Junk Money

I dream worlds.  They are other worlds which I figure must be in alien realms or distant lands.  I used to dream about relationships which contained the characters in my life like one would view a play at a theater.  No more, I only see some bizarre world where I can’t explain what happens or […]

The Great Gapsby

Living in Los Angeles, I am inundated with stories in the papers about Frank McCourt, the owner of the Dodgers baseball team.   His fate seems to also be aligned with the other news in the form of the nefarious Momar Gadhafi of Libya as they both try to cling to power with institutional forces trying […]

The On-Off Exercise I tried to off myself once.  It was a year of transition for my family.  I had lived my whole life on the Westside of Los Angeles but my parents had decided to move over the hill to the San Fernando Valley.  They settled on an apartment where I had to share […]

If you remember a bunch of Vietnam war protestors getting together in Washington, D.C. to levitate the Pentagon in the 1970’s, you probably weren’t there. Or at very least, hadn’t drunk the same orange juice they did. In 2009, with unemployment officially near 10% and unofficially near 18%, the FHA nearing the red, retirement accounts […]
