Marion Jones is in Prison. Don’tcha Feel Safe?

That was the punchline of a joke that Chris Rock made when I recently saw him at the Hard Rock in Hollywood, Florida.

How To Say What You Really Mean (Without Saying What You Really Mean)

Everyone knew this political race was going to get slimy and gross and increasingly disgusting as it progressed.

Political Propaganda (It Needs to Stop)

I got an e mail last week that really pissed me off. Allow me to vent.
