1. Mining Crap -


Since I allowed Apple to plant iOS 9 on my phone, on my iPad and in my psyche, my email is a crap shoot, iTunes is no longer playing my song, Siri won’t speak to me, Firefox won’t let me on my own home page and U-verse goes south daily.

2. Two Tasty Stories on the Side -

5. A Steeple in Hell -

THE CHURCH OF GROUND ZERO. Headed to my desk, I passed a photograph on the wall. I pass it several times every day, but when I typed 9/11 at the top of the page, the date this column would run in The Daily News, I realized what the column would be about:

6. Always Coming Home -

MEMPHIS FROM THE BEACH. When I first shared these observations a few years ago, I was doing pretty much what I’m doing right now – keeping the sand out of my beer and helping my dogs stare at the ocean. Like that activity, I think the observations are worth repeating.

7. Hey, I’m Back Here -

10. Listen for Home -

WHEN YOU’RE HOME, YOU CAN HEAR IT. I was recently reminded of a story I heard from an actor friend years ago when he was in town for a commercial I was making. His name was Robert Lansing – if you’re old enough, you’ll remember him from TV’s “12 O’Clock High.”

11. A Measure Of Truth -

A MEASURE OF JOURNALISM. As I wondered what to write about while on vacation, I was bailed out by New York Times public editor Margaret Sullivan and my friend Jay Martin, who sent me her article. Ms. Sullivan upon ending her teaching stint at the Columbia Graduate School of Journalism left these parting words for her students:

12. Stock-Buyback Programs Hit Record Pace -

If this was a poker game, it could be said that American companies are doubling down – repurchasing their own stock at a record pace instead of betting on new, outside investments.

NEW YORK (AP) – Imagine a fitting room with a "smart" mirror that suggests jeans to go with the red shirt you brought in. It snaps a video so you can compare the image side-by-side with other colorful shirts you try on. It might even show you how the shirt will fit without you having to undress.

14. Because I Say So -

“Ipsy dipsy!” shouts Ann Marie, Marlo Thomas’ character in “That Girl.” Trying to impress a judge in court, she mispronounces “ipse dixit.” Meaning “he, himself, said it,” this Latin phrase connotes a dogmatic, unsupported assertion.

18. Beacons Pop Up in Stores Ahead of Holidays -

NEW YORK (AP) – From American Eagle to Apple Stores, beacons are popping up everywhere. Are they a shopper's best friend or another pesky Big Brother monitoring our every move?

The square or rectangular devices, smaller than a smartphone, can hang on a wall or be placed on a machine and communicate with your phone via Bluetooth signals. Accessed through apps you download to your smartphone, beacon technology can do everything from guide you to the correct airport terminal to turn on your coffee maker as you sleepily enter the kitchen. In retail, beacons aim to entice you to spend money. As you enter a store, your smartphone might light up with a sale alert. Stand in the dress section for a while and a coupon may pop up for something on a nearby hanger.

21. Different Windows, Same Views -

THIS MORNING. THIS TOWN. This morning, I woke up in a challenged neighborhood. You know the challenges well.

The population is declining and aging – talking about the good old days, bemoaning the present, fearful of the future. The city is trying to reinvent itself – built on a booming business now faded and all but gone. Young people aren’t returning. One major employer dominates and other jobs are mostly in government or in lower-paying positions in service or tourism. People outside the city point to it as the source of the area’s problems.

22. Tourette Help -

In sports talk radio, questions are a good thing. They don’t have to bring solutions, after all, just open the gates to discussion and debate.

30. I’ll Be Back -

MEMPHIS FROM THE BEACH. I’m on vacation, but I’ll be home soon, and here are some thoughts about that I first shared a couple of years ago.

Right now, I’m probably on the beach, keeping the sand out of my beer and helping my dogs stare at the ocean. It’s a big ocean – big enough to help you forget whatever you were so worried about a couple of days ago. Staring at it properly is a big job – big enough that making sure you don’t miss the next dolphin breaking the surface or the next crab making a break for it is more important than whatever you were doing last week. That’s pretty much the way the dogs look at it, too. We don’t miss a thing.

31. SEC Network Poised to Take Over -

Wading in … and wondering what an eventual deal between the SEC Network and DirecTV will mean for me. Will my bill go up 10 percent? Fifteen percent? Twenty percent?

Will I have to drink only domestics in brown bottles? Give up the ESPN of coffee (Star----)?

56. John or Bill -

A PROPHET IS NOT WITHOUT HONOR, SAVE AROUND HERE. If William Faulkner looked out the window on this cloudy day he would see the still and always green magnolia leaves still and always sad still and always there still and always reminding remanding back still and always back in the sunless indolent superheated moment between a dark brooding now the even darker starker truth of then and the oppressive promise hanging in the coming storm of repeating the moment still and always the same.
