Privacy and capitalism both need to come to an end. Both will come to an end, if we’re lucky. Which should piss off just about everyone reading this. Those on the right will scream that capitalism is the best thing that ever happened to us, while agreeing that cops should perhaps bust down more doors and invade… more

In case you’ve been out of the loop, Amazon has opened a physical bookstore in Seattle. Yeah, a physical store from the online giant. It’s not your typical bookstore, though. For one thing, there are no set prices on titles. Rather, the price of the book is tied to the ever-fluctuating price at the online store.… more

Everything is different here. They drive on the wrong side of the road. The clutch is where it should be, but I’m sitting in the right hand side of the car, driving on the left hand side of the yellow line, traffic whizzing by. The gear shift is on my left. So is she. The… more

I’ve had a few Twitter followers ask me to update them when new releases come out. Guess what? Amazon has this figured out for us.

I was a handful as a child. My mother raised three of us on her own, often working three jobs, and I didn’t make it terribly easy on her. Even before my parents divorced, I was a lot to wrangle. But when I was four years old and still sucking my blankie, my mom had… more

Last night was a long time coming. After watching the setback of Prop 8 in California (the appeal is probably heading to the Supreme Court), the legalization of  same-sex marriage in New York feels like another jittery step forward in the march of ethical progress. It feels like the issue of gay rights, a movement that began… more

Is it a sign of Molly’s rise to stardom? Or is it the inevitable fate of any WordPress site that tries to make the site friendly to commenters? YES! We get one or two of these comments a day with links to pharmaceuticals and Nigerians in dire straits. So, I’m gonna try a new system… more

Unless you’re peering at this post through a straw, you’ve probably noticed a smattering of reviews have invaded the site. That’s right, I now have a page of reviews. Check out the link on the sidebar over there. No, to the left. Down a little. Back up. Yeah, there! I know, I coulda been a… more

Camp Meeting at Pleasant Grove in Waxhaw North Carolina is as impossible to explain as it is enjoyable. If you haven’t been here, you’ll never be able to grasp why thousands of people look forward to this one week more than any other. I think part of the problem arises because we’d like to pack… more
