Let There Be Plight.

According to physicists, an instant before the Big Bang, the universe was just a microscopic speck, and infinitely dense -- much like Obama's latest speech at the University of Michigan. At one point the president talked about how government is so...

Stumbling Barack.

I don't care how much money Obama and his liberal allies spend in the upcoming election, there are certain obstacles that will be very difficult to overcome. Here are a few:   Obamacare. Despite the fact that Americans told King...

Newt Will Fight. Romney? Probably Not.

Funny how life is. When I told everyone not to count Newt out, even though he was running near the back of the pack, I became a genius after he surged in the polls. Then, after a barrage of attacks, he went back down, leaving me a mere mortal once...

ABC is Sleazy Like Ex-Wife's Zeal..

Newt wasn't an ideal husband? Really? My God, I'm practically hyperventilating at such a concept. I suppose there was a time when this would've bothered me, but ever since Clinton, it's not a big deal. It's how well the person does the job that's...

Football and Corporate America. WHEE!

Lots of football the last few days. San Francisco and New York are going to the NFC Championship game. Baltimore and New England are in the AFC Championship game. Tim Tebow is going to church. Oh, and the Green Bay Packers are going nowhere. Did...

The First Lady of Phony.

I can only begin to imagine the amount of effort it would take for someone to become a bigger phony than Michelle Obama. It would be a Herculean task, to say the least. Make that a Herculean task ... and a bag of chips.   Lately,...

Sober Twelve Years.

I've been debating whether to write this post. I try to keep my personal life mostly out of these not-yet-ready-for-Pulitzer posts. But I decided I would, just by the off chance it could help somebody.   I'm twelve years sober...

Overthinking Can Be Dangerous.

Some years ago, I was channel surfing, and found myself watching Oprah! A guest was a Ph D from Harvard, who bought into the idea of ..., you know, when the aliens come here and abduct people. What do they call that? Oh, yeah, "alien abduction."...

My Best Buy Adventure: Part II.

So, I'm talking to the sales-geek at Best Buy. These people were very nice, by the way. I asked questions -- basically the same ones -- to three different employees, and got identical answers. That's pretty good. Also, no one tried to talk me into...

My Best Buy Adventure: Part I.

There's a popular myth that men don't like to shop. Not really true. It's just that we're not  particularly into drive-by shopping. We don't amble from store-to-store just to see what's inside. We tend to know what we're going to buy, and where...
