Audrey Hepburn (Short Story) - 8/9/2015 5:58:12 AM
I'm with you on Audrey. She remains an iconic superstar of the 20th century, yet retained that elegant and understated presence throughout her life, doing good works after she stopped gracing the silver screen. Ron

Audrey Hepburn (Short Story) - 8/9/2015 1:02:40 AM
This is a great reminder of a great lady.

Audrey Hepburn (Short Story) - 8/8/2015 1:26:58 PM
A wonderful tribute! I admire Audrey Hepburn very much and adored her as Holly Golightly. Watch out for the mean reds!

Audrey Hepburn (Short Story) - 8/8/2015 12:26:37 PM
Lovely! Love ya! Jane

The Tame Tigers of Thailand (Short Story) - 8/5/2015 2:48:46 PM
A very accurate analogy. Those who make up our economic anomaly need to develop the "eye of the tiger" in our caste system. And, there has to be a fairer distribution of wealth which would begin to eliminate those problems we associate with the poorest in society.

Top 10 Things to Avoid Doing…Now and Forever (Short Story) - 7/25/2015 6:41:15 AM
Sure looks like an article to me. But more people read stories than articles, right? You should be a standup comedian. If you practice your delivery of these gems, you could bring down the house at the local comedy club. Keep up the good work. Your thinking cap is on straight. Ron

Top 10 Things to Avoid Doing…Now and Forever (Short Story) - 7/24/2015 1:59:06 PM
I'm good with your list. I'd like to add one that's part of a "code": Don't get mad; get even.

Top 10 Things to Avoid Doing…Now and Forever (Short Story) - 7/24/2015 9:34:11 AM
O that was quite something to savour. enjoyed each line. There is much sense in what you say. I agree and reading it is any day bettter than many sunday sermons. I proclaim. It is not the fault of the clergy. I understand they dont have the freedom to speak their mind like we people do. They need to abide by the rules in place. Agree? Roseline

Top 10 Things to Avoid Doing…Now and Forever (Short Story) - 7/24/2015 8:22:36 AM
Although I loved every word of this, I will admit that I am going out to buy a taser first thing. Calling my husband 'lisrlips' is no longer getting the reaction I want and a taser is the perfect solution. The second thing I am doing is sending this to all the people I know who read, and that is not my husband.

Steve and Eydie (Short Story) - 5/2/2015 7:27:57 AM
A wonderful opportunity. Great entertainers. A wonderful love story. And a killer joke. Now that's the kind of true story I enjoy reading! Ron

Steve and Eydie (Short Story) - 5/2/2015 12:43:34 AM
Hi Ed Thank you so much for sharing this story. Who else but you could write it so well for them. The couple came alive and will stay alive through this story of yours ! J K Roseline

Edward, I'm a diehard ID channel fan, and also have a special fondness for Lt. Joe Kenda. You've written a fine tribute to this sleuth!

Steve and Eydie (Short Story) - 5/1/2015 11:13:11 AM
Obviously an incredible show. You were lucky to see it.

Screwed by the Skew (Short Story) - 5/1/2015 3:26:59 AM
I agree. The upper 20% of the population holds 84% of the common wealth. The lower 40% of the population holds just 0.3% of the common wealth.

Screwed by the Skew (Short Story) - 4/16/2015 4:48:30 AM
Another great article. It's time for the voters to get it. We must remember that sales tax and the lottery are also taxes that hurt the lowest wage earners as well. But you're right. Inheriting wealth is something that is hurting all of us and the wealthy don't seem to know or care. Ron

Screwed by the Skew (Short Story) - 4/15/2015 1:18:02 PM
Another great one, Ed. I'll have to try and see how this comes out, as I doubt it will lead the news reports.

I am wondering with Ron on this one. It was well done. Maybe a little too well done. hug Kathy

The Flaming Fondue (Short Story) - 3/1/2015 4:51:32 AM
Sounds like that real-life nightmare, being naked in public. But the risk is not acute embarrassment ... only death. Very entertaining.

