Uh huh.

But the reality is…. if anyone wants to take any of my posts and have it reproduced, distributed, performed, publicly displayed, or made into a derivative work without the permission of the copyright owner (copyright infringement)… I would be VERY flattered!  Not only that, the wider distribution of my work in an unauthorized manner would feed my otherwise waning and aging ego to such a degree that I’d have to see a shrink just to decompress.

I am likely not going to take you to court for infringing on my fringes (it takes years and likely no lawyer would take my case anyway), I’m not going to send “Ice Pick” from Chicago to break your bones (that can sometimes be a tad untidy), and I am not likely going to send you my shrink’s bill (for copyright decompressment).  But in the unlikely event you end up gaining from my work, either in world fame and/or fortune, just remember where you got it and spin me some of that as I need a new car.


This is an opinion blog.  What I post in this blog is opinion in the form of pontifications, rants, postulates, theorums, rhetorical bromides, fantasy, fiction, and my interpretation of reality and events… either historical or contrived.  My posts are NOT instructions, directions, or a bible for others to blindly follow.

If I ever get in trouble with the law the press should be advised that my posts are NOT a manifesto, a call-to-arms, or anything anti-social, anti-sexual, or anything else anti (well, ok, it is a bit anti-Trump).

Read at your own risk; seat belts are optional.
Warning: There are no airbags (other than the author himself)
