The Company You Keep

On Thursday, September 27, 2018, America was glued to their screens. Both Dr. Ford and Brett Cavanaugh were testifying before the Senate Judiciary Committee. People watched in restaurants and bars, on their phones, and even on airplanes. That evening, I did what most people do: logged on to the modern-day [...]

Four-Legged Adventures in my Neighborhood

I want to point out that I am neither a scientist nor a statistician. I say that because I am going to put some ideas out there, but in no way want to insist that these are conclusions. They are merely observations made by an idiot. Hopefully that disclaimer will [...]

Being Good Doesn’t Matter. Going Viral Does.

The Just for Laughs festival is the biggest comedy gathering in the world. Comedians apply like mad to get in, because managers, agents, and talent scouts aplenty attend the showcases. Controversy plagued the event in 2018, however, because a fella named Darren Knight shit the bed performing there. Darren was [...]
