Column: A new obsession, just in time

I am a man of great, but specific, enthusiasms. Let’s start there. Mack Bolan. Any idea who that is? You might have, but I didn’t until a few weeks ago and now he’s almost all I think about. I’ll explain, shall I? As we’ve discussed to some extent before, I love pulp fiction. We just […]

To date, the most significant sign of the world’s outrage is a hashtag on Twitter. In 1904, President Theodore Roosevelt was confronted with […]
