I get in the car to the store.  I have no windows or instruments, just an ignition key and starting button, seat and seat belt, and a laptop computer.  I close the door, put on the seatbelt, and insert the key.  After that, I log onto a system to ask that the garage door be opened....

            The cosmic mysteries of existence will be exposed in this column. But first, a few words from our sponsor, Print on Paper.             Ladies and Gentlemen, we are witnessing a...

There are many things that could be written about the French novelist, Raymond Queneu, who died in 1976, but that would detract from the things I want to write about The Sunday of Life.   The Sunday of Life is a silly, penetrating, witty novel about nothing much colliding with nothing much and...

Ready to read some humorous stories?  How about satiric stories?  My new book Chapter One provides all that and more.  And it’s a free download!   It gives you a chance to sample eight of my fiction books. You can read the first chapter (or more) to see if the novel strikes...

Did God have a wife? How irresistible a headline is that? That question reeled me in faster than Scarlett Johansson wrapped in nothing but the sports section, and that question was posed on MSNBC.com the other day. According to Oxford scholar, Francesca Stavrakopoulous (she'd have to be...

I'm putting out a call for sympathy for a deserving group that's often overlooked.  No, it's not zombies.  While zombies don't garner much sympathy, they're not overlooked.  Something about their flesh eating frenziness gathers and keeps your attention.  I do have sympathy for...

This is a little project which I've been working on in my spare time for quite some time, which is meant to actually be a form of satire. Who knows where it may lead me to? It might be a good idea if it could be published as a book, but I believe that I would rather print a book of aphorisms and...

Monday is Presidents' Day and you know what that means:  Presidents' Day sales.  Our Presidents are going to be on sale at heavy discounts.  Most of us can't afford to buy our own President so we're forced to timeshare them.  The last POTUS election cost like ten gazillion...

I think we've been looking at this NSA issue from all the wrong angles.  To sort of recap what's going on, the US National Security Agency is collecting information from and on American citizens, what some people term 'spying', to see what everyone is doing, whether they've been accused of a...
