Lordy, know nothing about the matrix, Saul, or baseball, but happy to learn. What a mind bender. Yes, “there are more things in Heaven and Earth, Horatio…”. Pass that ayahuasca around, could use a hit. Crazy world or is it that reality bends as the monied propaganda dictates, until it doesn’t…

Cleveland Guardians are my team and we should have won that series!! Rajai Davis hit that 8th inning homer and mlb wanted Chicago to win that series hence the 20 minute rain delay!! Lol glad you’re back!

Yes! We can! Awesome piece Greg. I've noticed 'Matrix' names many times, (the case of Reality Winner being a prime example) just as I'm reminded of Bookman the library detective on Seinfeld. 😆 Welcome back & thank you ❤

Fuckin' A Greg. I hate sports, yet was riveted - not just by the analogy, but by the history. Such a great writer you are, dear man. Welcome back.

Another great article, mind-bending--felt as though I was immersed in Seth Speaks again.

Solid base hit. This one goes in your anthology.

What a way to center Labor Day!

Did you catch Dennis Prager’s piece this week? OMG we all thought it was satire but I’ve decided that he could not help publishing what he really thinks about women.

Thank you Greg!

While you were on vacation, I decided to take one too and read the FDR at War trilogy by Nigel Hamilton. Your piece today fits my mood perfectly. Pass the peace pipe. Woo.

I think I'm going to have to try that ayahuasca. This was terrific, Greg.

Never knew that a baseball player with my last name had a team named after him!

Man oh man! I was grinning all through this piece! You surely summed things up at the end. Good and decent things are finally happening. I hear the drums in the distance, marching towards palatial residence in Florida, coming for a big orange blowhard. Ever see the movie “Ghost”? Where all the little dark critters, that look like PacMen, go after the evildoers? Just wish they were real! We’ve missed you, Greg.
