political activists or a mix of both. All bemoaning the fact that much of the scientific world has thrown in the towel on preventing global warming from reaching an extinction point. But this was a point made by Kevin, who I’ve quoted here before. Kevin has been around […]

I did six shows of THE STORY OF FALLING DON as part of the Frigid Fest. I was happy with the quality of the work I came out with. I got a good review–mine was one of only two plays mentioned in Manhattan with a Twist, which you can see here. If you are averse […]

THE STORY OF FALLING DON, my play about surviving 9/11 and the 20 years after, will open on February 16 at UNDER ST. MARKS theater space on E4 Street. Tickets are $16. You can call ahead for tickets . I’ve posted a video preview of the play on my YouTube Channel. It’s here: You […]

The premise of the Netflix movie DON’T LOOK UP is that there’s a planet killing comet heading for earth and in five months and a few days, it will hit Earth and cause a mass extinction event. The only people who know initially are two astronomers who’ve seen it and done the math. The question […]

We’re now a year into an insurrection by supporters of Donald Trump to play through the idea that 2020 was a stolen election and Biden ‘is not president’. If true this would be the second such case in my lifetime, but of course it isn’t true. Every judge and attorney in the 50 states has […]

Cranky Dan notes that the CDC just decided you only need FIVE days of quarantine for COVID, […]

Okay. I’m writing this to get caring people who don’t understand our coming rendezvous with the SIXTH MASS EXTINCTION to realize that McKibben and Gore and all the other ‘folk heroes’ of climate activism don’t have a clue. short story (and I’m tired of being vilified for this): Switching to E cars won’t help; ending […]

I’m highly pissed off. I don’t think I need to explain this, so I borrowed this graphic from FB, where someone shared it a few days ago. And while it is mostly about Trump and his cronies, Matt Gaetz is featured and his plethora of crimes haven’t been prosecuted. It was a reminder that ten […]

I really have nothing much to say about NYC’s mayoral campaign. No one thought Curtis Sliwa had any chance of victory, and the results proved that assertion correct. That said, I DO NOT think it’s good for NY to not have competitive races for mayor. You can search here for my homage du merde for […]

what my last day as a poll inspector was like I worked the NYC election yesterday–Citizens were picking a mayor (between Eric Adams and Curtis Sliwa here in NYC) and dealing with some ballot referenda. Also a chance to pick new Democrats for court (the GOP in Brooklyn doesn’t field candidates because the borough is […]
