One of the bennies from growing older is that I've learned more about myself.  I've discovered that I have compulsive streaks.  I like routines and when I find things that interest me, they can swallow me and suck time out of my life.  Work is always a time suck for me.   I...

Last night on Fox News. Bob Beckel said he thought pornography should be banned. Let me go on the record. Finally, I agree. It should be. It never will be. Constitutionally, it is by and large free speech. The ACLU and the courts would never allow it. While conservatives give lip service to it, the...

  I’m looting my neighbor’s garden. Looting light, I would call it. Everyone has been evacuated and I’m one of the few remaining at the Jersey shore during Hurricane Irene. I grab a few ripe tomatoes, a batch of heady oregano. It’s all going to drown tomorrow anyway.   God, it’s so...
