LITTLE VICTORIES

kirkusreviews.com — Instructive essays in a comedic vein. In the 1990s, copies of Richard Carlson's Don't Sweat the Small Stuff (and its many sequels) were seemingly everywhere, giving readers either the confidence to prioritize their stresses or despondence over the slender volume's not addressing their particular set of problems. While not the first book of its kind, it kicked open the door for an industry of self-help, worry-reduction advice guides.

The Silly Season for NFL Silliness

wsj.com — It has been many years since I have been punched in the face, but I believe I still have time. I mean, look at the little illustration of my mug that accompanies this column-that smirking, snarky opinion-scribbler, writing endlessly about tennis and cats and treating the fringe sport of bike racing like it's the freaking aurora borealis.

A Rough Road for Cycling’s Clean Team

wsj.com — "Listen, it really sucks," Jonathan Vaughters said. It had been a rough week for Vaughters, the high-profile boss of the Cannondale-Garmin cycling team, ever since he looked at his phone on the night of Aug. 2 and saw a flurry of messages from his veteran rider Tom Danielson.

Boston Says ‘Nope’ to the 2024 Games

wsj.com — Boston didn't want the Summer Olympics. OK, that is not totally accurate: Some Bostonians were excited for the city to host the Summer Games in 2024, just not enough of them to, you know, give the idea popular momentum. Boston never became gripped with Olympic fever, not even close.

Bike Brakes for You, but Not the Pros (Yet)

The Buzz About Motors in Cycling

wsj.com — Is it evil that I kind of want to see somebody get caught? Just to see what all the fuss is about? Just to watch the authorities saw a $10,000 bicycle open like Jaws on the dock to see what's lurking inside? I love the sport of cycling, but I can't be the only one who's curious.
