Will Durst's 21st Annual Political Animal Awards

A major silver lining in this cruelest month of April is a lull between show business awards galas. The lack of gold plated statuettes being flung about mercifully allows many Americans to stand upright for the first time in months. It won't be long, however, before we once again are forced to wrap ourselves in industrial strength Saran wrap to avoid drowning in the leakage of enough weepy insincerity to fill Olympic sized swimming pools with an unending torrent of ego-splooey.

Stuck in Traffic (School)

I didn't laugh when the cop pulled me over for rolling through a stop sign on a quiet residential street, and there was nothing funny about the $265 fine. But the next step, choosing a "traffic school," was a hoot.

Now Humans Are Just Along for the Ride

I have seen humanity's future and it's cargo. Not shipping cargo, but being cargo. One cannot pick up the newspaper without discovering a new area of transportation where human control will soon be superfluous.

Now it's the Dems that are Getting Nasty

And once again America reaches for the Tylenol after wrenching its collective back recoiling from the wacky ugliness monopolizing the presidential election primary process, but this time, it's... the Democrats.

50 Years Later, We've Learned Nothing From Vietnam

Last week Defense Secretary Ashton Carter laid a wreath at the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington in commemoration of the "50th anniversary" of that war. The date is confusing, as the war started earlier and ended far later than 1966. But the Vietnam War at 50 commemoration presents a good opportunity to reflect on the war and whether we have learned anything from it.
