Here's to Hamlet - Friday, March 12th 2010 1:25 AM
Nothing like a little Shakespeare to get the analytical thoughts flowing. I haven't been close to the Bard since 2008, when I saw a very decent production of TWELFTH NIGHT at...
Ready for Round Two - Sunday, February 14th 2010 6:33 PM
I guess a snow-freee winter was too much to ask for. Sure, December and January were cold but, here in NEPA, we managed to escape the waves of snow that kept blanketing much of...
WOTY 2009 - Sunday, January 10th 2010 10:07 AM
In the previous entry, I mentioned that the AMERICAN DIALECT SOCIETY would soon choose the 2009 Word of the Year. And, so it has - along with the Word of the Decade and a...
The Word on Corruption - Tuesday, December 22nd 2009 11:56 PM
Can you feel the anticipation? In just a couple short weeks from now, the AMERICAN DIALECT SOCIETY will reveal its choice for the 2009 Word of the Year (WOTY). Early nominations...
What Holiday Mode? - Thursday, December 17th 2009 10:03 PM
With only two weeks left in the year, everyone at work is in full holiday mode. That means lots of people on vacation, and the people who are at work really need time...
Pick a Seat (but not that one) - Sunday, November 22nd 2009 3:55 PM
So, I went to the movies this afternoon. It doesn't matter what movie I saw because it's not really relevant to the story. What does matter is that there were, I think, seven...
Wrapping Things Up - Thursday, November 5th 2009 10:18 AM
My stress level is a lot lower today due to the fact that (thankfully) Election Day is over and (sadly) so is the World Series. Tuesday's elections - in my view, anyway - did...
DP3 - Friday, October 23rd 2009 5:59 PM
Halloween is almost here and that means the end of one Death Pool season and the start of another. This past season was pretty good for me, Lady Macbeth. Three people on my...
Sounds like ... - Thursday, October 15th 2009 9:47 AM
First of all, it sounds like winter is getting an early start. The forecast for today and tomorrow calls for snow, especially in the higher elevations. Could be three inches or...
Just When You Thought ... - Monday, October 12th 2009 11:46 AM
... that maybe I had given up on this blog thing comes a sign that, no, I have not. For me, the sign came this morning in the form of an AP article stating that Pennsylvania is...
Catching Up - Tuesday, September 22nd 2009 11:33 AM
Today seems to be a day for tying up loose ends. I've finished the ironing that I didn't get to over the weekend, made an appointment with the bank, and made the bed. So, while...
Cat People - Saturday, August 29th 2009 6:21 PM
I am not a cat person, but I do like "Cat People." I especially like how Quentin Tarantino utilized this '80s classic in "INGLOURIOUS BASTERDS," his film set in the '40s....
Random Thoughts - Monday, August 24th 2009 12:20 PM
I've been thinking about posting for a while, but never seemed motivated by one particular thought. I guess I have now compiled enough particular thoughts to make posting worth...
How I Spent My Summer Vacation - Sunday, August 9th 2009 7:11 PM
JAMANI DRUMMERS: Saw this act at Musikfest. They're ladies from the Lehigh Valley channelling the rhythms of Africa and the Caribbean! They performed at Volksplatz. VALERIE...
Questions, Questions, Questions - Sunday, July 26th 2009 7:40 PM
I have a lot of questions rolling around in my mind these days, not the least of which is whether the Phillies will trade for Roy Halladay. So, now that you know where my...
The Fourth Plinth - Sunday, July 12th 2009 1:03 PM
What the hell is a plinth? I didn't know either, until I came across THIS article in the Guardian newspaper in Britain. It defines a plinth as "an architectural setting for...
Weird til the End - Saturday, June 27th 2009 5:19 PM
Leave it to Michael Jackson. On the same day that cultural icon Farrah Fawcett passed away, only someone with the stature of the King of Pop could steal the headlines. Just when...
On the Road Again - Saturday, June 13th 2009 9:46 PM
Just when you thought it was safe to travel Interstate 80 for free, along comes word that plans to convert I-80 through Pennsylvania into a toll road are not dead yet. To...
Bad Movies - Thursday, May 28th 2009 12:00 AM
At work tonight, with just a few minutes to go before news time, one of my co-workers came to me with a problem. He is compiling a list of his top five worst movies of all...
Primary Colors - Wednesday, May 20th 2009 3:50 PM
Primary 2009 has come and gone and, as with any election, there were a few surprises (at least from my perspective, skewed and/or uninformed as it may be). Let's start in...
Election Preview - Saturday, May 9th 2009 6:25 PM
I'm back!  Now that my classes at LCCC are almost over, I finally had some time to work on my Web site and update the POLITICS page. The primary is only 10 days away, so...
I'm Still Here - Saturday, April 18th 2009 12:36 AM
Wow.  I know I've been kind of lame of late, but it's been about two weeks since I posted anything.  I even missed a music video weekend.  Shame on me. My excuse...
Ghost Town Candy - Saturday, April 4th 2009 9:12 AM
Lately, when I tune into one of my FAVORITE radio stations, I hear a song called "Ghost Town" by Shiny Toy Guns. I like it. Embedding on the OFFICIAL music video is disabled,...
Smokin' in the Boys' Room - Saturday, March 28th 2009 11:01 PM
One of the things that has struck me about the so-called "Cash for Kids" scandal is just how minor some of the offenses were that landed these kids in detention. I'm not saying...
Kids for Cash? - Saturday, March 28th 2009 6:55 PM
As I have noted before on this blog, when Northeast PA makes national news, it's almost never for something positive. A couple years ago, we - well, Pennsylvania - made the LEAD...
