To: My vast BLOGger audience---LOL!!!

Re: Another Southern tale like yesterday’s that I’ve actually written into my
THIRD screenplay.

Well then!! So nobody loves me, everybody hates me, I guess I’ll go and eat dirt. Ah to have Michael Moore’s polemical genius and populist pen, instead of my tendency toward didactic and bombastic pontification. I guess I like pontification. The stories are certainly beyond amazing. I have th...

Attending the Pendent Trend to Rend Humanity to a Brutal Bend of the River of Life
SENDING ESSENTIAL MENDING TO LEND OUR HAPPY TENDENCY FOR FRIENDSHIP A PENCHANT TREND, INSTEAD OF DESCENDING INTO THE PIT OF HELL ASCENDANT


A fundamental tenet of Koranic code is that God creates men as friends to each other. Thus, a Muslim may question the moral goodness of another without calling into question his worthiness as a fellow human. This formulation is roughly the same as the Christian notio...

ONE INNOCENT BLACK MAN IS FREE
Georgia’s Supreme Court Releases Marcus Dixon

The Supreme Court of Georgia has issued an historic decision, one that strikes a blow for justice instead of the all too typical opposite case. Marcus Dixon, a young man of charisma, style, brilliance, talent, and immense athletic prowess languished in prison for more than a year for the “crime” of agreeing to have sex with a high school classmate. She accused him of rape when her father savagely beat her, aski...

Pickle Payments: Dried-Up Trickle-Down Economics That Leave Wage-Earners with Sticks and Stones and Broken Bones
MOUNTING MOUNT OLIVE BOYCOTTS TO CHANGE THE WORLD

Saturday marked another instance, among hundreds of thousands of such cases that take place daily in different corners of the human condition, of unheralded social foment that portends irreversible changes in how we live and what is cooperatively possible for us to do. The situation at...

Evolution, Revolution, & an Invocation of a Consciousness Convolution Necessary for Survival
MAY DAY REFLECTIONS FOR APOCALYPSE AVOIDANCE


“We all start out as scientists,” Carl Sagan once stated, “every child born to discover the world anew in repeated shocks of awe and wonder,” akin to the scientist’s routine countenance of nature and her cosmic glory. I experience the privilege each day of repeating this amazement at even the most common occurrences. “I’m Atlanta’s cheapest date,” I ...

This Woman Gets Naked in Public to Save Us
HOW A FRAUDULENT MEDIA, FOR AN ASLEEP-AT-THE-SWITCH PUBLIC, FOLLOWS THE SCRIPT AND DOESN’T PAY ATTENTION


Helen Caldicott is an extremely attractive woman, a driven genius of Seventy Winters whose voice and humor are as piercing and haunting as her logic. She shares a Nobel Prize for her role in creating Physicians for Social Responsibility, and has garnered praise and awards otherwise essentially innumerable, in addition to writing copious pop...

The excellent entry a few days ago, about Adult ADD, has taken hold in my mind. My children are of an age that results in significant numbers of their peers being on powerful prescription drugs that are essentially addictive amphetamines and tranquilizers. This addictive epidemic occurs simultaneously as our taxes pay for a futile and brutal and stupid “War on Drugs” that more and more nations, where rational discourse has more cachet than here, are rejecting as policy or practice. Canada ...

Cues for All of Nature’s Hues, Blues Brewed Through-’n-Through into a Tasty Human Stew
PLAYING POOL AT A POLYGLOT KOREAN MEXICAN RESTAURANT


I’m a didact, as anyone who reads more than a few lines of my work guesses quickly. I’m also a garrulous guy, go figure! In the course of any given week, a hundred Asians come under my watchful gaze and lightweight Socratic tutelage. A score or more of Anglo, African, and Hispanic Americans join this larger Oriental cohort, at the interstices of my...

He Sang, and the Twang of His Language Rang With Truth and Power and Love
AN HONOR TO CALL HIM COUSIN, THE HOPE TO CALL HIM FRIEND


Through two happenstantial routes,I found out that today is Shakespeare’s birthday and nearly let this divert me from my final intended ‘Earth Day’ piece, in order to consider things literary, the big bungling hungry hope I have to present the stories as huge as “Hamlet” or as guttural as “Othello,” which so regularly emanate from my life’s miasmic fringes. I...

“Human Sacrifice Zones” and the Moans of Pain Inaudible from the Thrones of the Mighty
HISTORY, LAW, AND THE LAYERING OF HUMAN MEANING


The “Incident at Owl Creek Bridge”, by Ambrose Bierce---the best writer in American history, perhpas, and the “Old Gringo” of Carlos Fuentes’s book---should annually be a required text for all U.S. citizens. It tells of a wealthy Southern romantic, cut off from the human costs of his choices, whom a treacherous Yankee scout---dressed in Confederate gray...

Rise Up Children, Your Parents Will Follow
THE PRISON SYSTEM, THE SCHOOL SYSTEM, THE WHOLE FUCKING SOCIAL SYSTEM IS ROTTEN


This is not the BLOGessay I intended to post. I had a series of four environmental issues and environmental heroes pieces all planned out surrounding Earth Day tomorrow. I nearly posted a similar piece, as this has turned out to be, last week, about unfortunately typical vicious stupidity in Alabama’s schools, as usual promulgated by the State. A Birmingham ‘alte...

Thursday’s Earth Day: What are the Other 364?
WHEN PSYCHOLOGY SEES ECOLOGY AS JUST MYTHOLOGY, PREPARE THE EULOGY FOR HUMANKIND


The origins of the celebration of Earth Day are fantastic to remember---the culture and thought and ethos of oneness and abundance and impact, the idea that a single person might join with others to reform or otherwise improve the collective. The 1960’s were ending and the sobering and debilitating recognition of oil as a non-renewable resource had not yet begu...
