Like Kryptonite For Hypochondriacs

Roughly 1 in 133 Americans have Celiac disease, the rest of the Glutenphobiacs read too many “alternative” lifestyle articles.  And here’s something else, just because: quinoa just doesn’t taste that good, no matter what you say. I all but eat this stuff with a spoon, and if you don’t then, well, the answer to your question is: yes, Chuck’s bread tastes better than yours.

Skiing Santa

Have you been to Driggs, Idaho?  If you have, then you’ll know this is pretty much run of the mill stuff.  I pinched these from my friend Teresa, who lives there. The name of guy on the skis is Jesse Cooke, and right now he’s my hero. These pics will go viral momentarily…

Christmas Commentary

Merry Christmas, My Friends

Another year, another Christmas, another opportunity to thank those of you who make time in their days to see what kind of drivel I’ve posted this time, and also to those of you–and I know that in many cases you are both of these–who put forth the effort to share with the rest of us, to entertain us, educate, titillate, agitate, and inspire us with your work, your examples, and the small truths of your lives within which we see reflections of our own. Thank you for it all, and regardless of how–or even if–you celebrate the holiday, I hope it is a good one.

F*ck Donald Tr*mp

donald-trump-hairNot long ago I decided that I would enter the same comment beneath every article, essay, or blog post that mentions his name, no matter how humorous or interesting or disgusting Three short words that echo his nuanced, thoughtful response to the great issues of our day:

F*ck Donald Tr*mp.

It’s short, it’s sweet, it’s as straight to the point as a giant wall in the desert.

F*ck Donald Tr*mp.

Try it. The sensation is a little heady, a little intoxicating, like four shots of smooth, cheap Canadian whiskey poured over a couple of ice cubes in a cool, wide highball glass.

F*ck Donald Tr*mp

You really want to get in on this, to be part of this movement from the ground floor. Imagine a world in which every media mention of him was followed by a cacophonous roar of

F*ck Donald Tr*mp.

It would be just like every day was Christmas, and what a wonderful world that would be.

and here I go:.Fuck Donald Trump. In fact, I”m going to make a post of it, maybe try to start a movement….
