Notes of a Bedford boy

August 19, 2011 Last week I wrote about my unsuccessful and not-brief-enough career as a Boy Scout camping in the Adirondack wilds. more »»

A not-so-happy camper

August 12, 2011 As heretical as it may sound, coming from an Adirondack native, I hate camping. I’d like to say this is a recent development, but it’s not. more »»

Going to the dogs

August 5, 2011 Last November, for reasons known only to The Great Spirit (if even it knows) I decided to get another dog. My decision may have been a bit on the impulsive side but my selection process was not. more »»

A biting commentary

July 29, 2011 In India, there’s a religion called Jainism. Its essential tenet is reverence for all life, and to that end, they’re pacifists and vegetarian. more »»

The rundown on running down

July 22, 2011 No matter how you cut it, aging is a very weird trip. Think about it this way: If you want to become a credible scholar and get a Ph.D., it’ll take you maybe 25 years, counting some time off. more »»

Bronco’s best ride

July 15, 2011 When I was in the Navy, I kept hearing an urban legend about a guy who hated the service so much, he refused to leave his bunk until he was discharged. more »»

The breaks of the game

July 8, 2011 How do we know what’s going on in the world? How do we know the true shape of our economy, or the situation in Afghanistan, or what politicians believe versus what they say? The answer’s simple: We... more »»

Tykes, trikes and bikes

July 1, 2011 There comes a time in every male child’s life when The Great Cosmic Truth of Post-Toddlerhood dawns on him: He is no longer a baby. Now he is a boy, spelled B-O-Y. more »»

Having second thoughts

June 24, 2011 Something that amazes me: After people master a skill, almost immediately they forget how hard it’d been. For example, tying your shoelaces. more »»

Takes on mistakes

June 17, 2011 Fairly often, someone’ll tell me they’ve got a bunch of great ideas I should write about. And almost inevitably, I never write about any of them. more »»

Alas, poor Jorik

June 10, 2011 In the navy I was a Morse code intercept operator, in what was designated The Naval Security Group. The “security” referred to two things. more »»

Plane crazy

June 8, 2011 It’s a simple fact of life that the older you get, the less able you are to keep track of the passage of time. more »»

Plane crazy

June 3, 2011 It’s a simple fact of life that the older you get, the less able you are to keep track of the passage of time. more »»

Brother Hal

May 27, 2011 It was inevitable I’d meet Hal Wilson. For one thing, his dorm room was next to mine. more »»

When justice had 20-20 vision

May 20, 2011 Let’s face it: Lots of people don’t like or trust cops. It’s almost a primal thing. more »»

Dash with a splash of class

May 13, 2011 At my age, staying in shape is a full-time job. But getting back in shape after a long layoff, especially by running, is less a job than an auto da fe. more »»

Making a splash with math

May 6, 2011 People use the label “spiritual” so loosely, I’ve no idea what it means. Believers of old-time religion consider themselves spiritual, as do new-age believers. more »»

Room-i-nations

April 29, 2011 In my youth, Petrova School was a K through 12. I went to kindergarten at the Broadway school (now a skanky lot next to the E&M Market), so I spent a mere 12 years at Petrova. more »»

Uncapped

April 22, 2011 Tuesday morning I woke up feeling something I hadn’t since childhood — rested, refreshed and renewed. more »»

Undercover runner

April 15, 2011 I started running 42 years ago this week, and I did it for only one reason — to survive boot camp, which was only two weeks away. more »»
