Mightier Than the Sword

Mightier Than the Sword

I am a message maker. I change minds. If I do my job well, the swayed minds I create don't even realize any change has occurred; they simply go on with their lives as if they had always believed what I told them to believe.

The March of the Frightened

The March of the Frightened

What began as a march of irrelevant, underemployed white men with statue-issues escalated into a national tragedy on the streets of Charlottesville, Virginia last Saturday.

Disgust and Politics

So I don’t particularly believe or disbelieve the latest scandalous Trump story about his ties to Russia and the existence of sex tapes with prostitutes. I’m waiting on more evidence.
