If Wishes Were Streetcars

The Wish Express, by Ruth Plumly Thompson – This could essentially be considered the author’s first book, although it wasn’t published in that form during her lifetime. Before she took over the Oz series from L. Frank Baum, she serialized … Continue reading

Sunrise, Sunset

Fiddler on the Roof – I’d been meaning to see this for some time, but the length put me off somewhat. I was familiar with some of the songs (and, in some cases, parodies of the songs), but not much … Continue reading

Disrupt the Corrupt

I’m going to try to write something about politics, which is something I’ve been thinking about quite a bit as of late. It seems that most of what I want to say has already been said, though; and when I … Continue reading

A Biden by the Rules

I watched the third Democratic debate last night, because I still do things like that. It was forever before they had the first commercial break, though, and sometimes I blurt out what I’m thinking and miss something, like Andrew Yang … Continue reading

Stand by Your Madman

I have to suspect that part of the reason Republicans have trouble distancing themselves from Donald Trump is that conservatism promotes loyalty to a leader as long as they’re officially on your side. There’s a reason monarchy and fascism are … Continue reading

Bernie Can’t Win, Trump Can’t Break Even, and Hillary Can’t Get Out of the Game

One political issue on which I’m somewhat divided is that of voting for the candidate you actually like (well, relatively speaking) versus voting for the person you think can beat the one you don’t like. A lot of the time … Continue reading

I’d Vote for Jesus, If Only He’d Been Born in This Country
