Last week, I did a Have You Noticed? post. In this edition of the Soapbox, I am going to do something I haven’t done in a year–a Boo/Yahoo post. The beginning of March. Yahoo. Even though March is not my favorite month, it is a lot better than February. And spring is just a few […]

It’s has been one busy week since my last post. Donald Trump was acquitted in the impeachment fiasco trial, the Kansas City Team With a Somewhat Politically Incorrect Nickname won the Super Bowl, the Iowa caucus was a disaster, radio gasbag Rush Limbaugh has been diagnosed with cancer and won the Presidential Medal of Freedom, […]

It’s Good to Be a Man

Rather than writing about the impeachment of President Donald Trump or Mr. Peanut (no, not Trump. Instead, the Planters mascot allegedly went to the Great Nuthouse in the Sky, though he will probably be back because you just can’t keep a good man or legume down), I am going to write a testosterone-filled post. Next […]

No Writing Today–A Stream of Conscious Poem

Today, I am suffering from writer’s block. Whenever that happens, I like to examine my more sensitive literary side and write poetry. Not surprisingly, I am going to compose another one of my stream-of-conscious poems: No writing today. I’m feeling Depressed That Christmas And New Years Came and went Quicker than Santa Claus Fleeing a […]

The new year has come. I didn’t make any New Years resolutions except one–I will try to make An Ordinary Joe’s Soapbox the best blog in the galaxy. Even though I know blogging has become rather passé, I still enjoy getting on my little soapbox and opining on issues that interest me. And I hope […]

It’s that special time of the year! Not only is it the last post of the year, it’s time to hand out the annual Joeys! I created the Joeys in 2011 to present awards in categories not normally seen in the “best of” lists in newspapers and magazines. There are no monetary compensation, medals, or […]

This is a continuation of last week’s post in which I list some of things I am not thankful during the Thanksgiving season. Leftovers. For about a week after T-Day, I will be eating such delicacies as turkey tetrazzini, chili con turkey, turkey casseroles, turkey pizza, and hot fudge turkey sundaes. Even though I like […]

These Are A Few of My Favorite Batman Villains

Drats–I didn’t get my Nobel prize in literature. I might drown my sorrows by going to see the latest Joker picture. Joker is not my favorite Batman villain. As played by Cesar Romero in the TV series, Joker struck me as a child to be a giggling, over-the-top clown rather than a giggling creep like […]

Too Wild and Crazy

Maybe it is appropriate that during the 50th anniversary of Woodstock that one of the giants of the counterculture and the star of Easy Rider, Peter Fonda, has succumbed to lung cancer. I saw Easy Rider some years ago on the late show. While I thought it was downbeat and heavy handed, it was Citizen […]

Weekend Bonus: What I Do During Hot Weather

Back in the mid-1980s, a hit song on the radio was ex-Eagle Glenn Frey’s “The Heat Is On”. This past week, the heat has been on in my neighborhood. I will admit this is far from the worst heatwave I have encountered. In 1988, there were weeks where the temperature soared over 100 degrees Fahrenheit, […]
