First Round’s On Me – City of Angels Edition

I’ll be in Los Angeles next week for several days. Since it was so amazingly fun getting to hang out with Leaguers in DC last fall, I thought I’d float the idea for doing...

My Pet Cat And Electoral College Reform

It’s so much fun to be able to jump up and down and say “I’m right! I’m right!” only when what you’re right about isn’t particularly happy news, that feels like it’s sort of...

Tractable and Ornery

“No, no, no,” said the Skeptic. “I’m telling you—the language itself is corrupt. The words you use make the outcome a foregone conclusion. Always. They limit your vision.” “You’re—ehhh—telling me?” asked the Cynic. “With,...

Because I’m Weirdly Inquisitive: Teenage Sex Edition

Recently, I’ve been asking some seemingly bizarre questions.  My intention when doing this tends to be three-fold: 1.) I tend to have a less-than-firm answer to the question, a rarity for an arrogant SOB...

Why So Serious?

On May 5, I will run the Pittsburgh Marathon. I do this not because I am a good runner; quite the opposite in fact. To paraphrase Buffalo Bill, I’m a big fat guy: 6’3”...
