sad, but true.

The Sean Bell verdict is in. Why am I not surprised? I can’t even talk my way out of a traffic violation, so how does one explain firing 50 bullets at an unarmed man? I’m not sure why, but it seems that more times than not, cops are able to slither their way out of […]

things fall apart.

I didn’t get a chance to catch The Break-Up during its theatrical run, but I’ve grown to love this movie via HBO. Have you seen it? Well, as I sit here battling my latest bout of writer’s block, I’m watching it, yet again, and I must admit that I learn something new each time I […]

who?!

Whomever thought up the idea of tax returns should be stoned. If anyone from the IRS is reading this blog, I’m like totally kidding! n. o. t. I am in receipt, calculator, folder hell and I’m hating everybody right about now, especially myself for waiting until today. Hey, it’s Friday. Bill Maher will be on […]
