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.

Welcome Aboard Colonial Airways Flight Two.

"Good eventide, my lords, ladies, and gentleman. My name is Captain Sir Frederick Canning Craighead, Esq., and HM has granted me the royal privilege of acting as pilot for the aeroplane upon which we shall travel to HM American Colonies and points West. I beg most humbly that all in this esteemed company will remain seated for the duration of our journey, and with your restraining lap-girdle secured all the while. The serving staff shall, upon the tolling of the bell, commence service of tea, champagne, and scones to all and sundry. The fair winds of Providence hath blessed us by speeding us at the tail with greater haste and expediency than was thought previously. And we expect a swift and safe journey for all. May Almighty God bless and protect you. I remain, dear lords, ladies and gentlemen, your humble and obedient servant. Many thanks to you all."

Friday Night Wine-Buzz. Ask me anything.

I love you all...

The Trumpanzees must be thinking: "Did we have airports in 1776 under Obama? NO!

Gawd bless are Prezdint!"

Good day to binge-watch 'Unforgotten' on the PBS (BBC) channel.

Sure as hell not going to watch anything else today...


Happy Fourth of July, National Mall in Washington D.C.!

Friday Night Wine-Buzz. Ask me anything.

Started a little earlier tonight than usual.

How is everyone doing?

I love you all...

I'm so sick of Republicans and their revenge elections.

In the '70's the Democrats elected Jimmy Carter, a kind, intelligent man of unimpeachable moral character.

The Republicans, evidently horrified by all this, elected, with the help of the ludicrously-named Moral Majority, a divorced Hollywood actor who cloaked his vicious racism behind a facade of twinkling warmth and an apple-cheeked smile.

In the '90's, the Democrats elected Bill Clinton, who had all of Carter's intelligence, but less of his moral character. He appealed to younger voters, and steered the nation through a period of unprecedented economic growth.

The Republicans, evidently horrifed by a President who appeals to younger voters and speaks with Oxford-honed erudition, elected the bumbling ne'er-do-well eldest son of President George H. W. Bush. The younger Bush, born in Connecticut, fancied himself an urban cowboy, and spoke with the halting words and tangled sentences of the functionally illiterate. Viewing war as a grand adventure and a sure-fire election winner, he took the nation into two disastrous wars that we still haven't recovered from.

In the 20-oughts, The Democrats elected an intelligent, hard-working, gracious, visionary, appealing man who happened to be African-American. He repaired much of the damage to America's reputation caused by the feckless younger Bush, and became renowned worldwide for his gentle, but powerful statesmanship.

The Republicans, driven absolutely berserk by the idea of a Black President, scoured the sewers, septic tanks, and sump-pumps of America until it found the most revolting, disgusting, characterless, vulgar, backward, racist, misogynist narcissistic monster imaginable, and collaborated with a Russian dictator to elevate this feculent squdge of human offal into the White House.

If we elect our usual Democrat, capable, intelligent, hard-working, personable (and possibly gay, a POC, or a woman), how will the Republicans seek their revenge?

It's funny how much of my job is simply telling patients that they're not going to die from it.

"Ah, it's fine. Take this as directed, and it'll make you feel better. But you're going to be all right."

How is everybody doing this Monday morning?

Loungers, check in!

Friday Night Wine-Buzz. Ask me anything...

Helped along with a little Sativa...

I love you all...
