I’ve never been to jail (except as a visitor to an incarcerated uncle and once to bail out a bone-headed friend who got busted for DUI). I hope to maintain my lifelong record of non-incarceration. Jail is so unpleasant. But prison movies / television shows — now there’s a genre that just seems to inspire [Read more...] This space reserved for your ad.
Since you can’t make this stuff up, I won’t bother trying. Instead, a quick recap: Early today, my editor e-mailed to ask if I’d write about Mitt Romney’s upcoming announcement.

In 2015, the only people out there who have any real use for Craigslist are hookers and serial murderers. Personally speaking, I haven't used the site since 2009, when my wife and I bought an outdoor playhouse from a lady nearby. Turned out the playhouse had a colony of yellowjackets inside of it. Craigslist is less than useful. It is the internet's bear trap. Read more...
When I read posts like the one I read today, "Defending My Daughter's Special Diet," I want to throw my computer out the window. People who are difficult about their kid's diet for reasons other than medical reasons are totally within their rights as a parent. Show More Summary

A few years ago some members of a couple of different Austin-based bluegrass bands got together for some late night jamming and out of it came one of my favorite bluegrass albums of 2013, the self-titled Wood & Wire. The boys are now releasing their follow-up album, The Coast. There’s an occasionally recurring theme that […]

WHILE I WAS OUT RUNNING ERRANDS AND AT THE GYM, Mitt Romney Announced He Won’t Run. I hope, however, that he’ll keep taking shots at Obama, Hillary, et al. Meanwhile, does this mean that my prediction about a “head fake” toward the presidency was right? Stay tuned.
Q: My boyfriend gave me a new iPhone 6 Plus for Christmas, and having the bigger screen is really super. But there’s this one thing annoying me that I can’t figure out how to fix. Sometimes — I think when I touch the home button a certain way — the screen sort of slides halfway down. Show More Summary
Saving dessert till last! On January 28, I went out to the Sax-Zim Bog with my friend Bruce Pomeroy. We both wanted to see some northern specialties for the new year, plus I was scouting out the area because I’ll be taking a friend from Florida there this weekend and want to find as many northern birds as I can for him.

One question not addressed in my column around CNN taking out a full-page ad to taunt MSNBC's Morning Joe for falling to 4th place in the cable news morning race was the "why" aspect. To that end, I reached out to a senior executives at CNN for comment, and that person had plenty to say on the matter:
