An Open Letter to Russ Feingold

“We can have democracy in this country, or we can have great wealth concentrated in the hands of a few, but we can’t have both.”–Louis D. Brandeis (Helped develop Americans’ “Right to Privacy.” Legal scholars cite him and his opinions on “Free Speech.” Went after the Wall Street fat cats and the crooked bankers in […]

“Scamming the Scammed” or “Fool Me Once…”

I know they’re a nuisance to some, but I absolutely love these.  I received this email exactly.  The bold italics are my responses.

I’ve Missed You

Maybe you’ve noticed that I’ve been away for a while.  If you haven’t noticed, then maybe our relationship isn’t what I thought it was. I haven’t been dropping blogs as regularly as I used to, but it’s not due to any creative constipation.  Quite the opposite, in fact.  Sometimes you just need to get away, clear […]

Human Nature?

I’ve always been a big fan of Nature. I see the Earth not as a 1987 Mercury Topaz dragging us around the sun until we die, but as a living, breathing thing.  A wise, sentient being that would actually speak to us if we listened.  I’ve always felt this way. As a child, I subscribed to Ranger Rick magazine, the […]

To the Youths Who Knocked Over My Recycling Bin Last Night:

Hello Youths, (turn His chair around backwards so they [The Youths] know that He’s being casual) Let me first say that I sympathize with you.  We grown-ups have been jerks.  We’ve left you with a smoldering, burned-out husk of a planet, an economy that ensures that you’ll forever be tax slaves to our generation and television shows like America’s Got […]

Off the Grid

Folks, I’m no tree hugger; I prefer to go directly to second base, but I think it’s time for all of us to consider creating our own energy.  In a recent article in the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, WE Energies is proposing a 7% rate increase for 2010.  That’s up from a previously projected 4.9%.  Why? WE Energies says that, […]
