His alter-ego Zuckerman, unconsciously frightened of success and of failure, frightened of being admired and also despised, frightened of being frightened, he unconsciously suppressed his talent, frightened of what it might do next. On the passing of Philip Roth, we look into his often black comic chronicles of an imagined life, his taking down and reshaping the meaning of ‘Jewish American’, and his play at historic re-creating the zeitgeist within the form of the novel. #fiction #PhilipRoth #literary

SONGS (San Onofre Nukes Generating Plant) shut down in 2013. Edison's long suffering beast rattled itself to death after a long history of mechanical screw-ups. Too expensive to fix, Edison yanked its plug. 5-years later, the nut jobs overseeing SONGS closure decided to bury its lethally hot nuclear remains on the beach at water's edge in potentially leaky casks, in a tsunami zone, frequented by earthquakes, next to a busy state beach park, yards from Cal's major north/south highway I-5. Then the beach burial casks' nuts...came loose.

“Everyone knows the Christmas Cat, he’s angry, huge, and mean,” begins the story of inequality and injustice for the poor, with the feline ogre who punishes those who fail to perform for their overlords, retold from Icelandic folklore with shadow puppets. #christmas #iceland #folklore

The November 2017 election-fraud, dictatorship-today, U.S.- and Canada-supported, crisis in Honduras has considerable historic precedence. Will Honduras repeat past horrors and fall into a lasting military dictatorship, brutalizing people and ecosystems? #honduraselections #honduras #juanorlandohernandez #bananarepublic
