You'll get emails whenever I post articles on OpEdNews

San Francisco based columnist, author, gym rat and novelist. My book, "The Confessions of a Catnip Junkie" is the best memoir ever written by a cat. Available on Amazon.com, or wherever fine literature is sold with no sales tax collected.

For those seeking more detail on yours truly, the following is from my website, allangoldstein.com, where you can partake copiously, and for free.

"Allan Goldstein lives in San Francisco with his wife, Jordan, and a minimum of two cats. His op-ed newspaper column,"Caught off Base," has appeared in San Francisco's West Portal Monthly for the past decade. Satire, invective and humor are specialties.

He also blogs regularly on opednews.com and on hypocrisy.com under the pseudonym Snark Twain. Other work has appeared in Spitball, The Baseball Literary Review, The Potomac Review, and several magazines including Rock and Gem and Pilot's Preflight. He is currently at work on his third novel."

Hollywood's Great Generation Gap Fail Youth, they say, is misunderstood. What they don't say is that youth wants to be misunderstood. Being misunderstood provides an illusion of uniqueness. And it's hard to feel special when you Instagram your daily lunch. Old people are less misunderstood, except by young writers who don't get them. So here are a few clues. Maybe they'll make my next movie going experience less annoying.

The Word War II Delusion War is murder. Sometimes defensive war is necessary. But what gave us the crazy idea that war can have a happy outcome for everyone concerned? World War II.

The Sissy Cynic's Guide to Ebola The cure for Ebola is already here, no doubt lurking in some laboratory, waiting to be tested, proven and deployed. It will happen in record time, and when it happens our response will be "about time." It will cause less jubilation than the launch of a new app. In America. In Africa I think they'll appreciate it.

Repeal the Second Amendment. If the people don't want guns in their society, they should have the right to ban them. Or, at the very least, keep them out of the hands of idiots who aren't sane enough to pass the Driver's Exam. But we can't even do that, because of the tyrannical, obsolete, absurd, outdated Second Amendment.

Failing the Edward Snowden Litmus Test. The job of our elected representatives isn't to persecute the whistle-blowers. It is to BE the whistle-blowers.

Dear Hillary, Announce Now Hillary Clinton needs to announce now and remove any uncertainty about her candidacy. As long as she’s in the race, announced or otherwise, she’ll get all the attention on the Democratic side. If she’s not going to run, she needs to step aside immediately.

A reluctant defense of Political Correctness A little love for political correctness, the ugly stepchild of cultural discourse. Political correctness,properly understood, is merely the code of honor, doing its essential work: holding society together in the absence of any other agreed moral/religious standards of behavior.

The Case for Market Socialism When an economy fails to serve the people it's a failed economy. The markets have driven global capitalism into a ditch. To fix it, we need some new ideas. Here's one.

A call from Justice Justice is a universal human ideal. So why not build a society on that foundation? Why not reach for what we have always wanted? Why not Justism?

Perchance to Dream The patient has cancer, diabetes, heart failure, bird flu and gangrene is setting in. We have been diagnosed. Why doesn't it seem to make any difference?
