It’s a surprise to me, at any rate. I used to do this regularly and people said they appreciated it. Don’t know why I stopped and I don’t know what made me decide to bring it back, but here it is, an aggregation of my better posts from the previous month, December 2014, starting off with the end of the month and the end of the year and working backwards:
December 31, 1981.
Some bible stories are just that, stories.
A Dostoevsky novel comes to life at Barnes & Noble.
“And we all got rich happily ever after…”
Elizabeth Warren should run for President. No she shouldn't. Yes she should. No she shouldn't. Should! Shouldn't! Should! Shouldn't!
A beautiful, real-life love story spoiled by only one thing. Real life.
A friend wrote about this one, “This story doesn’t go where I expected it to go.”
Why you don’t want to be stuck in line with me at the movie theater.
“Mechanical. sterile, and with assembly-line efficiency.”
An encounter with nature’s wonders in the form of black vultures.
“Good cops, bad cops, hero cops, bully cops, corrupt cops, brutal cops, and bullies with badges.” This was supposed to be a three-part series of posts, my attempt to deal with protests following the Staten Island grand jury’s decision not to indict the cop who choked Earl Garner to death, but things escalated and I couldn’t keep up. I still don’t know how to complete it. But here are the first two posts.
What idiot white men like Joe Scarborough don't get.
There but for the Grace of God: Bill Murray plays Bill Murray as he might have been.
And here in Mannionville we started the month with some good news.
