As long as enough people can be frightened, then all people can be ruled. Fear becomes the ticket to destroy our rights. We fear things in proportion to our ignorance of them. And panic kills. And staying in a state of fear about Ebola leads to panic. In the end Luca’s fears caused him to eat himself to death…

I spotted Luca’s gigantic mitt of stubby fingers reaching out to snatch the plate of tastykake crumpets, one of the grandest junk-food sweet cakes on the planet. And immediately I quick-stepped across the small room of cigar smokers… and punched … Continue reading

The true adventurer goes forth aimless and uncalculating to meet and greet unknown fate. Which is how I ended up going to my first social mixer. And I learned something: Most people just want to be entertained. And enjoy the moment – even if it includes an annoyance like me…

I went, a tad reluctantly, to a social mixer last night. I think it was for professionals. Or perhaps just anybody on this planet with an actual job looking for women or men also with jobs, in order to meet, … Continue reading

It’s better to be Jewish than gay because when you’re Jewish you don’t have to tell your mother. Racism is so stupid when there are so many more reasons to dislike people on an individual basis. Hmm… I thought racism was when you hated ‘others’ more than you are supposed to…

I must be a racist — even if the word racist is like ketchup these days. It can be put on practically anything. Heck, as that leggy, blonde neo-con once wrote: If only Al Sharpton were around, Lincoln would have … Continue reading

Remember that stress doesn’t come from what’s going on in your life. It comes from your thoughts about what’s going on in your life. And though some things hit you harder than a heart attack an optimist laughs to forget; a pessimist forgets to laugh…

In a serendipity manner the other day my cardiologist got around to telling me that there is a problem with my heart… again. I protested that that was impossible… I mean, I divorced that problem. She’s gone. Cost me everything. … Continue reading

For a business to be great it must have a conscience. Hmm… So that’s what happened to American ‘bidness.’ Yet America wasn’t founded so we could all be better. It was so we could all be anything we damn pleased. And our government is damned pleased to be organized crime…

You know you had a great time last night when, after you sobered up, you reckon you need to change your name, change your job and change your address. Now that’s what I call a party! Like my erstwhile annual … Continue reading

I tried to commit suicide by sticking my head in the oven, but there was a cake in it. Hmm…There is something both great and terrible about suicide, euthanasia and such. But the law is ‘law-fool’ and afflicts us foolishly. The only difference between suicide and martyrdom is press coverage.

One of the times I tried suicide the rope ended up being too long. Hmm… Don’t laugh. This was a tragic miscalculation. After all, I was a math major. Another time I tried overdosing on what I thought was sleeping … Continue reading

On July 4th we celebrate independence. Among other matters we detested being taxed without representation. Unfortunately, 237 years later we are being taxed with mis-representation. Those in authority eat up too much in taxes. And we-duh-people are starving for our independence — again…

The following thought – even though it has little directly to do with U.S. Sen. John McCain — is not anymore flawed, than the former Presidential candidate’s problematic military, marriage and métier record. Hmm…this could prove interesting…So follow me here: … Continue reading
