When The Money Runs Out …

The writer is William McPherson, a novelist, critic, and journalist, who was the editor of the Washington Post Book World and was awarded the Pulitzer Prize for Criticism.

Read that again: He won a Pulitzer Prize.

Now he is poor.

Falling

If you’re poor, what might have been a minor annoyance, or even a major inconvenience, becomes something of a disaster. Your hard drive crashes? Who’s going to pay for the recovery of its data, not to mention the new computer? I’m not playing solitaire on this machine; the hard drive holds my work, virtually my life. It is not a luxury for me but a necessity. I need dental work. Anybody got $10,000? Dentists are not a luxury. Dental disease can make you seriously ill. Lose your cellphone? What may be a luxury to some is a necessity to me. Without that telephone and that computer, my life as I have known it would cease to exist. Not long after, so would I. I am not eager for that to happen.

Vote Against Everyone

Today is election day in the United States.

Where I am, two incumbent candidates are running unopposed.

Tell me again how voting will “change” shit?

When you go into your polling place, I want you to think about Mexico.

ChinaMexico300mphTrains

Mexico gets a high-speed train.

We get brutal SWAT teams who shoot dogs.

Now vote against all of them.

Thanks For Nothing, Moron Politicians

NYDN102414a

It should have been stopped in Africa. There should have been an All Hands On Deck response from the start.

WHO’s pathetic self-centered weeping about its response being “inadequate” doesn’t bring back the thousands who died horrible deaths that could have been prevented.

The WHO, the UN agency designated with coordinating international response to disease outbreaks, missed chances to prevent Ebola from spreading when it was first diagnosed last spring, thanks to incompetent staff, a lack of information and bureaucracy due to “politically motivated appointments”, the report says. “Nearly everyone involved in the response failed to see some fairly plain writing on the wall,” said the report, obtained by the Associated Press. “A perfect storm was brewing.” The WHO refused to comment on the draft report.
