A lot of adults dream the dream where you are back in school and about to take a test for which you are unprepared. This is a variation on that kind of dream. I had this dream for years over and over again every three or four months: I am living wi...

I Like Conspiracy Theories
Today's interest in conspiracy theories reflects the corrupt degenerated state of today's journalism. Names like Dorothy Kilgallen, Danny Casalaro and Gary Webb come to mind as the reason. Journalists, who used to the bravest of all litera...

I stopped eating at Carl's Jr. after their really disgusting low brow commercials came on TV, the ones that showed stupid acting teen boys slobbering on their hamburgers and dropping catsup and bits of food all over their clothes. Not only did i...
