I once wrote a farce called ``Typo','' about a newspaper changing ownership and managment. The stress level on the staff was extreme, so the typographical errors multiplied. The more tension, the more typo's. The inverted pyramid was atwirl. Natural farce stuff. Of course, typo's are much feared by...

Hi. My name is Sam and I am a candy addict. God it feels good to say that. I think I’ll have a piece of gum to celeb—No! Let me start over. My name is Sam and I am a candy addict. I roam the HarperOne offices (I work there, so I do have a reason to be roaming around), searching, always searching...

I write way too much about online dating, but this blog topic suggestion immediately inspired a cherished memory of just that.  It’s the kind of memory I like to pull out of my back pocket and share it with whomever seems like they will enjoy a good chuckle over someone else’s faulty spell checking...

I’m always up for an adventure. When I lived in New Hampshire I used to fish in the fast-moving icy streams of early spring, hike the towering peaks of the Presidential Range in the blistering summer heat, and track wild game in late fall and early winter. So when my wife wanted to journey into the...

A photographic portrait of the late Benjamin Arnold Guppy, entitled 'Old Blue Eyes', went on display at The Tata Gallery of Modern Art in Sea View this weekend, much to the annoyance of his widow, Patricia Enid Guppy, who has been campaigning tirelessly to prevent the work from going on show.

  Taken from Pat's work in progress, 'Weaned on a Pickle: The Autobiography of Patricia Enid Guppy'. What many of you may not know, but cannot be surprised to hear, is that I am descended from the noblest of families. Indeed, one ancestor, by the name of Cecil Cobbler-Stowe, high sheriff of...

Now that it has been established by leaders and commentators across the political spectrum that the Obama administration is a failure, Americans everywhere must reassess their positions and plans for the three years that remain. This is good news for the Democrats: they no longer need to figure out...
