In the story of your life you aren’t always a hero.


“Wear Too Many Hats”

To those who live in the digital world
Think fewer not more.  Too many are 
Too quick to jump on.  To dispirit this and
Cast down that.  To venerate them and 
Revere those.  Led to think you are free.
Only to sanctify the histrionics of the impotent.

No need to have men in uniforms when you can create uniform fear.


Journalist, Reporter or Stenographer?

An all too common discussion (maybe diatribe is a better word) I hear is that the problem with news media is it’s biased. Many people act as if partisan subjectivity is a recent phenomenon. To those I’d suggest reading “The Twilight of Objectivity” by Michael Kinsley for some historical context.

“Times Building”

The next time you read or watch the news ask yourself who wrote it, a journalist, a reporter, or a stenographer? The problem arises when a person doing one of those jobs thinks, or tries to convince others, he/she is doing one of the other jobs. The current state of media isn’t due to bias as much as it is too many people trying to be something they aren’t.



You smile words that are 
Boorish, ostentatious, and whimsical
To explain it all away.

Your desire to sanitize through language
Is ineffectual and unmanageable.
I see through your malefic designs.

Words do not make one saintly.
The beatific are incorporeal.

Time is a Rate

We spend our time at various jobs to make money in order to spend our time somewhere else. We spend time doing one thing so that we can spend time doing something else.

“Weekly Rate”

Individuals and institutions scheme and scramble for our time. They plot and present a wide variety of distractions designed to develop a desire for the novel and a need to conform.


On Purpose & Meaning

“An outlaw can be defined as somebody who lives outside the law, beyond the law and not neccessarily against it.”

-Hunter S. Thompson-
