My Version of Hell

There is no better therapist than a personal journal.  A journal waits patiently, doesn’t interrupt, argue, criticize, judge, talk back, condemn, nag, or gossip.  It’s there on your terms, when you want it, and it’s essentially free.    It’s also fun and sometimes embarrassing to re-read and see how perspective changes, or how memories differ from the written version.  I’ve kept a journal off and on throughout my life.  I’ve lost some, burned some, and some were stolen.  I prefer writing by hand, as I sit with morning coffee, because there’s no urgency, no need to correct typos, and there’s something inherently satisfying about low-tech pen and paper.    Ten years ago this month, I had entered early retirement, had acquired my first batch of chick…

The US Midterm Results - A Perfect Outcome!

I was watching the American Midterm elections with some trepidation. After all, when the President pees it tends to come down on our heads!   I think the result was about perfect.   If the Republicans had taken both the Senate and Congress Trump would have been unleashed to carry out all h…

Civilizing Trolls

Autumn (bless her heart) recently tried to rationalize with and civilize a resident troll.  I admire the effort and sympathize with the exasperation she must be going through with this guy.  But, trolls and idiots (often redundant) are the price that must be paid for a wide-open venue. …

An Unexpected Visitor

  I was surprised by the sound of the doorbell. I was not expecting anyone on this November evening. When I got to the door and turned on the light, I was met by my friend Slimey's face staring back at me. He was holding a plastic orange pumpkin in one of his clawed hands. I opened the door, a…

We're witnessing the end of Megyn Kelly's career at NBC.  The NBC executives have finally decided it's time to cut their losses and move on.  The only question is how ugly it will get.  That all depends on how well Kelly's lawyers protected her and how hard the NBC execs want to fight…
