I don’t quite know how Episode 74 turned in to the girliest episode of The Delivery ever, but it did. I’m not complaining, mind you. A man could do much worse than spend an hour with such lovely and smart women as Teri and Kimberly and we hit on some fun and interesting things. I’m […]

I thought it was bad when the overnight low Saturday was 18 degrees, but that was balmy compared to the 9 degree low of Sunday night. There are still a couple months left of winter, including the treacherous month of February (T.S. Eliot was wrong), and I’m more than ready to spring to arrive. It’s […]

I suppose we’re overdue for another pronouncement from an “expert” about how the Internet will kill us all. The way in which people frantically communicate online via Twitter, Facebook and instant messaging can be seen as a form of modern madness, according to a leading American sociologist. “A behaviour that has become typical may still […]

At some point we will stop thinking of Noam Chomsky as a leading intellectual and start thinking of him as a doddering old fool who has soaked so long in progressive politics that his once-formidable mind has gone soft as a down pillow. “There’s other factors like the anger, and the fear and hostility in […]

Those of you who listen to The Delivery every week will know that I made a complete hash of my football picks last week and I’m not particularly proud that the one I got (Chicago over Seattle) was pretty much the easiest of the bunch. So, I’m a bit hesitant to handicap today’s games but, […]

What? It’s every bit as accurate a headline as this bit of drivel from the National Enquirer. I didn’t link to the original piece because I don’t think rumor mongers who pose as journalists deserve traffic. Ace, however, deserves millions of hits for his inspired and dead-on takedown of the NatEnq. Make no mistake here, […]

Am I the only one for whom the week has seemingly crept by? I’ve spent the past couple days wondering if I slipped into some alternate time-stream wherein one day for me passed like five days for the rest of the world. But all is well today. It is Friday; the weekend beckons with cake, […]
