You Want History?


I was reading this article about the new Texas history curriculum and it made me think of the bigger overall question of what should we teach about American history? It seems like there's a big debate over whether American history...

W on Nat Geo


I was watching the George W. Bush interview on Nat Geo tonight and was struck by a few things: W. looked so much younger then. I mean, way more than 10 years younger. He looked like a baby. Now he's...

A new theory of time travel


I was at Madison's Union Terrace yesterday when I spied a woman that looked as if she was dropped onto her Union sunburst chair directly from 1985. She had that 80s hairstyle where you curl the front of your hair,...

Measuring the pulse of Wisconsin


You might think this post is about Wisconsin's recall elections. But nah, I thought this would be an easy, but unscientific way to gauge how much of our audience is in Wisconsin. Are you ready for some football?Heck, yeah!How 'bout...

The plushdamentals of sports fandom


When I was a kid, we christened the neighborhood backyard baseball diamond "Lezcano Field" after the Milwaukee Brewers' right fielder Sixto Lezcano. When Lezcano was traded, I remember not quite getting it. How were we supposed to now feel about...

Best songs of 2011 (so far)


Even though I don't get to listen to The Current nearly as much anymmore, I'm still going to try to tally up some of the best songs you may or may not have heard this year. If 2010 was the...

Alternative State Ad Slogans


With summer finally here, I've been seeing a lot of state-specific tourism ads. The taglines of these ads just kill me. I saw one for Illinois the other day that said "Mile after Magnificent Mile". Whatever, Illinois. Colorado's ads say...

Is it morally defensible to destroy an entire species?


I was at a party last night and as the sun set, the backyard turned into a kill zone. The mosquitoes were killing me. Like everyone else there, I was quickly driven inside. Even there, the mosquitoes quickly regrouped, hovering...

Does the punishment fit the crime?


Reading this article about the soft punishments in some fatal car crashes and today's news about the Rutgers gay suicide case make me wonder whether we should punish the action or the result? I completely understand the outrage over someone...

2011 Preakness Pick


Last year I wrote about the "fallacy of freshness in evaluating the Preakness. Basically, the vast majority of Preakness winners ran in the Kentucky Derby. If they didn't run in the Derby, they otherwise marked themselves as special with victories...

The Generations of Harry Potter


I got really annoyed reading this article about James Tate and his connection to Harry Potter. I thought it was a lazy attempt to get pageviews by simply mentioning "Harry Potter" that didn't actually even talk about the many real...

It's that time again! I'm ready to add another 25 summer songs to the list. Check out our past lists of top summer songs and then see what's new to the list this year. One of the problems with summer...

2011 Kentucky Derby - Five Things I Learned


(see all of our 2011 Kentucky Derby articles) 1. I think my questions to help narrow the field are right on. Once again, a horse with a graded stakes win and two-year old performance wins. Also, I correctly predicted the...

2011 Kentucky Derby Pick


(see all of our 2011 Kentucky Derby articles) Every year, I try to use a series of questions in order to narrow the field and pick my Kentucky Derby winner. While I might not get the winner right, I hope...
