Hey, Hey, holy mackerel! Cubs lose! Cubs lose! Last week, I wrote that it was no fun being a Chicago Cub fan anymore because the Boys of Wrigley Field have become an excellent team. Well, this week the Cubs played like the diamond doofuses that I grew to know and laugh as they lost two […]

Drats–I won’t be going to Scandinavia this year. Recently, I read a story which stated the Nobel committee won’t be awarding a prize in literature in 2018. However, two prizes will be handed out next year. I know I will have a better chance winning the Powerball or visiting Jupiter than winning a Nobel prize. […]

This post is not going about politics–I will comment about that most corrupt of corrupt subjects sometime around Election Day in November. Even though I am not into fortunetelling, I predict these are most likely the most important midterm elections in American history. If the Democrats win the Senate and/or the House of Representatives, President […]

Told ya. Earlier this year, I predicted the Miss America beauty pageant ratings would be in the toilet without the swimsuit competation. I was reading an article in the Variety website about Miss America, and I was right–the pageant drew a a million fewer viewers than last year, and last year’s ratings were nothing to […]

Now that the John McCain funeral is over, another famous person has departed–Burt Reynolds. I wasn’t a big Burt Reynolds fan, and I winced when I saw him pose in his birthday suit with that 1970s porn star mustache for Cosmopolitan. However, I liked him in Smokey and the Bandit. Smokey and the Bandit is […]

It’s Labor Day weekend. Time to do some relaxing from the Daily Grind. Maybe I need to have my head examined, but I have to admit it’s good being a working stiff. True, my current job is not the job I dreamed about in college. Back then, there is nothing I wanted to do more […]

Oh, oh, that shameful word is back–impeachment. Nowadays, it seems that every twenty years or so presidents are impeached. In the 1970’s, Richard M. Nixon resigned before he was impeached over Watergate. A quarter of a century later, Bill Clinton was impeached as a result of the Lewinksy affair. And now there is talk that […]

Normally, I tried to avoid writing about my personal life. I take the attitude that what happens in my household STAYS in my household. I know there are enough trolls, rats, snoops, and snitches in the cyberworld trying to find dirt on the rich and famous as well as the poor and the obscure. Besides, […]

Late summertime is a great time to notice, notice. . . . Have you noticed it is strange seeing school buses in late summertime? Have you noticed it is equally strange seeing NFL football–even meaningless exhibition games–in late summertime? Have you noticed late summertime is the time root beer floats taste oh-so-good?
