Breaking Up (Badly) With Walter White

We knew it wasn’t going to end well. But this time, Walter went too far. I could live with the drug dealing, the lying, the murders. But in the show’s finale, the erstwhile Mr. White dealt our relationship a fatal blow. He died. He looked peaceful at the end. But I’m not. I’m upset. Sigh.

Come to the Cabaret!

Ain’t We Got Fun? Well, yes and no. Life these days hasn’t exactly been a cabaret, old chum. The death of one parent, taking care of the other, is not exactly something to sing about. Unless it’s I’ve Got A Right To Sing The Blues. You could also get . . . bitter, but where’s the fun in that? There’s a better way. Life IS A...
