Spring Training

I'm writing this poolside at a place called the Martindale. It's not exactly the Ritz, but it's terrific, an Art Deco hotel in Fort Lauderdale with no more than a dozen rooms or so, a kidney-shaped pool and a...

Nothing in the Hands

One of my friends is appalled by the previous post about the orange grove. Okay, I admit it, I didn't steal any oranges. I didn't even think about stealing any oranges. Even the ones on the ground, I stayed...

The Spaceship

Yesterday I had a tour of the space shuttle, or at least I think it was the space shuttle -- you can't really tell, because it's so completely surrounded by hardware, pipes, platforms, wires, etc. There was some kind...

The Pressure of a Boondoggle

My friends are giving me grief for this trip to Florida, which they view as a boondoggle. What they don't realize is that a boondoggle has its own set of pressures. Indeed the stress of being here in such...

Bulletin from Florida

After 33 years of waiting, Washington baseball fans today finally had the chance to watch a major league baseball game featuring a Washington team. It happened in a cow pasture in Florida, in the alleged town of "Viera." It's...

The Mysterious Key

A couple of weeks ago I found a mysterious key in the trunk of my car. As a general rule, I don't put keys in the trunk. No corpses had been stuffed in there after a gangland murder, so...

Worries

Sometimes you realize you're worried but you can't remember what you're worried about. You know there's something out there, a thing that was worry-worthy. You ransack your memory. Gone. It has become a stray worry. It's a worry on...

Do Newspapers Have a Future?

Jim Varney Overlooked Again

Dave Letterman sure had a good night. Chris Rock is brilliant, but Shales called it right this morning. The standup act doesn't always translate onto an Oscar stage; they should have let him curse, say whatever he wanted, let...
