JOHN FISH, THE OLYMPICS, AND TROY FROM ‘THE GOONIES’ — Image by Chris Faraone I wrote most of this screed at seven o'clock in the morning last Thursday at Dig headquarters, in the building we've inhabited for more than a decade on East Berkeley Street in Boston's South End.

BOSTON’S NEXT BEST SUPERINTENDENT — Reporters and residents flocked by the thousands to events with the superintendent candidates last week. Image by Michael Zaia. Repeat after us: Very few Boston media outlets care about children.

Harvard in court, a rally for Cape Wind, and fossil fuel chicanery on campus — Images by Chris Faraone It's fun to bitch and blow hot wind about the Earth's imminent doom. We lament at work. In traffic while listening to NPR. With friends over dinner and drinks. And yet most of us do no more to help curb climate change than Christian Evangelicals do to hold back the Rapture.

New England’s debut cannabis convention rocked — Images by MichaelZai I've been to nearly a dozen MassCann Freedom Rally events, had a blast at all of them, and have even spoke at a few of their annual galas. I've also been to marijuana forums in some other cities, plus I've participated in more college lectures and symposiums than I can count.

CHAPTER VII - OREGON TALE - Medium — The whole notion of loggin' is very simple if you get onto it. It comes to this: the idea is to make a tree into a log and a log into a plank. Now, when it's standin' up vertical it's a tree, and when it's laid down it's a felled tree.

YOU WON’T BELIEVE WHO’S MENTORING THE YOUTH OF BOSTON — I throw the word "neoliberal" around quite a bit. Generally speaking, I'm referring to people who consider themselves to be of the leftist variety-socially, in some ways fiscally, they may even own Birkenstocks-but who believe society's woes can be cured by the same goons who regularly screw us.

THAW! WHAT IS IT GOOD FOR? — Image by Austin Dickey "It's horrible what's happening to people in Boston." So sympathized my taxi driver late last week in sunny Los Angeles, where I wrapped up a nearly two-week stretch of hopping couches and motel rooms all over the West Coast, from Washington to SoCal.

Oregon Tale: The Final Chapter — Since the beginning of this year, I have published a weekly series on about lawless Josephine County and the crooked nature of foreclosures there ( The project began with my friend's parents being evicted by a SWAT team, and has since brought me to the Pacific Northwest on two ...

CHAPTER VI - OREGON TALE - Medium — It's been 10 months since my friend's parents, Tom Roach and Melinda Starba, were evicted from their home in Southwest Oregon by a SWAT team . According to my notes, that means it's been nine months since I learned of the apparent injustice, and took my first trip to examine the scenario up close.

FAHRENHEIT K-12: ONLY MICHAEL MOORE CAN SAVE MASS PUBLIC SCHOOLS — Image by Tak Toyoshima Two years ago at the annual Left Forum in Lower Manhattan, filmmaker Michael Moore said something that blew the camouflage beret off of my noggin. Here's a guy who's spent significant time around curmudgeonly progressives pushing micropolitical fetishes, and he said the issue he is most often asked to address in a movie is the dismantling of public schools.

I wonder how much Christopher Buckley got paid to write the TV Guide cover story, 'Why I Love House of Cards.' Must be nice. #GroceryAisle

Don't ask why I was looking, but the 'Hit Parader' site is still intact, and it's super mid-to-late 2000s retro:
