Earlier this fall I offered competing slogans for the 2016 campaign were Gov. Romney to be the nominee (“Third time’s a charm” versus “Three strikes and you’re out”) but linked to a persuasive post on why he won’t run.
Here‘s another reason it won’t be Mitt: that Gruber guy caught on camera […]
WHO, IN THE END, MATTERS?
Republicans care SO MUCH about the four Americans who died serving their country in a dangerous part of the world that they’ve completed seven investigations into the tragedy.* An eighth is under way.
They were so concerned with the . . . zero . . . Americans who’ve died from Ebola […]
THE IMITATION GAME
Alan Turing shortened WWII by two years and saved more than 14 million lives. (Also, he invented the computer.) Such a good movie; such an amazing — true — story. Don’t miss it.
LOOKS DANGEROUS TO ME
But love is love. You can see it in the lion’s face.
THE POLLUTION […]
FERGUSON – MUST WATCH
If like me you wonder how the Ferguson grand jurors failed to see a reason to take the case to trial — even on a charge as relatively minor as involuntary manslaughter — watch Lawrence O’Donnell’s compelling report. This is not to say a full trial would have produced a conviction. […]
Three things to watch this long weekend:
You’re not human if you watch and don’t laugh out loud at the end.
TAKE OFF YOUR SHOE AND GIVE ME YOUR MACHETE
AND +SPEAKING+ OF […]
Here’s the two-minute version.

Some will die from the occasional bridge collapse — not a small thing — but what most people will notice are the crippling disruptions in their lives and the economy.

President Obama has been averaging 33 a year. Presidents Bush averaged 41 and 36; President Reagan, 47; Presidents Eisenhower, Nixon, and Ford: in the 60’s, each — all just relentlessly “shredding the Constitution,” starting with George Washington, who issued 8. It’s so ridiculous — but welcome to today’s Republican Party. (Thanks, Tony Spina, for […]
These are not fireflies, but they do a beautiful two-minute dance through the sky.
“HEROES YOU’VE NEVER HEARD OF” DEPT.
And neither had I. But here, in a short obituary, the life of Bernard Mayes.
“GENIUSES YOU HAVE”
Or should have! (Perhaps you’ve seen “The Graduate”? “Annie”?) Mike Nichols died Wednesday. […]
I’ve always wanted to meet you. In case you live in the New York area and are free Sunday — and you like a spirited show — now’s our chance. My pal Seth Sikes so wowed the 54 Below supper club last month they asked him back for an encore. Buy tickets here. […]
Today’s post is not late — this is tomorrow’s, way early.
If patience is a virtue, we are all saints. Yet the consensus for “e-taxi” does seem to be building and WheelTug’s e-taxi solution does seem — to me, at least — to be the leading contender . . . with more than 20 […]
