Goodbye ugly green left behind chair

Tonight I said goodbye to this Lazy Boy reclining chair. I’m thinking it’s circa 1970 and it came with our bungalow that we bought in 2000. We were the third owners of the house, but technically the second because the it was owned by a family who gave it to their daughter.

I had visions of him coming to my aid and then staying for several weeks beside my dead body until I was discovered by rescuers. You read about it all the time in the papers. ...more

David Ehrenstein, Chip Saltsman, and Puff the Magic Dragon Walk into a Bar

This was intended to be a short piece about how Chip Saltsman distributed a CD with the political parody "Barack the Magic Negro" set to the tune of "Puff the Magic Dragon," and how people were angry at him and Mike Duncan at the RNC got his days-of-the-week panties in a bunch, but I decided that to write something short and sweet was a) impossible for me to do and b) an insult to the intellectual integrity of this issue. ...more
