Put Some Gay In Your Day, Dallas!

Well, Let Me Say This About That

Well, Let Me Say This About That is an interesting twist on current events, as told by Dallas’ finest and funniest Craig McCartney.

Outrageous Redux

Well, the outrage warriors are at it again.  As usual, it starts with one thing about which some folks get upset, then some other folks get upset about the folks that got upset in the first place, followed by name calling and some of us—still tired from the last round—reaching for a bottle of Geritol. It’s daily now.  Sunday saw […]

A-Tisket, A-Tasket

Once again, it’s that time of the week when I sit down in front of the keyboard with some hot coffee in one of my favorite mugs and try to connect the dots of what’s going on in the world.  But this time, my thinking is pretty scattered, or at least more so than usual. My mind seems to be […]

Prose & Contests

When an exasperated Faye Dunaway as Joan Crawford said, “Why must everything be a contest?” in Mommie Dearest, she was only complaining about the recalcitrant Christina refusing to eat her meat.  How quaint when one considers the contests fate has in store for those of us, beleaguered as we are, in February.  First up is this football game which, super […]

Getting To Know You, Getting To Know All About You

Did you catch the latest installment in the Democratic Presidential Debates?  I didn’t.  Netflix has spoiled me for watching any series that I can’t binge watch, plus I am allowed to drop out anywhere along the way when I lose interest. When the first debates were held last June, there was interest a-plenty, even with an unwieldy field of candidates (a couple of […]

Let ‘Em Roar

“There are those, I suppose, think we’re mad, heaven knows, the world has gone to rack and to ruin.” The first time I heard those lyrics from Thoroughly Modern Millie sung by Julie Andrews marked the beginning of a long term love affair with the Roaring ‘20s. And while that movie was a soufflé, I discovered grit in The Roaring […]

Finding Scarlett Once Again

Last Sunday, December 15, marked the 80th anniversary of the Atlanta premiere of Gone with the Wind.  So, it should come as no surprise that I spent the afternoon curled up on the sofa in a fluffy robe and a cup of coffee for my pretty much annual visit with Scarlett, Rhett, and the rest of the clan.  (Pardon the pun.) The […]

Why Can’t They Be More Like Us?

Several years ago, Karl and I got the opportunity to see My Fair Lady on the big screen at the Castro theater in San Francisco. I’m not sure that Karl thought of it so much as an opportunity, more like part of the ongoing requirements of being married to me. If 2001: A Space Odyssey had been playing instead, those […]

Words From The Impeachment

Most everybody has some subject about which they know more than the average bear. These resident experts may be content just knowing that they know, or they may feel compelled to parade their knowledge for all to see. The hasty and often careless use of social media to communicate in what passes today for writing gives ample opportunity for the […]


It’s already on the record that I’m not a big fan of certain words that have come into common usage in recent years, such as “parenting” and “adulting.”  While I would almost never use either of those words except sarcastically, I pretty much embrace “ghosting” as it describes something contemporary with a somewhat new word.   In that spirit, I’d like […]

By Any Other Name

Well, we got through the first day of the impeachment hearings with no problem.  I stayed very attentive during the opening statements and through the round of initial questioning by the more professional counsel of the two sides.  But once we got to the five minutes a piece for each member of the committee (the in search of a sound-bite […]
