I like cops. I once tried to help control a riot -- we needed the cops to restore order. I will forever be grateful for their presence that day. My father wrote a book on the history of modern police. (Sorry it's out of print). But cops and the entire criminal justice system need to change.
Covid-19 has forced us to replace sports with documentaries about sports. Kills time, but fucks up the betting. ESPN played "The Last Dance", Michael Jordan's ode to himself, and 30 for 30's series on Lance Armstrong practically back-to-back.
I was a little fat social outcast. Who knew I would grow up to be The Man.
The democrats cried "fascist" like the boy who cried "wolf" and it sucked all the power out of the word. I thought it was stupid at the time, and I still do.
With this pandemic, it's morning zoom and night. By that I mean I'm lucky enough to be on non-stop conference calls with Zoom -- the best of the fucked-up softwares that make every virtual meeting feel like it's taking place in a busy bus terminal.
Let me tell you what will scare the fuck out of anyone with a brain and a sense of history -- a little teeny, tiny book my father gave all his children when Trump was elected.
I must confess and probably apologize... I'm a body-size bigot.
Valentine's Day has always sucked. Every girl in kindergarten didn't want to be my Valentine, and 50 years later it hasn't gotten any better.
This is a good time to remember the "Founders." But if one more wanna be GOP "thinker" tells me he "believes in" the Constitution, I'm just going to take a shit on his shoe.
Twenty years ago, Prince made hits and people partied their way into the 21st Century. At midnight tonight, we are going to a new decade, but there are no songs, no anthems to celebrate the number.
