Opinions must be able to change. Today’s Post Traumatic Stress was yesterday’s ‘Lack of Moral Fiber.’ Yesterday POW Sgt. Bergdahl became today’s latest victim of the Afghan war. We blame him. We want to punish him. But I want to first shoot so many others who knew what they were doing…

I’ve never quite understood people who seek to be ‘dominated’ sexually. Or submit to other manners of rough sex that doesn’t hold back. Then again I’ve never understood why I’ve always endeavored to risk my life on grand adventures from … Continue reading

Thank heaven for little girls, they grow up in the most delightful ways… And now look at Mo’ne… And at the rest of us embracing the simple life… again. So Keep It Simple, Stupid!

What I love about the Little League World Series and its darling, Mo’ne, is that most of us don’t seem to notice or care that ‘she’ is black. And ain’t that just splendid. Because once again a beautiful, very young, … Continue reading

Waging war is much easier than keeping the peace… And in Afghanistan, where for thousands of years empires went to die, no one understood their past, nor listened to what they wanted for future peace… Or so I was told by a young vet about to be committed to the war of marriage…

At first they seemed like just three ordinary young guys when they ambled into the Twin Smoke Shoppe in South Philadelphia the other night. Then again most people seem run-of-the-mill at first. Their haircuts were cropped neat and tidy — … Continue reading

A lot of great drama begins with screaming. I mean, I came kicking and screaming into this world. And what may seem depressing to one person may be an absolute scream to another – especially after 5 or 7 beers. But then that Malaysian airline came screaming down in Ukraine…

The screaming raced across my dreams in the wee early morning hours. It has happened before. But there is nothing to compare to it now. And I snapped awake. The glowing embers of my red digital alarm clock impassively exhaled … Continue reading

Judgment usually comes from experience. And experience often comes from bad judgment. The real war is not between East and West – it is between intelligent and stoopid people. Circumstances cause us to act the way we do. Keep that in mind before stupidly pre-judging the actions of POW Bergdahl…

A law professor friend once instructed me in the chicanery of legal sophistry this way: If you have the law on your side, pound the law; if the facts are on your side pound the facts; but if neither are … Continue reading

In this national emotional whirlpool of guns, Newtown slaughter, movies of Osama’s noble revenge and torturing evil men let me warn you: Fear rules! Fear makes strangers of folks who would be friends. The greater the fear the more government controls you, me and everything…

One time a few years back in West Africa we got caught in a bit of a fire fight. These very unsophisticated-looking, unsmiling fellows were shooting and throwing pointy things at us. And it was no use trying to convince … Continue reading

Why is it always easier to fix the blame rather than the problem? Like with the Doctor, the Nurse and the pending doom of December 21st… Sometimes stuff just happens… Is there anything you can do about the weather?…

I guess I have to blame my long dead bourbon sippin’ pappy for that great sex life I can only remember. Between those omnipotent puffs on his omniscient corn cob pipe he both excoriated and exhorted me. He growled that … Continue reading
