My Country Tis of Thee, Sweet Land of Hypocrisy

Ed. Note: The editor’s note below was written before the last election. This essay is somewhat moot now, but it’s still interesting. Thus, I am publishing it now.Ed. Note: This was written a while ago, obviously, but it still holds true today. Even though Bush’s popularity rank has slipped drastically, there are still some people… Continue Reading

Kiki’s Disillusionment

Ed Note: I wrote this before the last election, obviously. Sadly, I was pretty fucking prescient.                                                                                                                                        4:23 p.m.    2/1/05 I was talking to my best friend after the Iraqi election. Full disclosure-I have stopped reading anything Bush says. Well, almost anything. I find that it upsets me too much to read it, or it sinks… Continue Reading

Drugs, Man

The thing that is supposed to cure me makes me feel worse.  This is the irony of taking antibiotics.  I avoid them as much as I can.  I hate taking antibiotics for many reasons, but I am desperate.  So, I buy the horse pills, and I swallow them.  I have to take two a day,… Continue Reading

The Grand Old (BIG Emphasis on Old) Party

Wow.  I would have thought that the GOP had hit rock-bottom, but that was before I listened to Gov. Bobby Jindal’s response to the State of the Union Address which it was in all except name today.  I had read the rousing criticism to Jindal’s speech, but I figured it was exaggeration.  Let me back… Continue Reading

Take Two and Call Me in the Morning

Amoxicillin, that is.  I have drugs now, and I am reluctantly taking them–knowing that the side effects will be unpleasant.  I can but hope that they will aid in my recovery. I am worn out from going to the clinic, so two old posts today.  The first is a lighthearted look at my love for… Continue Reading

And the Oscar Goes To…

I am still very sick.  However, I feel like writing something new.  Therefore, I am going to do a post about the Oscars.  Why the Oscars?  Well, first of all, they were on last night.  Secondly, it’s a light topic that I don’t have to think about too hard.  Thirdly, I want to write about… Continue Reading

No New Post For You

Still sick.  I have the lovely taste of phlegm wedged in the back of my (very sore) throat.  Still coasting by on old essays.  This time, it’s about the dearly-departed comic strip, The Boondocks.  I loved that strip.  The essay below contains all the reasons why.  See, I can actually praise something rather than just… Continue Reading

In Praise of Huey Freeman

Ed Note:  The Boondocks is no longer with us in the cartoon form, and I haven’t seen the series, so I can’t comment about that.                                                                                                                                          6:31 p.m.   1/7/05 What’s this I feel coming on? Is it a rant? No, it’s a rave! How novel. How unexpected! I actually have something good to say about something… Continue Reading
