Bloodbath in Paris

You know what’s crazy? I’ll tell you what’s crazy. The Paris Terror Attacks. The AP breaks the news to me Friday afternoon on my computer DING! Huh? Then ABC news breaks into programming. The headline is startling. 18 people dead in a terror attack is all we know. Within hours, that number would double, triple, quadruple. […]

Drinking Beers on the runway

You know what’s crazy? I’ll tell you what’s crazy.™ Drinking beers on the runway at Los Angeles International Airport. Nobody would think about doing this now, but back in the day, before 9 1 1, before al Qaida, before Osama bin laden, we did the unthinkable.Back in college, on warm Friday nights, we’d go down […]

Just a job

You know what’s crazy? I’ll tell you what’s crazy™ The Job. I’m at the crime tape. It’s a warm November day. The sun is shining and the neighbors pausing long enough to gander at the spectacle staining their street. The Medical Examiner’s van arrives. It is a dark SUV, ominous, foreboding. It has a Metro […]

Christmas Commercialism

I wrote this LC a few years ago. Enjoy… You know what’s crazy? I’ll tel you what’s crazy.™ Holiday Shopping. It should be a biblical experience filled with the good will and merriment of the season. It should be children on Santa’s lap and little elfs handing out candy canes as you park your car. […]

The wherling Dervish of Lies

You know what’s crazy? I’ll tell you what’s crazy™ The guy sitting next to me. What the F dude? What are you on? Why you rocking back and forth on your bar stool like that? Are you having a seizure? Are you having convulsions? Why is your hand up in the air, waving like the […]

The Resilient Pilgrim

You know what’s crazy? I’ll tell you what’s crazy™ The Resilient Pilgrim. She is the U.S. Postal Service of tough. Through rain and sleet and howling winds. If Stonehenge could walk, it would walk with her. She’s the poster child for unstoppable force meets immovable object. She puts a smile on the Mona Lisa. Why? Because […]

Another Stupid Study

You know what’s crazy? I’ll tell you what’s crazy.™ Stating the obvious. does it surprise you that… Skinny people get more dates. People with hair buy more shampoo. Homeless people love subway grates. Does it surprise you? If it does, then stop reading now, and pull life’s emergency exit. There’s another study out there and it’s […]

Who the hell’s that guy?

You know what’s crazy? I’ll tell you what’s crazy. The CMA awards. New acts. Old acts. Some we know. Some we don’t. Unless you are a country fan, you need a program to know all the players. Sure there’s Keith and Carrie and Luke and Miranda. I know those stars. They are on the cover of People […]

Slow Motion Baseball

You know what’s crazy? I’ll tell you what’s crazy. The World Series. Exciting? sure. Historic? Unbelievably so. Slow? You bet. It’s not the World Series fault. It’s baseball’s fault. The World Series is the final spectacle of a slow motion sport. As far as sports go, It’s maple syrup in December. It’s Freeway Traffic in […]

The angry Blood Puddle

You know what’s crazy? I’ll tell you what’s crazy™ The combat vet. I pull up to the four plex. It is grey and worn. It is a stucco box with metallic railings and flimsy doors with peep holes. It looks like a shoe box that was designed by Converse. We pull into a parking space. I get […]
