Now I’ve heard it all. This is just beyond ridiculous. The Toronto Public Library was asked to pull copies of “Hop on Pop” by Dr. Seuss because it “encouraged children to use violence against their fathers.” I would like to think that someone made this complaint as a joke, but knowing what I do about […]
How do you say “I want to go to there” in elephant? I love animals and I love to travel, so maybe I need to look into some of these. Working with pandas? Sign me up! A Golden Retriever festival? As long as I don’t have to man the pooper scooper, I’d love to be […]

Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band will be at PNC Arena in Raleigh on Thursday 4/24, so I thought it would be appropriate to to feature a Springsteen tune as a last classic. And this isn’t your average tune from Bruce, this is almost 10 minutes of poetry and musical introspection. In fact, a […]
I think I’ve mentioned before that I am a fan of the Loch Ness monster. I desperately want to believe that Nessie exists. I am fascinated by the legend of this sea monster or prehistoric creature or whatever you want to call her. Not long ago, a satellite high in the atmosphere, accessed using Apple’s […]
