Nothing is good enough for this princess. If you’ve ever cohabited with a cat, you know what I mean: Kitty tantrums at mealtime, no matter how luxurious the cuisine is. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t own a cat; he just lives here, and not by my choice. I can’t do anything about [...]

What’s in a name?

A lot, it seems. After all, when you name a baby, the poor kid’s stuck with it unto death or legal name change, whichever occurs first. So proceed with caution. Now let’s skip the (formerly sexist, now egalitarian) naming of hurricanes, and go straight to the latest Covid-19 variant, dub[...]
