End of the rainbow: man who stole NYC pot of gold caught in Ecuador

Generally, I don’t pull for criminals. The world isn’t a movie, and if people are willing to break the law, that’s not really a good thing. But sometimes, the crime itself is so brazen, foolhardy, and not violent or harmful, that you kind of just want to see the perp get away with it. This […]


Sherlock recap: Was ‘The Final Problem’ both a season and series finale?

Well, that Sherlock finale was certainly something. But was it good? Let’s discuss. Sherlock’s season 4 finale (ominously bearing the title “The Final Problem,” a nod to the Arthur Conan Doyle tale that saw Sherlock Holmes’ original literary demise) wrapped the season up tightly, if not satisfactorily.

World’s best neighbors have an LED ice hockey rink in their backyard

Neighbors are often hit or miss. There’s no getting around that. Sometimes you get awesome fun people you can be friends with. Other times you get some old guy who mows his lawn shirtless every Saturday at 7:30 AM. Shaun and Laura Carlon, of Maple Grove, Minnesota, are pretty clearly in the former group. Take […]

Hey, remember Royce White? He’s balling out in Canada now

Royce White is perhaps the most famous recent example of how professional sports is not yet equipped to put players with special mental health requirements in the best positions to succeed.
