Fawns of spring

Their noses leave a ghost impression as they press against the window of the train. Others scurry across the aisle to catch a glimpse, if only for a fleeting moment. The “oohs and ahha” bring a grin to this jaded face of mine, but I enjoy the scene before me none the less.

Am I a swing voter?

What can I do about the coming election? Will it be worthwhile for me to vote? During the last nationwide campaign, one before that and the preceding one as well, I felt my vote doesn’t really count. Why? Because I don’t live anywhere our political parties define as a “swing” constituency.

Power, pain, and psychopathy

In 2011, I submitted a joke to the public radio show “Prairie Home Companion” for inclusion in the annual “Joke Show,” and it got in! (A small claim to fame, perhaps, but I’ll take it.) Here it is:

“Knock knock!”

“Who’s there?”

“Bush and Cheney tortured.”

“Bush and Cheney tortured who?”

Thanksgiving in May

One of the lesser valued pursuits of spring is the annual cleaning out of the freezer.

This job clears the way for ice pops and ice cream during the summer months. And it is how it has come to be that I am roasting a turkey on this fine, mild spring day.
