Let’s face it, there is something in each of us that someone dislikes.    Some people are more offensive than others; but we all have our own aggravating quirks.

This said, sometimes we find amazing abilities in even the most distasteful people; and we should be able to separate that distinction and accept their contribution on its own merit.

Gauguin was truly a self-centered despicable person; but his paintings are beautiful. 

van Gogh was a genius; but a sick genius.    I am sure he was a trying person to be around.

Mel Gibson’s Hamlet is outstanding.

Clint Eastwood’s Unforgiven is one of the best westerns ever made.

Kevin Spacey in the Shipping News is only one among his contributions.

And then we have Donald Trump: a truly despicable person with no saving graces.   Some people are just worthless and live as a parasite on the earth.

the Ol'Buzzard


  1. Amen, brother! Drumpf defines the word despicable. I can find redeeming about the man. This is why in the initial stages of his presidency campaign I considered him a joke. I thought everyone knew what a slime bag he was and there was no possibility he could even get the nomination, much less win the election. One of my more epic analysis failures.

  2. BTW...I hope you weren't including yourself in that bunch up there, with the Ol'Buzzard thumbnail at the end. I'm sure anyone who follows this blog doesn't agree with that.


COMMENT: Ben Franklin said, "I imagine a man must have a good deal of vanity who believes, and a good deal of boldness who affirms, that all doctrines he holds are true, and all he rejects are false."
