Children begin by loving their parents; then they judge them; rarely, do they forgive them. But blame is for G-d and the small children we must keep from going insane. Leanne discovered she couldn’t have them. And I had married into insanity. Indeed, mothers may be fonder than fathers of their children because they are more certain they are their own…

With just a tad of a snide edge in her Australian accent she wondered about my butterfly pins, as in “What’s up with them?” At the same time her long fingers lightly examined the broach arrangement of the colorful flying … Continue reading

It is a tragedy of the world that no one knows what he doesn’t know – for the less a man knows, the more sure he is that he knows everything. Too bad we didn’t get to know what Harambe knew. Perhaps it was that he’d rather die a meaningful death than live a meaningless life. For the tragedy of life is what dies inside a man or beast while he lives…

Perhaps because I live alone I find it harder to find someone to blame. Except the weather. But there’s nothing I can do about the weather. Just as there is nothing I can do about all those folks from Florida … Continue reading

Bambi has a profound effect on children – like me – because it’s about losing your mother. My ailing mother isn’t the only person begging to die. But right now she is the only person begging me. And I’m a coward. Hell, I am not afraid of dying. I just don’t want to be there when it happens.

If I wasn’t a coward I would have put a pillow over my mother’s imploring face and ended her misery. My misery. Everyone’s misery. But the world is so complicated. So ripe with legalese. We can put an animal out … Continue reading

From the recent conventions you must agree that Republicans have nothing but bad ideas. And the Democrats have no ideas. Indeed, democracy is the recurrent suspicion that more than half of the people are right more than half of the time. And I’ve come to believe the only difference between Republicans and Democrats is Democrats allow the poor to be corrupt, too…

I have a confession. I have been a Republican – at least in my lustful heart — since birth. But in truth, I have never found a Republican to vote for. It’s not that I don’t trust them. I trust … Continue reading

All men make mistakes, but married men find out about them sooner. And this got me to thinking: Now that I am able to complete my own sentences it’s time to say something nice about my ex-wife…or would that be a mistake?

I would like to say something nice about my last ex-wife. Hmm… You know, the one: Stephanie Blatt. The green-eye She-Devil from the other side of midnight. The reason G-d made bourbon. The living proof that exorcism doesn’t work. And … Continue reading

If Dick Cheney would have shot Trayvon Martin would they have called it another hunting accident? Would they have termed it a racist thing, or just another stupid act by another rich white guy with a gun license…

Six years back when Bush’s Vice President ‘Dick’ shot that Texas attorney perilously close to death everybody who had something to gain or maintain, quickly called it a “hunting accident.” Had that fellow-hunting-fool died of his heart attack and collapsed … Continue reading

Ekatarina thought I wanted to have an affair with her when I said I wanted her to help me meet a naughty Russian girl. Indeed, it’s a strange world of language when skating on thin ice will get you into hot water…

Ekatarina is getting to be a pain in the derriere. Now I already know I am. But I am an acquired taste. In fact, when some folks notify me I am being a pain in the butt I tell them: … Continue reading

In war we don’t determine who is right, only who is left. In elections power belongs not to those who cast votes, but to those who count them. This can all be changed. But if you can’t change your mind you can’t change anything.

Here’s what I don’t understand – at least  about how we vote and fight wars: If we’re so smart, or at least evolved, how is it that we keep electing the same stupid people who keep sending our young men … Continue reading

A lesson I learned from my dear ol’ Pappy: you give people a warning before you shoot them. It may just be precisely what G-d had in mind…

My dear bourbon sippin’ Pappy fired his .45 caliber Army pistol, shattering the still, late-night air. About 20 minutes later he did it again. I didn’t know what he was aiming to shoot. Without a moon there was nothing much … 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
