Americans' Continued Purchases of SUVs Really Is a Problem by Mark Harrison

Oil purchases are essentially the only form of financial support the simplistic economies of the despotic Middle Eastern countries have. It's not like the Saudis and Saddam are making a killing off of their fashion industries and brilliant management consulting firms. SUV's and light trucks are all so fuel inefficient that their mere existance on our roads guarantees our continued dependence on Arab Oil.

The U.N. Took Powell's Lunch Money

I so enjoy the pomp and circumstances of United Nations gatherings. This time, His Excellency Secretary of State Colin L. Powell was outgunned, if you will. Although his argument was compelling and I believe him, the opacity of the current Administration disallowed a successful debate.

How I Found Saint James'

How I Found Saint James'

Several years ago my ex Michelle and I were at Doolittle's with our dog Suzi. There was a flyer for an animal blessing on Saint Francis' Day. There would be two blessings, one at Stanton Park and one at Lincoln Park. Although Michelle and I were not church-going folks, we didn't want to short change our beloved pet; besides, Michelle and Suzi were both from San Francisco.

My Puppy Suzi, My Ex Michelle, and a Doggie Neurologist, Part 2

My Puppy Suzi, My Ex Michelle, and a Doggie Neurologist, Part 1

I share my gorgeous dog Suzi with her mom, Michelle. Over the last month or so, Suzi has had a head bob. I have been in denial that it was age-related. She has started to fall; her health is beginning to fail.

Are Children Allowed to be Kids Anymore?

Are Children Allowed to be Kids Anymore?

When I was a kid my parents were at work and I guess I was a latch-key kid. I took the public bus hither and thither. My mom was not too concerned. My friends and I rode our bikes or took the bus to the harbor where we would go fishing. The city was open and available to us.

The Use of SMS for Texting and US Cell Phones

The United States might be one of the most wired countries in the world, but in a post modern world, the coolest countries have gone wireless. As a result, we don't want to be part of the mobile phone left-behind.

42-Minute-Run in 24-Degree-Weather

I didn't get to the gym tonight. I went last night. Instead of resting, I felt like a lump so at around 11:30pm I put on my running togs, pulled on a watch cap, stuck my MiniDisc player into one sock, my keys in another, stuck them onto my hands, and hit the road.
