Colin Quinn (stand-up comic, actor, writer, Saturday Night Live alum) stops in to talk about his book Overstated – A Coast-to-Coast Roast of All 50 States, and he and Bridget manage to cover, the election, why Bridget should be a criminal profiler and write a book about U-Haul rentals, Colin’s plans for modern-day Constitutional Conventions, the fact that everybody’s crazy now and nobody seems to notice, and they compare psychic experiences (Colin’s involves OJ Simpson). They discuss how odd it is that our society has reached a place where people on the extreme left and right give people in the middle sh*t rather than vice versa, Colin’s elaborate plan to become best friends with Jeff Bezos, how he almost starred in Crocodile Dundee 2, why giving your opinion can be very expensive, and learning the meaning of the word “consequences.”

“Dogma lives loudly within you.” – Senator Dianne Feinstein

Senate Democrats argued that Barrett’s Catholic faith would sway her legal analysis, especially on issues like abortion. “Dogma lives loudly within you,” Senator Dianne Feinstein, a California Democrat, said in a widely reported exchange that enraged conservative groups.

And isn’t there an awful lot of that pointless, incessant barking on the Internet? But there are some fierce sites, some magical sites, some hella informative sites (I’m immersed in one on the art and science of building beehives at the moment), and some that just make me laugh out loud. (Sometimes, I don’t think this effect is intentional.)

I always bookmark a site that cheers me up when I see it, or when someone passes a link along, and I certainly have my favorites. Perhaps I’ll mention some of them in the comments. Meanwhile, won’t you please share the sites that make you laugh, and tell us why? (Please try and keep it clean, or at least let people know what they’re in for if they follow a link-of-ill-repute.)

I have a new COVID-19 update for you today. I write on May 17, 2020, using Johns Hopkins data (here) through yesterday, May 16. Reported daily deaths continue to decline, in both the US and Western Europe. The decline was faster than I expected this week. Using a 7-day moving average, the US peaked at […]

Scene: A Sunny Spring Day. A gathering of peaceful anti-lockdown protesters, carrying signs and shouting slogans, demonstrates on the steps of a state capitol building. The ghosts of John Adams and James Madison, curious to see how their American experiment is doing these days, have taken a brief road trip from Heaven to check things […]

There is planned, skillful comedy, including parody, and then there are instances of art gone painfully wrong, so wrong it passes from a bit embarrassing to howlingly funny. Or, at least it is mildly amusing. Your mirth milage may vary. Start with a talented quartet from England, who came to dominate the globe musically, even […]

Yesterday he thought he could sneak into my office without detection. He had no idea what he was up against. Although I lost him temporarily, I knew he’d be back. They just can’t stay away.

Sure enough, there he was this morning! He wasn’t going anywhere on my watch. Frantically I threw everything off the lower shelf of my bookcase. There! I lurched at him with a towel, but to no avail. But I was determined. I decided I’d have to catch him with my bare hands.

Like the rest of you and the world, I’m freaking out (admit it)! Do I have enough toilet paper, cleaning supplies, cat food, hair color, deodorant, coffee, wine, beer and canned goods? The latest corona virus updates are changing not by the day, but by the hour. I top off gas tank (wearing gloves), and […]

Went to Wal-Mart today to get stuff for Sunday lunch (Sauerkraut & Kielbasa). Saw a frail older lady with thin grey hair wearing a denim jacket which had, emblazoned across the back, one word; Ricochet. At first I thought, huh! Isn’t that interesting! And then I imagined mentioning it on Ricochet only to find out […]

I know how you can be happy without your usual vain efforts to boost your spirits with Prozac and chocolate chip cookies…

1. Adopt a Dog: Hurry to the nearest humane society and adopt a medium-sized, non-barking mutt. You’re going to want to post a lot of photos of your dog on Facebook (or, if you’re a certain dog lover who shall remain nameless, on Ricochet), so don’t get a black one. They don’t show up well in photos. A mutt with its shots, an embedded ID microchip, and a city license will set you back about $200.

I missed last month’s theme of “Memories” because I forgot. So this is about the Winter of My Discontent because I’m losing my mind. I don’t know if I’m burned out or distracted due to stress or if I’m just an airhead (I prefer to say I’m an absent-minded genius), but I’ll just tell you […]

‘Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the House of Representatives Not a creature was legislating, not even a socialist mouse; The impeachment was voted on by the democrats as a dare, in hopes that the sainted Media soon wouldn’t despair; The radicals were nestled all smug with their cloakroom goons, While visions of […]
