Hornswaggler | The culture, the humor, a bit of the sports, not so much the politics, and the workplace distraction

Hornswaggle is an alternate spelling of hornswoggle, an archaic word that means to bamboozle or hoodwink. I take my pronunciation from the late Harvey Korman in "Blazing Saddles" --

"I want rustlers, cutthroats, murderers, bounty hunters, desperados, mugs, pugs, thugs, nitwits, halfwits, dimwits, vipers, snipers, conmen, Indian agents, Mexican bandits, muggers, buggerers, bushwhackers, hornswagglers, horse thieves, bull dykes, train robbers, bank robbers, ass kickers, shit kickers and Methodists!"

Workplace Distraction

Dear reader(s), there haven't been many posts of late because I've been helping a theatre company move to a new location to earn some cash and to see just how bad my allergies can get with all the dust up in that flow.
Also, I'm extremely disappointed that Relix magazine did not run my short review (along with some great pictures, including the one of Jeff Raines above) of the Mountain Aire Festival, even though I was assured it was pretty much a go, and the editor didn't bother to tell me; I had to find it out for myself. I feel like burning bridges...
At any rate, the content spigot is being twisted to inundate, so stay tuned. Star Wars is going to get taken out to the wood shed and thrashed. That will be up soon.
