American Kabuki and the Politics of Irrelevance

(0) Comments | Posted November 12, 2015 | 12:40 PM

I've long been accustomed to the fatal car accident of American politics. My response has always been pretty garden variety. I call it the Can't Look, Can't Look Away Syndrome. But lately there's been a progression - I just can't look. It's not that I don't care anymore. I care...

Ferguson: Snatching Power From the Jaws of Injustice

(2) Comments | Posted November 30, 2014 | 1:43 PM

There is a moment when the foundation of things as they are cracks, when the dam leaks its fatal, irreversible drop, when the tectonic plates shift enough to do more than rattle the shelves. It is the moment when the past finally arrives and collides with the future, announcing itself...

A Tale of Two Conventions

"Is there a sane man anywhere, anywhere?
Got giraffes in my hair
And I don't care, no I don't care

Now it seems I cry a lot
Oh, tell me...

I hate to admit it, but it's true. It's good sport watch these millionaire media mouthpieces try to get their privileged point of view around the occupy movement. I want to be kind. I don't want to ridicule them because I am not without my own tragic limitations, but I...

The arrival time was set for 12:00pm. I got there at 11:30 and found parking without a problem. I didn't take it as bad sign because one of the fantastic things about Portland, Oregon is that no matter what is going on, you can always find a parking spot.

(16) Comments | Posted October 5, 2011 | 11:38 AM

When it happened in Egypt and spread across the Middle East between December and May, we called it the "Arab Spring." Now that it is happening in United States in October, it seems appropriate to call it the "American Fall." And yet, when this term spontaneously popped out of my...

Class Warfare -- The Republicans Are Right!

(1) Comments | Posted September 26, 2011 | 5:28 PM

Well, it was bound to happen -- sooner or later I would find myself agreeing with the Republicans. As much as I hate to admit it, when it comes to the idea that what is going on in this country is class warfare, I agree with them. Yes. It's true....

I'm Mad as Hell...

I was only twelve years old when I first saw the movie Network. It was 1975 and even though the culture of America was much more liberal than it is today, I was stunned by what I saw and heard. Of course, what everyone remembers from the movie is the...
