0 Comments · Wednesday, November 11, 2009
It’s pretty clear that no one is ever going to solve the whole chicken or the egg thing. But that’s not going to stop Kentucky legislators from trying, as Ohio’s legalization of casino gambling has forced them to rethink their casino-gaming chicken and horse-racing egg (or is it the other way around?).  

The Last Of His Mind (Review)

John Thorndike - Swallow Press

0 Comments · Wednesday, October 21, 2009
The Last of His Mind is not a laugh a minute. But if it’s not a fun read, perhaps it’s an important one. The subtitle, “A Year in the Shadow of Alzheimer’s,” acknowledges the subject matter as that terror hiding in our closets. We, or someone close to us, will outlive our mind. The value of this book is in its engagement with the demon, bringing it to recognizable size and letting us know how one man met his father’s diminishing abilities.

A few weeks ago, my friend Julie and I were walking the sidewalks of downtown and decided to take a No. 1 bus to Mount Adams. It was a nice spring afternoon, and we wanted to take in the sights up on the hill. While walking in Mount Adams, I couldn’t help but notice all the cars parked on the hilly streets.  

Cheating Death by Fluke

No one really knows what death feels like. If they did, they’d be dead. As a kid I remember looking out the back plate glass window into the backyard and telling my mother that the rays of sunshine poking through the clouds and hitting the valley below were people coming back from heaven after they died.  

When Justice Fails

Life isn’t fair. That’s one of the reasons humanity, in all of its cultures and variations, has always created a system of justice — to help even the scales and encourage certain behaviors while discouraging others. Sometimes, though, the system is so skewed and distorted by special interests and power that it just doesn’t function properly. Muntazer al-Zaidi, an Iraqi TV news reporter, was sentenced earlier this month to three years in prison for throwing his shoe at then-President Bush during a visit to Baghdad in December.   

Top 5 New Year's Food Resolutions

We all have them, even if they’re left unstated. Even if we’ve refused to come up with any this year, they lurk in our subconscious, coming out in mysterious ways like guilt for blowing $50 at your favorite restaurant or for eating a bar of Chocolove for breakfast (welcome to my world).  

Frost/Nixon (Review)

Ron Howard finds an interesting surrogate in a media protagonist

0 Comments · Tuesday, December 23, 2008
I´ve never really been a fan of Ron Howard. I grew up watching him, first as Opie on The Andy Griffith Show, then later as Richie Cunningham on Happy Days. And while his all-American appeal was winning, those characters belonged to a time and place of innocence as lost as paradise.
