America’s Real Traitors

    by Walter Brasch   The Tea Party wing of the Republican party thinks House speaker John Boehner is a rhino. Not the thick-skinned horned mammal that lives in Africa. This rhino is an R-I-N-O... Republican in Name Only. The Tea Party...Show More Summary

An Open Letter to Mr. Obama and Mr. Bush

This is a parlous and dangerous time. And because of the eternal meme of literally demonizing anyone who defeats a Republican for the presidency, the CNS writer also, reflexively and inadvertently, advanced the cause of religious bigotry and world fundamentalist war. Continue reading ?

MSNBC Falls on Hard Times

I can't feel very sorry for a news network that thinks 24/7 news coverage of the 2016 presidential dog and pony show is "news" that ought to lead any serious broadcast.

The Persecution and Assassination of Jonathan Chait as Performed by the Inmates of the Asylum of the Intertubes Under the Direction of the Marquis de Sade

Our national dialogue of alternate realities has found a point of commonality at last: a confection of milky mindless hatred wrapped around a chewy nougat filling of purest Himalayan snark. Hate speech with a spell-checker, in other words. Continue reading ?

My Tenth Annual Christmas Podcast

I wrote this during the amazing Summer and Fall of 1986, when I wrote two books, two screenplays and a slew of short stories and essays in my Hollywood office on Kingswell, in what turned out to be Walt Disney's original studio. In 2005 we produced it for KOPT-AM radio in Eugene. Continue reading ?

See Through Black Eyes

by Leonce Gaiter We know that when Darren Wilson and many of his defenders see a black man, they see someone who “looks like a demon,” and someone who has the extra/sub-human ability to “bulk up to run through” bullets.
