    The Frisco Kids

    Not going to lie: The only reason I am linking this story -- about the first synagogue in Frisco -- is because I wanted to run this picture. Because when you're a 10-year-old Jewish kid in the summer of 1979, there's nothing better than a...

    Wiki, Wiki, Wiki

    Eighteen years ago, I was the managing editor of The Daily Texan, and Mike Godwin was the editor of the University of Texas student daily. We did not get along well -- something having to do with me trying to lead a mutiny, and, oh, wasn't college fu...

    Recalling the Recall

    The dough arrived a few weeks after RC2 sent a gratis, sorry-'bout-that Diesel train. But the company does promise to send replacement toys "in the next few weeks," along with "the free item we promised." At this point, I think he'd prefer a Han Solo...
