Charlie and I played golf yesterday on a small, local course. The group in front of us consisted of three young men. If I had to guess, they were probably 17-19 years old. More than likely high school or college students. One of them was barefoot and carrying a six pack of beer. As he…

A friend was recently ghosted by a man who she’d been dating for a few weeks. No phone call. No text message. Just silence. She told me that she’s worried about running into the man again. She’s worried about how awkward it might be to see him again. “No,” I said. “Don’t be ridiculous.” It’s…

Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito recently complained that “you can’t say that marriage is a union between one man and one woman. Now it’s considered bigotry.” Correct, you bigoted snowflake. You whiny, pathetic ignoramus. An equally disgusting sentiment might’ve been uttered in the 1960’s by opponents to desegregation. “You can’t say that black and white…

California fast food chain In-N-Out Burger opened its first two Colorado locations over the weekend in Aurora and Colorado Springs. Lines in Aurora reportedly reached two miles long according to police who struggled to control traffic all day, with some customers waiting 14 hours to be served. 14 hours is more than half a day.…

Is anyone really surprised that Donald Trump is trying to force himself on us even after we said no? Is anyone surprised that during this weekend’s G-20 summit, Trump spent the bulk of his time rage tweeting about the election rather than listening and speaking about the matters at hand? Is anyone surprised that when…

I heard from a teacher in Tasmania this week. Her students insisted that she send me a message about Memoirs of an Imaginary Friend. She says that she reads the book to her students every year, and they always love it. She says that this year, her students were so invested in the story that…

I learned today that the lack of applause between movements in a classical music performance is a twentieth century convention, and it is the result of snobbery. In Beethoven, Mozart, and Bach’s day, applause between movements was standard and expected. But in the early twentieth century, elitist jackasses began withholding their applause in order to…
