The Ascent of the A-Word: Assholism and the First 60 Years. by Geoffrey Nunberg Book Review It is delightful that a respected linguist would take up the challenge of writing about an inelegant word that has become a staple of our spoken language. Although it is not surprising as his other books...

When I learned that my book was accepted into the National Press Club Book Fair, I was ecstatic. And when I saw who would exhibit alongside me in DC on November 15, I felt like a Born Again come to Rapture! But I had no idea I would soon experience a different kind of rapture, born not of a...

You'll have to do some work here: first, folo the link to Jo Rowling's "Single-Mother Manifesto" op-ed in the Times of London... and then back to my own somewhat cranky response, below. Then you can argue with Ann Coulter, who unknowingly chimed in on a recent discussion among writers of the...

"How to Succeed in the 2000s"   I’ll pull some hair. I’ll kick a head. I’ll toss a drink. I’ll scratch blood red.   I’ll roll my eyes. I’ll spit, I’ll stare. I’ll throw a punch. I’ll yank a chair.   I’ll make a page. I’ll write a post. I’ll YouTube it (I’ll find a host)....

Let’s play a game, shall we? The name of the game is called "Imagine." The way it’s played is simple: we’ll envision recent happenings in the news, but then change them up a bit. Instead of envisioning white people as the main actors in the scenes we’ll conjure--the ones who are driving...

(The following blog was originally posted at Beliefnet.com, where I debate leading Religious Right attorney, Jay Sekulow.)

I am a Democrat. I have voted democratic most of the time for most of my life. And I am a liberal. (Note to Ann Coulter: not all Democrats are liberals.) I am also a writer, musician, and a guy who works in publishing (though I do work for HarperCollins, which is owned by Rupert Murdoch), so it is...
