“This should end the comparisons to Carter, and generate comparisons to Nixon…” – Huckleberry, November 6, 2012 @ 22:42 CST I wrote this on The Re-Affirmation of His Grand Ascendancy Election Night in a blog comment shortly before the fix was in the race was called in favor of our Simple Affirmative Action President. In […]
Another birthday has come and gone, proving the Doppler Effect provides a wider range of influence than the science books credit. With 33.3 percent of the 2013 in the books, I can safely say it’s going no better than 2012, but I can’t say it’s going any worse, so there’s that. Speaking of 2013, where […]
I usually like to kick these things off with a quip, or some sardonic, “Joke, Karpov!” observation to ameliorate the obvious and to mitigate the tugging, torsional twisting away of the Great Sweater of Our Western Civilization, in the same way that nitrous oxide makes a root canal tolerable.

So someone atop an ivory-tinged tower in Brussels thought it’d be a super swell idea to take up fiduciary banditry through a Rube Golderberg-esque stratagem of bailouts and deposit seizures, hoping no one would notice because no one gives a damn about the […]
100 years ago, the future was large, expansive, and brimming with possibilities on the promise that we stood at the precipice of a nearly infinite number of frontiers waiting to be explored.
