As of half past ten this morning, I am a homeowner. I can’t tell you how strange it is to walk into an office and tell someone “How about loaning me a couple of hundred thousand dollars? C’mon, you know I am good for it…” Here are some pictures of the house. Next up? Kitchen […]

A Victory for, er, Democracy

Sure thing, just ask Robert Fisk (warning, that’s a pay link. I bet you’ll think of something…), the last journalist not cowering in his hotel room in Baghdad… The media boys and girls will be expected to play along with this. ‘Transition of power,’ says the hourly logo on CNN’s live coverage of the election, […]

Shopping List

Mrs. Dog is acting in a theater production of The Diary of Anne Frank right now. Went to see it last night. It’s a good production, Mrs. Dog is, as always, a stellar actor, and the show is, despite its tiny handful of faults, moving and frightening. Lately, I have been thinking about the Nazis […]

After moving I have to figure out what to do about kitchen cabinets and closet space, since this little farmhouse is pretty spare on both. After that, it should be getting close to tilling time. Then chickens. Hopefully, shortly after that, […]

Payola stops here

Right? I mean, now that they’ve been busted twice…. After the revelation that another columnist who supported his administration’s policies received government money, President Bush said Wednesday that he disapproved of the practice and wanted it to stop. Please. Don’t. Stop.

Sugartime, ladies!

Josh Marshall points us towards this: The nation’s new education secretary denounced PBS on Tuesday for spending public money on a cartoon with lesbian characters, saying many parents would not want children exposed to such lifestyles.
