mussolini trumplini

Nov. 13, 2016 The reality of the new world order is clarifying with this morning’s headlines. The Trumpies are reaching out to the right-wing parties in France, Germany, Hungary and Poland. Putin’s Russians have acknowledged that they were “in contact” with the Trumpies throughout the campaign. And the Trumpies are getting chummy with Erdogan in Turkey,

Play Nice Don't Be a TRUMPiE!

  On Monday (the day before election day) I checked the calendar and saw that this coming Friday is Veterans’ Day. It reminded me that I had met my wife on a Veterans Day weekend exactly twenty years ago in a writing workshop at a rustic retreat in the Santa Cruz mountains. My wife likes

When Donnie Goes Trumping Home

11/4/16 Update: With five days to go, it’s too late in the game to put the new Comey is a Trumpie bumpersticker up for sale.

9/14/16 Discouraging news on the Trump front, with polls showing him gaining in key states. Yet more articles on his appeal in my home area, from Youngstown to Johnstown and everywhere in between; Clinton down with pneumonia, zero results so far on my novel promo efforts, a hatchet job on my home town on YouTube.

Trumping Right Along -Journal

9/8/16 It’s been an interesting month on a personal level. I wrote a couple weeks ago about our trip to Pennsylvania for my 50th high school reunion, and since then we’ve visited my wife’s family in New York over the Labor Day weekend. Two red-eye trips in the same month is enough. In other news,

Sept. 7, 2016 This evening I watched the NBC special program, the Commander-in-Chief (C–I-C) Forum, where they interviewed Hillary and Donnie. The premise of the program was how the candidates would perform as President and C-I-C of the U.S. Armed Forces to keep the world safe. Both candidates are boomers (Hillary is 69, Trump is

Trump Piñata

Not much to say, blog wise, but I just received this video of me whacking Trump at a friend’s 70th birthday party. I haven’t whacked a piñata since junior high school. Had to post it. Scott

50 Years and Counting

I’m back home in California after a week in Pennsylvania for my 50th high school reunion. New Castle Senior High (NeCaHi). Class of ’66. The Red Hurricanes. I’d always wondered why our teams were “Red” Hurricanes, and over the decades had asked around when I was back if anyone knew, but nobody I talked to
