The Years Of Writing Dangerously

Thirteen years ago, as I was starting to experiment with this blogging thing, I wrote the following: [T]he speed with which an idea in your head reaches thousands of other people’s eyes has another deflating effect, this time in reverse: It ensures that you will occasionally blurt out things that are offensive, dumb, brilliant, or […]

The Miracle Of Francis

One sub-themes of the Dish has long been my passionate, tortured relationship with the Catholic Church. This decade and a half exposed the unspeakable child abuse epidemic in the church, leaving me utterly unmoored and gutted. My faith life during all these years sputtered, lingered, and at times opened onto a dry, bleak wasteland. I […]

Living The Dishhead Dream

by Chas Danner I’m a reader. That’s how this ride started for me. Seven years ago there was, and still is, no better place on the Internet for keeping abreast of news, arguments, ideas, and the penetrating thoughts and experiences of complete strangers – the Dish’s readers. Finding the Dish was a revelation. I was […]

As The World Turns

Yesterday, this news broke: U.S. House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) declined to offer his hopes for litigation seeking marriage rights for same-sex couples before the U.S. Supreme Court, but said he doesn’t expect House Republicans will weigh in on the issue. “I don’t expect that we’re going to weigh in on this,” Boehner said. “The […]

A Note To Our Readers, Ctd

One of countless readers asks: OK, no more begging for site to continue, EXCEPT can you please leave it up for those of us who want to go back to read past weekend posts? These don’t have an expiration date. My weekends are so busy that I often don’t get a chance to explore all […]

How I Met Andrew Sullivan

by Matthew Sitman One of the first questions I get when a person finds out I work at the Dish, and that Andrew is not just my boss but my friend, is about how we met. Unlike most of my generation, and probably most readers of this blog, I first encountered Andrew’s writing in his […]

Your Moments Of Dishness

Yesterday we made one final bleg requesting “your favorite moment of Dishness” – and you delivered in spades, as you always do. It’s hard to disagree with this reader’s pick: Your wedding, plain and simple. The photos, the setting, the dogs, the look in your faces: I’ve been reading you for 10+ years and you […]

How To Read The Entire Internet

by Patrick Appel “Send me five links a day” was the original job Andrew gave me. Now, in the more than seven years since then, I have almost certainly read more than a million blog posts. It is entirely possible, during that time, that I have read more posts than anyone else on the planet. […]

Quote For The Day

By Maurice Sendak: “But the wild things cried, “Oh please don’t go – we’ll eat you up – we love you so!” And Max said, “No!” The wild things roared their terrible roars and gnashed their terrible teeth and rolled their terrible eyes and showed their terrible claws but Max stepped into his private boat […]

A Poem For Andrew

by Alice Quinn For Andrew, essential defender of parity in the sphere of love: That Love is all there is, Is all we know of Love; It is enough, the freight should be Proportioned to the groove. –Emily Dickinson (1830-1886)

The War

That’s what changed me – and this blog. That’s what changed America. And that’s why Obama is president. When I look back on the stumbling, reversed, jagged path I found myself taking with you over the past decade, it is the war that looms largest. It showed me the callowness of neoconservative certainty – a […]

Quote For The Day II

“The world cannot be a problem to anyone who sees that ultimately Christ, the world, his brother and his own inmost ground are made one and the same in grace and redemptive love. If all the current talk about the world helps people to discover this, then it is fine. But if it produces nothing […]

Know Scope

Marcelo Gleiser reminds us that, even though science has not yet detected gravitational waves from the Big Bang, “we should take note of what we do know about the early universe, which is nothing short of spectacular”: We know that the universe is about 13.8 billion years old (a number that, updated from 13.7, has […]

A Short Story For Thursday

This selection is one of Ernest Hemingway’s most brilliant and enduring, “Big Two-Hearted River.” The story deserves a patient, close reading; perhaps no better example of Hemingway’s distinctive prose style exists. Here’s how it begins: The train went on up the track out of sight, around one of the hills of burnt timber. Nick sat […]

Exiting The Anxiety Closet

Maria Bamford, a Dish fave, exited through comedy: Scott Stossel reflects on his decision to open up about his chronic anxiety: I revealed my anxiety and … the world didn’t end. Did friends and colleagues talk about me behind my back? Maybe. Probably. (O.K., definitely.) But for the most part people didn’t seem to treat […]

Dudes On Diets, Ctd

A reader brings a personal touch to this topic: This subject is near-and-dear to my heart. I was a college athlete who never had to even think about what I ate to maintain low bodyfat. Then my workouts dropped to, say, 20% of what I had been doing when I stopped playing college bball and […]
