It is a time of fear in the face of freedom, a time of an emptying country and swelling cities, a time for the widening of previous roads and the opening of new paths, yet a time when these paths are mined by knowing algorithms of the all-seeing eye.

Some people are celebrating the increasing popularity of soccer in the United States. My experience with soccer this weekend, however, has caused me to question this trend.
My daughter asked to join a soccer league this year, because she wanted to be with her friends. There are plenty of other ways for her to be […]
A plow and an aesthetic sensibility are not mutually exclusive.
The sign does not raise a merely hypothetical concern.
Thank goodness that expectations have been made clear. Fortunately, parking on pickup trucks seems to be okay. Parking on mushroom motorcycles would also be acceptable.
We spend a lot of time here at Irregular Times sharing what we’ve learned — but we have a lot to learn, too. So tonight I’m turning the tables:
