‘Supreme Gentleman’ Syndrome

  Everyone remembers the “supreme gentleman” Elliot Rodger, who “killed six people and injured fourteen others near the campus of University of California, Santa Barbara, before killing himself inside his vehicle.”  His deranged murder spree made him the idol of “incels” who have actually been deemed a domestic terrorism threat, because these losers keep going […]

Early Release

— by Wombat-socho Well, I caught some lucky breaks yesterday, and I’m out of the homeless veterans’ shelter. Planning to stay out, too; the VA has put me up at the Candlewood Suites down the street from the Convention Center, and I’m going to abuse their wifi to catch up on lost blogging time over […]

We tried to be voices of prudent skepticism amid the hysterical outpouring of Fear and Loathing unleashed by the Wuhan coronavirus pandemic. It seemed to us irresponsible — and perhaps even racist — […]

  For some reason, nobody was talking about teenage anxiety when I was a teenager. Of course, that was the 1970s, when we were threatened by real dangers like the Arab oil embargo, the Symbionese Liberation Army, Soviet aggression, and the presidency of Jimmy Carter.
