Welcome to Buster's Blog

Irregular commentary on whatever's on my mind -- politics, sports, current events, and life in general.

Posts may be added often, rarely, or never again. As always, my mood and motivation are unpredictable.

And that Gary Johnson!  He's "interesting."  For the record, I wouldn't vote for him for dog catcher.

Here's one more just for you:
