Pure, unfettered fun. That’s how I choose to describe what it was like to make Episode 79. Stephen Green and Ed Driscoll came on for the full hour and were their usual witty and ridiculously smart selves. As I wrote in a post this morning, if I’m ever fortunate enough to do The Delivery daily, […]

I Still Believe in Miracles: 31 Years Ago

On February 22, 1980 — 31 years ago yesterday — this happened. I still get goosebumps and choke up just a little bit every time I year Al Michaels exclaim, “Do you believe in miracles?? YES!” What I did now know was that the only reason Michaels was there was because he was the only […]

I know I’ve slipped into the habit of hyping The Delivery on Wednesday, but I can’t really help it. I love making the show and I get excited when I can roll out a new one. If I could, I’d do the show every day (and perhaps one day I’ll be in the position to […]

Amazon has just turned on its Prime Instant Video service, letting paid Prime subscribers (sorry, students) in the US (sorry, foreigners) stream any of 5,000 movies and TV shows directly to their machines free of charge — well, free […]

Remember when I said last week that Winter was on her way out? Well, she’s not going to go before she throws one last hissy fit. At last word, snowfall in the DC area could top 7 inches by the time you read this, with the potential for more in Baltimore. I’m going to be […]

Lila Rose, The Activist Who Puts Journalists to Shame

If you have not yet heard the name Lila Rose, you should read Kathryn Jean Lopez’ article about her at National Review Online.

I hit the wall last night. Actually, the wall hit me, I think. I’ve been fighting off a little cold for a few days and, Sunday, I think my body negotiated a cease-fire. The illness got to sap my energy so that I was thinking at about half-speed while my body got to keep on […]

Saturday, the Tea Parties showed up in Wisconsin to represent the heretofore silent majority in that state’s budget battle — the taxpayers who have to foot the bill for all the expensive perks the teachers’ unions want to keep.

I apologize that this post is late. I spent last night and this morning on a hard deadline for Smart Girl Nation (you are reading, yes?) and had to lay the blog off to the side. But I am done, at long last, which means that I can finally get today’s CtBT post to you. […]
