Ferguson: A Look Into How One Cop Views Black Teens

Ferguson: A Look Into How One Cop Views Black Teens

In the past week I have had and overheard some conversations that I find rather alarming. Some folk seem to place the cops as victims and others have been saying that Police Brutality/harassment and racism isn’t really a problem in this country.

Now I know I am a white dude and have no concept of what it means to be hassled by the cops on that level. I did grow up with a couple of trouble maker…

I was a bit tense on my way to interview Mr. Stahl. It was the day following the death of Robin Williams and that had me in a deep funk. Also, I expected Jerry Stahl to be a brooding intense fella. I was totally wrong. From second one of meeting Jerry he was joking around and totally disarming.  I…

Comedy Is a Second Class Citizen In The World of the Arts

Comedy Is a Second Class Citizen In The World of the Arts

I think to many comedy is a second class citizen in the world of art. However, I think the passing of Robin Williams shows the power of comedy. People who never met him were deeply shocked and saddened by his death. This is because he made them laugh and brought them great joy. It is a gift.

Comedy Is a Second Class Citizen In The World of the Arts

I think to many comedy is a second class citizen in the world of art. However, I think the passing of Robin Williams shows the power of comedy. People who never met him were deeply shocked and saddened by his death. This is because he made them laugh and brought them great joy. It is a gift. I can say personally as a weird kid in a shitty trashy suburb of Chicago that often he delivered me from the darkness, eased the suffering of those who abused me and made me see that it was okay to be a bit off the wall and to say strange things. In a way he helped save me and give me a path.

I think some people don’t fully understand the importance a comedian can have to someone. It goes beyond liking a famous person. The joy they make you feel and the sanctuary they provide or perhaps the light they shed on subjects you have a hard time comprehending become deeply personal. Robin Williams, Groucho & Harpo Marx, Woody Allen, Lenny Bruce Richard Pryor….this list can go on and on. Have a deep personal effect on my growth and understanding and approach to life. I see their pictures or hear the bits that I have heard a thousand times and it gives me a radiant warmth and comfort that feels like home.
