Obama hopes the country will view the affair as a "teachable moment." Harvard professor Henry Louis Gates behaved like an ass when asked to show his identification to a police officer investigating a reported break-in of his home.

Both Gates and the President of the United States played the race card which resulted in their own "teachable moment."

An oped piece in the New York Times by Stanley Fish perfectly spells out the contempt he and the left wing power elite holds for the rest of America. Check out the comments. It's really not about race at all.


Jack Kerouac

"They danced down the streets like dingledodies, and I shambled after as I've been doing all my life after people who interest me, because the only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars and in the middle you see the blue centerlight pop and everybody goes "Awww!"

from On The Road (1957)

I did this drawing for an article in the Palm Beach Artspaper about an upcoming poetry slam.

It's hard to believe that Kerouac died 40 years ago this coming October.

Barbra Wants You To Eat Recycled Cake

In a recent interview in Politico, Ms. Streisand reveals her passion for conservation and environmentalism. Who knew?

In her "interview" she laments that "a lot of time was lost over the past eight years to make the necessary drastic and critical changes in our behavior in order to curb climate change. "

She urges us to "help in this fight. ... by filling up the air in their tires, replacing older lightbulbs [with] newer, energy-saving ones, driving a hybrid vehicle, carpooling, bringing your own bags to the grocery store, installing low-flow showerheads, unplugging unused appliances and recycling."

While she praises Henry "Shotgun" Waxman's Cap and Trade bill to curb our (read "the little people") voracious, earth murdering appetites for energy, it doesn't go far enough!

"I just hope one day soon the country will wake up and fully realize that we need to step up in a major way in order to avoid catastrophic demographic dislocation in the years ahead."

Here comes the punchline -visit Barbra's personal Versaille- complete with energy-saving lightbulbs!

Can You Believe That Kid's Only Like Ten Years Old?

I heard those words while standing in a cluster of fellow surfers a long time ago as the Jackson Five played over a car radio.
The truth about his life will unfold over the next weeks and months and it's going to be ugly. That said- here's hoping they find the real killers. RIP MJ.


Minnesota is a Big Fat Idiot

Electing a wrestling novelty act Governor was the THEIR business. Dumping a mean-spirited bigot with a shady backgound in a failed talk radio venture into the United States Senate is OURS.

The good news is- the Democrats have set the bar lower than it ever was for the Republicans!


Ass with a Jawbone

Venezuelan shortman Hugo Chavez seems hellbent on playing "Tattoo" to Fidel Castro's "Mr. Roarke." Tonight's celebrity guest star- Sean Penn !

If he behaves himself the Summit of the Americas promises to let him ring the bell as each plane arrives.

Or push the buttons when the heads of state board an elevator.

You Must Be THIS High to be a Supreme Court Justice!
