The World Just Became A Better Place

A broadcaster acquaintance of mine used to say, and have on his old Website the maxim “A different world is possible”1. A variant form, related by a character in Carl Sagan’s sci-fi book and movie Contact — in response to an admission of unfairness — states a mind-numbing truism: “The world is what we make of it”. And now, the world is a better place. I know I will be called terrible ad hominin things for saying this.  And I don’t give a fuck.  But IMHO, the recent death of one of the most horrid and horrible humans to have ever...

Deplorable America

Let me make it clear here that I am NOT condemning in one broad stroke every Republican or even every single Trump supporter/voter.  ONLY those who participated in the attempted Trump-led insurrection on Jan 6 and those who support — even subsequently — the authoritarian-style coup attempt which (by my prediction) turned deadly over one of the biggest lies in American history, that Trump, who lost the 2020 election by over 7 million votes, actually won.

He’s a pampered millennial child who can’t handle losing and wants a participation trophy. He’s a coddled, out-of-touch elite who cares more about what his media friends say about...

US and Peele

a review of Us NO SPOILERS Us (2019) is the 2nd major film from 5 season “Mad TV” comedic actor Jordan Peele.   After the maddening demise of that beloved variety show, he collaborated with (Detroit’s own) Keegan-Michael Key on the Comedy Central sketch series “Key & Peele” (2012-15).  His breakout “black horror film” Get Out (2017) is only the 2nd horror film to win the Oscar for Best Picture. Wow. He could rest on his laurels, but that just wouldn’t be the route of a talented and maybe even brilliant filmmaker in the tradition of his heroes, including Rod Serling, Alfred...
