Celebrate Father’s Day While You Still Can

Written by Lionel Tiger on . Posted in Breaking News, Posts

There is of course hardly any more dramatic sex difference in human nature than between the minute or two it might take a man who’s a fast learner to become a father and the nine-months-plus-often-20-years that can be the woman’s outcome. This is such a startling distinction that virtually every social system has had to figure out a way to [&hellip

Snapshots of Barcelona’s Barrio Chino

Written by Christian Viveros-Faune on . Posted in Breaking News, Posts

Barcelona! The word has long had the power to make my breath go shallow. The pedestrian pulse of its tight, teeming streets; the unexpected sweep of nouveau facades lifting off like birds’ wings; the myriad youthful faces, embarrassingly pretty in their Old World sophistication; the dry African winds pulling into this tidy, voluptuous corner of the Mediterranean; the elegant [&hellip

Spinning Affirmative Action at the New York Times

Written by Andrey Slivka on . Posted in Breaking News, Posts

The New York Times‘ consensus-manufacturing machine is gearing up for the 2000 presidential race, and with mixed results. First there was Kevin Sack’s long May 8 story about George W. Bush’s business dealings—an inconclusive piece that served only to highlight the extent to which Bush possesses the same faults that other unimaginative sons of mind boggling privilege do. More to the [&hellip

The Duke Still Rules; Crime As a Career Track

Written by Taki on . Posted in Breaking News, Posts

LEMAÎTRE Duke of All  I’ve got some very bad news for media liberals: Even though it received little media attention, a recent Reuters/Zogby poll shows the Duke to be America’s favorite actor of the century. Yes, dear readers, John Wayne, always riding tall into the sunset, is more popular than those grimacing, foul-mouthed twitching midgets who pass as film stars [&hellip

Hillary Clinton Loves New York

Written by Russ Smith on . Posted in Breaking News, Posts

Okay, I give in: Hillary Clinton‘s astoundingly selfish New York Senate run is Topic A this week. Since many readers keep track of my political wagers—I’ve been on a losing streak since ’94—let me assure them that I’ve already mailed a check for $100 to Chris Caldwell at The Weekly Standard, a deserved comeuppance for predicting just weeks ago that [&hellip

The Anti-Heros Sue Over American Hero X

Written by J.R. Taylor on . Posted in Posts

Mark Noah has been singing with the Anti-Heros for 10 years, since back when he kept a low profile as “The Unabomber.” Guitarist Mark Magee and bassist Mike Jones have been a little less shy while defining the band’s unrelenting style. The occasional nightclub riot has helped sift through the usual succession of drummers. Throughout, these three great men have [&hellip

Dirty Sanchez Smokes Much Ganja, Drinks Many Red Stripes

Written by Dirty Sanchez on . Posted in Posts

Supertanned Sanchez types this to you mere hours after landing at JFK, home from a jaunt to Jamaica! Weakhearted Sanchez had to sit and calm himself down from a false-alarm encounter with U.S. Customs before attending to his column. For before Sanchez and his Gang of Burnt Whiteys could exit to the baggage claim, they and the rest of the [&hellip

Limbo

Written by Godfrey Cheshire on . Posted in Arts & Film, Posts

Limbo directed by John Sayles “Well, he’ll never be a filmmaker…” were the first words out of the mouth of a friend I asked about John Sayles’ Limbo before I saw it myself. But they were said wryly, even a bit fondly, and they prefaced a generally favorable opinion of the movie, an opinion I ended up sharing. As for [&hellip
