Roe Vs. Wade: brief thoughts

My newbie-doomer, who has a pretty cool job, told me one of her employees needed to take the afternoon off and cry. I said, “That won’t help. Now’s not the time to hide in a safe room.” Newbies reaction, real and deep, told me that it’s time for me to STFU. Just for now. See, […]

the ascension of kate bush

In 1985 I joined the Navy. While stationed in San Diego for Basic Electricity and Electronics School (BEE), I met quite a few people who turned me onto music I’d never dreamed of. One dude who did so was named Rob. I didn’t know him long: he attempted suicide one night and I never saw […]

California Sober-an opinion

I want to make this clear and get it out of the way immediately: I am 100% abstinent. I have been 100% abstinent since 1992. I, as an individual in long-term recovery, am more than convinced that I cannot, under any circumstances, consume any psychoactive substance. Doesn’t matter if it is marijuana, alcohol, psychedelics, tranquilizers, […]
