Ruthless Grab bag: A Prelude to tomorrow

A Prelude to tomorrow Tomorrow I’ll be back for a second piece on voting. But today I wanted to give you a bit of my more normal blogging. Things have been tight and contested around the home of your favorite super villain, and it has kept me from going at some things that have come up.

One of the things that often comes up with my writing here on WDDIJ is a request to cover a particular topic. And usually I just don’t do it. In some cases what someone wants to cover I want to cover and so it for a moment interests are aligned and it works out.

And my appearance on a Friday instead of my usual Monday is because we have two writers who are just straight up swamped. So everyone send positive Read more »

Ruthless Grab Bag: A momentary attempt at civility

Ruthless Grab Bag: A momentary attempt at civility

I’m back with a grab bag, and for one last attempt to see how many people who happen to have the ability to think critically and logically have interesting questions after this. Ruthless Grab Bag 1. Anti-Intellectuals are often anti-Progressive, and where you live tends to be far more telling than you think it is. The first in todays grab bag is a wonderful map that talks about a subject I find personally and professionally interesting. And our question to think about is. Why do you live in a place that help you develop, if you claim to want to Read more »

Weddings, Reunions, Dental vists, and SHAKE UPS!

So you may have noticed someone has been missing a lot lately. You may have even noticed when he goes missing he doesn’t always explain why. Well…yeah no real explanation, sorry for that.   In other news I have been gone meeting old friends, getting massive dental work, and being best man in a wedding. Shout out to Superfans Chris and Ania Moncrief(aka Superman and Lois Lane) who celebrated their love in the classiest of weddings this past weekend.   But that Shakeup word is here again for good reason.    Things are about to get interesting. Not only has Read more »

Ruthless Grab Bag: Open Letters

Ruthless Grab Bag: Open Letters

First up I want to say thank you for the flood of sternly worded but entirely respectful hate emails. Yes you are right, my previous relationships do give me a biased view of certain types of women. You in fact do the same thing. But hey, if you are so sure I’m wrong about good girls…wait let me stop before this gets out of hand. An Open Letter to Fundamentalist Christianity…and why I can’t work with you anymore I’m tired folks. Really tired. We are supposedly on the same side of Jesus and yet day after blessed day you all Read more »
