1. Quotation Anthologist Still Going Strong
- Thursday, March 24, 2016
In October 2008 I wrote a couple of columns that, taken together, set forth a quotation and then endeavored to correctly identify the source thereof. That quotation – “I don’t cry over spilt milk, but a fallen scoop of ice cream is enough to ruin my whole day,” attributed to one Terri Guillemets – may be found throughout cyberspace to this day.
- Thursday, December 24, 2015
Writing in the November issue of The American Lawyer, a quartet of byline authors put forth: “Among big-firm lawyers, the Dewey & LeBoeuf trial [which, after four months of testimony and 21-days of jury deliberation, ended in a mistrial] has produced reactions ranging from introspection to schadenfreude.” Of German descent, the latter word – combining schaden and freude – is, literally, harmjoy. And, apparently, this 13-letter word has an 11-letter synonym.
3. 22 Sports Blessings Worth Giving Thanks For
- Thursday, November 26, 2015
Counting the blessings and giving sporting thanks for:
• John Calipari not hiring Keelon Lawson.
• Women who don’t like football but still let their men watch football on Thanksgiving. Y’all get it.
4. ‘Franklin the Plagiarist’ Revisited
- Thursday, July 30, 2015
It’s been said that the Web is a Mecca for writers who are not good to start with and don’t know how to rewrite, revise and edit.
An apt quote on this concept may be found in the current I Swear Cross-plug – uh, Crossword. It is the ultimate memory enhancer, though, the net.
5. Curtain Drawn on Bravermans’ Drama
- Thursday, February 26, 2015
If there’s one adjective that does not fit “Parenthood,” NBC’s six-season series that shuttered its doors in January, it’s symmetrical. Great show! I hate to see it go. But it was out of balance. Always! And delightfully so!
6. Returns, Happy and Other
- Thursday, January 01, 2015
A repeating scene in “Breaking Bad,” which I’ve now watched twice, involves the protagonist’s birthday. Skyler White (Anna Gunn) breaks up bacon strips on the plate of her husband Walter (Bryan Cranston), arranging them into the digits that indicate his age.
7. Bowl-Eligible Tigers Look for More This Season
- Friday, November 14, 2014
It was just another score on the bottom-of-the-TV-screen scrawl: Memphis 16, Temple 13.
For most of the country, that’s all it was. If it came with any history, it was only the immediate history of Jake Elliott kicking the game-winning field goal. Or of the Tigers getting their sixth win, which knowledgeable college football fans understand is the magic number: six wins equals a bowl game.
8. Checking Out the Meanings Behind ‘Glamazon’
- Thursday, July 31, 2014
I was checking something out online the other day when I came across the word glamazon.
Glamazon is not in many dictionaries, though it is in Wordnik. Wordnik’s cofounder, Erin McKean, gave a great TED Talk in 2007, “The Joy of Lexicography.” You can watch it on YouTube. I recommend it wholeheartedly.
9. Roaming Other Rivieras
- Thursday, July 11, 2013
MARSEILLE, France – I never expected those other Rivieras to look anything like those here in the States. (See last week’s column or risk being lost while reading this one. Hint: I’m on vacation.)
10. Commencement Address – Part 2
- Thursday, May 30, 2013
(Continuing my apologies to Schmick, Wheelan, Rowling, Lamott, Wallace, Sedaris, and others, I offer Part 2 of the graduation speech I’ve never given. Part 1 ended On Election Day, 1996. Executing a plan to visit 25 polling places, I got caught in traffic, went down a road I’d no intention of traveling, and wound up at a polling place I’d not intended of visiting. It was 5:30 p.m., and the volunteers at this place expected only a dozen or so voters in the next two hours.)
11. MULYP Awards Honor ‘Agents of Change’
- Friday, December 02, 2011
Memphis Urban League Young Professionals celebrates its second annual Agents of Change Awards Saturday, Dec. 3, honoring individuals and organizations that have made contributions to the community.
12. Archived Article: Standout
- Friday, June 14, 2002
Virtuoso Virtuoso By MARY DANDO The Daily News When Joy Brown Wiener was 6, her mother gave her a violin so she could join her sisters in an open string recital. Turns out, she possessed perfect pitch. Nine months later, under the guidance of her te...
