Fidel Castro and Florence Henderson Have a Conversation in The Afterlife
(Author’s Preface: Since the news broke regarding the death of two very disparate personalities, Fidel Castro and Florence Henderson, I knew an unconventional tribute was in order.

#NotAnotherC(abrini)G(reen) is our Chicagoan plea to make Donald Trump's America racism-free!
When it comes to hiding our past transgressions, Chicago is up there with Where’s Waldo?. Our fair city has more body mounds than Arlington and more skeletons in her closet than Vincent Price. The Cabrini-Green Homes was the Chicago Housing Authority’s (CHA) attempt to corral nearly 15,000 poor minority citizens into 3,607 cramped apartment buildings. It subsequently... Read more »

Dystopia Trump: In the shadow of a man who has no use for me, I still sing "I am what I am"!

Dystopia Trump: In the shadow of a man who has no use for me, I still sing "I am what I am"!

My One Plea for All Rational People on the Morning of the 2016 Presidential Election
Though it soothes my heart to know that this is one of the last things I will write about this tempestuous election cycle, it is also the one that is written on the edge of the proverbial cliff. For months upon months, we’ve been subjected to a candidate who violates individual rights, treats human beings... Read more »

How I was raised to be a decent human being (or "F**k you, Donald Trump!")

How I was raised to be a decent human being (or "F**k you, Donald Trump!")
Unless you’ve been living under a particularly resilient and well-insulated rock for the past few days, you will undoubtedly have been following Donald Trump’s further descent into the cesspool of his own creation. I won’t bore you by going over the details that you’ve been bombarded with ad nauseam, but I’ll summarize the key points.... Read more »

A short statement from Bette Davis, in anticipation of tonight's Presidential Debate (Part Deux)

A short statement from Bette Davis, in anticipation of tonight's Presidential Debate (Part Deux)
(Taking live notes and blogging about the debate immediately after almost gave me an aneurysm, so I will most certainly not be doing that tonight. Instead, I thought I’d share with you a very poignant, and surprisingly apt, little musing from famed actress Bette Davis, cobbled together from various sources. Enjoy!) “[Mr. Trump]… There is...

"Words Matter" even when "Chicago is a War Zone": Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump do battle in the first Presidential Debate of 2016
(I watched the debate on NBC, as a peremptory note) I don’t often like to watch political debates, as they usually make me feel like I’m going to pass some tainted Oysters Rockefeller. Yet, and I think millions will agree with me, this debate was the exception. We have been waiting to see these two... Read more »

Prelude to a Debate: Clinton’s new ad highlights Trump’s blatant misogyny

Prelude to a Debate: Clinton’s new ad highlights Trump’s blatant misogyny
Usually political ads are the same shit tied up with a different bow. One candidate attacks another, usually about something financial or moral, and hammers on it until you start to feel for the poor sucker who’s getting ripped a new one. As I watched Hillary Clinton’s new ad highlighting Mr. Trump’s entangled relationship with... Read more »
