Since Michael is turning off the lights, I think it's time I said my so-longs as well. True/Slant has been a regular part of my life for almost a year.  I became familiar with the site when the fantastic journalist, Ryan Sager, asked me to site sit for him while he [...]

Well, hello, Columbus. ( Click here if you’re not a Philip Roth fan.) Some people were surprised when Columbus, Ohio, appeared on the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) list of the top twenty-two energy “Smarter Cities,” sharing the spotlight with towns better known for their deep green glow. Places [...]

Did Anne Rice just suck the blood out of Christianity?

image thumbnail - see full story for attributions
There's something kind of vampirish about Anne Rice's faith dilemma as it plays out. To wit: Anne Rice, on Facebook, Wednesday at 1:36 pm:
For those who care, and I understand if you don't: Today I quit being a Christian. I'm out. I remain committed to Christ as always but [...]

To Avoid Diabetes, Think like a Diabetic

image thumbnail - see full story for attributions
Two things run strong and hard on both sides of my family: heart disease and type 2 diabetes. As a deluge of medical research tells us, the two are closely linked.  Often diabetes precedes heart disease, but in my family—particularly on my father’s side—it goes both ways.  My dad had [...]

Back When Mickey Mouse was a Speed Freak

image thumbnail - see full story for attributions
Mind Hacks recently ran a short post on the history of Mickey Mouse using amphetamines. As strange as it sounds, the notion wasn't all that peculiar in the 1950s when anyone could buy legal speed over-the-counter, but still this little piece of cartoon history is remarkable. Vaughan gave me the thumbs [...]

I felt sufficiently pleased with myself, having spouted objective analysis of the buying process to benefit the consumer. My analysis, however, along with the entire business model around [...]

Solar power at the 'tipping point'

The Holy Grail of the solar industry — reaching grid parity — may no longer be a distant dream. Solar power may have already reached that point, at least when compared to nuclear power, according to a new study by two researchers at Duke University. It’s no secret that the [...]
