Almost needless to say, only for big Van the Man fans. From McSweeney's.
North Carolina's entry is, of course, BBQ.
In my opinion this is a much better explanation than that fans have been turned off the NFL by Colin Kaepernick.
To be on your own.
With no direction home.
Like a rolling stone.
Ladies and gentlemen, the winner of the 2016 Nobel Prize for Literature is Bob Dylan.
I rewatched The Usual Suspects recently and thought, as many people do, that it's a terrifically entertaining film. But on the second viewing I noticed a couple of interesting points relating to the surprise ending. (Spoilers ahead.)
So I looked, briefly, to see if other people made these observations. I saw claims that there are big plot holes (for examples, here and here), the claim that Keyser Soze wasn't who's he's supposedly revealed to be (for examples, here and here), and even the claim that Keyser Soze didn't really exist.
But I didn't see anybody who mentioned my two points. (The analysis of the movie is quite voluminous and I didn't spend a whole lot of time looking.) So on the off-chance that they're original, I'm putting them here.
Washington Post columnist Kathleen Parker makes a case for using commas correctly.
It matters because good grammar conveys a great deal about a person.
Quality is in the details — and attention to commas, semicolons, dangling participles, gerunds and the proper placement of quotation marks says to the reader that this person is careful, considerate (because bad grammar is painful to the discerning eye), and (there’s that Oxford comma) competent.
Information that's obviously important.
Not helpful to me, but possibly of interest to female Door readers and males who are involved with, or related to, females.
With all the hubbub over The Donald in the last few days I had missed this.
On Sunday night, as Americans were transfixed by the spectacle of the second presidential debate, events occurred off the coast of Yemen that remind us of the kind of challenges with which a president must contend. Two ballistic missiles were fired at a U.S. destroyer in international waters from the part of Yemen controlled by the Houthis, an Iranian-back militia. The missiles did not hit the USS Mason, although it’s unclear if they had some internal defect or whether the ship defended itself with its suite of missile-defense systems.
And I missed this: "As Obama prepares to ambush Israel what will American Jews do?"
Finally, also this: "The scary truth about what Putin really wants (and Obama’s willful ignorance)".
