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.

First Amendment Fizzle

I was pleased that Sunday's "Unite the Right" rally in D.C. for alt-right, neo-Nazi, white supremacists (on the one-year anniversary of Charlottesville) did not turn violent.  I was also greatly amused to see that the "rally" was a total dud, a First Amendment fizzle -- a motley collection of about 20 racist idiots and a couple of stray dogs.  The bigots were vastly outnumbered by a couple thousand counter-protesters, so the shit-heads packed it in promptly and just went home.  Hilariously inept!

Yes, things still look bleak at the moment, but there may be hope for America after all.
