  1. Today
  2. Right! Mastication practice over, so I'm all set... just waiting for the story to arrive and sweep me away to wondrous parts unknown.
  3. Last week
  4. Depends on how fast you eat. And if you bring a Big Gulp to enhance throat lubrication while masticating the corn, be sure to locate your pause button in advance for when you're taking your frequent bathroom breaks.
  5. Is it a one bag of popcorn or a two bags of popcorn story?
  6. Thank you for all the kind remarks! I am grateful to my editor for all the work he did and to Mike and John for the reformatting. I first wrote this story in 2002 (can it have been 19 years?) and it was the first story I posted to Awesome Dude in 2004 or 5. Thank you for reading it and for your compliments.
  7. And so it ends . . . I am quite certain I must have read this story a long time ago, because certain elements seem familiar, but it was new enough this time to be worth re-reading. Glad it's making a comeback. R
  8. Stand up and take heed: A longish short story will appear anon. Don't miss it. Free admission. Bring your own popcorn. C

    So glad to see Colin back onboard with Chapters 9 and 10 updates to "Adam". The story so far is a great read and I'm looking forward to more as the mystery unwinds.

    What does the triangle made of three green arrows signify? Eco-friendly recycling?😁

  13. Talk about dividing into two countries: we have a mini-vision of that in California. The state has something over 30 million people and for the past several years has voted solidly Democratic. But the state is seriously divided in political thought. The northern part above San Francisco and Sacramento is staunchly Republican, as is much of the agricultural areas south of San Francisco. So in land area, the state is mostly Republican. However, the largest cities—LA, San Francisco, San Diego, Riverside, Sacramento—vote for Democrats, and their population overwhelms that of the rest of t
  14. Do you think that people's perceptions of the rule of order, law and order, is dictated by the history of the country they live in? Until today no one in America imagined a popular uprising to overthrow the government, or take power, was possible. In Britain the closest that country came to something similar were the miners strike, a war with the Conservative government of Thatcher. In France, in 1968, the people took to the streets the government collapsed, the country was changed forever and a new republic emerged. In Catalonia the "regional" government of a nation under Spanish rule de
  15. When the results of the 2020 election slowly came in I was flabbergasted that Trump got 75 million votes. I thought that after four years of 'THAT' he might get a few deranged lunes in his corner... but 75 million? I was astonished, as I was today watching his impeachment. That 197 Republicans voted against Trump's impeachment seems somewhat insane. After all, they were in the Capitol, under attack, presumably in fear for their lives, directly because of Trump. That 10 Republicans did the right thing and voted to impeach speaks volumes to their integrity. One wonders what the next
  16. "You focus everything on Trump, he is only the figurehead, the man who symbolises and expresses the discontent of half the nation. I think it is dangerous to believe that by getting rid of the president, you solve the problem and magically everyone is united. The country is divided, the extremists are at the far end of the spectrum, but the problems in America run much deeper than Trump and the minority of his extremist followers. It is the root causes that need to be addressed.' -- Talo I doubt anyone believes all America's problems will go away once Trump vanishes. No, we have

  18. Then all the rowdies tuck tail between legs and hide behind their mommies. Well, we can hope, can't we? Trump has given a voice to these lunatics. Hopefully hushing him will have the same effect on them. As will the FBI's intent to jail as many of them as it can identify. There are already a significant number behind bars. I just can't see Trump continuing to raise a ruckus once his power has evaporated. Too, several states are waiting to indict him on various charges and he somehow has to address that. I've read in a couple of places he's planning to come to visit you guys, Ca
  19. So... tum-te-tum... how's it going? Watching from across the pond - CNN, CNBC, Stephen Colbert, Seth Myers, David Packman - it seems that there's still trouble at mill, and will be until noon on the 20th. But then what?
  20. I’ve seen other work by Rob Warr on other sites (are we allowed to say the N word here?) and therefore had high expectations. I was not disappointed. Things turn out in a way that’s surely too good to be true, but it’s fun to dream. R

  24. A lot of thuth here.
  25. This piece by Jonathan Pie is well worth a listen.
