Let’s Not Demonize Hilary

Wed, 09 Nov 2016 20:11:20 +0000

I am proud to say that I voted for Hillary Clinton — a principled woman who had to put up with a lot for over 25 years of her public life. I know people are going to nitpick about what a flawed candidate she was — that’s only natural. But she is what she is. […]

REVIEW: Netflix Documentary “Making a Murder”

Sun, 14 Aug 2016 18:53:23 +0000

(A few months ago I wrote this response to the Netflix documentary, Making a Murderer and forgot to post it). Some random thoughts: Family members were the stars of this series. We saw so much of them! They were strange to look at, and not particularly interesting. Like mole people. Nice but dull. The series […]

Beware the auto-renewal beast!

Mon, 27 Jun 2016 03:05:17 +0000

Call me a procrastinator. I plead guilty. (I have also been very busy with a move and a job search). For a while I have been meaning to transfer my domain hosting from greengeeks to a slightly more powerful hosting service to accommodate future  web projects. I kept delaying the decision for 2 years (costing […]

See also: Index of all Social Media Posts Probably the most interesting question about the Trumpification of USA is how many TV entertainment outlets will refuse to invite TRUMP THE INSULT DOG on their show — damn the ratings and ad dollars. Lorne Michaels, Stephen Colbert, the Today Show, The View, Jimmy Kimmel and Jimmy […]
