    One of the joys of scribing is getting to know so many great kids involved with sports. We would get to know one another in high school, and then we would stay in touch. Sometimes, I will do a college or professional follow-up. Yes. It is always fun. There is an impressive list. This keeps

  • Gentle Genteel Gentiles: Dealing with Dandy Doublets0

    Ever notice that English seems to have too many words for stuff? Think of all the synonyms for angry … or fool … or great … and the 2000-plus terms for drunk, some of which we covered in our last installment of “Weird Words.” One reason for this is that English is a melting-pot of
