Comments Off on There Is Too Such a Thing as Bisexuality
I was never one of those who claim “there’s no such thing as bisexuality.” I’ve known too many bisexuals to buy that the “don’t exist.” So, I’m not surprised that a study now indicates there is too such a thing … Continue reading

Comments Off on Kate, Cancelled
Apparently, it’s hard to build a successful television show around someone who’s (a) unlikeable and (b) had no discernible talent beyond reproducing.

Comments Off on The POTUS To Tweet?
It’s not that I don’t trust the guy, and maybe the whole Weinergate thing has me a little gun shy, but am I the only who thinks Obama tweeting for himself may not be the best idea?

Comments Off on Iron Lady Crushes Palin
I’m no fan of Margaret Thatcher, by any stretch, but she gets a nod of respect from me for telling Sarah Palin “Don’t bother dropping by.” I guess Ms. Thatcher doesn’t regret she’ll be unable to lunch with Sarah. They … Continue reading

Comments Off on Somebody Call Eddie Murphy
Bill Cosby may not have scolded Eddie Murphy for saying “filth flarn filth,” as Murphy claimed in Eddie Murphy – Raw, but Cosby reportedly told Russell Simmons to “Get the fuck out of my face!”. Russell wanted to patch things up, … Continue reading

Comments Off on The Tea Party & The Tsunami
Surprise, surprise. Among other things, the GOP’s budget cuts would hurt tsunami warning centers, undermining their ability to act. But don’t worry. Defending the Defense of Marriage Act should be all the tsunami prevention we need.

Comments Off on The New Rules of HuffPo
I wondered how much stuff would change when the Huffington Post was bought by AOL. Now I know. I attempted to cross post the “War on the Middle Class” post, and after a day got an email that it exceeds … Continue reading

Comments Off on Meryl Streep Is Margaret Thatcher
This looks like perfect casting. In fact, I’m not sure anyone other than Streep could pull it off. Always a terrific actress, I’m sure she’ll impress in this one too. In fact, I may see it. If nothing else, I’ll … Continue reading

Comments Off on People vs. Policy
Sometimes the debate over policy blurs the reality that what we’re really talking about are people’s lives. Case in point, on immigration: Can somebody tell me why this guy — a student who had lived in the U.S. since he … Continue reading

Comments Off on Getting Civil With It
It’s not marriage, but the signing of Illinois’ civil unions legislation will afford couples and families in that state a measure of protection they didn’t have before. Remember, Vermont passed civil unions more than ten years ago, only to “upgrade” … Continue reading

Comments Off on A Dime A Drink
Maybe I shouldn’t say much about this, because it doesn’t affect me (because I don’t drink), but I’m entirely in favor of increasing Maryland state taxes on alcohol. Look, the state tax on liquor hasn’t been raised since 1955, and … Continue reading

Comments Off on Gyllenhaal Rides Again
Just not on a horse this time, but underground. Dammit, why can’t I ever run into Jake Gyllenhall on the subway? And why couldn’t he be riding with these guys? (Don’t get me wrong. I’m happily married. But just because … Continue reading

Comments Off on Hammer, Down
I don’t mean to engage in schadenfreude, but hearing that Tom DeLay has been sentenced to a three-year prison term just makes me fell warm and fuzzy inside.

Comments Off on What’s Left To Say?
Once again, there’s something I want very much to write about, but can’t because other priorities have to come first. Of course, everybody’s writing about it. Thus, by the time I do write about it, it’s likely everything will already … Continue reading

Comments Off on WFT, Arkansas?
OK, first 100,000 fish turn up dead along an Arkansas River. Then 5,000 birds drop out of the sky in Arkansas. Or vice versa. Either way they happened about 100 miles apart. In both cases, only one or mainly one … Continue reading

Comments Off on Snow
I would just like to say that as a southerner it is both against my nature and my religion to leave my house under the current weather conditions. Nonetheless, despite a cracked rail on the Metro, I made it to … Continue reading

Dancing With The Stars is neither about dancing nor stars. Discuss.
November 16, 2010
Parker recently learned the word “overprotective” and now sometimes jokingly says I’m, well, overprotective. Whatever, but if I can keep my kids from getting hurt I’m gonna do it. Case in point: the shredder. I read a while back about … Continue reading

Comments Off on More Blog Silence
Great. The plugin I rely upon to create digest posts when I don’t have time to write anything seems to be on the fritz. And like most things that break in my life, I have no time to try and … Continue reading

Comments Off on Vaction, All I Ever Wanted
We’re on a bit of a family vacation this week. So posting may be sparse, though I do have one in the works.
