    I love him for scoring against Mexico in 2005. Otherwise, he's vanilla ice cream.

    Lamb is the guy Fetterman beat in the primary in a race where the dividing line was progressive/left Dems vs centrist Dems, and pretty much nothing else. Yawn.

    As a matter of fact, no, I’m not tired of us winning and them rake stepping.

    Not surprising at all--but I was talking about American racism going back to the colonial era. Fascism needs fertile soil to take root, and deeply-rooted cultural norms about powerful White men who are empowered to use violence to enforce their will on others is a welcoming environment for fascist ideas.

    I was at that game.

    He's still the second all-time assist leader in the league.

    Strangely enough, I also have a single paid writing credit and it was also $25. But it was 1986 money, so I could have, I don't know, bought a car or something.

    It was a review and strategy guide to the video game "Rescue on Fractalus". What a sweet game.

    You mean the second most expensive spice coming from an exquisite orchid that must be hand-pollinated and harvested? High praise indeed.

    Conor Lamb is sounding like a sore loser here...

    My dad was into computers pretty early, like late 70s. He bought a computer book written by a charlatan. (This wasn’t unusual as it’s not like publishers at the time knew enough about computers to spot bullshit.). It was full of crap. (I’m just relaying the story as told to me.)

    One of the terms in the book was “altered variable,” which wasn’t a thing. So in my dad’s published book review (I think in an airline magazine) there was a really funny line. As best I can remember it, he wrote, what is an altered variable? A neutered bisexual?

    I don’t know if it’s funny today; I think it is because he’s just making fun of the writer. He wasn’t making fun of bisexuals or trans people.

    I have not achieved that level of fame.

    I managed to have a career out of writing for eight years. Starting in journalism in 2008, moving into PR in 2011, then transitioning to advertising in 2013.
