Hornswaggler | The culture, the humor, a bit of the sports, not so much the politics, and the workplace distraction

Hornswaggle is an alternate spelling of hornswoggle, an archaic word that means to bamboozle or hoodwink. I take my pronunciation from the late Harvey Korman in "Blazing Saddles" --

"I want rustlers, cutthroats, murderers, bounty hunters, desperados, mugs, pugs, thugs, nitwits, halfwits, dimwits, vipers, snipers, conmen, Indian agents, Mexican bandits, muggers, buggerers, bushwhackers, hornswagglers, horse thieves, bull dykes, train robbers, bank robbers, ass kickers, shit kickers and Methodists!"

So little posting, so much time

Well, not really. Haven't had much time of late, but am planning a flurry of posts in the near future. And the football preview is still very much in the works.

The reason for the little time is I've taken an internship in the news department at Salon, the most visible duty of which is posting to "War Room," the bloggy news analysis and commentary part of the site. You can go there now and see a few of the posts I've written so far.

Also, the magazine put out by my spring semester workshop at Columbia is online here, and if you scroll to "Man's Other Best Friend" you can read the long piece I wrote exploring the relationship between dolphins and humans. That's all for now but more to come soon. I swear.
