Kevin Spacey, paraphrasing Edward R Murrow, said we get what we deserve. I think that is a great point of his, but it brings up a problem. You can’t operate a business at a loss and expect to stay in business, it just isn’t feasible. Money has to come from somewhere, and you can be… Continue reading Kevin Spacey – We get what we deserve
No, I do not refer to them as my PP. That would be juvenile, which is just funny as hell, and therefore not a serious form of humor. Bernie – He’s struggling to bring in the win in the south like I thought he would. He’s not losing by much, however, which is better than… Continue reading Political Prognostications
No, not Ze Germans. I mean Selective Service. I’ve been inundated with radio commercials lately talking about required registration for SS, SSS as they’re calling it now.

Hey guys, My son, Joshua, is participating in a fundraiser for his school. The funds will go towards the construction of the Lion’s Lair 2.0 Playground, which is not only a school playground, but a community one, as well. I actually helped build the original Lion’s Lair when I was in 9th grade, so it… Continue reading A Shameless Plug- And an appeal to your deeply seated guilt
This was a bit before our time, but perhaps you heard of it while growing up? I think it is something that would strike your sense of humor. The Bestseller Book That Didn’t Exist: how the author of a beloved Christmas classic pulled off the Hoax of the Century
