Its the readers of the Dish that make it the special blog it is. Here’s a post bouncing off an earlier post on arctic cold. I too remember when mere extreme cold was no call for a snow day. I recall, I think, that one of the first years I lived in Duluth we had […]
a much favorited Product review on hair removal product.
Its in the poem: Reverse a lynching by Ansel Elkins. I doubt if Sullivan knew in which city his photo was taken.
A new television program will soon be showing an apparently happy polygamous family. If, one might ask, if gay marriages are OK why not marriages with multiple partners? A very thoughtful article on the why nots starting with all the men who won’t get wives. In summary: “The problem in China and India is sex-selective […]
My Buddy sent me an email recently that I took to be dancing on the grave of my only serious blog addiction. Andrew Sullivan is planning on retiring. I hope he hands the reigns over to his crew and keeps some sort of remote executive function because I’ll miss his blog if it retires with […]
Andrew Sullivan’s Daily Dish has some thoughtful posts on black/white relations today. I’ll start with a startling one which shows a policeman’s dash cam just as he shoots a black man at a gas station. The black man yells “What did I do sir? off camera. “Sir.” The poor guy has bullet holes in his […]
Visitors to this blog know I opine about all sorts of stuff. The list on the right confirms that. But sometimes I switch to a single topic and stick with it even when other things are on my mind. Ferguson, Missouri is on my mind at the moment. Its not far from my son and […]
One of the top women finishers at Boston today used to run by my house every day in high school as she practiced for her cross country team. Kara Goucher came in sixth among the women contestants. Her efforts like those of all of the other competitors were overshadowed by the bombs which blew up […]
Also on the Daily Dish was a graph that blew me away. A longer version of it from the World Bank can be found here. This is another trend I’ve heard about. The flow of illegal immigrants from Mexico has been seizing up. It might be natural to think this is because of the hazards […]
I’d heard recently that American women’s longevity, which for so long exceeded men, was beginning to wane and men were catching up. That is what this map suggests. I found it on the Daily Dish with some interesting analysis. What I noticed about the map is that the locals where women’s longevity is taking the […]
By coincidence this book was mailed to me yesterday and I read its short introduction before going to bed. Then today this short excerpt from it ended up as a post in the Daily Dish. The list of books written by author Bailyn demonstrate that I’ve found a real expert on the subject.
Its eleven PM the night after I began the above named post. I’ve watched two more great hours of the British series The Hour. This season is every bit as engrossing as the first season. But now on to ramble and postpone sleep for another hour despite the likelihood that my grandsons will wake me […]
I’m certainly guilty of hyperbole when I scathingly generalize about Republicans. I’m pretty confident, if not over confident of my insights however because I was there with them for thirty years watching the party evolve and as a student of history looking back on their previous incarnations. I also believe I have some powers of […]
Sullivan’s Daily Dish has a number of posts today about how the GOP’s fanatics are determined to carry on the war against all things Obama in the wake of what this Heritage Club video calls a “devastating blow”: Apparently America is in danger of surrendering to the tyranny of fairness.
I watched Clinton’s Nomination Speech two hours after he gave it. He blew me away. My favorite tweet on a collection of them at the Daily Dish: Mike Drew@sfphotoman @sullydish the Democrats put there former presidents in prime time. The Republicans put theirs in the witness protection program.
From the Daily Dish. The District and JCI got our attorney just at the time he was about to be given access to it. Then they taught him a lesson by almost having him disbarred for his successful lawyering. Its too bad that Let Duluth Vote never got to peek at the Johnson Controls/Keith Dixon […]
I don’t give Andrew Sullivan his due so often any more. His blog is my principle filter for what’s going on in the world. Its as far ranging as the best newspapers and I enjoy his give and take with other smart people. He is far more willing to admit to mistakes than, for instance, […]
But then again, that’s nothing new for me. I’ve been running for political office since 1976 and always told voters I smoked marijuana. I completed the survey in Andrew Sullivan’s Daily Dish and I’m not so different than his other readers. By the way. I’d recommend the email to Sullivan at the end of the […]
…when I was 17 year’s old. I could support him today too. I was delighted to find this video clip on the Daily Dish. My Dad was a big Romney booster and was crushed that Romney’s line about his having been “brainwashed” in 1965 into thinking our growing Vietnam efforts were necessary should cause him […]
…and a big middle finger aimed at the neocons. This ad is an indictment of Obama as well and well deserved. I’ll have to admit, however, that Obama has acted the way he did in part because the Neocons were on his back and in part to avoid a collapse in Iraq like the shameful […]
