May 16th, 2013 by Corey A. Edwards

Citipati Thangka

Citipati (“two skeletons – charnel lords)

In Tibetan Buddhism, the Citipati, a pair of intertwined, ecstatically dancing, male and female skeletons, are ascetics who were so lost in meditation that they they were robbed and beheaded by a thief without ever coming out of their trance.

Cross Purposes - christian crapoganda

This post deals in an off-hand manner with the central symbol of Christianity. If you’re likely to be offended by this, please avoid the inevitable consternation by not reading any further.

Why I’m a Pansy-Assed Liberal

November 4th, 2012 by Corey A. Edwards



I know that my opinion is of little value or interest in the overall scheme of things; I’ll not be changing your mind any more than a recitation of facts would. Further, I don’t believe our present government, no matter whom is at the helm or what their political affiliation, has the *ability* to have our best interests at heart or would be very effective even if they could … but I’ll rush into the breach, anyhow.

Tight Seating, Spilled Ink, and the Draco Reptilians

Tight Seating, Spilled Ink, and the Draco Reptilians

The bus home is crowded, even though I arrived with many minutes to spare. It is so crowded, I have to take one of the less comfortable seats up front but that’s okay because a cute, young woman arrives thereafter and has little choice but to take the space next to me.

What fun!

Don’t even say that!

July 1st, 2011 by Corey A. Edwards


I frequently hear people admonishing others or even themselves for voicing a negative possibility.

Now I do understand and believe in the power of positive thought. Optimism is an important component of health and social advancement: perky people prosper.

Of course, this is a generalization – plenty of grumpy jerks make it to the top and live long lives while some incredibly cheerful people contract terminal illnesses and or remain in a state of penury their entire lives. The point is that the former never appreciate what they have while the latter never mind the deficit.

Murray Christmas!

December 25th, 2010 by Corey A. Edwards

I really need to work up a new gag for the holidays but at least this is a different shot from the ’06 session – Murray Christmas, everyone.

Freedom From Religion

December 7th, 2008 by Corey A. Edwards

According to various news sources, a sign has been put up near a nativity scene in Seattle by the Freedom From Religion folks reading:

“At this season of the Winter Solstice may reason prevail. There are no gods, no devils, no angels, no heaven or hell. There is only our natural world. Religion is but myth and superstition that hardens hearts and enslaves minds.”

Now I may wholeheartedly agree with the sentiments of this sign (and I do) but I find it to be tantamount to, and thus as offensive as, any of the unasked for religious proselytizing the group claims to be protesting.

Live Each Day As If It Were Your Last?

October 30th, 2008 by Corey A. Edwards

I hesitate to keep dishing on the churches in the area but …

There’s a church reader-board I drive by daily that never fails to catch my eye with its wit and wisdom (a recent nugget of indispensable profundity read “STOP DROP & ROLL WONT WORK IN HELL“).

Another recent admonition “LIVE EACH DAY AS IF IT WERE YOUR LAST” got me to thinking.

What would I do if I it were my last day alive and I knew it?

Divine? Riiight …

October 21st, 2008 by Corey A. Edwards

Isn’t it interesting that, virtually everything proclaimed a “divine right” is, in fact, a moral wrong?
