Hawaii is Not On Fire

I was born there. In Honolulu, 1956. I have the Kenyan birth certificate to prove it. I didn't return until we were living in Seattle, and I was about 35. It's an amazing place. Hard to believe it is part of the United States, really. Until you read history. Hawaii...

Howard Stern

I was mentioned on his show today. I got a text from my brother Richard: "Howard Stern mentioned you a bunch this morning." Huh. Hope he ripped on me. "Not really. Talking about Hall of Fame thing." Thx. I'll have to get a clip of that. "He rips on the National Radio...

TV is Dead. Long Live Video.

I can't tell you the last time I watched a TV commercial. Maybe it was the Super Bowl. Lisa and I binge on Netflix, Amazon, Showtime or HBO. No commercials there. And there's a virtual buffet of great programs. We will never catch up. Even though Comcast is our cable...

Could LSD be the next Medicinal?

If fake news were an actual thing, instead of a political cliche, I'd doubt the story I read today in the Wall Street Journal. I used to subscribe, but I canceled because it was just too expensive - and the Washington Post and New York Times have adjusted their...

A Quiet Place

Lisa and I went to see this movie tonight. It's hard for us to agree on a motion picture these days. She doesn't like the 3 S's. Sequels, Superheroes, Spaceships. And the more a movie is hyped, the more skeptical we both become. That rules out about half of what's in...

This Magic Moment

You can't see it all. You can't know it all. You can't subscribe to everything. There is so much at our fingertips, that the biggest challenge choosing what to spend our time doing. And it's hard to know when to say when. Do I even want to find out how many hours I...

The Nerve of Ebay

Got a strange pitch from eBay today. A warning that the Supreme Court is going to force online businesses to start collecting state sales tax! What a great idea. It's a little late don't you think? Now that malls all over America have closed, or are on life support....

Simple Concepts

I've been thinking about a few subjects not taught when I was in grade school, that would have been nice to know. The most obvious hole in the curriculum was money. There was a course called home economics, but that was for girls. I think it also covered cooking and...
