No. 934 If you read Politico.com, you’ve been getting a steady diet of articles about the Sequester. Not that this diet has been all that tasty.* The Administration is warning about plagues of locusts, asteroids and various other cataclysmic events occurring. Of course, the President must not really believe the seriousness of his own predictions [...]
We thought we had heard the last of Horace Rumpole, several times. Last time out (2005) he told us the story of the Penge Bungelow Murders, his great early case that put a very young Rumpole on the front page of the Sunday Times.

No. 716 So — I read in the Freakonomics Blog last week that I could ask questions of the authors of a book called Willpower. This sounded like a great idea, but I hadn’t read the book. And so I clicked the link and bought the book, downloading instantly on my Kindle. In my excitement, [...]
No. 703 Everybody is talking about creating jobs. The President is going to make a major speech on the subject, which will be over in time for Thursday Night Football. I’m here to tell you that we are already creating jobs at a furious pace. What does an American do when he gets extra [...]
No. 689 Have you noticed that word processing software has been trying to finish your words lately? Like in the last sentence, it wanted to complete the partial word that became “processing” to “procession”? If you look at your keyboard all the time like I do because I never learned to type [it suggested "tip" [...]
