Hurry up with 2014 already!

We are now in the armpit of the year that is the six days betwixt Xmas and New Year’s Day. I can’t do a Year in Review on a totally pessimistic note. I had several performance gigs.  I bid adieu to Richmond, Virginia after getting rid of my parent’s lifetime’s accumulation of check stubs. On the […]

Who in NYC wants to see a play about a Clown for Peace??(update)

They not only found them guilty of vandalism (which was expected, and […]

Monday is War Tax Day!

It’s that time of year again–I’ve gotten a bunch of e-mails from my peacenik friends asking me to join them on the steps of the Post Office (or wherever things are happening) to remind hapless individuals paying the IRS on Monday exactly what their money is going for. The go-to source for me is the […]

Iraq at ten years out

A quick look at the Calendar (I HAVE been kind of busy lately) tells me we’re at the ten-year anniversary of the regrettable decision by our last president to go to war with people who had NOTHING to do with 9/11. On the Sunday before the war, my former church (Washington Square United Methodist Church) […]
