PSEUDO NEWS: THE CALL

By: LBSPY / Category: Larry Berger, Pseudo News

I am watching two small wrens out of my window. They are cavorting among the barren limbs of the lilac tree, happy for the sunshine. I stretch my mind, trying to reach past what I am seeing. The news of the inauguration is droning from the kitchen radio and I walk to it and purposefully […]

By: LBSPY / Category: Blog, Larry Berger, Pseudo News

Want your mind boggled? Here’s a little information I picked up along the way to 2017. In your body there are around a hundred trillion cells. Inside each cell there are over twenty compartments separated by membrane walls, like the rooms in your home. Each room has a specific function. There are rooms for the […]

PSEUDO NEWS: PA RUM PA PUM PUM. BY LARRY BERGER

By: LBSPY / Category: Blog, Larry Berger, Pseudo News

Christmas is giving time. But sometimes I get a real scrooge-like attitude. When I wrote this I was trapped inside by a dreary rain, introspective. I knew a steering correction was in order. Christmas has always been a bad day for me. I don’t know why. Probably some repressed agonizing memories of childhood. I have […]

Pseudo News: Election Outcome May Cause Polar Shift

By: LBSPY / Category: Blog, Larry Berger, Pseudo News

On my never ending search for the news with a ruse, I wandered up to the Molten Core Science and Research Center located upstate near Pickens. After traveling a long way down a one lane road, I came to a dead end with a small, paved parking lot. There was only one other car. A […]

PSEUDO NEWS – ENDURING A COLD. BY LARRY BERGER

By: LBSPY / Category: Blog, Larry Berger, Pseudo News

When you have a cold, sometimes it seems that there is nothing to do but endure. My neighbor, John, who lives close enough to hear me cough, has been observing me from a distance. Tonight he brought me a whole freakin’ gallon of elderberry wine. We are both amateur herbalists and know the antiviral properties […]

PSEUDO NEWS: THE GUY WHO INVENTED LETTERS

By: LBSPY / Category: Blog, Larry Berger, Pseudo News, Uncategorized

Before the time that men besought themselves to write their tales, there was a man who dreamed up letters. He sat alone beside a rock upon a prairie conjuring ideas that swirled within him; the more he thought the more the thoughts demanded words; the more the words demanded letters, the more he thought.

By: LBSPY / Category: Larry Berger, Pseudo News, Uncategorized

I hate killing. Mass murders are in the headlines. My country is engaged in an election which is more like a war. Hatred and vitriol are the fare of the public media. And there is no solace in the fact that whichever candidate I vote for, they will be the elected commander-in-chief of a large […]

PSEUDO NEWS: JIM & TRUMP. BY LARRY BERGER

By: LBSPY / Category: Blog, Larry Berger, Pseudo News, Uncategorized

There was a loud rapping on my mud room door. I went and peeked out the little diamond window and saw big, old Jim Reacher in his Carhart coveralls, not looking in at me, but looking at his shoes as if he were thinking of what to do. Smiling, I swung the door open. “C’mon […]
