2012: “DOUBLE SNAKE EYES” ANNOUNCEMENT

Wednesday, February 15th, 2012

[c] DOUBLE SNAKE EYES, a working title, is the story of my life. At last I’m writing it. Unedited. Itís too brilliantly (yes, adverb) mad not to tell. The only time I feel like Iím breathing inside my skin is when Iím writing about my life, from birth to now. The Campbells, Harringtons, Livesays and Hacklers are too passionate to ignore and too hateful not to love.

The time has come.

P.S. No one was hurt in the writing of this blog.

Contraception, the Bishops, the Pope and the Catholic Church

I find it despicable and morally fraudulent that the protectors of child rapists think they have the authority to preach to women about contraception.

R.I.P. Whitney Houston

“Wanna dance with somebody.” I think of Jack Fisher and I on the dance floor in the 80s in Seattle. Her singing voice soared with a clarity I have only heard from her.

And I never realized until today, after watching video footage of Ms. Houston, how much she looks like Jessica Lange.

Fly, fly, fly, fly away.

REPUBLICAN RUSE 1: RELIGION

Tuesday, February 7th, 2012

RUSE 1, RELIGION:†

The first†Ruse to march out the Republican door with its talking points in hand, now that Romney has won†Nevada, is:† President Obama is out to destroy religion.†

REASON FOR RUSE:† President Obama will never attack Gov. Romney based on his†religion, he’s not that kind of man.† But when†someone does attack Romney based on his religion, whether true or not,†this Ruse gives talking heads and Republican politicians permission to ask the President, “the Republicans say that you are out to destroy religion, what say you?”†

(Have you been hampered in practicing your religion since†President Obama was sworn into†office?† Any of your friends?)†

PREDICTION:† RUSE 1 is the first of the RELIGIOUS WAR Ruses planned for the 2012 Republican Presidential campaign.†

RUSE 1:† ROMNEY WATCH:† He will approve of†RUSE 1.† The†Mormon church†donated millions of dollars in support of Prop. 8 in California, a voter initiative that defined marriage as the union of a man and a woman.† Later today, the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals will issue its ruling on Prop. 8.† No matter the decision, be on notice that RUSE 2 will†be born:†

Gays are out to destroy America, the next shot in the Religious War Ruse.†
