• A new day

    On a day that sees DOMA being struck down, and Prop 8 dropped, I find it ironic that if American society had been more enlightened 50 years ago, I probably wouldn’t be here. I’ve written about my father and his life before. He was a gay man from south Georgia…not a pleasant existence, I’m sure.

  • GOP, R.I.P.

    “We’re not generating enough angry white guys to stay in business for the long term.” Lindsey Graham This election marks the last time that the GOP will get this close to the White House. Locally they will continue to muddle along, and perhaps they’ll steal or suppress enough votes at some point to make it

  • The perfect candidate

    If you had to concoct the absolute perfect candidate for the GOP, one that embodies all the aspects of that fading brand, you would end up with Mitt Romney. Think about it. The GOP today exists for two reasons- to plunder the wealth of America, and to make Barack Obama a one-term president. Any other

  • Oh grow up…it ain’t 1978

    I was a high schooler in the ’70s, graduating in 1980. Those were the years where hard rock was king, and until punk came along (thankfully!), I was right there, listening to the testosterone overdose of loud guitars and misogyny, all though of course I didn’t hear as such then. Two of my favorites in

    It’s funny what you remember from your youth. When I was very young I spent every Friday with my grandfather, and he always listened to Paul Harvey on the radio. I don’t really recall what Harvey said, but he had a bit entitled “The Rest of the Story” that was kinda interesting, at least to

    Michael Davis, MC5 bassist, dies at 68 Michael Davis, the bassist of influential late 1960s rock band MC5, has died of liver failure, his wife said Saturday. He was 68. Kick out the jams, motherfucker! Whitney Houston never said such a meaningful phrase in her life. She never challenged authority. She never once used her

  • Dear god, let it be Santorum

    Like most people with a functioning cerebellum, my tolerance for the 2012 election has been used up. As the GOP flounders around trying to find someone, anyone willing to be utterly defeated by Obama, its gotten more than tiresome. Now the pollsters are seeing Rick Santorum in the lead. Praise be. Now I’m no fan
