North Koreans, Pissed At Chuck, Launch Bomb Strikes
I guess I’ve pushed it to far, making fun of North Korea. They’re coming for me, with everything they have. Meanwhile, in the bowels of hell, the old madman is laughing, and I’m just stuck here warily watching the skies.
The Black Swallow of Death
I know, you’ve missed me–I’ve been buried in real-world work again–but I’m swimming towards the surface. In the meantime, here’s a transcript, with some additions, from a Facebook post that’s making the rounds–a story too fascinating, exciting, and (sadly) unsurprising to not share with you. Do you know who this is a photo of? Chances…
War On Christmas: New Offensive
Victory is imminent. Support the troops!
The War Is Real
I know it’s tough, taking your teabagger neighbor seriously; you know, the one who spends all those hours alone on the overpass just outside of town, dressed in a colonial costume, flying a Gadsden flag and dangling a homemade banner that reads “Impeach O’Bama” over the interstate.

Nor does the human spirit move without great difficulty against all the apathy of conformist thought, within one’s own bosom and in…
December 29, 1890: Wounded Knee Massacre
While we’re all sitting about in our mid-Holiday malaise, drunk on sugar and fat, filled with drink and feasting and friendship and song, it should be mandatory to sober up for a moment or two and give some thought to one of the great, horrific, historical moments of our very checkered American past.

An American, Too
I found this interesting sign during a recent google adventure, and it led to some interesting research. Frank Tanaka immigrated to the USA in 1903, when he was 16 years old. Twenty-nine years of hard work later he opened a popular Japanese restaurant in Salem, Oregon and became a respected businessman. His story, told on…
