  • The Thin Blue Lives

    All lives matter, of course they do. To use the old clichés: white, black, brown, red, yellow — all of them! Even the Blue ones. No, not the Picts, or as we frequently call them, Woads — my ancestral barbarians from the north of Great...

  • Hillary or Bernie — are they Supreme beings?

    For the last 40 years, I have read about and researched extensively the United States Supreme Court — its traditions, its history, its scandals. Along with the selection of a Pope, the process of replacing a Justice has long fascinated me, and we are in...

  • Hillary! WTF?!?!?

    What the hell are you thinking? Sending Albright and Steinem out to castigate women for not supporting another woman? “Going to hell?” And sending hubby out to complain about you being “picked on”? 13e4444444444444444444444444444444444444444[]]=211111111111111111 111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111po0000 (If you can read “feline”, you now know that my...
