Going through one of my down, dry periods, which is why I'm slacking on posting. Apologies all around. I won't go into details, but please be patient as I tend to several items, and get my batteries recharged. I'll be back in a day or two, and yes, I will conclude my Warmonger Within post, which, apparently, many of you are aching to read. Trust me, I'm just as anxious to read it as are you.
Meantime, here are two of my favorite Bugs Bunny shorts, from his prime in the 1940s, courtesy of the great Chuck Jones.
I'm the author of "MR. MIKE: The Life and Work of Michael O'Donoghue, The Man Who Made Comedy Dangerous," "AMERICAN FAN: Sports Mania and the Culture That Feeds It," and "SAVAGE MULES: The Democrats and Endless War."
I wrote jokes for Bill Maher and countless other comics, some of whom ran for public office. I've done the media/public speaking thing, pounding podiums when not singing and dancing for tossed coins. Once upon a time I wrote Red State Son, the archive of which can be found in the blogroll below.
