Why I Unfriended You On Facebook

Or am about to… Most people seem happy to collect as many Facebook “friends” as possible. Maybe it’s because with more people in one’s cue, there are more posts and a greater chance that someone might actually post something interesting or amusing or entertaining. But I’m not like that. I enjoy the posts from people… Continue Reading

Rowan County Clerk Kim Davis In Jail

We swear, Rowan County Clerk Kim Davis is one ugly woman- and we’re not talking about her appearance. She is the epitome of white trash: ignorant, stupid and arrogant.

Robin Williams Death

I never met Robin Williams, but like millions of others, I loved him, and had I known he was in such pain, I would have purchased a plane ticket, flown to San Francisco, got him to treatment, and when he was well enough, take him somewhere beautiful for a piece of pie- with ice cream… Continue Reading

Frank Underwood – House of Cards

House of Cards’ Frank Underwood was more interesting, mysterious and multidimensional before he became a murderer. Before he killed two people it was possible to imaging that somewhere deep in his dark, power-hungry soul there still smoldered some genuine, residual virtue from an earlier life.
