eHarmony? Self abuse is cheaper (& far more likely compatible)

Dating on-line? A bite in the butt, & I don’t refer to a fetish. In the past (nearly) 7 yrs, I h’ve tried several dating websites. eHarmony consistently has received high marks & is one to which I had the misfortune to subscribe. 1st: science in dating that they tout? They have disclaimers. 1/4

(I’m a lawyer but despite pages of fine print there’s supposed 2 B fairness in online commerce.) 2nd: I spent a lot of time answering their questionnaire (to zero in, 1 infers, on…

What is "reality"? COVID, January 6 and masks

What is “reality”? A woman lectured me yesterday about my having worn a mask into the place where I was meeting a friend for a beer. She told me masks are useless (viruses go right through them), no one has died from COVID, and January 6? 1/6

She said those people who stormed The Capitol were placed by Democrats to make trump look bad. The “media” has brainwashed everyone to believe what was shown on TV screens that day. I pointed out “media” is plural and the images were caught by…

DCS Part II: > problems. Listen to "Mouthwash" 11/16/at 9 on FB

PART II: DCS PROBLEMS. Tues., 11/16, 9 p.m. on FB, I’ll be a guest on “Mouthwash,” John Schmitz’s podcast. Topic: Department of Child Services a/k/a DCS. If you’re affluent, you might not know about it. But DCS can take your kids. 1/10



Fed law requires DCS to seek Termination of Parental Rights (“TPR”) if a child’s been out of a parent’s home for 15 of the most recent 22 months under a dispositional (ChINS) order. If DCS doesn’t that can impact DCS funding. Sometimes DCS changes…

Part I: DCS. I'll be a guest Tuesday on "Mouthwash"

PART I: DCS PROBLEMS. Tues., 11/16, 9 p.m. on FB, I’ll be a guest on “Mouthwash,” John Schmitz’s podcast. Topic: Department of Child Services a/k/a DCS. Affluent ppl rarely encounter DCS. DCS is pivotal in TPR, Termination of Parental Rights, proceedings. 1/8

TPR usually starts with a call to a DCS hotline that a child is abused or neglected. The identity of the caller is kept confidential. Confidentiality can be good but also serves to keep much of the process secret. A DCS FCM…

Corpses have value!

Corpses have value. Network news, on Vietnam, each night 1965 on, flashed the number of U.S. military dead & wounded, offset by greater numbers of then-enemy (now trading partner), dead.

Some say numbers of “enemy” dead were as fictional... 1/6

as U.S. efforts to use militaristic dictators to instill democratic values in South Vietnam. Flag-draped coffins returning from Southeast Asia were difficult to ignore. With only three networks, news was not as fractured.…
