From Richmond, I went further east in Virginia, and deeper back into history, to the Historic Triangle of Virginia which is composed of Jamestown, Yorktown, and Williamsburg. First up, Historic Jamestowne, and John Smith, marking the area near where the Discovery, Susan Constant and Godspeed dropped anchor, and English settlers […]

Earlier this week I posted a proposed speech for President Obama, based on suggestions and comments from our members, that amazingly mirrored a speech he gave just a couple of nights later at the Congressional Hispanic Caucus. You can check out that post and the comment showing the speech here. […]

On Saturday, Glenn Beck and Sarah Palin stood on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial and spoke to tens of thousands of blindingly white, patriotically obese, special needs Walmart shoppers, claiming to speak for God and urging a return to the halcyon days of religious domination of our democracy which […]

My trip in April had initially been planned as a D.C. trip, and a predominant amount of time was spent in our nation’s capital and traditionally defined Mid-Atlantic states. In a loop around these states I did make a jaunt through the Commonwealth of Virginia. When I started this series, […]

Had the cutest and strangest experience this morning on the way home from our walk. It was another miserable sweaty walk this morning and there are these tiny little gnats out that we’ve never seen before. They’re teensie-tiny black flies and they bite! And for being so amazingly small, their […]

From Gettysburg, I went on down thorough the pan-handle of West Virginia, which was actually one of the finest manicured highway stretches I’ve ever seen. Enchanting, actually. Across the Mason-Dixon Line, I headed in to Shenandoah. In the powers invested upon me by me, I re-dub the Appalachian Mountains the […]

In my various meanderings around the whole of existence and parts of New Jersey, I have had the pleasure of making the acquaintance of God, Satan and other well recognized talking heads. It’s been my honor to share their blogs here at The Planet. As Fate would have it (if […]

Gettysburg. I trust most people know the history. The Train Station, where Lincoln arrived before the Gettysburg Address. The Eternal Light Peace Memorial. In 1938, the last great reunion of Union and Confederate veterans took place, during which President Franklin D. Roosevelt inaugurated this monument to all soldiers whom fought […]

After Philly, headed west again. In Chester County, stopped at Longwood Gardens. The gardens were once the private estate of Pierre S. du Pont, though an arboretum had been started from the family that owned it before, the Peirce family, who themselves purchased the land from William Penn. Now, I’m […]

Continuing on after D.C., drove northeast to Baltimore and then Philadelphia. The first thing I did in Baltimore was find the grave of Edgar Allan Poe. To get there, I drove past addicts in the inexplicable tourist attraction of Lexington Market and barring a parking space, had to leave the […]

A cowboy named Bud was overseeing his herd in a remote mountainous pasture in  California when suddenly a brand-new BMW advanced toward him out of a cloud of dust.            The driver, a young man in a Brioni suit, Gucci shoes, RayBan sunglasses and YSL tie, leaned out the window and […]

Yup, since getting back in May from my trip in April, I’ve been putting this off for far too long. Due to popular demand, I’ve pared down 5,000 photos (not all of them winners, admittedly) and so here we go. Gather around the couch, fix your eyes on the projector […]

In this shocking, unedited video, Andrew Breitbart proudly announces to an audience that he was on crack cocaine during the birth of his children, is in rehab, has sexual problems, is a narcissist and in the end confesses, “I’m kind of a fraud.” Should he be forced to resign? Please […]

After buying the old farmhouse at the end of March, I quickly went around to its back to look at what I had really purchased it for.  Because, although the house was very old and pretty in a vernacularly plain way, the property upon which the house sat was the […]

Happy Fathers Day, Dad. The day is here.  What memories do you have of this day?  Do you remember a kindness that you and your father shared?  A secret you cherished, one your siblings did not know?  An ice cream cone he bought you?  Playing catch?  Your Dad meeting your […]
