BritNews RoundUp: What's That in Your Pants?

A quick skip through Fleet Street's week, with stories from Britain you might have missed: A few weeks back I shared the story of a man arrested in Australia for trying to smuggle pigeons into that country by strapping them...

Read John Kelly's E-mail

My life is pretty much an open book, what with five columns a week, at least five blog postings, a Friday online chat and my MTV reality show, "House of John." Until now, however, my e-mail has been pretty much...

Advice and Dissent: Young Self, Meet Old Self

So, in yesterday's column I published reader comments on an earlier column about growing older. I closed with the lament of a reader who wished someone had told her when she was younger about the depredations of aging. That inspired...

McGruff: Taking It on the Chin

Poor McGruff. It's bad enough that he can't talk--no mascots can--and that he looks like he stepped out of the 1970s (Columbo called; he wants his trench coat back), now he's getting punched. Over the weekend a Metro bus driver...

Stops, Lies and Videotape: That P.G. Traffic Stop

On the one hand, Rafael A. Rodriguez didn't get out of his car when the police officers asked him to. On the other hand, he didn't look very threatening. On the other hand, he was clearly uncooperative. On the other,...

Tropical Blast

On many a day I walk past Silver Spring's Tropical Lagoon. The aquarium supply store seemed like the perfect place to spend a few snowy hours yesterday. You may have noticed that a lot of people who like one sort...

Where in Washington?

Finally, the Perfect Storm

I lay in bed around 5:30 this morning wondering if it had really snowed. The TV weather people said it would, but they seem to get it wrong as often as they get it right. But something seemed different. The...
