|My experience with Obamacare
As I type this there are two weeks until the open enrollment period for Affordable Care Act plans closes, and the White House is doing a big push to get people to sign up, so I figured that as a ...
|Apocalypse, we've all been there
Last year I put together a reading list based on the recommendations of regular visitors to my web site. One book on that list, down in the 50s somewhere because I'd already read it, is The Demon-...
|Some nattering about negativism
Poll results on the ESPN web site make no sense to me. An ESPN poll will ask a question like "Who will win tonight's game between the Phoenix Suns and the Memphis Grizzlies?", and a look at the ...
|Mitt Romney (R - Bottom Half of the Internet)
It has seemed to me for a while now that there is a central issue in this election, and the hidden-camera clip of Mitt Romney that dominated the news last night gets right to the heart of it. About ...
|"The Pineapple and the Hare"
A couple of days ago my social networks exploded with chatter about the story that a crazy passage about a talking pineapple had appeared on a New York state reading exam for eighth-graders. Words ...

It seems as though over the past few days the Internet has become a giant device whose sole purpose is to pass along this Elizabeth Warren quote: There is ...
|the 59% minority
Another one from the TLDR files, and belated to boot — I wrote it three weeks ago — but people seem to have liked my last piece so I thought I'd go ahead and post this one, ...
|"a perfesser of law standing at the lectern"
This is probably one for the TLDR files, but I thought some folks here might find it worth a look. It's about Sarah Palin's speech to the teabag convention and why "lectern" in particular is a bit ...
|Adventurousness, Pugnacity, and Nastiness
On January 25, 1995, a radar station in Murmansk detected what appeared to be a Trident missile heading into Russian airspace. It was actually a rocket carrying scientific equipment. Russian ...
|My first political donation: God save the Queen?
I've been dating a Canadian for a couple of years now and have recently been seriously considering moving to Canada. I'd never really taken the prospect very seriously before; I love the Bay Area ...
