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.

How Did This Man Wind Up "Being There"?

He's like Chauncey Gardiner's evil twin* -- a childish simpleton with a limited vocabulary who doesn't like to read, and watches too much TV ("I like to watch.") while playing with White House phone system. 

"I genuinely do not think this is a mentally healthy president."
-- Eliot Cohen, former State Dept. official under George W. Bush

*(Sam Harris quote)
