Sign of the Times

The two major historical events of my lifetime, both atrocities, come together at a local monument. Not to get all 9/11 Truther or anything, but it appears that Bob Woodward, the “hero” of Watergate, knew back in January that Trump was withholding information about the pandemic but chose not to publish it until his book […]

No Pain No Gain

A little social commentary displayed on a house down the street from my gym. I’m confused about whether this is an idealist or a materialist view of the world. The Dream comes from The Pain. The Vision Comes from Dream. So you start out with the physical and then stack one idea (The Vision) on […]

Genghis Khan for President

He meets the qualifications.

The Duality of Man

Hmm. The racist Tea Party flag and a Black Lives Matter sign.   I suppose he’s trying to suggest something about the duality of man, the Jungian thing.

The Center Held

So far the alliance between blacks and upper-middle-class suburban professionals that Joe Biden is counting on to win the election seems to have weathered the first round of social unrest. Trump’s approval numbers are approaching those of late second term Chris Christie. Just about the only thing the Republicans have left in their arsenal is […]

Mark it Zero

It’s a Bourgeois Town

The local bourgeoisie has discovered water soluble chalk. A few years ago, during Occupy Wall Street, or Black Lives Matter, chalking the sidewalk often meant that dozens of militarized police would roll upĀ  on you, throw you to the ground, and put you through central booking (before the judge offered the inevitable ACD). But now, […]
