My article, “NYC is Dead Forever: Here’s Why” was read by over 30,000,000 people.

I can add together the number of people who read it on the various platforms plus the results from all the shares and I actually come up with a much higher number. But I want to be conservative.

It was painful. I calculated that about 95% of readers liked it or were ok with my stance and enjoyed it. But about 5% violently hated it.

Named after the lonely hitchhiker who just wanted a break from his troubles. Just wanted to be normal and hide. But he couldn’t. …

I’ve watched the proceedings on Amy Barrett. Normally I would never watch this for obvious reasons. They are super boring.

But, as is common in American politics lately, these proceedings are hilarious.

I’ve never seen an improv group as good as these Senators.

They basically can KILL for eight straight hours. Democrats and Republicans. What talent! What wit!

Senator Hirono asking her if Barrett’s ever settled a sexual harassment case against her. Or the dozens of pictures about the Affordable Healthcare Act.

[NOTE: without a judge to break ties, the ACA provision in question is ALREADY dead in the circuit court. That’s WHY it has made its way to the Supreme Court. …

For some reason, I’ve turned myself inside out and all my guts have spilled onto my blog. One day I’ll run out of stuff but not yet.
