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

We Who Aren’t About to Die…

Written by John Strausbaugh on . Posted in Breaking News, Posts

In One-Dimensional Man, Herbert Marcuse offered a handy metaphor for the ritual use of military power in the modern world. This was 1964, full-on Cold War, both the U.S. and Soviet Union bristling with nuclear missiles and racing each other to build more, and everyone living under the perceived threat that a nuclear holocaust could break out tomorrow. If you [&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.

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

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

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
