"Too Late For Love"

Somewhere in the distance I hear the bells ring
Darkness settles on the town as the children start to sing (= British voters)
The lady 'cross the street she shuts out the night
There's a cast of thousands waiting as she turns out the light (= Queen of England)

London boys are staring as the girls go hand in hand
With a pocket full of innocence, their entrance is grand (= Sadiq Khan)
And the Queen of the dream stands before them all
She stretches out her hand as the curtains start to fall (= Angela Merkel)

Standing by the trapdoor aware of me and you
Are the actor and the clown their waiting for their cue (= David Cameron and Boris Johnson)
And there's a lady over there she's acting pretty cool
But when it comes to playing life she's always playin' the fool (= Hillary Clinton)

But it's too late, too late, too late
Too late for love
Yes it's too late too late, too late
Too late for love

I can do this with one arm... gone
One of the persistent and nagging questions that occupies my quiet moments is why, oh why, is there no band to emerge from the European continent like Def Leppard? There is not now (nor has there ever been) anything out of Germany or France or Spain or any EU country that even remotely rivals Def Lep in energy, freedom or "artistry" and even though they've all been listening to rock & roll music from birth the Euros just don't get it. Am I overlooking something? ABBA? Kraftwork? Is it only the English that "get" R&R in any visceral or primal way? I think so, and that alone can explain Brexit for all the mystified bankers and multinational corporations - Think about it, this is a band that had it's drummer loose an arm(!) in a car accident and instead of kicking him out on the street the boys just set up a second kick drum and rocked on as usual - maybe better than ever. What European band would do that?


Oh, one more thing, Donald J. Trump is going to be the next president of the United States of America. I'm calling it today as sure as I'm sitting here. If Britain can kiss off the EU than you better believe that America can elect The Elvis from Queens to high office.

Blue Devils and Yellow Cowards

A few weeks ago Duke lost Coach K’s last game at Camron Indoor Stadium to the schools hated rival, North Carolina University, in an epic grudge match. It was an “ unacceptable ” finale for the maniacal ferret-faced competitor who created the 40 year dynastic Duke hoops program with 1,000+ wins and fists full of ACC and NCAA championships but for Tar Heels everywhere it was a day of retribution. Michael  William Krzyzewski, is a red-blooded All-American college basketball coach of Polish and Ukrainian descent who grew up in Chicago’s famous Ukrainian Village which is (or at least was) culturally very reminiscent of the Rus borderlands. That is to say that young S h-shef-ski   grew up as  far away (psychology) from Dixie as is possible while still living within the borders of the USA. That makes him the perfect choice to represent Duke University and the Yankee overachievers who emigrate to Durham for 4 years of education and networking before moving back to non-Southern civilization.

Psycho Killer, qu'est-ce?

I came into this wicked world in the early 1960's and as a result I have born witness to America's 50 Years of Failure which includes the modern age of mass shootings by psychotic men who "go off" on a given day, for no reason at all (except "guns"), and kill scads of innocent bystanders. Back in August of 2019 a KOTCB blog post titled " Reciprocity City " explored a young  gunman  named Patrick Crusius  who drove 9 hours through the west Texas flatlands to shoot up El Paso, TX The KOTCB has commented on many of these shootings, bombings and knifings over the years -  The roots of the Boston Marathon Bombing ,  the Emanuel AME Church shooting ,  Syed Rizvan Farook and his bride Tashfeen Malik ,  Ft. Lauderdale Airport shooting ,  Nick Cruz lovesick Parkland shooting ,  the Iranian, PETA activist, Vegan Bodybuilder, YouTuber's attack on Google  and now this very oddly timed and placed "lone wolf" attack on Walmart shoppers. This list

Mask Off

U.S. District Judge Kathryn Kimball Mizelle finally did it - after 14 months of mandatory masking by order of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) this capricious and ineffectual edict has been ruled unconstitutional and, it follows, illegal.  Since January 29, 2021 the CDC has prohibited citizens to travel without wearing a mask but the insanity actually started as far back as July 14, 2020 when " CDC calls on Americans to wear masks to prevent COVID-19 spread ." That's 643 days of stupidity folks - it covers the Kenosha Riots, the attempted kidnapping of Gov. Gretchen Whitmer, the Fake 2020 Election, the 1/6 Save America March and Insurrection, Jo(((K)))e Brandon's phony Inauguration, Trump's 2nd Impeachment, a horrible year of pathetic "leadership" from every single elected official in Washington DC, a war in Eastern Europe - and NOW, at long last, a federal judge in Florida ends the mask tyranny with one simple ruling from her bench.
