Well Bully For You!

We live in a very funny society. I’m not talking about the “ha! ha!” kind of funny. But rather the funny that is unsettling, almost pathetic. On the one hand, we go on and on about the poor elementary or high school kid who was bullied at school and finally does something about it, whether […]

Words, Words, Words.

I don’t play bar games very often. I prefer steel tip darts to soft tip, but don’t like trying to keep score. I love the idea of pool, but I never paid much attention in math class to things that seem to be important in the game, namely geometry and physics. This is not surprising, […]

There’s a lot of people whipped up into a real frenzy these days, largely because of the caustic remarks of a president who had the nerve to call American citizens choosing to take a knee at a football game, “sons of a bitch.” Well, that’s a first for me. I’ve never heard a president call […]

As you’ve probably noticed in the presidential elections this year, there’s a lot of lying going on right now. Some candidates have a tad more truthiness […]

Hack! Hack! Cough! Puke!

There are times when I am almost positive that Sony hacked themselves in order to turn a so-so, borderline crappy movie into a big hit. After all, it’s a brilliant marketing strategy — make a bad movie, create a newsworthy situation that puts the spotlight on the movie and its production company, pull the movie […]

Shamu On You!

Posted by admin on August 12, 2013 in The Soapbox

Growing up in the Pacific Northwest, I have always admired killer whales. As I kid, I read the Native American legends about these majestic beasts, which inhabit the waters of Puget Sound and the Straight of Juan de Fuca. When I was very young, I saw my first killer whale, Namu. He had been captured […]
