The myrmidon of a wealthy pervert.

    “You should always speak your mind, and be bold, and be obnoxious, and do whatever you want, and don’t let anybody tell you to stop it.” –Chelsea Handler

1. Alex Bosworth would like you to know where you can buy his magical book of stories. It makes a cheap and romantic gift for that special person in your life, who will be thrilled if not aroused by your thoughtfulness:  http://tinyurl.com/ChipChipChaw

2. No Memo of the Air – Good Night Radio show last night (2015-02-06) because of Fort Bragg’s going dark of power from the storm. Doug McKenty came all the way from freakin’ Elk to talk about his candidacy for the board of KZYX –on KNYO, because for some reason candidates get like ten minutes in total on KZYX to do that– and we had a nice chat amongst ourselves in the dark for a couple of hours. He’ll come back in two weeks and we’ll try again.

3. Next week I’ll be doing the show by remote from Juanita’s. Count on it; the power never fails there.

4. Here are some fun things to look at and play with that I found mostly due to the fine websites to your right:

Republican senator says it should be up to restaurant workers
whether or not to wash their hands after they handle their sweaty
private parts or take out the garbage, because that’s freedom.