The Flaming Fondue (Short Story) - 2/26/2015 7:49:20 AM
That was cute. I'm glad it wasn't you. I'm still trying to figure out why you couldn't grab a pair of pants and skip the shorts. It looks like you have some stories to tell that are well worth reading. A memoir wouldn't be bad either. About that time, I was riding with Nick in his beat up 60 Sprite that had lost its top in New York State coming back from Expo 67 on our way back to California. In St. Louis, it had lost part of the clutch, making shifting difficult. Nick had to make a side trip to see his sister in Kansas City. She lived in a seedy part of town, in an old ramshackle house, and worse, in the basement. Nick made me stay in the car for about a half hour while he went to see her. Then, we were back on the road. Strange, that I didn't run into you, then… Isn't it? About 11 o'clock in Colorado or Nevada, I can't remember. Nick wanted to go into a country bar to "check out the local scene." I had no desire to lose any teeth and my paralyzed hands couldn't make a fist if I wanted to. So I declined while Nick went in and had a beer or two with the local cowboys. I guess he got bored and came back about a half hour later. We were on our way again. Ron

Inequality: The Cold, Hard Truth (Article) - 8/25/2015 2:15:33 PM
This is a succinct and powerful Bill of Rights centering upon one word--inequality, the antithesis of what constitutional rights are all about.

Inequality: The Cold, Hard Truth (Article) - 8/25/2015 12:25:21 PM
These tenets are embodied in the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, and the amendments to the Constitution. Power to the people to make these changes. Ron

The Sarah Palin Syndrome (Article) - 8/14/2015 9:18:58 AM
You didn't mention Bill O'Reilly. He employs a "researcher" to dig up facts for him on such tomes as KILLING PATTON etc., then puts his name on the cover. He claims to talk to this person several times a week. Get real. The "researcher" is a ghost writer and O'Reilly does not write a word. He may read them and object to any mention of anything that might be construed as liberal, but I doubt he actually writes a word. And he's not the only one. James Patterson might be the biggest offender of them all, but he's been giving some credit to the actual writers lately. He hasn't always done that. Clive Cussler is another one.

The Sarah Palin Syndrome (Article) - 8/13/2015 11:38:35 AM
Right on point! Each time I read your articles, my dander is up, a testament to your hitting nails on the head when dishing out the truth. Oh, I disagree that you don't have the good looks to parlay. And, hard-pressed to gain publicity for my own written works, maybe I'll run for political office for the much needed publicity.

The Sarah Palin Syndrome (Article) - 8/13/2015 6:49:20 AM
Right on the money! The biggest problem with our governance. Intelligent people shy away from politics because it is so ridden with evil. Mediocre social climbers with a definite greedy streak insinuate themselves into politics and reap the rewards of as you call it, "15 minutes of fame," as often as they can get it. PT Barnum is alive and well with all the suckers that flock to their speeches and buy their books. And losers win. If you can have fame, be infamous, it's all the same. The bored with disposable cash will buy. When Palin cashed in, she was quick to leave her beloved Alaska for the wilds of Arizona. Ron

I can't say it any better than Ingeborg!! Love ya! Jane

The Sarah Palin Syndrome (Article) - 8/12/2015 6:44:49 AM
I would vote for you any day because you are smart, well read and your articles are right on the money and your style and vocabulary is far above average. As far as Sarah Palin, I put her right now in the same category as Donald Trump, brazen, loud mouth, rich but no class. That is one thing money can't buy. You got it, or not. Sad fact. I rest my case. Ingeborg

Round One is Over…Thank You Jesus (Article) - 8/8/2015 12:53:55 AM
I avoided watching the debate at all costs, having lost my respect, or perhaps not ever having much for politicians and their aspirations. Respecting what you have to say on many matters of interest--I'm taking your word for it. Especially, "the exaggerated impressions of self-importance won."

Round One is Over…Thank You Jesus (Article) - 8/7/2015 7:35:54 AM
Once again, your analysis is right on. I saw a lot of frivolous banter and the usual patented and often, already failed, prescriptions for life in a Christian isolated country with no real solutions for the ones, "left behind," except perhaps, the patented answer… charity. They can all go live in Trump buildings on him. Right? Ron

Does Jeb Bush Support Manifest Destiny-ism? (Article) - 8/6/2015 2:02:06 PM
This is quite an eye opener mr. Phillips.. I don't understand why we have to put up walls to establish proprietary.. This is why the concept of one country is flawed.. It creates a separation amongst those who belong to a particular country and those who do not..

10 Questions for All Presidential Candidates (Article) - 8/5/2015 5:54:13 AM
Good questions. If received in a petition or mail, staff write up standard answers steering toward the candidate's preferred agenda. If asked in a debate, I've noticed that most candidates have a nasty habit of turning the question around, not answering it, and ending up selling one of their pet agenda items. Your comment is right. I don't have answers to some of those questions, like what to do about strength of the dollar, either, and I'm glad I'm not a presidential candidate having to face issues like that. Others are much easier to answer, but most politicians will slip slide on those. Ron

10 Questions for All Presidential Candidates (Article) - 8/4/2015 12:15:51 PM
I wonder if any candidate would be willing to answer just one of those questions, when they should be considering every one of them if they're seeking the highest office in the land.

