Amateur Hour Over

The Big Dog is back, as of Monday. You won't have us cheap immitations to kick around any more. It's been a privilege. I promise to come up with another Dumb Question soon, unless that is a threat. Shroder out....

Ob-blogation

Sydney tells me that if I don't do at least two posts I'm cheaping out, letting the team down. Which is fine, except for certain non-Joel-like individuals, blogging isn't exactly as natural as breathing. Even for that pathetic little post...

Kids Who Shop Too Much

I finally figured out the comments feature. And here I was getting my feelings hurt. Of course, I TOLD Joel that I had a lot on my plate. First he made it seem like he was crowning me queen for...

The New Sucker

This is not Joel. I'm Sydney, his editor (and female, in case you're wondering.) He guilted me into doing this, and I have to say that when I heard the news this morning about the horrific terrorist attack on the...

Fisher Out. Next Victim.

Well, it's been swell, folks. My stint as Non-Achen Blogman ends this evening. To all of you, even the Betcha can't eat just one M&M crowd, thanks for sticking with me and thanks for the comments and the kindness you've...

Supreme Knowledge

   Enough Lamenting the Past. It's time for our daily dose of Predicting the Future.    In the past 24 hours, I have had conversations with two lawyers, one a Democrat who worked on the selection of a Supreme Court...

Gray Felt Suite

   If we were inside a 70s conspiracy movie, the death today of L. Patrick Gray would immediately be tagged as the work of the FBI, CIA, Trilateral Commission and/or the Illuminati. Maybe the Masons, too. But wasn't he just...

More Guns, Less Democracy

   That a bunch -- well, a huge number -- of Republicans in Congress would come up with the idea of appealing to their red-meat base back home by ripping up the District of Columbia's gun ban and forcing the...

Mr. Sensitivity

   Maryland's Gov. Bobby Haircut, the guy who went on the radio some months back and said that multiculturalism is "crap" and "bunk," has a way with symbolic actions. For his latest trick, he held a fundraiser at a country...

Pork News

   The Post Gets Action:    The day's not yet half gone and today's column is still on the newsstands and on the home page of the big web site, and already Aramark, the food service company that serves RFK...

Those Amazin' Nats and Why They Should Be America's Team

Batman the Capitalist

   The Post's movie critic, Ann Hornaday, had a nifty little piece in Sunday's paper (http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2005/07/01/AR2005070100370.html) in which she reveals that the libertarian blogworld has latched onto "Batman Begins" as a rare Hollywood endorsement of America's anti-government, pro-individual heritage.

Pseudo-Faux-Sorta-Achenblog
