BritNews RoundUp: Photo Funnies Edition

I don't have the patience and dexterity to turn my garage into a high-speed, macrophotography workshop, but I'm glad that Alan Sailer does. The artist sets up all sorts of things on golf tees -- strawberries, Christmas ornaments, paintballs --...

Burglar, Alarmed: What Do You Think?

Not long ago I heard about something unusual that happened in a suburb of Washington. The people involved were still trying to figure out how they felt about it -- and, indeed, what the legal ramifications might be -- and...

Stockholm Syndrome

Someone sent me this link yesterday. If you are into 1970s cheese I suggest you click on it. It takes you to a page called "Swedish Dance Bands From the '70s." And that's exactly what it is: photo after photo...

Out of Africa

If you were a ghost there would be worse places to haunt than the Library of Congress. I could happily while away eternity there, my insubstantial form sliding through the stacks, pausing to read all the things I never...

The Wonderful World of Crime, Part 2

I was wondering exactly which Dulles Town Center kiosk Jhonny Lopez bombed with his Disney Store snow globe. I just got this picture from the Commonwealth's Attorney's office: It was a cell phone store. I'm not surprised, given how annoyingly...

The Big Picture(s): Special, Blog-Only Bonus!

I guess there wasn't room to run a photo with my column in the newspaper today. It'd be a shame if it went to waste. Here are Jean-Jacques Retourne, general manager of Citronelle, Shannon Overmiller of The Majestic Cafe and...

The Wonderful World of Crime

The criminal mind is a fascinating thing, especially to those of us who aren't criminals. I confess it's kind of entertaining, too. Why do bad guys do what they do? For example, on Monday, March 16, in Loudoun County Circuit...

Where in Washington?

Last week's contest was the toughest yet. I didn't receive a correct answer until Tuesday. Charles Boyle knew that the postcard showed the Shoreham Hotel (today the Omni Shoreham). How will you fare this week? See if you can identify...

Do As They Say: Advice (and Dissent?)

The Post missed a nifty marketing opportunity today. We could have included a big grain of salt with each copy of the newspaper. That's exactly what you should take with my column today. I asked readers to send in the...
