    From Kurt Vonnegut's book Hocus Pocus: [my lawyer] asked me yesterday why it was that I never swore. He found me washing windows in this library, although nobody had ordered me to do that. So I told my my maternal grandfather's idea that obscenity and blasphemy gave most people permission not to listen respectfully to whatever was being said. I repeated an old story Grandfather Wills had taught me, which was about a town where a cannon was fired at noon every day. One day the cannoneer was sick at the last minute and was too incapacitated to fire the cannon. So at high noon there was silence. All the people in the town jumped out of their skins when the sun reached its zenith. They asked each other in astonishment, "Good gravy! What was that?" My lawyer wanted to know what that had to do with my not swearing. I replied that in an era as foul mouthed as this one, "Good gravy" had the same power to startle as a cannon shot.

    I would feel sorry for the athletes hurt by Covid 19 but they are also the same cocksuckers that berated and picked on my as a kid, so fuck 'em as that have had this coming. Karma is a bitch. Same sentiment goes for cruise ships and passenger airlines : you're all too expensive, exploitative, mediocre and polluting so please die soon!

    <a href="#" class="seekto" data-time="960">16:00</a> And that level of insanity is what I feel when regular people talk about face mask wearing in public. You have no idea how insanely easy it is to undo the protection you are wearing on the face. Its not safer, its another degree of worse. Because, the general public has no idea how to use masks properly and reduce their chances of infection. Improper use, and changed behavior leads to more infection risks, reducing the impact of mask wearing to near 0.

    ok, John, i love you but the 1st MLB game after 9/11 was Mets v. Braves. I know, I was there and it was the most emotional moment of all time in sports. Everyone was crying, I was, Mike Piazza was, all the Braves were...but it was incredible to try healing after such a traumatic event with all those people.

    I followed shelter-in-place orders for 3 months in my rent-controlled house in LA, ALONE! I had flu-like symptoms, shortness of breath, dizziness, even body rash...I feared having coronavirus & dying ONLY to find out I was exposed to TOXIC MOLD while I was barely leaving my home during the cold and rainy season! I tested negative for coronavirus and been staying at a hotel for 2 weeks while they're removing toxic mold from my home BUT ONLY AFTER I hired a mold inspection company with proof of toxic mold since property mgr was denying existence of mold probably because they're guilty of negligence! did I mention I had no working heater since Match 13th? Now, I'm tired of media's continuous fear mongering of coronavirus while there are other things killing people and/or making them sick! Why don't you do a piece about landlords not maintaining buildings properly in big cities like LA and putting lives in danger during the "pandemic", meanwhile, City of LA is not sending out inspectors for code violations due to the "pandemic" YET happily sending parking enforcement out to give expensive parking tickets to people! Don't even get me started on unemployment and the economy....
