Do they really think I want to join the 45 CLUB?

A few days ago I received an email from the Republican National Committee. No big deal. I usually get something from them every day. I almost immediately hit delete, but this one caught my eye. They’re forming a new club and would like me to be one of its charter members. Get this: We would... Read more »

It's time for some new concert blood at Wrigley Field

It’s not easy to fill an outdoor sports stadium for a concert. Most football stadiums hold sixty to seventy thousand people. Even the smaller baseball parks sit in the mid-forty thousand range. To get a sell-out crowd you need to find an act popular with the masses that has enough discretionary income to purchase high-priced... Read more »

Indictments would be a good way to honor the one year anniversary of the insurrection

One year ago today. Three hundred sixty-five days. Today is the first anniversary of the insurrection at the United States Capitol building. “Patriots” stormed the building to try to subvert the will of the American people. They unsuccessfully tried to overturn a presidential election. They unsuccessfully tried to overturn our democracy that began in 1776.... Read more »

Michigan running back Blake Corum uses his NIL money to help Ypsilanti's needy have a better Thanksgiving

Tomorrow on Thanksgiving. While many of us will be thankful with our families surrounding a table filled with turkey, stuffing, cranberry sauce and pumpkin pie, so many more will be struggling to get by. No turkey. No stuffing. No cranberries. No pie. No family. No wonder there’s so much sadness and depression this time of... Read more »

Which celebrity Medicare expert do you believe?

It’s the most wonderful time of the year. No, not Thanksgiving. No, not Christmas. It’s that month-plus long time when you can choose from various Medicare coverage plans. That means until the end of the year, we’ll be inundated with commercials that tell you to check your zip code to see if you qualify for... Read more »

Shepard Smith should replace Brian Williams on "The 11th Hour"

There’s only one television program that I consider must-see tv. It airs Monday-Friday at 11 pm eastern/10 pm central on MSNBC. Brian Williams hosts “The 11th Hour.” The end of the day recap of the news you can find anywhere. The conversations with panelists of national journalists, authors and politicians you can also find in... Read more »

Rod Stewart's new album "The Tears of Hercules" is unlistenable

I wanted to like it. I really wanted to like it. I have a love/hate relationship with Rod Stewart. I love his early music. His work with Jeff Beck is brilliant. His first few solo albums are outstanding. Faces was a great band. “Maggie May’, “Reason to Believe”, “Mandolin Wind”, “Stay With Me”…I can go... Read more »

Jake from State Farm should stop hanging with Aaron Rodgers

By now we all know the sordid story of Green Bay Packers Quarterback Aaron Rodgers. He lied about getting the Covid vaccination by saying that he was immunized against the virus.

    My so called friends think it's time to edit this section. After four years, they may be right, but don't tell them that. I'll deny it until they die! I can't believe I've been writing this blog for four years. It started as a health/wellness thing and over the years has morphed to include so many things that I don't know how to describe it anymore. I really thought this was going to be the final year of the blog but then Donald Trump came along. It looks like we're good for four more years..God help us all! Oh yeah...the biographical stuff. I'm not 60 anymore. The rest you can read about in the blog.
