Profile Information

About Me:
Just a guy on the wrong side of fifty, I’m semi- retired, pseudo-serious, and sometimes literate. I've been on and off line since the days of DOS based bulletin boards. I suffer the ills of a half century of jump-shots,snapshots, and shots of bourbon.... Basel Hayden ....neat.

I’ve been to war and worship and nether came out in the wash.

I smoke too much. I pray too little. I write too slow. I music too loud.
Issues I Care About:
The failure of supply side. The shrinking of the middle class. The rush to theocracy by the Right.

Every Breath Bernanke Takes

Originally posted here and here.

I was wrong about Obama picking Clinton for SOS. I felt, and still think Bill is problematic. I guess the concerns of our indigent present trumps revisiting Clinton's indulgent past. But the press will run the numbers and the hard right will subtract and divide.

It all makes the cocktail hour murky. Which leads to supplemental consumption and mild depression before dessert. And bad poems approximate a sugar buzz.

Who's a socialist?

Originally posted here

I found this NYT piece interesting and disconcerting....

wintry mix

Originally posted here and here.

It's a "wintry mix" here in Chicago which, like vegetable medley, really sucks. I can't hit the bricks, and the power and cable lines are beginning to limbo, which leads to a likely loss of connectivity. Did I mention I hate ice? And the local weather babe says the whole damn week will be on the rocks. I prefer life neat.

I've added some puppy… Continue
