Every day in our life, we wake up to a lot of questions. Who am I? Why am I here? How did Biden get 80,000,000 votes? Is Maxine really that stupid?
As I said, so many questions. And here I’ll take a shot at answering at least five of them. Are you ready? Let’s do this.

Why does it seem everybody is going nuts on airline flights nowadays?

I don’t think it’s so much the people as just the world in general. Where we once had a semi-respectful and live and let live type of life, now people are just looking for reasons to argue, fight, and disagree. And then add the fact that everyone has a camera on their phone and it’s all just blown up to crazy proportions. And as for airlines specifically, it seems that power corrupts and the airlines were given extra control and influence due to 9/11 so many years ago and now due to the pandemic and what was once not a big deal, now is grounds for arrest, being thrown off the plane, and probably sacrifice of a child or two. Too much authority in the hands of the wrong people, as well as too many people who don’t like being bossed around or told what to do. It’s a combustible mix and that’s what we have now in Joe Biden’s America.

What is your favorite type of pizza?

Just pike on the meat. Lots of hamburger, pepperoni, sausage, ham, and whatever else is laying around, add some cheese to hold it all in place and let’s much. I like the meats.

What is your favorite gem?

I’m not really a big gem or jewelry type of person, but if I had to pick one, I think I’d go with my birthstone, the ruby. It’s cool.

Should Dave Chapelle back off on the trans/gay jokes?

I think that if you can’t appreciate the humor that Dave Chapelle puts out, then don’t watch him. Keep that stick crammed up your ass and be a miserable soul. Chapelle is not politically correct, but he is funny. Dark humor and playing on stereotypes, unspoken thoughts & truths, and saying what people are thinking, but are scared to say. That’s entertainment going back to a time when we listened to people like Richard Pryor, George Carlin, Eddie Murphy, Don Rickles, Joan Rivers. They didn’t play favorites or hold back because someone might be an uptight moron. And Chapelle shouldn’t hold back either. Keep telling the gay/trans jokes. Keep telling the racial jokes. Keep telling the truth regardless of what little Karen or Chad complains from their safe space. Chapelle is funny. He’s a comedian. And I hope he keeps it up for many years to come. Lord knows we need all the laughs we can get these days. Good job, Chapelle. And thank you.

A remake of the “Lost Boys” – good idea or not?

If something is not broken, why keep trying to improve or fix it? The Lost Boys is the consummate ’80s vampire movie and has one of the best soundtracks out there. Why try to redo it and screw things up. I get it that there are no original ideas left in Hollywood and they just want to remake and reboot everything, but this movie, Just leave it alone already. Leave it alone.

And there you go. My thanks for reading. Comments, thoughts, and any questions are welcome and appreciated. Until the next time, take care of yourself and be good. I’ll see you on the other side.
