Re: Let's Hold On. No, let's not. (spouting off)

Danny Zelisko is money grubbing scum. That is all. Rock Promoters are not usually paragons of virtue. I worked with people involved with Bill Graham Productions' Security in the early 80's, and the vibe was that of a Roadie Mafia. I've worked with both Rock Musicians and Country Musicians. I prefer...

Re: Boehner: Trump Incited Deadly Riot

Trump's comment was to call Boehner a RINO. I guess most of the GOP was not really the GOP until Trump got involved.

Schadenfreude: GaetzGate

If any word deserves citizenship in the English language, it's schadenfreude . But there is a special zest to the experience when Matt Gaetz is the main course. Matt Gaetz existed at the periphery of my political consciousness until he was seen wearing a gas mask while Congress was conducting briefi...

One of my favorite male camaraderie scenes in the movies is from The Deer Hunter, where the guys are playing pool and singing You're Just Too Good To Be True.

A little off topic, but UCLA/Gonzaga matchup was the greatest men's college basketball game I've ever seen.

Re: Will Biden lock up more black people?

The video of the Rodney King beating was captured by an early adapter with a video camera across the street. One of the most dramatic videos of George Floyd's killing was taken by a 13 year old girl on her cell phone. I grew up in the 50's and 60's. I still remember the impact of the black and white...

Re: Will Biden lock up more black people?

Racism is color blind. Fear of the foreigner, fear of the other. It DOES infect people of all races. I think in some ways that AAPIs are the Irish immigrants of the 21st Century, for the way they are seen as taking American jobs. Add to that the differences in language and culture, and they can beco...
