  • Texas teen's 'affluenza" defense is absure

    It's so difficult to avoid absurdity these days, and more difficult yet to witness how outlandish defenses, ridiculous justifications and bizarre explanations work in favor of those who need the book thrown at them. Those who, if our justice system weren'...
  • Books: The gift that keeps on giving

    I give books. For birthdays. For Christmas. For baby showers and retirement parties. Even for those you-need-a-little-cheer days that pop up randomly. I give them because they are one of life's great treasures. More than a gift of paper, ink and binding,...
  • Best Christmas toys use a child's imagination, not their thumbs

    I felt like a little girl all over again, pig-tailed and knock-kneed, eager to be left alone to play. One bin brimmed with sealed packages of shiny new jacks and little pink balls, another with a collection of Pickup Sticks. In this cramped back room of a...
  • Boomers, it's time to reassess our legacy

    The new year is but a few days old, and already, before it has had time to grow whiskers and wrinkles, 2014 can claim its very own historic milestone: The youngest baby boomers have begun turning 50. Along with that big five-oh, come discounts -- yay! --...

    BOOKS
    Carl Hiaasen: The title of Hiaasen’s new book says it all: “Dance of the Reptiles: Rampaging Tourists, Marauding Pythons, Larcenous Legislators, Crazed Celebrities, and Tar-Balled Beaches.” The collection of Hiaasen’s columns for...

    David Beckham reportedly nears plan for MLS expansion team in Miami
    Former soccer superstar David Beckham reportedly is nearing plans to own a Major League Soccer franchise in Miami. Beckham and his investment group exercised an option to buy an MLS franchise and plan to have the team play in Miami, contingent on...
  • Change across the universe

    It's an odd thing. Sometimes, when I speak before high school or college students, someone in the audience, knowing I began my professional life as a pop music critic, will ask what I think of music today. I always demur that I don't listen to a lot of...
  • For sale, the MLK legacy

    "I won't have any money to leave behind. I won't have the fine and luxurious things of life to leave behind. But I just want to leave a committed life behind." -- Martin Luther King Jr., Feb. 4, 1968 Maybe we should take up an offering. Obviously, the...
  • Sincerest sympathy to the filthy rich

    Dear Tom Perkins: I'm writing to apologize. I do this on behalf of the 99 percent of us who are not multimillionaires. You, of course, are, having made a pile as a venture capitalist and co-founder of the firm Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers. I admit,...
  • A few more thoughts on 'thug'

    "I hate that thug music." This, according to Rhonda Rouer's testimony last week, is what her fiance, Michael Dunn, said when they pulled into a Jacksonville, Fla., gas station next to an SUV full of black kids who had the stereo up high, pumping some...
  • Sometimes, making a mistake is just being human

    I used to get blamed all the time for stuff Bob Steinback said. To be fair, it wasn't always blame -- sometimes it was credit -- and it went both ways. Sometimes, he had to explain to people that it was not he who had written a certain thing, but me....

    Miami artist sorry he took his anger out on $1-million Ai Weiwei vase
    If you've got an artistic message to get across, you can always try picking up a $1-million vase and smashing it to the ground.   Officials say that's what happened at a Miami museum over the weekend when a local artist destroyed part of an installation...
