They see me trollin’: Wolfie, Cheney and the importance of being earnest

They see me trollin’: Wolfie, Cheney and the importance of being earnest

Back when my father was a drama teacher, one of his best students was a guy named Dennis Boutsikaris. You may know Dennis by sight (if not by name), since he’s worked pretty steadily in the 40-plus years since Dad had him in class. He played Mozart on Broadway (opposite Frank Langella’s Salieri) in...

Whiteface supremacy: Jerad Miller and the Joker

You ever have one of those mornings? You wake up in a good mood. You go for a walk with your pretty wife and adorable dog. You think about taking a quick dip in the pool before work. And then you turn on the TV and see that somebody has found footage of yet...

Superdumb: Why Hornaday was right about Rogen

The first time I saw Superbad, I knew it would one day inspire a horrific multiple murder. OK, not quite. But I was disturbed greatly by its denouement. The good and upstanding kid who had refused to become a date rapist was rewarded by getting the girl; meanwhile, his coarse, obnoxious buddy, who had...

The curse of desirability: A sonata for tiny violin

I didn’t get married until I was in my 40s. I had plenty of reasons, and one of the biggest was that I’m just painfully shy. For most of my life, the simple idea of asking somebody out on a first date was enough to make me curl up in an inert ball. Why...

Out liars: Bundy and Sterling offer a peek beneath the hood

April 28, 2014
By
Memphis Grizzlies v San Antonio Spurs - Game One

So now we know: Nobody’s a racist in America anymore, except for the 10 million and four rotten apples in the barrel. The not-so-shocking confirmation that Cliven Bundy and Don Sterling are hardcore bigots has conservatives scurrying to downplay the significance of both stories. On Sunday’s Meet the Press, The National Review’s Rich Lowry...

Will It Float? Late night’s conscience after Letterman

Will It Float? Late night’s conscience after Letterman

I’ve come to really dread the phrase “common sense.” When a politician says he advocates common-sense solutions to our problems, he’s usually exhorting his constituents to succumb to knee-jerk prejudices that are often directly at odds with empirical fact. So yeah, I’m inherently suspicious of Things We All Know. Yet at the same time,...
