Well, Let Me Say This About That
Alabama (Again)

Have you seen those irritating commercials for that home décor website in which ordinary people order some stuff online, get very pleased with themselves and then do a mic drop with their cellphones? They then proceed to do their happy dance (badly), and all I can think is that they…

Paying Attention Pays Off

I never wanted to live inside a Dickens novel. Who would want to wake up in the world of Oliver Twist? Or Pip, Estella and Miss Havisham, for that matter? (Especially Miss Havisham.) But we’re not likely to look around and find any of these characters at Starbucks. It’s more…

Chicken, Anyone?

If you’ve seen Mommie Dearest (and, really, who hasn’t?), you’ve been exposed to the indelible image of Faye Dunaway as Joan Crawford taking the gardening shears to her rose bushes while muttering “box office poison” with every gasp of air. But Joan wasn’t the only one on that infamous 1938…

Shocked, Shocked

Calling George Carlin

Lord, I miss George Carlin. He did a bit years ago that has stayed with me, as no one has ever deconstructed language the way he could. In it, Carlin talked about how the condition we now refer to as PTSD was originally termed “shell shock” following World War I.…

Panic In Year 2017

It’s about these hurricanes. Too many people’s lives have been upended because of Harvey, and Lord knows how many more lives will be with Irma. Of course, living in Dallas, we’re far enough away from the Gulf (at least for now) that we only got some rain and cooler weather…
