After promising you, dear readers, a personal, political review of the past decade, and delivering three installments, urgency and interest have left me. A fourth installment is in storage, gathering cyber dust. I pick at it, prune its edges, tighten its flow, but feel no need to post it. Much of it says what I've said many times before, new wrinkles here and there. I don't divulge everything each time out. But I figure, why belabor the point? I think most of you have already gotten the message.
Going through some emotional upheaval as well, which tends to limit my posting. So let me pull my thoughts together, and we'll kick start this decade with crazy ass shit that'll inspire wonder, humility, and the growing awareness that ants are not only talking to us, but offer a viewing package that puts Comcast and Direct TV to shame. It's there for the taking. Tenacious D understands.
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.
