I’m pretty sure that Doctoral theses could be, and in all likelihood will be written, about behavioral progressions among the masses during times of pandemic quarantine. First off, though, there has to be agreement on what name to give to the offending virus, being careful, of course, to avo…

During a recent spate of cynicism, I made a prediction to friends: Before this thing is over, Trumpists will be calling COVID-19 God’s will. So let’s get back to work, save the stock market and let the disease sort them out. There are more than 300 million individuals in the United States. S…

Of course the issues were different. The country was different, its role in the world was different. The means of communication were different, the methods of transportation were different. The roles of the sexes were different, racial attitudes were different. Even the diversions were diffe…

The season of rebirth and renewal is here. It even had the decency to show up a day earlier than normal this year. The Vernal Equinox took place on the 19th and every guy named Vern was given a free adult beverage of his choice in the trendiest of bars. I made that last part up, but it seems…

Where does a phrase like this week’s title come from? Globes have no corners. The one we live on has bumps and holes and pools of water that go way deeper than your galoshes and go on for thousands of miles...but it’s essentially round and has no corners. Unless, of course, the flat-earthers…
