I don’t mean to be overly critical, but the passive language in the headline is bullshit. The lede is much better. “...car drives into a crowd of people” vs. “...man drove his car into a group of people” is a big difference.

I work in public relations as public information officer for a large agency in one of the biggest cities in the country. That reads like a humblebrag, and I don’t know, maybe it is, but the point is that there are hundreds of hours of video and audio of me and thousands of quotes in print and online and I can honestly Read more

I’m within a couple hours drive of this and have been kicking around the idea of getting a convertible for weekends and heading over the hill to the coast, etc. I’ve been looking at mostly older, and considerably shittier cars than this, but fuck me if I’m not tempted to at least go check out and drive this thing...

I booked a trip to the Big Island about a month ago. I have a friend with an AirBnb in Kona who gave me a friends and family discount that was too good to pass up, so I sent him money, booked flights, then looked into rental cars. I, a brain genius, had not been following any news about the rental car market (and this Read more

I grew up in far northern California and drove over Shasta Lake dozens of times a year until I moved away when I was 20 or so. I drove over it a couple weeks ago for the first time in a year and half or so and it was probably the lowest I’ve ever seen it, which is really something considering we’re not even officially Read more

Annually, usually right before we close for a couple weeks around the holidays. I forgot to wash it in 2019 though, and wasn’t there to wash it in 2020, so it’ll have been a few years before it gets its next wash.

I worked in morning radio for years and never drank coffee while waking up daily at 3:00 a.m. Started drinking it regularly shortly after switching careers and have a normal 9:00 - 5:00 schedule.

Shhh...the French executive with no children is telling us everything we do wrong. You should just listen and learn...

Yeah. I’m not gonna ride for Jay Williams or anything, but Durant has lost the benefit of the doubt.

I’ve only had food poisoning once, and all signs pointed to the cream cheese from a local bagel shop. Read more

Had my vasectomy scheduled before we were out of the hospital with our second.  We both wanted two kids, dodged a bullet when second turned out to have briefly had a twin (never developed and was absorbed within a few weeks, so no weird vestigal twin limbs or anything...), so when the doctor asked if we needed a Read more

Still haven’t eaten in a restaurant, but my first outdoor dining on the restaurant patio rather than takeout was tacos, chips and guacamole, and mezcal margaritas. And, in fact, that’s sounding mighty tasty right now. I may go back tonight!

My favorite cussing moment with my kids came when my daughter was four and I said something then said “Sorry, I shouldn’t say that in front of you. Please don’t repeat that.” She said “It’s okay daddy, I already know all the bad words.” Then I gave her a get-out-of-jail-free card to share with me all the bad words she Read more

Of all of Wes Anderson’s films, this looks like it may be the Wes Andersoniest.

Anyone who has mezcal, cynar, sherry, and Peychaud’s on hand is someone after my own heart. Please let me know what you think...

Tobacco Road. It’s 1.5 oz mezcal, 1.25 oz cynar, 0.5 oz sherry, and a couple dashes of Peychaud’s. It’s certainly not for everyone and was for a cocktail party where we had four rounds of cocktails that started very accessible and easy for anyone (fruity and sweet) and got progressively more adventurous. I was tasked Read more
