A few years ago, after the election of Donald Trump, I got into a (mostly) friendly argument with a feminist friend. It seems that she took exception to the point that I was trying to make which was this; women bore more responsibility for his election than many would care to admit. Even though less educated white men were Mr. Trump’s most ardent supporters, millions of women voted for him as well. Millions.

I tried to further my point by presenting the fact that my disappointment lay with the fact that WOMEN HAVE THE ULTIMATE POWER — they outnumber men…


For the brave souls who actually follow this blog with any regularity, you are aware that I don’t shy away from controversy and good, spirited debate. Yes, my intention is, in fact, to stimulate hearty, healthy discourse — even if it gets heated. In my mind, this is how positive change may be implemented.

Still, many say that you can never change anyone’s mind on Social Media but I’m not so sure that I totally agree with that. …


It’s Good To Be Alive

The delicate curve of a young woman’s breast

Exposed

Except for her long, bright yellow summer dress

Dancing

Barefoot

Golden hair flowing in the warm summer breeze

Blowing

off the water.

It’s good to be alive.

Today’s MOZEN: More Than A Ball

It sits on my window sill among my nick-knacks, do-dads, and other oddities. If one takes the time to really look at this eclectic mix of collectibles, you can garner a pretty good idea of how my brain works — lots going on there. But unlike most of the objects, which are a matter of mere whimsy, this one has very special significance. In all the years and all the games I have attended at Yankee Stadium, it is the one and only baseball I have…


It’s only been a week since I retired from the TV News profession, closing arguably the largest and greatest portion of my life. At over 40 years in the making, at this point, it will certainly be the longest.

Even though it has only been a week, I am already experiencing a kind of personal Renaissance — a rebirth of a type of physical freedom that I have not experienced since I was a much younger man — with a key difference. When I was that young man, I certainly had the time but not the $ to fully explore…

Orgasms are cool. No, they’re more than just cool. They’re great. In fact, I don’t think that I’ve ever experienced a bad one. Therefore, I highly recommend them for everyone. However, their frequency varies greatly between men and women.

Why?

To orgasm is to experience a complete release of all types of feelings: physical, mental, sexual, emotional, and, yes, often even spiritual. It can be (or, should be) so intense that we almost lose consciousness. With that in mind, the French named it La petite mort, or The little death, i.e. the brief loss or weakening of consciousness as associated…

It seems that over the last few weeks, Joe Biden has miraculously resurrected his moribund campaign for the Democratic nomination for President. After a resounding victory in South Carolina gave the campaign a first breath of life, he far exceeded expectations with a emphatic triumph on Super Tuesday. These recent gains have allowed him to reduce the once crowded Democratic field to essentially two people: Biden and Bernie Sanders. The strength of his surge was enough to convince rivals Pete Buttigeig and Amy Klobuchar to suspend their campaigns and throw their support behind him. …


Man, I was down. I mean I was lower than whale shit. The woman I had every intention of spending my life with had seen the light, changed her mind, and left me. It wasn’t the first time and, unfortunately, it wouldn’t be the last, either. I suppose that I’m a glutton for punishment. Be that as it may, I was a hurtin’ cowboy. And, it showed. I walked around wearing my sorrow like an old, cheap, wrinkled suit.

At the time, I was working as a producer/reporter for the local cable company in West Nyack, N.Y. It was my…


It is estimated that there are about 4300 religions* in the world with Christianity being the largest, followed by Islam. So, it means a lot of things to a lot of people. For some, it means EVERYTHING.

I spent my formative years being well indoctrinated in the Roman Catholic version. I went to a parochial grammar school, attended church regularly, and even became an alter boy. Religion taught me many lessons, some of them even profound.

But, that was then. And, this is now.

I no longer subscribe to ANY organized religion. The thousands of rituals, rights, rules, and superstition…

Last night, at the end of President Trump’s 3rd and final State of the Union Address that lasted well over an hour, The Speaker of the US House of Representatives, The Honorable Nancy Pelosi, stood in front of a packed gallery and millions of TV viewers around the world, and in plain sight, tore her entire copy of the speech that was given to her by the President himself to pieces. Standing behind him, she rendered the legal sized papers in half while Mr. Trump basked in the bright TV lights and to the thunderous applause of his fanatical devotees…
