I’m descended from the Laceys on my mother’s paternal side. (Although somewhere before my grandfather became a reality, the powers that be changed our familial spelling — hopefully because of clerical error rather than a distant relation’s inability to read. But the earliest written records list us with an “e,” so that’s my story and…

I’m from the south. We don’t hide crazy. We park its ass in a rocking chair on the front porch, serve it a cocktail (or possibly sweet tea, if one of the cousins is currently on the wagon between rehab-tours-of-duty) — invite the whole clan over, and spend the better part of a Sunday afternoon…

I got Creel blood (the hematological equivalent of demons) from my father’s paternal side running all through me — ALL through me. Beetlejuice? Anyone?

I’m a May on my mother’s maternal side.

I was delivered from down off the Mount (just like a pair of stone-flipping-tablets, though far less biblical in nature) on my father’s maternal side. Now the fine folks who track such things tell me that my ancestral peeps could have acquired this lofty rubric from either our Scottish or English forebears. Regardless of origin,…

They say “it’s the nuts that make a family tree worth shaking.” Well if that’s true, I have one of the most worthwhile bits of arboreal genealogy currently planted in the terra firma. We wear crazy like a badge of honor — and whoa buddy, do my ancestors have a lot to be proud of…

I have a lot to say about the world in my fascist state (too much, if the truth be told). But I’m just standing on the shoulders of giants — I owe a huge debt of gratitude to all those smart-ass social commentators who came before me, inspiring me with their caustic wit. Let me…

It is widely assumed that, if you don’t want to have children, you must hate kids and the people who gave birth to them. Not true — some of my best friends are parents! Seriously, while a very small percentage of no-kidders could live quite happily on a planet where all reproduction was banned, I…
