I once again found myself on the streets of San Antonio. This time it was to see the opera Mikado. As is customary on outings such as this, lunch was needed before the opera. We went with a couple of old friends, one of which had the routine of ordering cafe sua da. Having never tried Vietnamese ...

And so it was. An angry mob gathered in the virtual town square, torches raised and readied for the midnight bonfire. Justice had to be served, and since the transgressor of cultural norms hadn't actually broken any laws it was up to the people to cleanse the community of a clear and present dang...

Among the things I discuss include a tribute to Paul Harvey, a comment on the overrated actor Sean Penn and my pessimism over the Houston Astros' upcoming season. Enjoy, and feel free to tell me how brilliant or crazy I am.

Virtues abound. Defined by everyone from God to the saintly Bill Bennett, these maps of the narrow paths to righteousness are numerous and amazingly consistent. Here's a sample list: * acceptance * commitment * compassion * confidence * contentment * courage * courtesy * creativity * devotion * d...

That Jonah Goldberg is one smart cookie. Of all the pundits and politicians yacking about Rush Limbaugh's undisputed dominion over all good ideas only Jonah Goldberg found the words to help everyone, even children, understand this essential truth. Goldberg's op-ed in Tuesday's Los Angeles Times u...

It is time to stump your math teachers today. Or at least call them and wish them a happy Square Root Day. Today is rare day when the day and the month are both the square root of the last two digits of the current year. March 3, 2009, in its shortened version is 3/3/09. I will let you do the mat...

I’m planting a victory garden. Inspired by President Obama’s State of the Union speech and deciding not to let all these daily declarations of doom and gloom, crisis and catastrophe paralyze me with fear, I decided I would take action.

I'm sure all the WWE fans out there have kept up with this sick and twisted campaign against one of the greatest wrestling superstars in WWE history-Randy Orton. It is, to say the least, despicable. Randy Orton has a serious condition named IED, you see, and cannot be blamed for his actions again...

That Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal just doesn't sound like he looks. He looks like an extra from Slumdog Millionaire, but he sounds like a Baton Rouge barber. Conservatives don't like surprises. That's why our favorite word is 'no'. And that's why I don't like Bobby Jindal's face and accent com...

Admit it. You’re a lousy listener. Don’t fret. I used to be one, but I’ve been fine-tuning my skill, and you can too. I believe...
