Flotsam and Jetsam

Miscellaneous thoughts and observations.

Congratulations to UMass the 2021 NCAA Men's Hockey National Champions! I wonder if there will be a victory parade in Amherst?... They should hand out the 2021 MLB Comeback Player of the Year right now... An updated version of A Few Good Men would have Lt Daniel Kaffee arguing that Corporal Dawson and Private Downey weren't giving Santiago a Code Red - they were just trying to get him to wear his mask. Of course an updated version would have to change the title to A Few Good People Who Self-Identify As They Wish... In the discussion of the greatest American writer since Hemingway the name Ray Bradbury has to be in the discussion... An inconvenient truth is that Al Gore's documentary  of the same name has not aged well or held up factually. When's the last time you saw it offered or advertised on a streaming service? That movie has pretty much gone down the memory hole... All the best to Rep. Dan Crenshaw. Get well soon America needs your voice of reason... 


  1. I agree on Ray Bradbury, and I am embarrassed that I forgot about him in your previous post. I read Fahrenheit 451 in high school, as I recall. What is the equivalent now of book burning? Getting pulled off of social media? Cancelled by YouTube, or having your Twitter account disabled?

  2. The question keeps bugging me.
