The price of cable is eternal vigilance.

Saw a story on Time.com's site a week ago that said the price of cable has escalated (I think it was 3x, but I'm not certain) far beyond the cost of inflation over the past couple of years.

Big secret: Temple's not ugly.

Wadley and Greer are purty, and they have just shot lights out in the first half of both games. Giving an 11 seed a big lead, especially when that 11 seed has been there every year and has good...

Good concept, faulty execution.

Why isn't there more heartbreak as cherished heirlooms turn out to be nothing more than common-grade crap? Where is the violent disappointment of dreams ruined? When (oh when) is the show going to...

Pat's. One, wiz, wit.

Yes, I know, it's cold, people are rude, you had one that wasn't good, the roll was stale, it's always so crowded, the counter looks unsanitary and it's just overrated. Now shut up before some extra...

Unions not needed?

I'm reminded of the old "the Devil's biggest trick is to make people believe He doesn't exist" line. Given that we now live in a society where responsibility to shareholders supercedes responsibility...

Screw the union?

As much as I miss SEPTA (i.e., about as much as I miss slush and ice), union-bashing isn't the answer... because management creates the union, through bad hires, worse practices and unreasonable...

Step into my office.

First things first: we gotta get some VC. Our pitch is that we're never going to make money, but that's OK, because we're going to lose it very, very slowly. So the Cellar will help the rest of their...

The morality of home schooling

Tangent, but hopefully a helpful one:

Is it

a) better to raise your child, if possible, in a home-schooling environment which seem to produce superior results (as well as the obvious benefit...

Sure, I'm overreacting.

Look, I've never been more disgusted with a vote than when I pulled the lever for Gore this last November. Voting for an ignominous centrist with a wife who was the voice of American censorship: mmm,...
