Happy Fathers Day or The War on Men

Sunday, June 15, 2014

The war on women is a joke.  There is a bigger war on men and I am going to use Fathers Day as one of the examples.  People have to be blind, ignorant, or both if they cannot see how in almost every aspect of life men’s lives that they are valued less.   In the […]

24 Not 24

Saturday, May 3, 2014

I am a fan of 24. 24 did very well because it appealed to a particular demographics with particular tastes. It is not that 24 will not do well now but it is no longer 24 if is not 24 hours long. Those who appreciated the second for second format are going to be disappointed […]

Best Two Minutes of the Year

Saturday, May 3, 2014

No, I am not talking about anyone’s sex life. It is the running of the 140th Kentucky Derby. I am not encouraging gambling but it is a very exciting event when you have a stake in it. It only takes $2. The Triple Crown has been a long tradition in my family. My grandfather was […]

Automat Comeback

Monday, March 31, 2014

Anyone remember the original “fast-food?” They were called automats. The food was ready-made and waiting so you do not have to. They were for lack of a better description not machine but rather human operated massive full wall vending machines. There were little shelves behind windows that had “fresh” food on plates.

Friday, March 21, 2014

Target, Barbie, commercials, models, magazine ads, all set up women to impossible standards, unhealthy lifestyles and choices. Wah, wah, wah. People wonder why there is a war between the sexes.

The Elephant in the Room

Thursday, March 13, 2014

So, I see by my posts and lack of comments that there are many that will not address the elephant in the room. Comment damn it. That is what this blog is about. Many are afraid to bring up the elephant in the room, that is what I do for you. It is already there […]

Pray for Ben Sauer

Sunday, March 9, 2014

This is a break from the norm but it has become important. About 3 weeks ago I started communicating with Mindy Sauer about her son Ben. Ben has a tumor in his brain and she asked for thoughts and prayers, now about 20,000 people have responded. Ben was featured in the Buffalo News today, as […]

Golden Jubilee of Wings

Friday, March 7, 2014

Some fun information and scattered thoughts. Wings or Chicken Wings but not Buffalo Wings, buffalo, contrary to popular folklore do not have wings. I do not know anyone from Buffalo that calls them Buffalo Wings. 50 years. WOW! congratulations! There is little doubt in my mind that “The Anchor Bar” is the first restaurant that […]

Spike Lee Racist

Thursday, February 27, 2014

As a kid I spent some summertime in Brooklyn visiting my Uncle and I do not remember where he lived being a “black neighborhood.” So I guess the blacks moved in, the whites moved out and now are moving back. I cannot imagine the media feeding frenzy that would have occurred if some white person […]
