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.

Nixon To Trump: How Far We've Fallen

Nixon was the defining monster of an earlier era.  We've now found ours in Donald Trump, a human consumption machine with no attention span, no self-control, no beliefs and no hobbies outside of sex, spending, eating, and talking about himself.  Nixon at least played the piano and read classics.  He was an intellectual with a pig's heart.  Trump is just the pig part.  The distance between them represents how far we've fallen in the past 40 years.
