Rosenbeast Returns

We’re b-a-a-a-a-a-ck.

Rosenbeast and the board of directors (see Bio) have been on hiatus, and now we’re back—smarter, smirkier, smuttier, smellier and—obviously—as alliterative as ever.

And more angry.

Election Outrage: I’m not just pissed at the Clintons; I’m white-hot furious!  Just livid that their bullshit blunders and appalling judgement have widened a path for a pitch-dark, know-nothing, predatory carnivore to become our next President.

Is this really happening or just another bad Hollywood script? If only…

Hillary and Donald

Despite her own sinkhole flaws, Hillary Clinton should be leading that dangerous dingbat Donald Trump in the polls by half a mile, not half a head. And even that thin margin may be kayoed by the latest one-two punch of Bill Clinton’s outrageous private chat with Atty. Gen. Loretta Lynch followed by FBI Director James B. Comey citing Hillary’s “extremely careless” handling of classified information on her private email account.

She may avoid criminal prosecution but not prosecution in the court of public opinion, as voters decide between a congenital liar in Trumpet and a selective liar in Hillary.

My God, what lack of character and, most surprisingly, incredible stupidity. The Clintons are supposed to be plenty smart. But how smart do they look now? And how deceitful?

Self-serving Plug: I am now writing short stories for Nikki Finke’s website, My first title to land, “Paradise,” is very dark. Coming: “A Killer Review,” less dark. In progress: “Law & Disorder,” spun from my ongoing addiction to “Law & Order” reruns. Rehab hasn’t worked. After all these years, I’m still hooked and helpless to resist.

“Life on Speed”: That’s the title of a book Charles Feldman and I are researching. It’s our second book about the Internet, but this time a pavement’s-eye-perspective of its impact on everyday society.

Not on government and other big institutions—that’s been done. But on ordinary individuals. We’re collecting personal stories of how the Internet impacts you—the butcher, the baker, the candlestick maker. In other words, if it changes the way you live your life and/or do your job—for better or for worse.

We’re especially interested in ways the Internet’s blazing speed alters society. On a macro level, it’s changed the world. But what about the individual? Has our sped-up, revved-up cosmos changed your life in any way?

If you have a story to tell, here’s your chance. I’m listening.

  1. Dear Brother Howard,

    Re: My evaluation of the Internet A wife yells to her husband, “are you coming to bed”? His reply, “I am getting the score of the ball game on the TV. I’ll be there in two minuets.”Next evening, the wife yells to her husband are you coming to bed?” His reply, “I am getting the score of the ball game on the Internet. I’ll be there in three hours. This is precisely how the Internet has impacted all phases of my life. The “blazing speed” you refer to is bull shit! Susan and I are looking forward to seeing in October.
