Amuse Me, Please!


” I’d kill to be able to write again” the sad Writer with a serious blockage problem said to the other writer who had never suffered in such a state before.

” Do you think that could actually work, really?” said the Other Writer.

” I’m getting desperate, I’m willing to try anything” the Blocked Writer said as she wiped the back of her shaking  hand over her eyes.

She sobbed.

The other Writer took her friend’s hand away from her eyes. ” Do you really think that could work? Really?”

” I’m so desperate. And what do  you know? You’ve never been through something like this.

” You’re right about that”, the Other Writer said as she pulled the knife from her jacket and slid it across the Blocked Writer’s throat.

The Other Writer caught her in an embrace before the Blocked Writer fell to the ground.

” This could be like the apple a day thing. Thanks.”




As much in the same way all of those yellow flags turned up at the Dawning of The Teabagger Party, the newest battle cry to be screeded out over the interwebs is


There is no flag for that one.

Right now there is a huge donnybrook in the Democratic party involving Superdelegates and their votes.

There’s an idea that Superdelegates should vote with the WILL OF THE PEOPLE.

So no matter how strongly they feel about a candidate and why their vote actually belongs to THE WILL OF THE PEOPLE.


Once I was sitting at a table with some friends who by any standards are well educated, well read and well traveled.

That was they day I learned that Mars stops turning all together and THEN it begins to rotate BACKWARDS and communications systems all over the world fail.

I was stunned, speechless and all I could think to say was that if they found ice on Mercury I guess anything is possible.

The wagging fingers came out, and I was gently yet firmly told that ” idea” was so silly. Where did I hear it?

NASA I said.

There was lots of winky, winky isn’t she funny looks shot around the table and the topic was changed.

My point is, at that table the majority of people at that table believed Mars all of the sudden stops, and then it starts to spins backward and when it does your cell phone, laptops and microwave ovens fail.

THE WILL OF THE PEOPLE determined this.

So it must be right and true.

I thought you should know.
