  • Dave Letterman: 'Why,' you ask?

    I love Dave Letterman. He's my idea of the funniest man in America. I appreciate his intellect, his quirky, irritated ideas about what's funny, and certainly respect his right to whatever opinions he has about anything. I confess he irks me with his nightly ridicule and denigration of our president. He's really got it in for George Bush, and he and the staff select little snippets of speeches, or a stumble, or a door that doesn't open, or even just a little aside and shoulder-shaking chuckle – anything that makes the president appear foolish – and revel in derisive laughter....
  • The boss is a jerk: survey

    01/04/2006 7:37:42 PM PST · by Aussie Dasher · 3 replies · 320+ views ^ | 5 January 2006
    IF you think your boss is a jerk you are not alone, a survey shows. A career website asked 520 people about working for arrogant, incompetent or sexist superiors and found 82 per cent said they had. And torment from the boss from hell forced more than half of them to quit their jobs in search of greener pastures. Only 8 per cent of those surveyed said they had the gumption to complain directly to their boss, while 21 per cent took it to the tea room, whinging to colleagues, supervisors or unfortunate partners. The most common attribute that made...
  • An Ill Wind Off Cape Cod (EnviroLeftists don't want windmills where THEY can see them)

    By R.F. Kennedy, Jr. AS an environmentalist, I support wind power, including wind power on the high seas. I am also involved in siting wind farms in appropriate landscapes, of which there are many. But I do believe that some places should be off limits to any sort of industrial development. I wouldn't build a wind farm in Yosemite National Park. Nor would I build one on Nantucket Sound, which is exactly what the company Energy Management is trying to do with its Cape Wind project. Environmental groups have been enticed by Cape Wind, but they should be wary of...

    I put a $50 pre-order on an Xbox 360 in August 2005. The video game store employee (a walking commercial on why to go to college) promised a delivery date of November 23, 2005. Yesterday, the store left an auto mated message; "Microsoft is not going to deliver the quantity of Xboxes they promised. Your Xbox won't arrive until 2006." Unfortunately, my kids played the answering machine before I got home from work. It was a shock and disappointment for them, as several did not know I ordered it. I can only find mention on news of a delayed launch...

    Barry Bonds had arthroscopic surgery on his right knee in January. He's still out. Gives a man time to think, a long leave of absence like that. About his life. About his career. About whether it makes sense to come back at all. Crazy talk? Well, sure, but tell me what about Barry's recent behavior has been particularly bright.

    San Francisco Chronicle ^ | 8/3/5 | Mark Morford
    Stadium crowds, thousands of rabid devotees, all chugging Jesus like Kool-Aid. Should you be afraid? I have never been to a big creepy megachurch. This is my first confession. I have never been to, say, Lakewood Church in Houston, the biggest glossiest megachurch of all, which just dumped a staggering $75 million to renovate the former stadium for the Houston Rockets and turn it into a massive pulsing swaying arm-raisin' eye-glazed weirdly repressed House o' Jesus. I have never been to World Changers in Georgia or New Birth Missionary Baptist in Texas or Calvary Chapel in Costa Mesa or...
  • Year After Admitting Affair With a Man, Former New Jersey Governor Still Trying to Find His Niche

    RAHWAY, N.J. (AP) - A year after his life imploded in scandal, former New Jersey Gov. James E. McGreevey lives in self-imposed exile, avoiding the limelight he spent a lifetime chasing. Separated from the wife he betrayed, McGreevey lives modestly in a one-bedroom apartment. He takes his 3-year-old daughter out for bacon and eggs after Sunday church services, walks to a corner newsstand for coffee and newspapers and stops to chat when passers-by recognize him. It's a long way from the stately governor's mansion and the spotlight that shone on his soul-baring confession. With wife Dina Matos McGreevey at his...

    IN RESPONSE to Cathy Young's column ''A moral muddle on the left" (op ed, July 18), I think she should note that although Osama bin Laden is undoubtedly offended by the gross materialism and decadence of Western secular capitalism, and although he skillfully uses the moral zealotry of Islam to forward his agenda, his agenda is quite straightforward and is not based on some categorical imperative to stamp out Western civilization and its freedoms. Rather one has only to read his own words during the past decade to realize that what drives his actions is a rather well articulated agenda:...

    Dear Editor: It looks like the misdirected meatheads facing Mecca who believe Mohammed flew into heaven on a winged horse and the holy rolling wingnuts of the west that believe Jesus rose from the dead are going to continue to fight each other to the death (again), except for maybe when they take time out to fight the Jews to the death (again), who by the way don’t believe Jesus rose up from anywhere or that suicide bombers end up in paradise with 72 virgins. Though I have been told by some of my Jewish friends that they wouldn’t mind...
  • Bethrothal and Betrayal

    Before bigamist swindler William Barber married Donna and Joyce, he married Donna and Joyce. As well as Diana — and another woman. Barber was arrested this month in Wharton, N.J., on charges he listed a bogus name, birth date and Social Security number on his latest marriage license. Authorities say he married and ripped off at least six wives — including the two Donnas and Joyces — and others close to him believe he may have victimized as many as 12 brides.
