Raise your hand if you have become irritated with sound bites, glossy ads, baby-kissing, union-halls forums and now the increasingly annoying dirt-slinging between political camps. If you are gay but fiscal conservative, you are attacked by gays; if you exercise free speech to attack one-time ubiquitous American values, you get center-stage. If you use free-speech to criticize others championed by the same suck-up media, you are a bigot. Profits earned by business – other than those who fund the political machine of the party in the White House are despicable. But what about the suck-up media which profits enormously from it’s muck-raking?? Not much different than the campaigning of two hundred years ago.

Why "notdonner" for my 'nom d 'guerre'? When we decided to add the dog, Comet. to the household, we didn't change his shelter name, but also couldn't remember it. Since it was the Christmas season, I thought of Santa's reindeer: not Dasher, not Dancer, nor Prancer... not Donner, etc. I don't know too many who are not dog-men. I have often eschewed politics in favor of talking about dogs, existentialism and everyday perspective as one of the dog-people. Not that I don't like cats, I do. But cats tolerate you, while dogs enjoy having you around. While a vice-president of the New York Mets (MLB) organization, and an attorney in New York share the same first and last name with me, I have no greater honor than having served my country as a U.S. Navy Senior Chief.
