No such thing as fake news

According to our Tweeter-in-Chief, there is a lot of fake news running around these days. I think he is talking about the national television networks and the navel-gazers at the New York Times and the Washington Post. I don't think he is talking about me but who can be sure what is going on inside this guy's cranium.

Raekwon is blessed. Jeff's a jerk

Raekwon is rich. Jeff's a jerk. I wrote the first three words atop Wednesday's front page to tease a short story on 1B on Raekwon McMillan signing his NFL contract.

In this case, Ann Coulter is right

Among my many strong principles is this one: Disagree with whatever Ann Coulter says. Actually, Ann is not the only one; she's really just a fill-in-the-blank name on my page reserved for ridiculously cruel commentators who build their followings with their limitless shock stock of tacky offensiveness. They manage to be both uninhibited and calculating at the same time. Every poisonous word they utter, every inflammatory tweet they type, every dangerous stunt they concoct is aimed at getting publicity. That is their guiding unprincipled principle.
