I’ve been a paying subscriber here at Medium for two years, and during that time I’ve learned a lot. Nevertheless, I have decided that it’s time for me to depart. I don’t expect to find any greener pastures; I have simply lost interest in trying to deal with people.I’ve been…

Republicans have an adversarial relationship with reality. As Stephen Colbert put it, “Reality has a well-known liberal bias.” Republicans like to impose their preferences upon reality, calling them “alternative facts”. Mr. Trump’s inauguration crowd was the biggest in history. Climate change is a hoax. The Covid-19 pandemic is winding down…

Let’s assume that Truth, Justice, and the American Way triumph on Tuesday and Donald Trump is overthrown in a landslide. He’ll fight it, of course, but, again, let’s assume that his defeat is assured. What happens next?

You make idle hot air, meaningless verbiage bereft of any logical support. You do not know how to think clearly. I see no point in wasting further time with you. I'll be blocking you after you'd had a chance to read this.


Most of us think of Covid-19 primarily in terms of the number of people whom it has killed. As I write this, the body count is running around 180,000, with about 800 more per day. This number itself is astonishing. The terrorists on 9/11 killed a mere 3,000 people, and…


America is a messed-up place. We’ve got big problems: the Covid-19 pandemic, climate change, trigger-happy police, Donald Trump, and a zillion other problems. Most young people are pessimistic about their futures. Things are looking pretty sucky nowadays.

We can, at least, look forward to a probable Blue Tsunami in November…


Six months ago I posted an essay entitled “An Open Letter to Black Writers on Medium”. It presented the hypothesis that blacks might find more success in America if they decided to integrate into American society.
