Law & Disorder

"I would a thousand times rather be the most incorrigible convict than this hireling of those who are trying to maintain law and order. Law and order! Finally, when you see it staring at you through the barrel of a rifle, you know what it means. A bas puissance, justice, histoire! If society has to …

Moral Self License

There you have it, dear worst-reader. Moral Self Licensing. When vocabulary finally catches up to the antics then you know all is well. Until then, there has to be an explanation for how so many can just follow the herd without any self intellectual recourse. Or is that recourse waiting in the wings to show its true face? …

Fly Change Not

At last count I've been flying across the Atlantic at least once a year, mostly between FRA and the mid-Atlantic coast USA, for the better part of twenty-five years. If I worst-say that's a quarter century, does that make it sound more significant? But these trips go even further back to when I was a …

Old School

Why blogging will fail (when compared to OLD SCHOOL journalism?): the writing isn't about the person doing the writing. Or something like that. Rant on.

Power Humor

"The people who must never have power are the humorless." -Christopher Hitchens, Arguably

Green Hell Cool

One of the coolest things about riding around the Green Hell aka Nürburgring is when you come across German car makers testing their newest mass, über-priced creations. Sometimes they disguise the vehicles so well you can't tell what brand they are. I bet BMW and the lot have departments in their corporate dungeons with people …

Ice Wankers

Note: unfinished post. You know what it's like when you can't find that famous quote? The quote that fits exactly what you're trying to convey? You can't find it because it's been misplaced, lost, dissolved to where only its burnt shadow still exists. But you're sure that both the quote existed and it came from …

The Artist Is

"Admitting this, I nevertheless firmly believe that no world order, no world harmony, is possible until the artist assumes leadership. I mean by this that the artist in man must come to the fore, over against the patriot, the warrior, the diplomat, the fanatical idealist, the misguided revolutionary. It is not against the gods man …

Politics For Stupid

Where the lost go? The road to nowhere. The small (minded) animal running in his run-wheel. And. Worst-writer is never surprised when he comes across yet another article that misses everything it should or could be about. But don't get me wrong. I'm not an opinion killer--like I was way back when I worked for …

Throw Like A…

Things beautiful. Like. Crabs from my beloved (and missed) Chesapeake, walking along marshlands on the eastern shore of MD, catching a sunrise as it awakes my mid-Atlantic. But there is something else beautiful. Even though I don't really follow sports much anymore, while in the US recently and drinking my sorrows away at whatever pub …

Dad Would Be Proud

Can't remember the first time I heard Sean Lennon sing. It's been a few years. Why do I want to remember? Nomatter. What I do remember is how his voice sounds so familiar. Whether I compared it to The White Album, Revolver or Abbey Road, I can't help but hear Lennon's father in that voice. And that's …

Another Mirror

Do you really believe Ferguson is a problem because of militarizing the police? Although I worst-believe that military equipment should not be trickled down to the common folk of a war-mongering nation, the police have been militarized since I can remember--the only difference being their equipment changes with every war. The fact that war-mongers made money …

Strange Fruit

As American't finds no shame in its behavior, there is only the slight hope that remorse will join the ride of history to tell this story. Ferguson is yet another example of the true face of who and what we are. Fiddle with your ideas of militarized police or dabble in explanation of government behavior. There are …
