Distraction

On the one hand, I sit here with my over-stimulated, self-righteous brain, sniping at the disgusting tub of lard working part time, (maybe in some odd kinship with the fast-food workers who supply his nourishment), in the Oval Office, railing against his Tweets, video-ops, blatant lies and corruptions with the…

Ho

I grew up in a hand-to-mouth family but I truly never felt the lack of anything.  My Mom and especially my Dad were both unconditional lovers.  What could have been better than that? As a father and now, a grandfather, I feel the responsibility to pass that annuity on, while…
