The Ultimate Car For The Freelancer

The world has changed. My lordy has it ever, but I’m not going too far down that rabbit hole here. In this one specific way, the world has changed dramatically from when my dad was young and from when my older brothers were growing up, because no longer do we […]

At Home in La La Land

There were supposed to be more hours to kill in paradise on that Thursday morning. I’d gone Into The Mystic the evening prior, staying up later than advisable if not for the anticipation of a morning spent peacefully under a puffed white duvet until the haze of morning had faded […]

The Exhilaration of Kia Niro Sport Mode Is My 7 Seconds In Heaven

We passed through the toll booth together, neck and neck, me in lustrous jolly red, you in a dashing silver that glittered in the midday summer sun. We were a sexy pair. Lazily acquiescing to your forward momentum, I fell in line as we approached the bend in the on-ramp […]

No Longer A Part Of The Club

Joining isn’t the most popular verb in my own personal vernacular. There’s my local PBS affiliate and the non-commercial listener-supported radio station — I joined both of those a few years ago. More recently, I joined the ACLU, Total Soccer Show Scouting Network and the Radiotopia Podcast Network. Really though, […]

How Craft Root Beers Are Like Van Halen’s Brown M&M’s
