March Mad Winds

Forget about basketball madness. Here we go again. Another nor’easter. Snow and wind. This one called Quinn. Mighty or fizz? Bob Dylan’s Quinn the Eskimo sung by Manfred Mann. Written after Dylan saw Anthony Quinn’s Inuk the Eskimo in a movie. Those still without power in Westchester getting hit with a two-punch. March sure has come in like a lion.

At least they won’t be subjected to live feed of squealing women begging for a Bachelor to give them a rose and a ring. We’ve not come a long way, baby. And there’s the new law suit against Trump by that looming next tempest. Porn star Stormy Daniels.

Retail stores shuttering in 2018.

~ North Korea. Big buttons. Closer to check.

Reining Men

Okay. Al Franken. Several congressmen. Journalists. Directors. No industry nor political persuasion seems immune from viral misbehaving men. How to rein them in? Speaking out is a good start. Finding strength in numbers has opened the floodgates. It could also unleash a pandora’s box of blaming men for every ill. I’m still liking most men. They can be and have been champions personally and professionally. More of them than those jerks encountered along the way. But. It’s necessary to put a fence around criminal behavior. For sure.
