Brownstone living, especially areas that are a bit – or a bit more than a bit – “hood,” aren’t for everyone. I, however, find a lot to recommend such areas – and over 13 years living in Bedford-Stuyvesant hasn’t come close to changing my mind. 😉

You’re Going To Die

Posted in Humor, Musings, Society on August 6th, 2017

This is a simple fact. You’re going to die. Something in this world is going to kill you, me, and everyone else currently alive. This is a fact, an incontrovertible fact, a cornerstone of our existence.

You’re Going To Die

It’s the response to this facet of reality by so damn many people in America that makes this video funny, ironic social commentary, and a useful example of why things like Obamacare were always doomed to fail.

Simply and inelegantly put, too many inside America’s borders are cowards who fear death far too much to even live. Indeed, they fear their own deaths – inevitabilities each and every one – so much that they won’t even let others live their lives.

Bikini Interlude 21

Posted in Society on July 20th, 2017

Bikini Interlude – A More Traditional Edition

As is the case with almost all the Bikini Interlude posts, there’s really no real purpose to this post beyond providing myself and any who come here a brief interlude of beauty and a last taste of these pleasures as the bikini season ends for the year.  In point of fact, the only differentiator  between this Bikini Interlude and most of the others is that this one is actually focused  upon babes with more traditional bikini bodies.
