Civilization versus Man

This article that Matt referenced in the comments, Matt’s buddy’s article

spurred me to think a bit. Like the author in the article I have always been good at civilization. I can navigate modern cities well; I’m a wizz at public transportation, urban cycling, hailing taxis. I know which restaurants and fast food options […]

Review: Red Eye with Tom Shillue

Greg Gutfeld announced he was leaving Red Eye and the show began rotating different men and women in the host spot. On Greg’s last show, when this plan was announced, I turned to my wife (the lovely, Mrs. Firefly) and said, “Please don’t let Tom Shillue be the new host.”

Review: The Greg Gutfeld Show

With his announcement he was leaving “Red Eye” and “Red Eye’s” ensuing hiatus I anxiously awaited the premiere of Greg Gutfeld’s new show, the eponymous, “Greg Gutfeld Show.” With so many weeks to prepare I expected great things and I was not disappointed.

Barbarians at the Gates

These people are beyond parody.

Melinda Gates, Chelsea Clinton and Hillary Clinton are lecturing women on how to be successful?! One married one of the richest men in the world, another married a President and the third is the daughter of a President.

In all sincerity, the fact that this wasn’t laughed at by […]
