    This is not the new normal. It is the old normal. Change is a historical constant. There have always been winners and losers.

    I think Trump would probably agree with you. He has little to lose by being called a racist. His enemies have been doing that from the beginning, and would continue to do so if he were to limit all...

    Itís not just about sex so much as the greater universe of fun. Although I do find it odd to hear people want to think of the voters who put Trump into office as a pack of prudes. From what Iíve...

    World Cup

    Outside the sacred precincts of baseball, I donít follow sports much. Especially soccer, which always seemed kind of metric system foreign, kids-with-money to me. So why are we hearing so abnormally...

    I will miss Mad. It was about pure silliness. Todayís TV clowns all seem to have an agenda. Sort of like watching your high school social studies teacher trying to be funny.

    It doesnít seem like political panegyrics or denunciations generally do well at the box office. Especially when the subject is still living. I think it speaks well of our country that such stuff...

    I know some people claim to be threatened and offended by the flag, the anthem and even the idea of America. Sneakers with flag logos require censoring. We are invited to make 7/4 a day of bleak...
