About Me

I truly believe that we will all live in peace and brotherhood someday. And so that I don't lose my faith in humanity, I will live my life as if that day had already happened.

When discharging our patients, my assistant wishes them "Happy Holidays" No one complains. Know why?

Because most of our patients are homeless. They know what is and isn't important in life. They know the 'War on Christmas' is bogus.

The 'War on Christmas' is conflict-porn for idiots with too much time on their hands, and no genuine problems to command their attention.

Saw "Midway" yesterday.

It's was pretty good, and a damn-sight better than "Pearl Harbor". I know that's damning with faint praise.

It was pretty intense; one long battle scene, basically. Since hardly any of the ships and aircraft even exist anymore, most of the film had to be done with CGI. Unlike the original film from 1976, which used ships and planes that long post-dated WWII (the thinking was: "Who is going to notice?" Every professional and amateur historian on the planet, that's who.) Midway 2019 used CGI to reproduce accurately the ships and planes used in the war, which should satisfy every freeze-frame film historian who sees it.
