Welcome to Buster's Blog

Irregular commentary on whatever's on my mind -- politics, sports, current events, and life in general. After twenty years of writing business and community newsletters, fifteen years of fantasy baseball newsletters, and two years of email "columns", this is, I suppose, the inevitable result: the awful conceit that someone might actually care to read what I have to say. Posts may be added often, rarely, or never again. As always, my mood and motivation are unpredictable.

L'etat C'est Moi

Too soon, our country will have a president whose name is prominently emblazoned in screaming all-caps on hotels, office buildings, apartment buildings, golf courses, on his private plane, on clothing, wine, bottled water, aftershave, and on yet another season of a shitty reality TV show, The Apprentice.  Pretty much everywhere and for purposes having nothing to do with the presidency.

This is unprecedented in U.S. history.  It's improper, vulgar, and possibly illegal.  The dignity and gravitas previously projected by our nation's highest office will be replaced by a narcissistic publicity stunt.

Where else in the world do you see such omnipresent imagery propping up a political leader?

Oh, yeah.  There.
