“You’re either with us, or with the Terrier…” Dragging bottled water throughout the house, messing with the sprinkler wires, stealing random bits of laundry, finding ancient soft drink cans, and barking at people who ignore her requests to play, Dory makes herself very obvious.

At a time like this, scorching irony, not convincing argument, is needed.
— Frederick Douglass

Like the Boston Terrier who is the blog’s inspiration, I tend to get into an equal amount of trouble simply by getting into things I would be better off avoiding.

That having been said, 17 years as an educator in S.E. Los Angeles County, has qualified me to have an opinion on any number of meaningless items. I do have my definite choices in music, books, and film. I’m also a shameless fan and alum of the California Golden Bears as well as not-so chastened fan of the Baltimore Orioles.

While I lean to the left politically, I am desperate to have a meaningful debate that would favor real compromise over mere capitulation. Sadly, whether it would be in my personal life or elsewhere, that doesn’t look like that’s going to be happening any time soon. In the meantime, I will try to keep things on the down low here, and try to post on things that get us all off-task, hoping to find some humor in my own natural cynicism.
