Hey guys,


How are we all doing? Good, I hope.


Today I am blogging to you in freezing temperatures. It’s the first day in three that the sun is absent and the sky is grey. Alas, my kitten is learning to go outside so I have to keep my front door open at all times.



Anyway, that’s not my news…

So we started to refer to music we wrote that sounded like Shellac, the Jesus Lizard, Hammerhead, and Tar as "Midwestern." The commonly applied label for...

Decades ago, when I was less discreet and less traveled, I engaged in a brief war of words with a reader about the virtue of Americans sending money (and guns) to other countries, from the safety of their own.
