Blog Credo

The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.

Fuck Cancer

My father went to high school with John McCain.  Yesterday morning the melanoma that they cut out of him more than a dozen years ago finally took his life.  We saw it coming and yet yesterday (and for weeks and years to come) it blinded sided me from time to time.

So to the McCain family that will never read this, know that the family of an old schoolmate is pulling for you and yours.
