Coming Attractions

I’m getting incoming from both Radio Derb and Derb TV fans, the former wondering why broadcasts have ceased, the latter wondering where the weekly show went.

All-purpose answer:  Sloth on my part.  Last week was (a) son’s birthday, (b) trip to Hersheypark, with night away from home, and (c) the Fourth (barbecue, fireworks).  My work habits all fled and I had trouble coaxing them back, spent the weekend doodling around with home repair projects.  Shall get up to speed soonest.  Mondays always concentrate the mind.

I still haven’t decided whether Derb TV has superseded Radio Derb.  I may just do both, from the same script.  The constraint there is the workload of our busy, dedicated battallion of webmasters, who already have their hands pretty much full as NRO races to become the new Google.  Anyway, I’ll have SOMETHING up in a day or two.

And for the many readers who urged me to do a response to George Gilder’s Intelligent Design piece in the current issue of the print magazine, I already have–watch this space.

Late Campaign Stops Don’t Seem to Do Much

Growing up in New Jersey, we called nights like tonight – where there were expectations for hooliganism -- vandalism, breaking windows, and perhaps even arson, “Mischief Night.” In Detroit, they called it “Devil’s Night.” In 2020, Americans just call it “Friday.” On the menu today: wondering ...

Searching for a Sign

I’ve been waiting for almost six months to see a Biden-Harris yard sign in my neighborhood. Finally one -- just one -- appeared about two weeks ago. It is large and proud. The homeowners even equipped it with a spotlight, so that it is visible at night. I’m surprised, because liberal political yard signs ... Read More