10 Questions for All Presidential Candidates (Article) - 8/4/2015 9:40:52 AM
My Response: There are both pros and cons to a stronger or a weaker dollar. It's a difficult question, but one that a presidential contender could and should think about and have a good response to. If it snows him or her, they probably are not presidential material.

10 Questions for All Presidential Candidates (Article) - 8/4/2015 9:26:41 AM
RE: Question 9. Drug cartels are the greatest boon to the treasury department. They deal in cash (mostly US bills). The paper is exchanged umpteenth times in stores, outdoor markets and back alleys until the paper becomes so wrinkled, ragged and worn that no bank will redeem them. The treasury can print a new bill of the same denomination at no cost and no addition to the national debt. CIA agents and back ops also contribute to this quirk bonus. If US resorts to a basket of currencies, it will likely lose the depletion bonus.

10 Questions for All Presidential Candidates (Article) - 8/4/2015 8:17:14 AM
Excellent! ...............but do you think they would have answers already written up for them? It would be nice if you could actually catch them on the sly and sit them down to ask them these questions. Love ya! Jane

Me and Sister Joan (Article) - 7/31/2015 9:27:10 AM
Liberty had always been hard tonfind these days.. I believe in the matrix and that the world os controlled by a few.. For example, in your country, no matter how.many news channels emerge; those are owned by only 6 corporations.. Not to mention the Big Pharma.. We are being controlled to satisfy the greed of a few.. so, freedom in our own lives is not as said.. Despite all these, i life.. How much they want to control everyone, still decisions lie unto me.. Terrific article, mr.Phillips..

Me and Sister Joan (Article) - 7/31/2015 12:21:51 AM
Eloquently put! Pro-life encompasses so many more dimensions beyond birth--physical needs, spiritual nourishment through inherent rights stipulated in 'The Declaration of Independence.' Far be it from politicians or extremists to take them away from us under the posture of "religion" or whatever warped logic they can come up with.

A great reminder to those who want to change what they look like in order to please others that there is always a precious price to pay - either in monetary value; or the value of their lives that can't change back, especially one has used Botox. The surgery cannot be reversed when Botox are used because the skin cells are dead in that area and won't be healed when cut opened. No reversal surgery can be done if the result is not satisfactory.

In the Aftermath (Poetry) - 8/8/2015 7:08:45 AM
A very cogent and empathetic view of our propensity for our own destruction in the name of what? Saving humanity? Does it justify terrible mass killing? I'm with you, in my youth I thought highly of World War II, but as the Vietnam War progressed with the defoliant Agent Orange and the scorching death of Agent Orange (who can forget the image of the little girl with her clothes off running down the road near death?). And the wonderful B-52 carpet bombing strikes capable of bursting eardrums a half-mile away from the blast. As long as we distance ourselves from the horror with patriotic slogans and dehumanizing our enemy with name-calling, we will remain isolated and ignorant. World War I brought us deadly gases like mustard and sarin, machine guns and tanks. World War II brought us not only the atomic bomb, but the scorching death of flamethrowers and massive air strikes create firestorms in cities. Since then, we have perfected biological germ warfare and other neat ways to maim and kill thanks to our World War II created military-industrial complex. It's time to dismantle the whole thing. Ron

In the Aftermath (Poetry) - 8/7/2015 11:08:36 PM
Thanks for the reminder. We often forget there is enough WMDs stored in missiles that would kick civilization back to the stone age. The Cold War may be over, but the threat remains like a megaton gorilla on everyone's back.

Love comes at a price but it is a price worth paying. To not love and to thus be pain-free would be unthinkable. I very much like how you have articulated the costs - but of how ultimately there is only gain in the gifts that love imparts. So much here to look forward to and to hope for. Wonderful writing, Edward. And thank you so much for your very kind words of appreciation on my current post. I am most humbled and grateful. xx

At first I laughed and laughed, as your description of the "old man" matched a friend I once had (but no longer do). Very true to form and breautifully executed. Later in the poem, one feels sorry for the poor fellow, even if it is what he deserves. I enjoyed your poem very much. Well done. John

