Don’t be a drag, Lil’ Snowflake

Don’t be a drag, Lil’ Snowflake

Photo: At least Milton Berle and Bob Hope had the decency to not read books. Today I’d like to talk about Lil Nas X. If it seems a little quiet here, that’s because all the racists just quit reading after the word “Lil,” and all the homophobes left after the word “Nas.” And anybody who likes decent music left after the “X.” The only reason I’m still here is because I’m getting paid big-time money to write it. And the only reason you’re still here is because your computer froze up and no matter how many times you click the […]

NOAA’s winter outlook for the South is all too familiar

NOAA’s winter outlook for the South is all too familiar

In case you haven’t heard, NOAA — that’s the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Association, not that guy with the big boat — has issued its winter outlook for the United States. To sum it up for folks in these here parts, it’s likely to be warmer and drier than normal in Southern states due in large part to La Nina, which is another reason we gotta build that wall.

A few brave folks, of course, have charged courageously into the salon because as Billy Crystal used to point out on Fernando’s Hideaway on “Saturday Night Live:” It’s better to look good than to feel good.” Don’t I know it. Some of you, though, have played it a little safer. You’re the guys looking like Shaggy from “Scooby-Doo,” and the women looking […]

Trump should go all-in on this whole TV administration thing

Trump should go all-in on this whole TV administration thing

Lately, President Trump has taken a lot of heat for turning to television for people to fill posts throughout his administration. Of course, that’s simply going to make him even more intent upon doing exactly that. I say the president should double-down on this whole television administration thing. I know he’d like to basically employ all of Fox News, but I think that is far too limiting, and they make a lot more money scaring old white folks in primetime than they could all day in government. He should reach beyond punditry channels, news networks and reality TV. He should […]
