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.

Good call by President Obama. This is the kind of game changing we were expecting in 2008. I've often thought, though, that when this day comes it will be good for Cuba, but bad for Puerto Rico. Time will play it out.

Now Mr. President...Palestine. You've got two years.

Today is World AIDS Day

Seven years ago this day I received a letter from the Peace Corps inviting me to spend two years in Botswana. What a long strange journey it has been!
