Apologies to xpat’s football befuddlement.

Haven’t been checking the comments carefully enough, because there have been so few lately.  Of course that “because” is unfair, since one reason that remarks have dwindled is that they weren’t read and responded to in a timely fashion.  Slow, … Continue reading

Obama is right!

“You don’t go out to dinner and then eat all you want and then leave without paying the check.” You know what else you can’t do in a restaurant, Barack?  You can’t say “put it on my tab” forever without … Continue reading

About the long absence…

…a bunch of factors are involved:  health, distractions, laziness, football bowl season.  But the main reason is probably my ever-growing disgust with our “culture” and its self-proclaimed mavens.  Watching society’s mortification and making quips about the rot briefly lost its appeal.