Pluto (Poetry) - 7/15/2015 5:32:38 AM
Looks like a planet or moon to me. Thanks for the informative poem. Got me to thinking… and, I believe that Pluto, like Mars, is derived from the Greek and made Roman, meaning "wealth" or Hades, God of the Underworld. ( If Pluto is made of water, we can move Mars to an orbit similar to Earth's and then move Pluto where it collides with Mars, creating a planet about the size of Earth with lots of water. Viola! A sister planet to earth orbiting with her. Great terraforming and re-seeding project. Ron

Discovering Ourselves (Poetry) - 7/4/2015 12:48:25 PM
Very optimistic and telling. We are the sum of thousands of generations yearning to be free. And, to a certain extent, as you so eloquently point out in your poem, most people in the world are free to love one another without ill feelings or contempt. While we have "become less afraid of our environment," I notice from reality shows that our brave souls when placed back in "a cold and empty universe" of basic survival in a plentiful wild environment, tend to utterly fail. It makes us understand how interdependent we really are. Ron

...who better if not you Edward, would be able to look at the presidential race...2016 presidential election...the greatest show on Earth...with options...when one can "win" it on merit or buy it...blowing few $$ to butter up the voters...when "voting" is an illusion and the only choice... that comb-over style replacing the Caesar-cut...or choice between selected few political dynasties...of apparent nepotism or...tolerated by the rest of the nation...celebrity's circus performance...scandals...conflicts....Your poems' witty use of the phrase "you're fired" and one-liner an exquisite job it real or just a ride!?...and a sad remainder...that your great country's founded in opposition to hereditary laws...rules...and obviously...never've been about the "hair-choices"....

Will Work for Pennies (900 billion) (Poetry) - 6/18/2015 9:00:28 AM
When I stopped laughing at this superbly well thought out characterization of the Donald, himself, I came to a sobering conclusion: It takes money to enter the presidential race. And if you look at past history, most of our presidents started out either rich or famous before they ever "threw their hat in the ring." That's why I think it's time that the American people come up with a way to prevent money and fame (movie stars, etc.) from being criteria to be a candidate. This is a piece I wish I had written and I'm sure glad that you have. Ron

Dead on hilarious. I'd love to know what other countries think of us when someone like Trump enters the political picture, Especially when he makes his entrance coming down an escalator like some god descending into the world of mere mortals, and then says stupid things about other countries.

Democracy at Work (Poetry) - 5/19/2015 6:29:40 AM
After I stopped laughing, I have to commend you on your insight. Probably the reason everything is so laughable is because, as my sister pointed out, we have a "Republic," and not a democracy… Whatever the hell that means. Contention seems to be the name of the game and the more mudslinging the better. I seem to recall the Lincoln, Douglas debates. And then there was that guy, Benedict Arnold. And scandals galore from Teapot Dome to Tippecanoe. Politics will never change and be the source of great humor like yours forever, I guess. Ron

Gracious - these things are certainly way above the common expectations of the daily grind, Edward, and are moments, I'm sure to be treasured.

The poem you commented on, "In the Bottom of Your Ocean", stemmed from feelings I was having from a miraculous event that occurred in my family...made me a-gape at His mighty works -- not only of nature (which was part of it), but of great compassion and comfort. May those loving waves wash over you too. --Charlie

The Pursuit of Happiness (Poetry) - 5/8/2015 2:48:12 PM
...finely written...exquisitely intense words ask an honest question about the meaning of "happiness"...does it have to be chase or just chosen? climb or not up to the top of "the Kunlun mountain" to view the sacred landscape of life...remain heavenly questions and an inspiration carrying a message...we are immortal spirits...achieving "happiness" is just a matter of an earthly perception and the song goes..."be careful what you wish for cause you just might get it..." Thank you Edward, for sharing this mind-bending poem.

The Pursuit of Happiness (Poetry) - 5/8/2015 7:26:56 AM
I love the way you use your poem to ask questions about what you consider to be "elusive" happiness. When I look at happiness, I think about contentment. Just the thought of it being wonderful to be alive and to experience, allowing many things to make us happy just because they are. Not a elusive at all, but right there in front of us like sunlight and rain. Ron

Ahhh . . . The existentialists. I delved into the Sarte, Genet, et all, back in the day. On the whole I think you are correct in explaining the basic concept of the existentialists thought process. But the more I studied it I realized the concept of existentialistism did not leave room for the heart to come into play. Or love. I surmised that the existentialists believe that one man was definitely an island with no room for anything, or anybody else.

This should be a grade school lesson or put to music for an early anthem - much better than fairy tales and magical thinking exercises. Well done!
