People write in to tell me I’m a troll. Am I?
To me a troll is one who, as it were, goes to his neighbor’s house and urinates in the shrubbery. I, on the other hand, write for my own site and for that of my employer. The New York Post is known for its attitude, [...]
My previous post (see below) has attracted notice. From Laos to Lansing, every cultural observer and unemployed film critic clenches his molars and pounds the keyboard. The circuits of the Internet glow like neon. Somewhere in Silicon Valley, a server farm groans and buckles with the strain of the traffic. Cisco stock soars. The national [...]
Warning — a lot of these are liberal sites. But there are also lots of right-thinking ones you may not have heard of.
Cheers to Ed Driscoll for the mention at InstaPundit. Ed’s excellent blog is here.
Tireless blog commenter, actor and playwright Hunter Tremayne is on the mend, having suffered a heart attack this past winter and having had multiple-bypass surgery in the interests of ticker repair. Hunter says he’s feeling much better after some scary weeks and promises to be fit to keep calling Republicans knuckle-dragging Bible-thumping trogs well into [...]

Here’s the thing about “false” — it’s usually one opinion against [...]
A lovely appreciation of Denis Dutton, the editor of the essential site Arts and Letters Daily. Honor him by checking out the site.
Eastwood tells truths. America’s elite has a problem. It’s skinny jeans and scarves, it’s Bama bangs and pants with tiny, tiny embroidered lobsters, it’s Michael Cera, it’s guys who compliment a girl’s dress by brand, it’s guys who don’t know who bats fourth for the Yankees. Between the hipsters and the fratstars, American intellectual men [...]
A Slate profile isn’t as much of a slam job as you’d expect. It says he used to be internet-famous but is now famous-famous and portrays him as fox-crazy rather than crazy-crazy.
It is a bit of a bore when bloggers say that someone who disagrees with them is “frothing at the mouth” or “crazy mad.” It’s a way to say: I don’t have to deal with your arguments because I rule them beyond the bounds of rational discussion. Really, this is rhetorical weak sauce. It would [...]« Previous Entries
