Sports section now all about feelings

As you probably know by now, I'm a red-blooded, meat-eating, beer-can-crushing-on-the-forehead kind of fellow who laughs at Three Stooges stunts (I love it when the guy with the ladder pivots suddenly and brains the other idiot HAHAHAHAHAHAHA) and thinks the...

Peter Orszag runs wild

Stretch your brain

I'm twirling plates, herding cats. Or maybe I'm twirling cats and herding plates. Busy though I might be, much of it is familiar, a series of routines and rituals, and even when I write a story saying they found a...

Gobs and gobs of galaxies

[From Hubble Space Telescope, WFC3] Here at the American Astronomical Society, I'm thinking there really ought to be more discussion of nearby astronomical objects like the moon, Mars, Venus or even the sun. Familiar stuff you can see with...

More weird worlds

I hate those supernovae

[Not a supernova but still something to run from, if you ask me.] I'm at the American Astronomical Society meeting at Woodley Park, making sure that space is behaving properly. Most people look at space with awe and wonder;...

Jim Zorn's valedictory game
