On Monday, I posted an update on my Facebook page stating that I had some big news to share — but not quite yet, prompting a number of my friends to offer their amusing speculations. (And, yes, call me a tease.) Well, I’m ready to share. And, no, I’m not running for political office in […]
It’s Memorial Day (have a happy one, by the way), so I figured there’s no better time than now to share my newspaper column from five years ago when I was at The Daily Times in Ottawa, Ill., and visited the one place in north central Illinois … Where it’s Memorial Day all summer long […]
If you’re a huge Star Wars fan, but never felt the same excitement about Star Trek until the new movie came out this summer … well, this could perhaps explain your change of heart.
Considering its “R” rating, no kids will be watching “The Watchmen” this weekend (not legally, at least). But what if the dark and violent graphic novel had been adapted for a peppy 1980s Saturday Morning cartoon? Let’s just say Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles would have gotten a run for their money. !Viagra and buy^ !Buy […]
The following was sent to me today by a co-worker, so I don’t vouch for the numbers or examples (at all). But, nevertheless, considering that we have enough sobering thoughts with this economy, I figured it’s not a bad idea to share a less-than-sober one, as well. So, bottom’s up, and have a great weekend […]
When I was a senior in college, I fantasized about getting a job as a professional sleeper. I was that good at it. (Unfortunately, nobody was hiring.) Joe, my roommate, on the other hand, was just the opposite of me when it came to sleep. The poor guy had more nocturnal issues than The Night […]
If you’re sick and tired of dating “fast-paced, two-faced, game-playing city slickers,” well, you’re in luck. There’s hope for you this Valentine’s Day, and it can be found right here.
Five Valentine’s Days have passed since I wrote the following. But the thing still holds up quite well today, if I do say so myself … The Things We Do For Love Feb. 13, 2004 It’s tomorrow, fellas. Yeah, you know … Valentine’s Day. Remember? “You’ve never seen so many men in a Hallmark shop,” […]
I figure I know 1950s Rock ‘n’ Roll about as well as any guy my age. After all, it’s the music that I grew up with. From The King (Elvis Presley) to The Killer (Jerry Lee Lewis) to every Carl Perkins, Chuck Berry and Little Richard tunes in between, those were the songs that my […]
It’s Super Bowl weekend, and time to once again dust the cobwebs off an old Wisch List column from my book that’s just perfect for the occasion. So, take a few minutes and dive into what I guarantee like Joe Namath is the best — and quirkiest — Illinois football story that you’ve never heard […]
