This site is all about happiness. What better way to start the year? (Thank you, Evy.)
Seriously. If you’re interested in psychology — or just in being even a little happier — a few minutes here could help get 2013 off to a great start.
In any event, I give you, a few […]
There are so many reasons to love this film. One of them is how starkly it reminds us: we have hot water. As much as we want, most of us, any time we want it! We can keep clean, we can keep warm or cool, we don’t smell bad (I don’t, do […]
THE DECLINE OF AMERICA’S MERITOCRACY
Peter Baum: “In case anyone thinks America is the best at everything, let me tell you that there’s nothing close to the ‘rest and relax’ area of the airport at Seoul (where I am now). Free beds, internet, wifi, showers (!), and a guy playing piano at the moment. But […]
Ross Stapleton: “A Planet Full of Terrific People.” What’s so threatening about that? Enjoy these five minutes.
BEST SUPER BOWL AD 2013
James Musters: “I thought this Renault commercial might amuse you.”
☞ Not sure they will actually pay millions to air this on the next Super Bowl, but it would […]
But first . . .
I don’t believe in Santa Claus, or the other stuff, but I sure believe in Peace on Earth, Good Will To Men and Women. Here’s wishing you incense and mirth — demyrrh at your peril — and an even better 2013.
And now . . .
CHRIS HAYES’ […]
A libertarian friend who runs in alien circles recently discovered the unattended cell phone of one of Mitt Romney’s primary opponents.

This video shows that WheelTug’s CEO will not make it as a stand-up comic but just might make us money. If I were an airline executive in that audience, I’d want to reserve an early WheelTug delivery slot for my fleet. So — with all the usual caveats — Borealis, parent of Chorus […]
Mike Bloomberg made perfect sense on Sunday’s Meet the Press. Rachel Maddow gave me hope we might really do something this time. Especially compelling: her two-minute Lyndon Johnson clip that begins eight minutes in. The need to act was as evident in 1965 as it is today.
On one side, you have […]
So let’s say it’s raining a little and it’s late and, yes, you could take the subway and an hour or so later get home (if your city even has a subway) but you’ve worked hard to get to a place where you can afford this, so — since you haven’t spent $400 to hire […]
My apologies for last weeks’ erratic posts. They should all be there now.
My first-cruise-ever was pretty great, but a few final observations and a suggestion. First off, if “you are what you eat,” I am surely by now a smoked salmon. I spent a fortune on the cruise, but if you price out the […]
Quote of the Day
Years ago, in the Carter term, a stockbroker tried to explain what Schlumberger did. 'It goes to 100,' the broker said, exaggerating only a little bit. 'Then it splits three-for-two and goes back to 100 again.'~GRANT'S Interest Rate Observer
