My herbs, which I was trying to grow from seed, are either majorly struggling (chives), got sunburned (cilantro and basil), or were eaten by critters (everything else, including the dill, which h...


A compilation of songs that were either cut from Hamilton or changed before opening night. I think “Congratulations” is my favorite, but I can see why it was cut. That was Eliza’s moment, not A...

I took my car, a 2010 Subaru Forester, in for basic maintenance today, and I also asked if they could check my transmission fluid. It’s been shifting a little too roughly for my taste, and since...

Who, really, is the agitator here? by David Remnick “A riot is the language of the unheard.” This is how Martin Luther King, Jr., explained matters to Mike Wallace, of CBS News, in 1966. That lan...

Has been said by Bill Maher. 2020 is a hell of a year, innit? A pandemic could collapse our economy, we have actual murder hornets in the US, and Bill Maher is the voice of reason on the most i...
