Ivory-billed Woodpeckers Sighted!!

It's not every day that an "extinct" species comes back to life. (Next: The passenger pigeon.) Look at this breaking bulletin from the Science magazine folks. They've analyzed a video frame by frame and concluded that there really is...

Latest Rough Draft: More Solo Dad

Here's my latest Sunday column, a rip-off of previous blog items about being Solo Dad. I plagiarize myself with wild abandon, and by gosh it feels good. Sorry some of the links on this blog don't work lately. Hal's...

American Idol Scandal

American Idol last night was a slow-motion multi-car pileup. Bo and Vonzell sang well, but Bo isn't really an amateur singer (he's secretly about 50 years old). Carrie won't get voted out, because she is the floor model at...

Brian Greene

There are a lot of bad links on the blog right now, probably because dot.com changed publishing systems (I have no idea what that means, exactly). I can't fix the links because I don't know how to get into...

No Flaming, Please

I commend to everyone the comments posted in answer to Tom's daffy speed of light question (previous item), but must warn readers that we will not tolerate flaming. Vituperativeness is forbidden on this blog! What happened, in this case,...
