My media takeover continues

Posted · Add Comment

My not-so-secret media takeover plot takes its next step later today as I guest host Dave Congalton’s radio show for two hours from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. on KVEC 920 AM. From 5 p.m. to 6 p.m., we’ll talk to Craig DeLuz of the Firearms Policy Coalition about California gun laws, lawsuits against those […]

My Latest Radio Appearance

Posted · Add Comment

In case you missed it, you can listen to my latest radio appearance here. Dave Congalton and I talked about the death of Matt Frank, also known as SLOStringer, the recent libel verdict against Cal Coast News and the San Luis Obispo Tribune’s failure to live up to its code of ethics. For the record, I sent the link […]

Coming this weekend

Posted · Add Comment

I just hit “send” on the email containing this weekend’s column in the San Luis Obispo Tribune. The subject is faux Republican Donald Trump and why conservatives shouldn’t vote for him. Writing the column late last night there were quite a few paragraphs that ended up on the proverbial cutting room floor. I’ll craft those into […]

Expansion of the Hoystory media empire

Posted · Add Comment

The local newspaper, the San Luis Obispo Tribune, has “hired” me as their conservative columnist in an expansion of the Hoystory media empire. Hired in the “you’re doing this for free” sense of the word. I’m normally opposed to working for free because that devalues my work product. (I don’t want to think about how this blog […]

Hoystory was moved over to a new, quicker server over the weekend. Because sometimes it seems like the universe just hates me, the move did not go easily. The tool that the hosting service provides would not move the site over as-is. So way too much time was spent by yours truly using ancient hand-crafted […]

Not dead, just busy

I’d apologize for the lack of updates lately, but you get what you pay for. The past couple months have been crazy busy between three jobs—one day job and two online evening jobs—and something had to give. This site was it. I hope to begin posting a little more often now that the busiest time […]

Hoystory and guns

Two weeks ago I was in Las Vegas for the Mountain West Conference basketball tournament and because of the limited airline options in the Central Coast region of California, I arrived in Sin City several days before the tournament started. There are a variety of businesses in Las Vegas that offer visitors the opportunity to […]

Return to normalcy—sort of

Posted · Add Comment

OK, so the website should appear more normal than it has the past few weeks after I did some upgrading to the theme. I’ve still got a list of things to do, including some CSS editing, adding some additional graphics, etc. The Post Ratings will hopefully return. I’ve got to get some answers on how […]

So, I watched the movie Crooked Arrows Sunday night after the Super Bowl. If you like lacrosse or want to know just what the heck lacrosse is, I’d encourage you to see it. Otherwise, you’ve already seen this movie done better. (It was called Hoosiers.) At the beginning of the movie, the lacrosse team from […]
