Protesters should ditch their tents for hammocks

Protesters should ditch their tents for hammocks

On college campuses across America, little tent cities of kids addicted to protest culture are popping up and getting in the way of normal students who are engaging in far more common collegiate endeavors like racking up tens of thousands of dollars in debt on their way to achieving a Bachelor of Arts degree in Taylor Swift studies or stealing rival Northwest Junior Central State University’s bulldog mascot so that North Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem can shoot it in the head. You know, normal college stuff that we’ll all laugh about someday.  If you watch Fox News, you might think […]

In this age of dumb conspiracy theories, I have a few little ones of my own

In this age of dumb conspiracy theories, I have a few little ones of my own

We are now living in the age of conspiracy theories. It’s probably no coincidence that we’re also living in the age of dwindling journalism staffs, attacks on books, surging artificial intelligence capabilities and addiction to social media, where people believe headlines they see fly by on their phones whether they are from a conspiracy nut like Alex Jones or a serious source of investigative journalism like The Onion.  The latest fellow to come out as ignorant — though I do commend him for his bravery — is Tyler Owens, a defensive back from Texas Tech who recently made comments at […]

Your Taylor Swift opinion speaks volumes … about you

Your Taylor Swift opinion speaks volumes … about you

I wonder how many men who are triggered by the lady on the left cheering at NFL games have also railed against women like the one cheering on the right. Many of these men claim that Taylor Swift is seeking out and relishing the attention even as she sits in stadium sky boxes and clearly loathes having TV cameras constantly following her around as she cheers for her boyfriend. I’m pretty sure the scantily clad lady on the right relishes the attention far more out there on the field and sidelines. Today, there are thousands upon thousands of girls watching […]

2024 — The Year in Preview

2024 — The Year in Preview

I’ve been doing my annual Year in Preview as long as I can remember. Then again, I can’t remember what I had for lunch yesterday, so that’s not saying too much. (It likely was a possum sammich, but it could have been a bowl of squirrel and dumplings.) Folks tell me I’ve been providing this critical public prognostication service since the last millennium — I assume toward the end of the last millennium, but they weren’t overly specific. And I won’t be stopping anytime soon because when you have the gift for seeing into the future as I have, it […]

Some old song titles just don’t cut it anymore

Some old song titles just don’t cut it anymore

I’ve been doing a lot of thinking lately about the Speaker of the House, Ukraine, the border, inflation, Donald Trump’s legal woes, and President Biden’s sweet little attack dogs.  And now my head hurts. So, instead of writing a blog today, I’ve decided to tell you a little about my debut album. Yes, I strum a little guitar and sing like a ferret being run over by a garbage truck, so I’m totally qualified to make it in today’s music scene. Who knows? I could make it so big that I wind up dating Travis Kelce. My album is called, […]
