About Me

My photo

A man of many words. Profane, profound, loyal to a fault and a right rat bastard. I love the finer things in life: expensive cigars, cheap women and all the salted, cured meats I can eat. A friend to dogs, lover of humanity and despiser of people. If I were King the world would be a better place, because, well...I would be King! Oh, and I like ice cream.

Art Buchwald is Dying

I read where the syndicated humorist Art Buchwald has entered hospice. Brings back sad memories. It's a funny thing when one enters hospice. You are between living and dying. Art is dying from kidney failure. He got off dialysis and is awaiting the end. His mind is obviously still good as he continues to host his show with such great humor and grace.

I've always enjoyed his wit.

Thanks, Art, for all the laughs and smiles over the decades. The world (and I) will miss you. I will remember.
