Whose Ox?

You see, the thing about having principles and supporting policies and not personalities is that it frequently sets you athwart those more unmoored who float with the tides and currents of the moment. Like the nautical references? I have all the graces, among other things I sail and, now this is both funny and a …

Sausage Grinder of Snark (My Name is Norman Bates)

Of course you don’t get it. Maybe this will help. Hmm… maybe I didn’t warn you about the spoilers. As with everything else I hope it’s funny in an aha! Wait! What did I just see?! kind of way. I don’t do remote diagnosis and my personal pathologies of course color my judgements. Fish do …

Three Finger Salute

The sign is made by grasping your sinister pinky with your thumb, kissing the three erect fingers and raising them. I prefer the clenched right fist salute of The Internationale which represents the authentic voice of the working class and not some Hollywood construct but I’ll take what I can get, I’m a pragmatist. Besides, …

141st Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show

Well, this is quite a step down. The Faux coverage is awful, continually interrupted for commercials and focusing only on favored breeds. It fully justifies my attention to the UConn Huskies 100th consecutive victory last night in a game at Gampel which was closer than the score would indicate. There are 5 teams that could …

141st Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show

It’s once again time for that annual celebration of inbreeding and genetic disease that is the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show. Dogs have many admirable qualities including undeserved, unconditional love and should you have one in your temporary care I urge you to cherish it as I have mine (many over a century and a …
