Hallowed

Deep Throat plaque

In a metropolitan area full of history and historical markers, two plaques in Arlington, Virginia—just across the river from Washington, DC—are easy to miss. They sit a block apart in the Rosslyn neighborhood, consisting of office buildings, high-rise apartments, and fast-food restaurants.

You simply must ask what the Blue Plate Special is. For the record, this sign didn’t last long. Either the doctor(s) moved, or a better sign was made and […]

Phony

“The best camera is the one that’s with you.” Thus spake Chase Jarvis. And nowadays, more often than not, that camera is your phone. For Jarvis, it’s an iPhone, and he made an app for called … Best Camera. I have only owned Android phones, and I don’t particularly like applying cutesy filters before I don’t […]

Careless

To the surprise of many, Chief Justice John Roberts has saved the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA). Unsurprisingly, his reasoning in doing so was cockeyed. He rejected the Commerce Clause justification in support of the federal government’s authority to enforce participation in health care coverage (the so-called “mandate”), citing instead the government’s fallback […]
