First Grade Christmas Blues

Is this not the most perfect punctuation mark for this miserable moment of school failure? "School District Apologizes After Teacher Tells First Graders Santa Isn't Real" But they're not really sorry.

Things Fall Apart

I don’t know how we can like ourselves very much.  Not in this moment. Everything’s so disordered and ill-tempered. And lots seem very okay with this ... all right with this bankruptcy of common sense. There’s this casualness in how we mistreat sacred stuff that's made us special. How we desecrate … and adulterate … indispensable … Continue reading Things Fall Apart

Remember How Happy We Weren’t?

Bad nostalgia ... the Obama time. Tireless message ... even for those who serve their purgatories here on Earth in a blue state: Vote! This year's election is like no other. Should the Democrats take the House, they'll take control of your lives ... and haunt you from Day One. Maxine Waters will chair the powerful … Continue reading Remember How Happy We Weren’t?

“… and that’s why it’s all Trump’s fault.”
