Make No Mistake; This Is A Dynasty

By Jason Kettinger | Feb 05, 2012 at 9:35 PM

Bill Belichick will coach in his fifth Super Bowl, the coach and quarterback Tom Brady linked like Hall & Oates, Laurel & Hardy, like peanut butter and jelly. They both know the forty-second edition is a black mark upon what is a nearly unimpeachable legacy. Montana. Bradshaw. Brady.

The View from Mudsock Heights: Even Small Newspapers Can Do Great Reporting and Take Bold Stands

By Dennis E. Powell | Jan 09, 2012 at 4:58 PM

A retrospective section published a few weeks ago in the local weekly I write for reminded me of just how effective a small-town, non-daily newspaper can be. And it raised the possibility of my telling a story that ought to be heard far and wide. But you won’t find it without looking. It has to do with an heroic editor who uncovered an important story of the “Emperor’s New Clothes” variety and published it — even though it ultimately cost her her newspaper.

The View from Mudsock Heights: It’s Time to Stop the Bigoted Attacks on Left-Handed People

By Dennis E. Powell | Dec 30, 2011 at 5:02 PM

The headline was sad but not surprising: “The Health Risks of Being Left-Handed: Lefties Face Chance Of ADHD, Other Disorders; Brain Wiring Holds Clues.” The article, published in the prestigious Wall Street Journal, cites a “research” which claims that left-handed people — called “lefties” by epithet-flinging bigots in the right-handed majority — aren’t quite as good as right-handed people.

The View from Mudsock Heights: Cats Give Us Brain Worms that Control Our Minds. All Hail Our New Feline Overlords!

By Dennis E. Powell | Dec 20, 2011 at 10:21 PM

The View from Mudsock Heights: Dr. Chafetz and Marion -- A Love Story

By Dennis E. Powell | Dec 05, 2011 at 6:39 AM

The news was unexpected, sad, but not especially shocking: My friend and former colleague Morris Chafetz had died. He was sufficiently famous that there were long obituaries in both The New York Times and The Washington Post. Though I suppose the circumstance of his death figured into it, too.

Who are all those old people? I received a URL in the email. Terrified but unable to resist, I clicked on it. I may never recover.

Reliving Post-Season 2011 Gives Glimpse of 2012

By Jason Kettinger | Nov 11, 2011 at 3:16 AM

I admit it, I gave up. Tons of times. This Cardinals team earned my respect, my scorn, and my hope all in a vicious cycle for the last six or so months. They blew a 6-2 9th inning lead against the Mets with about a week to go before the post-season. They blew the most games they'd led in the final inning of any team in baseball. They are maddening to watch. I have almost nothing left as a fan. I just need to be honest here.

Why We Are Open for Business

By Ed Hurst | Nov 01, 2011 at 5:36 AM

Our site name was once a clever way of telling you we were promoting Open Source technology for use in business or the home office — “Open (Source) for Business.” Much has changed over the last ten years, but we remain here for the same reason: we are passionate about the topics that appear on these virtual pages.

The View from Mudsock Heights: There’s Always Time for a Little Woodland Vacation

By Dennis E. Powell | Aug 29, 2011 at 7:33 PM

The bug bites, I think, were worth it. One of the advantages of living in the country is the absence of sensory overload, which allows us to take in the more subtle phenomena that we would otherwise miss.
