Spy vs. Spy

A while back, I mentioned that I had discovered that you can borrow library books digitally.  I’ve read a few books that way so far and I think it’s a cool idea.  I’ve been on a waiting list for a book I’m interested in for two months now and I finally got the download.  The only […]

TV Topics

I’ve been stewing about Iron Fist for the past ten days.  Friends and regular readers know that I’m a Marvel nerd.  I’ve been that way ever since buying my first Spiderman comic at Keys Drugs in Irondequoit Plaza in 1972.  I’ve enjoyed all of the movies tremendously.  Even the crappy ones(Nick Cage as Ghostrider?).  Marvel […]

During the interview, Perez said something similar to this: “Budgets are moral documents,” he said. “They […]

Big Little Lies

No, I’m not talking about Trump or his cronies.  In fact, as you may have noticed, I’ve taken a short break from writing about politics here.  I’m talking about the HBO mini-series starring Reese Witherspoon and Nicole Kidman.  Is anyone watching this other than the Missus and myself?  While the sob-fest of This is Us […]
