The rabbit known as Obama.....

Rabbits are famous for running away. Whenever there is the slightest trouble, you see them and and their bouncy white cottontails running away. In the last month, if you've been watching the news with any impartiality, you've seen Barack Obama running...

Stars are special part two....

As I flipped through the channels the other week, there it was....Gene Simmons Family Jewels. There was nothing else on, so I watched out of some morbid sense of curiosity. It was the week that Mr. Simmons was out on the town with some lovely eye...

Stardom makes you special.....

So Amy Winehouse has died. Expected, not at all a surprise. I have one question.....What makes this such a tragedy? The bone I have to pick is not about Winehouse, but about the regard we give these stars when they die. Sure, many of us out there can...

We really can never go home again....

A writer once wrote "you can never go home again" and he was right. I think about home, and I remember it all as vividly as if it were yesterday. The house would smell of dinner, homemade by mom. If it were a special day, you could smell the lasagna...

a hodgepodge....of kids, beatings, and lawyers.

What value a childs life? It has happened again. A mother took her nine month old daughters life by drowning her, and then proceeded to commit suicide by drowning herself. She left behind a husband and four other children. I don't know what's going on...

It's been 150 years....and yet is still burns.

An article caught my eye. It was about a park that once had on the property a home for confederate civil war veterans. You see, waaaay back when in 1901, when there were still a number of confederate veterans still alive, Alabama instituted a tax to...

Crimes unobserved.....

In the last six weeks, it seems all crimes but one have stopped. Casey Anthony took our attention, and her case kept us riveted to our televisions, newspapers, and internet. Sadly, other crimes were going on as she was being tried. Yup, you heard it...

Why we must go into space......

"Ask ten different scientists about the environment, population control, genetics, and you'll get ten different answers, but there's one thing every scientist on the planet agrees on. Whether it happens in a hundred years or a thousand years or a...

Scare tactics and the coming disaster.....

President Barack Obama does one thing well...he scares people. He scares the elderly with forecasts of social security and medicare not being funded, that neither will be paid. He scares parents by saying education programs are at risk. He scares...

It's a dark day....and it's all Zanny fault.

Today, the twelve people assigned with deciding Casey Anthonys' guilt or innocence went the way no one could fathom...they aquitted her. In this trial, we have heard the story of a capricious two year old who was found dead and decomposing, duct tape...

Have you ever wondered where your going?

In the middle of your daily rush, that frantic run around that takes you to your job, or home, or the little league game your all star slugger is playing in, have you ever just stopped and wondered where you're going? A long time ago, my dad would...

If you're easily offended, stop reading here...

As the newsflashes about these violent and thieving flash mobs that are popping up all over the country (New York, Chicago, Los Angelos..etc) were running on my television, I observed one thing. This is where I have to warn the racially...

My campaign to be president...seriously....

You may have missed my appearance on Fox news, or maybe you you missed the announcement on CNN, but there's good reason for that. They never happened. See, I am trying a new approach....actually being FROM the people not above the people. There are...

Ahhh, fake shock, shyness, and anger...A hollywood thing.

There's something unique in Hollywood (besides the walk of fame, the chinese theatre, etc) and that's the false humility. In 2009, Rihanna fought the release of nude pictures of her (of course she said they weren't really her, but photoshop), and...

Sometimes television can be beautiful.......

One of the most berated and misunderstood niches in television is science fiction. People look at it and say that it could never happen, that it is too far fetched, and in some cases that may be true, but sometimes (just sometimes) the message goes...

A program worthy of keeping is allowed to die.....

In the coming days, the last shuttle will lift off, and then come back, heralding in the end of the shuttle program. In the past thirty years, the space shuttles have helped build and supply the International Space Station, launched sattelites and...

let's not call it anti-gay marriage, let's call it purist.

Well, I am not against gay relationships, but why must they want to stomp all over tradition? In most states, there are already rights in place for partnerships, but they aren't labeled as marriage. The partnerships give gay couples all the rights of...

Help save the turtle...I like turtles.

Today an article came out on yahoo about Vice-president Joe Biden discovering a federally subsidized website about the desert tortoise. Now, I am not one to hug trees, or demand the environment be federally subsidized, but Mr. Bidens reaction...

Chris Christie for president...NOT

I am from New Jersey, and even though Governor Christie is doing a great job, I couldn't see him as president. (Actually I could, but let me explain) He has done a great job getting the state budget down a bit, and he is standing up to the forces that...

It's still about the money.....

Years ago, just after he turned Chrysler around, Lee Iaccoca was asked if he would run for president. At this time he was making millions of dollars a year, and showed no signs of letting up. His reply was simple..."No. I wouldn't take the pay cut"....

Fathers Day...again. A letter to Dad.

Hey Dad.... It's been forever since you left us, but the day you did burns brighter in my memory than yesterday, more than the first time I had sex. As I look back, I see you, sitting in your chair at home, listening to The Inkspots, or watching...
