Tipping makes no sense: Why do we tip Pierre $20 for bringing a $100 steak at night, but only tip Gertrude $2 for delivering a $10 plate of eggs in the morning? They’re performing the same services, aren’t they?

I never really mind bad service in a restaurant. It makes me feel much better about not leaving a tip. I know I am standing in a long viral line to spew some angst here, but I do have issues … Continue reading

Smoking cigars keeps me sane. Banning and overtaxing them not only makes me go nuts, it worsens our illegal alien problem — you bloody ignoramuses!

Filipe Sosa has this to say about that — “that” being the over taxation and smoking restrictions on cigars in the United States. To paraphrase his words plainly and succinctly: Everyone is ignorant, only on different subjects. And just because … Continue reading

If we tattooed our spouses, lawyers, politicians, crooks, criminals and other infidels at least their accomplices couldn’t claim to not know who they were with, or what they were doing

The man seated next to me in the diner unwrapped the blue saran around the territory extending from five inches below his right elbow to an equal distance above. I had curiously asked if he had been injured or had … Continue reading

I met an old friend. We undressed each other. And learned what Washington should learn: There should be no place to hide your lies or secret agendas

The other day I bumped into the ex-wife of an old journalist compatriot I haven’t  seen in the last 25 years. Either one. And she looked marvelous. We had a long afternoon lunch. Then we had a longer late nite … Continue reading

I can’t help myself: I am cursing. I am stoned. I am armed. And I am heading off to Washington. And no one can stop me because I am perfectly legal

I was reading some stories in one of my former journalistic sojourns – USA TODAY — the other day about all these eight, nine and 10 year-old little girls in Idaho, China, Peru, Romania, and most any port in the … Continue reading

Let’s get our soldiers to strip down to their Speedos and Victoria Secrets in Afghanistan and see if love and sex is more powerful than guns and bullets

When someone sticks his tongue into an electric socket, it doesn’t create a shocking opinion – it only demonstrates that stupidity never sleeps. Now I’m not here – just yet – to declare who was French kissing more stupidly: that … Continue reading
