I sit and stare at the blank page for a while. Then I get up and run in circles, screaming and shouting. Okay, maybe that part is only in my head.

Then I sit down, put my fingers on the keys, and start with random thoughts. Once the swirly burlies are out of my head, I find I'm good to start something new.

A Children’s Crusade?





I have an opinion as to why Trumpopo is insisting public schools open during the first wave of a pandemic plague:

He made Betsy DeVos secretary of education for only one reason – to privatize our free public education, ensuring superior access to privilege by the wealthy. I’m not saying he or any human being had anything to do with this vicious virus, but I am saying he’s profiting by it as much as
