Robin Williams: Depression is a Real Thing

Well, here we are again.  You may recall earlier this year when I posted a tribute to three of my favorite entertainers who passed away in early 2014.  In that piece, I begged 2014 to be done with taking my favorite people away, knowing that the chances of that happening were pretty slim.  Sure enough,…

There are two kinds of Tea Baggers, billionaires and suckers.

Check your wallet to see if you’re a billionaire or a sucker. When should we tell Tea Party Republicans that they lost the 2012 election? American’s still have their guns.

Friday Nineties – Michael Bolton – How Can We Be Lovers

Alright, 2014. That’s Enough.

I wanted my return to the Gallery to be more upbeat, maybe with a good Ad Nauseam or something.  But, I have to have a word with 2014.  See, this year has been killing off some of my favorite entertainers at quite a clip, and I’m tired of it.  We’re only four months into the…

Colorado’s plan to thwart legal stoners

Did legalized marijuana lead to a crime  wave in Colorado? Amy Ford, a spokeswoman with the Colorado Department of Transportation, told USA Today that mile marker 420 on I-70 east of Denver was replaced with a sign reading: MILE 419.99 because  “People kept ripping them off.”
