This flog is a real dog ... go ahead and bark at me

I hope you won’t be offended if I expose my wieners.

These are wieners.
This is a Weiner.
This is a HOT DOG FLOG. It’s a family Flog. But put a little mustard on it and you’ll relish it.

I’m certainly not going to defend Anthony, any more than I defended the people who set an example for him.
 Will the biggest wiener please stand up?

 Frankly I didn't want to mention any of these weirdos (or wierdos) in a family Flog because I didn’t want to give any of them more coverage in a major medium. But it seemed to me that they could all use a major flogging.

I wasn’t going to touch Anthony’s wiener with a ten foot pole because I have to protect my tweeties who have texted me that Anthony is planning to run for President in 2016 and may want to hire me as a consultant.
(If Hillary decides to run, no way Huma is going to stand by her man).

But I spent most of my life involved in political campaigns. I haven’t written a political “jingle” in many years, so I decided to write this for Anthony’s campaign for Mayor of New York.

I wish I were an Anthony Weiner-wiener
That is what I truly wish to be
Cause if I were an Anthony Weiner- wiener
Everyone would be in love
Oh everyone would be in love
Everyone would be in love
with sexts From me

C’mon...Everybody Sing!

Good night sweet prince: and flights of angels sing thee to thy rest...

My beloved brother-in-law, Floyd Herzog passed away July 18 in Johnson City, New York.

In 1960 when I travelled to Memphis to ask his sister Margaret to marry me, Floyd called home from the airport to say he had arrived and was ready to be picked up.

His mother, “Mama” said, “David is here, take the bus!” An inauspicious introduction. Despite being upstaged (the only time I ever managed it), we dropped the in-law and referred to ourselves as brothers for 52 years.

A tribute to Floyd can be found at

Floyd discovered a kindred spirit in grand-nephew, 
Kaz (Floyd loved opera and Kaz has a set of lungs
any primo uomo would envy).  October 2012
