Promoting one’s self is the new work ethic, so I might as well participate. And it’s not like anyone else is blogging these days. What’s my competition, an inanimate carbon rod?Read more "Shameless self-promotion"

The celebrity navel-gazer claims to have never authorized phone hacking yet, by his own admission, is intimately acquainted with the practice. “Stories soon emerged that the marriage was in trouble – at one stage I was played a tape of a message Paul had left for Heather on her mobile phone. It was heartbreaking. The […]Read more "Piers Morgan, insufferable twit"
“Compromise is what’s led us to the mess we’re in right now. We can’t compromise our way out of this,” U.S. Rep. Tom Graves, R-Ranger, said in a Wednesday morning C-SPAN defense of his decision to oppose the Boehner plan. And only I know the way out. Sounds like a dictatorial mindset to me.Read more "What’s the difference between a dictator and a tea partier?"

Adam Sandler and Taylor Lautner are two of Hollywood’s 10 highest paid stars. Jennifer Aniston and Tyler Perry also finished in the top 20. Sandler’s next movie looks predictably awful, with a cast including Pacino in mugging mode, real-life Stepford wife Katie Holmes and the star of “Kazaam.”Read more "Wealth does not equal talent"
(Re: Headline change. Trying not to sink to their level.) Nine youth — most of them perceived or known to be gay or lesbian — in the congresswoman’s district have killed themselves within the last two years, while “many more” have attempted suicide, according to a disturbing account in Mother Jones. Bachmann has been mum […]Read more "Michele Bachmann is an unpleasant woman"
Actually, that’s not fair. Amos and Andy were offensive caricatures, no doubt, but were not vain, shallow, materialistic, melodramatic, backstabbing gossips like the offensive caricatures on MTVGay’s “The A List.” Yet the Petty Queer Establishment is silent. They must be busy searching for offensive language in the DVD release of a Ron Howard movie no […]Read more "Gaymos and Dandy return"
A recent Arbitron ratings report showed the ratings for Rusty Limbo and Helmethead dipped dramatically from the previous year. The reason, according to an unnamed “industry leader” quoted by WingNutDaily: “Liberals,” working in consort with the Antichrist Administration, “are falsifying numbers … to kill talk radio.” I thought that was the Fairness Doctrine’s job. It’s […]Read more "The cult of conservative conspiracy theories"

I understand the Atlanta streetcar is part of a broader transportation plan including the Beltline. Hopefully it all comes together. But I remain skeptical of the city’s promises, and its priorities. The streetcar, which links Centennial Olympic Park to the Martin Luther King Jr. National Historic Site, is, like most everything else downtown, aimed at […]Read more "Streetcar skepticism"
