Everybody’s talking about it and no one is doing a darn thing about it. No, it’s not the weather. It is our tax system.

It IS Televised

I was enjoying some old jazz and R&B on the radio the other day and was taken aback to hear a classic Gil Scott-Heron composition. The Revolution Will Not Be Televised. And it struck me how that incorrect statement has changed the world around us.

The end of an era.  No, I am not talking about sentient beings in politics.  Although…

For most of my life, there was a monthly event that titillated young boys.  And, I am sure it excited  some that failed to grow up.  Starting with its “inventor” – Hugh Hefner.

Deadly Purple?

Taking that purple pill?  Well… maybe it’s time to reconsider.

I admit it.  I’ve never had a problem with acid reflux.  Oh, sure, once or twice a year, when I was sick, it’s been a very short affliction.  So, it’s easy for me to say stop.   But, even if it’s not easy to say stop- I’m telling you STOP RIGHT NOW!
