    Why celebrate 'The Grapes of Wrath'? It's bad fiction and bad history.
    This month marks the 75th anniversary of the publication of "The Grapes of Wrath." Which means it's time to trample out the vintage of the Grapes of Mush. John Steinbeck's 1939 novel about migrant Central Valley fruit pickers, peopled with robustly two-...

  • Investing: Profit from the new oil boom

    Decades of importing crude from the vast Arabian deserts left many people believing that America's dependence on foreign oil was as inevitable as the tide. But sweeping changes in the way oil and gas are extracted are challenging that assumption. As...

    Review: 'Hollywood Hillbillies' -- how did it take so long?
    It's difficult to believe it has taken this long for a show like Reelz's "Hollywood Hillbillies" to enter the reality TV landscape. An unfiltered family from Georgia making their way through Tinseltown seems a no-brainer, a real-ish life version of "The...

  • The duck and jackass dynasty

    I got the gist of the "Duck Dynasty" thing after my first and only viewing: bunch of rural jackasses who somehow struck it rich get brought into our living rooms to be laughed at by the rest of us aristocrats.  Well, all right. When the archetype...
  • Outrage over 'reality' star's comment smacks of artificiality

    So rednecks need to be politically correct now? Wait, before the National Association of Rednecked Persons attacks me, let me be clear that I don't mean "redneck" as an insult. Indeed, Redneck Pride has been on the rise ever since Jeff Foxworthy got rich...
