Steve Cohen and I made a follow up to Aftermath, for all of the people who voted for Trump who told me they were good people. For those who want it, the transcript is below.   Since I’ve posted the video Aftermath: 2016, I have been told that good people voted […]

Prove It

I wrote this piece on November 10th, 2016, 48 hours after the election. My good friend Steve Cohen said, “I want to film this,” and together that’s what we did with Aaron Barrocas. Since then it’s been picked up by dailykos.com and Occupy Democrats. If you like it and you […]

Be nice to the women in your life right now.    I mean, you should always be nice to the women in your life. And I will say this before some asshole shouts “All lives matter” that we should all be nice to each other, too, yes. But be especially […]

  As I’ve said here,  I’m pro-political correctness, although I don’t much care for that term. I don’t think it’s “political” to treat people with basic kindness: to refer to them by names they don’t find offensive and to not perpetuate harmful and hacky stereotypes. If it wasn’t for what […]

TR wine & sunglasses meme 1
We’ve just celebrated an anniversary, or as it’s become known in the 21st century, “Bask in the glow of our perfect and loving relationship via social media” day. My heart still goes all aflutter every time The Husband writes something nice about me on Facebook and while I don’t think […]

  “We must be willing to let go of the life we planned so as to have the life that is waiting for us.” …Is how a bullshit meme on Facebook goes. You’ve probably seen it over a picture of a sunset or a lotus or a Native American.   […]

The Husband and I dine out too much. The proof is there every year in the Amex statement, right under the section marked “restaurants,” usually prominently displayed near the top, somewhere around “grocery stores” and “wine.” We like to eat. We like good food. We like good wine. Now to […]
