Rant #7

Hi, out there. Been a while.

The Supreme Court has decided, in a 5-4 vote, to be Second Amendment absolutists. Well, as a First Amendment absolutist I am encouraged.

The late George Carlin would have loved this decision.

(Parenthetically, why do conservatives never call a 5-4 vote "closely divided" when it goes their way?)

I feel that now, since the Constitution says there can be "no law...abridging the freedom of speech," we are free to spout slander, libel, sedition… Continue

Rant #6

Hey, 2 days in a row.

Normally, I don't listen to the dunce-in-chief at a press conference, but I was listening to NPR and was too lazy to turn it off.

Bush has improved as a speaker to the extent that he can regurgitate what they put in front of him without sounding like the worst kid in Remedial Reading. But, in any extemporaneous effort, his responses continue to be proof of a disordered mind.

All he knows he's had to memorize. He continues to stay "on message" even when the… Continue

Rant #5

There is no truth to the rumor that the toilet paper in the White House has the Bill of Rights printed on it, but it might as well be that way.

The whole story of the Bush administration has been the dismantlement of the first ten amendments, except of course for the second. Keep and bear arms to your heart's content. Want a 105-mm. howitzer for your next backyard cookout? No problemo.

Want the cops to have probable cause before they rummage through your mail, email, phone calls or… Continue

Rant #4

I’m beginning to think that Bush can’t wait for his term to end. Have you seen him dance?

The homicidal cretin is responsible for a minimum of 4,000 US deaths in Iraq, untold destroyed lives, and possibly a half-million dead Iraqis. Wouldn’t that make you wanna shake your bootie?

I say responsible, but he is merely the ventriloquist’s dummy in this sad show. Daddy Bush and Cheney are the ones orchestrating this tragedy-with-dance for the benefit of the Bush crime family and their… Continue

Rant #3

It's been a while, been distracted, but this jumped out at me.

The Bush administration has sent Attorney General Mukasey to Iraq to, ahem, "review U.S. efforts to help build the nation's legal system," according to an AP article.

The Bush administration, destroyers of the Fourth Amendment, as corrupt as a festering sore on Roger Clemens' ass, abusers of signing statements, liars, thieves, torturers, defilers of the Supreme Court, and generally a nest of thugs and brutes, advising… Continue

I'm surprised you are having trouble getting a book published. The other books were so good I assumed they were very popular. I look forward to hearing when you do find a way to get the next book published. I also was surprised to not find your books on audible. I think they would make a good listen.

I have added 3 photos. One is a logo I plan to use if I ever get a website together. It is my late cat, Noodles, and a baby rat he dragged in. Seemed like a good metaphor for what a PI does.
The book covers are for Served Cold (Shamus Award, 1994) and Dead Air, the second Lenny novel, set mostly in Portland.

Anybody interested in the picture I use for my ID?
It is part of a painted wall in Barcelona, and it says "Antifascist Always" in Catalan. The hammer-and-sickle of the Communist Party is their identification. I am a Social Democrat.
If I had to distill my political philosophy into one word, it would be antifascist.
I try to put some of that philosophy in every book, while avoiding obvious political statements or harangues.
After all, no one likes fascists. Right?
