Minimum wage

This is only news to the members of the elite.


I had no idea that we signed a treaty decades ago that said Japan’s spent nuclear fuel rods would be stored here. Oops!

Rain dance

I’m almost afraid to pray for rain, considering what terrible storms we’re seeing elsewhere this year. But it’s been 88 or higher for more than a week, and I would love it if we got some relief.

Fund drive

I hope you all enjoyed this holiday weekend’s musical selections. Just a reminder that the fund drive continues.

Only a small handful of regular readers have donated so far. It’s greatly appreciated, but I wonder why I haven’t heard from the rest of you. I know times are hard, but think about how it looks from my end: I’m virtually unemployable because of my political writing (HR people do love to use Google to find malcontents like me!) and it looks like this might be it for the foreseeable future. So I really need your support.

If you can still afford the occasional McDonald’s meal or a latte at Starbucks, why not skip the extra fat and sugar and make a donation instead? Your arteries will thank you, and so will I!

P.S. You do NOT need a Paypal account to donate.
