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.

Her Address Is Heaven Above

I’ve written a letter to Lilibet:  Dear Lilibet, Your rather sudden departure last week has taken many of us a bit by surprise.  But then I suppose you already know that if you’ve got good Wi-Fi and had time to watch what’s been going on in your former realm. Hopefully, you’re getting settled comfortably into your new digs.  Are you […]

The Lady Is A Trump

Bless his heart.  When Lindsey Graham is supposed to talk, he won’t.  When he shouldn’t talk, he does. The battle wages on between Graham and the Fulton County District Attorney in Georgia over the subpoena requiring him to testify.  But Graham took time off to appear on Fox News and put a silver wedgie in his mouth.   “If they try […]

Above & Under The Law: Are They Different?

“No one is above the law,” Attorney General Merrick Garland has said so many times that the verb “reiterate” is taking sick leave for exhaustion from extensive usage by reporters.  I suppose it’s true as is the directional flip side that everyone is under the law.  But it does seem that some of us are little more under that law […]

Rebel With A Cause

He had played the game before and succeeded.  Sprinting to the stage in 1955 when Bette Davis announced that Marlon Brando had won the Oscar, he passed Humphrey Bogart in an aisle seat on the way to the stage—the same Bogart who had gotten the award three years earlier when Brando had not won for A Streetcar Named Desire. But […]

Olivia Is The Word

In a week where there is so much to choose from, I can’t really gather my thoughts and present them before hitting the one thing that happened that really stuck in my craw.  And not for the first time, it was Texas senator Rafael Cruz.  I call him that because I don’t use chummy nicknames with people I don’t know, […]

The Boomer Strikes Back

This week, I ran across an unsolicited self-help article clearly designed for the remaining Baby Boomers who want to be led “into a successful 21st century!”  It was written by a Gen-Xer clearly striving to be as “cool” and “relevant” as a millennial.  I’m going to mind the generation gap here, although jumping into it might be fun, too. There’s […]

Who Is Josh Hawley?

Sometimes a story that is fresh on Friday is often stale by Sunday.  But I can’t let last week’s season finale of Insurrection:  American Crime Story go without just a bit of attention. This hearing was focused on tying up at least most of the loose ends from the preceding episodes, as a good finale should always do, while laying […]

Heat Wave

We’re having a heat wave.  While Irving Berlin’s “Heat Wave” is a tropical one, I’m not sure what we’re experiencing has anything to do with any exotic locale.  It’s one thing for it to be hotter than Hades in Texas, or even across the country, but when the spread of it is across the globe, that’s something else entirely. But […]

American Crime Stories

It had to happen, happen sometime.  After six previous hearings, this week’s episode of Insurrection:  American Crime Story left something to be desired.  Sure, there were more dots connected, providing more disturbing evidence of Trump’s efforts to overturn the 2020 presidential election results and his role in setting in motion the violent attack on the U. S. Capitol on January […]

Hutch Cassidy Doesn’t Do The Tap Dance, Kid

Someone recently said to me that there is so much going on in the world today that it shouldn’t be hard to find material for this column. That’s true, if one wants to say something. But then that’s different from having something to say. Take the abortion issue. It has so many facets to it that before saying anything about […]
