About Will Durst
Acknowledged by peers and press alike as one of the premier political satirists in the country, Will Durst has patched together a comedy quilt of a career, weaving together columns, books, radio and television commentaries, acting, voice overs and most especially, stand up comedy, into a hilarious patchwork of outraged and outrageous common sense. His abiding motto is “You can’t make stuff up like this." The New York Times calls him "possibly the best political comic in the country." Fox News agrees "he's a great political satirist," while the Oregonian hails him as a “hilarious stand-up journalist.” This former radio talk host, oyster shucker, and margarine smuggler currently writes a nationally syndicated humor column, and his scribblings have appeared in Esquire, George, the San Francisco Chronicle, National Lampoon, The New York Times and scads of other periodicals.

Debi Durst here.
As some of you may
know, Will had a stroke
last October.







Title of this Week's Durst Case Scenario Here we are three years and one day since Will’s stroke. Hard to believe I’ve been at this for three years and am still relatively sane. Will continues to improve, albeit slowly. I’m a bit chuffed we wasted almost a year not knowing he had a broken hip, but bygones. Upward and onward"
.
.
Will’s arm continues to improve faster than his leg. It’s a matter of loosening the hamstring so we can get his leg to fully straighten. Only then will he be able to put his entire weight on that leg and stand up.
.
We’ve had a bit of a kerfuffle with Will’s room at the facility. A leak in his room ceiling appeared, dripping on to his bed. He had to be moved to a smaller room, and everything is opposite; he now has the wall shelves on his left side, which is his weak side. This is driving him nuts but he’s forced to use his left arm a bit more and that’s good.
.
I had to replace Will’s iPad. The one he had stopped working and the Apple Care had run out. He uses the iPad to connect with the World, so it was a frantic day of running back and forth from the Apple Store to Will to retrieve his phone so we could reset his Apple ID and get everything off the dang Cloud onto the new device since the old one just wasn’t working anymore and there was no way to back anything up. That was an adventure I’d rather not repeat!
.
Meanwhile we are loving being back at St. Mary’s outpatient therapy with Will’s therapists, who we adore. They are fully confident Will is going to be able to walk again and every session proves he’s getting stronger.
.
I realize the amount of the GFM looks like a lot of dough, but that is the total from the past 3 years since I set it up and expenses keep coming in. Thankfully I can pay them due to the outpouring of love from all of you. The real balance on the account is barely a third of the total shown at this point and I am so grateful to each and every one of you for donating to this cause, especially during these hard times with so much uncertainty about the economy.
.
I hope all of you are well, and Will and I wish you all a wonderful windup to the Holiday Season!
**Coming soon: A new LIVE Will and Willie Show! Saturday November 5th at the Mission Rock Resort, 817 Terry A. Francois Boulevard, SF, 94158. Time TBA but we’re aiming for somewhere @noon-ish.

BoomeRaging:
From LSD to OMG
BoomeRagingWill Durst’s acclaimed tribute to the history, growth, joys, achievements, frustrations, fashions and looming doom of the Baby Boom Generation. Ably assisted by his trusty overhead projector, Durst explores the Boomers’ revolutions, evolutions and still vibrant role in today’s youth-obsessed society, which they invented, for crum’s sake. It’s a celebration of the maturation of the Boomer Nation and as an extra, added, special treat- the Meaning of Life.
