So apparently I’m considered a typical American bicyclist. It’s really more about my hatred of cars than my love for the two-wheeled apparatus that’s useful in non-lethal traffic situations. (My definition of lethal traffic differs greatly from the definition accepted by real bicyclists, whom I admire greatly.) My incidental participation in a Tweed and Vintage […]

Posted by October 11, 2013

Well this feature is off to a heck of a start. Hopefully none of you read last week’s post where I successfully predicted two out of six games.

Posted by Dan Whisenhunt October 6, 2013

I took my camera over to Columbia Presbyterian Church on Saturday, hoping I’d snag some photos of the teency weency cute things that melt the collective heart of the internet. Instead, I saw a celebration of unconditional friendship. The dogs and their owners shared a moment of mutual gratitude, nuzzling each other on the church […]
