I will be operated on to put a shunt in my brain on Aug. 6 at 8:30. a.m. at Evanston Hospital. I should be there about 24 hours or so. Then home to recuperate and then back to this by my birthday, I think, on Aug. 23. Thank you all for your best wishes and […]Read More UPDATE:A Report on Me: Wacky, wet and wobbly. It would be funny, but it’s no joke

He was a remarkable man for many reasons, not the least […]Read More Saints? Really? Where is heaven?
But don’t tell anyone. My plan is to celebrate the Nations Independence on July 6, well after President Trump taints the whole celebration by dragging his fat ass down on the mall or someplace to give a speech about his wonderfulness. This holiday has been preserved since Harry Truman’s day as president free. Sure, they […]Read More Three Cheers for the Sixth of July
