CDC’s Rochelle Walensky paves the way for a racism vaccine

Yeah, yeah, I’m being hyperbolic. No apologies, though. If Walensky is going to make preposterous claims, I can make them too. What we know is this: racism is a serious public health threat that directly affects the well-being of millions of Americans. As a result, it affects the health of our entire nation. Racism is…

Gallows humor is psychopathic

“You are the least sunny person I have ever known.” -a co-worker’s observation to me, circa 1995 Oh yeah, I’m dark.  Less so now, but in extreme measures during my younger, drinking days when my gloom could escalate before blowing up into gargantuan explosions of bleakness. The problem with my a lifelong proclivity for the…

Vaccine porn

It is sadly, a thing. Known interchangeably as vaccine signaling and vaccine romanticism, vaccine porn is growing more ubiquitous as April 19 approaches.  Vaccine porn floods the social airwaves like a noxious cloud.  Vaccines as a tool for resumption of “normalcy” and all that such a thing entails;  glorious vaccines saving us from a virus…

NFL retirees gone wild

Turns out the murder/suicide of 5 people in South Carolina on Wednesday night was the violent handiwork of former NFL cornerback, Phillip Adams. He had been retired since 2015 and his comeback appearance was wrought with pure malice and tragedy and left a trail of deaths, including 2 children. The 32-year-old fatally shot himself after…

Sadiq Khan seeks to institute the new British Femmepire

London Mayor and smart internationalist ethnic contribution to the Brit political playing field, Sadiq Khan, is laying down the law to men. Stop acting like…men. Short of the British government handing out surgical clippers for the mandatory self-castration of all XY representatives of the gender pool, Khan appears intent to pathologize masculinity by decree. His…

Maya Echols warns against Derek Chauvin acquittal

Maya Echols said this. And most of you, especially people who would peruse tragic dog video, are saying to yourself, “Maya who-what?” The vast celestial world of internet influencers has diverged rapidly from mainstream American (adult) culture, and many digital quasi-celebrities are not household names.  Every once in a while one of them contributes a…

We are all rich now

I left a comment on another blog Saturday morning while my mind was fresh, rested and expansively obnoxious.  One of the greatest joys in the world is sleeping really well on a Friday night, something I didn’t experience until my 50’s. The post I responded to was simply a Latin phrase which translates to, “That…

Introduction of a new category: Aphoristic Modality

I really like, very nearly love, aphorisms. I am not a long-post-writer type of blogger. I’m into brevity and efficiency.  I take pride in conveying maximal narrative with as few words as possible. In real life, I’m not a talker and I get very drained when people are infatuated with their spoken word.  This mentality…

Potassium George and the dialogue of race

Much of the interpersonal tension in today’s society stems from those conflicts which we believe should epitomize dialogue versus whether they accurately or deservedly represent said dialogue. Which leaves open a very key interpretation: “My reason for why should be used as a fulcrum about is correct, and your reason for…
