My daughter left

My daughter left for her freshman year of college today. We drove her to campus, helped set up her stuff, grabbed lunch. Then pretty much left. And I was fine. Really, I was fine. But now, sitting here at 9:10 on a Saturday night, I’m broken. Casey is our first

The Radicalization of Mark Mulder

If I had the time, and the energy, and the non-financial needs, I’d love, love, love to write a 5,000-word piece on the political radicalization of Mark Mulder, former (enjoyable, agreeable, friendly) Oakland A’s pitcher-turned-hard-right zealot. In case you don’t follow Mark on Twitter, well, I wouldn’t start now (unless

Thank you, Anthony Sherman

Dear Anthony Sherman: Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! This morning I saw your courageous Tweet about NFL teams requiring COVID bracelets to identify those who have been vaccinated and those who have not. Here it is … Again, thank you. What this world needs, now more than ever, is

Who’s the pussy?

Received this e-mail a few moments ago … To say I love this e-mail is to delve into the greatest of understatement. It features all the hallmarks of excellence. In no particular order … • Irrational and inexplicable capitalization. • “Friends” “in” “quotes.” Are they not my friends? Or “friends”?

I love crosstown trades

So earlier today the Chicago Cubs sent pitcher Ryan Tepera across town to the White Sox, in exchange for a lefthander named Bailey Horn. I have never heard of Tepera. I have never heard of Horn. But I’m 100 percent all in on this deal. In short, as a native
