The Egg and I

Not only does the story testify to the power of humor to sustain a real-life parable celebrating the ingenuity of a man hoping to escape the mundane, but it is also proof that the scenic, circuitous route through life may be preferable to the more direct.

The Monster

I stopped believing in monsters on Thanksgiving Day in 1976, when my stepfather came downstairs for dinner wearing black dress pants, a white collared shirt, a pair of freshly polished black leather shoes and only one sock.

Nude in Black and White

I thought about Susan Dey and blisters and being a hippie last Thursday when I found myself driving around outside the Air and Space Museum looking for a place to park.

Abbie Hoffman Was Here

Hoffman famously said, “You measure democracy by the freedom it gives its dissidents, not the freedom it gives its assimilated conformists.” This was in 1989, when he was just 52, the same year that he killed himself, making everyone wonder if freedom wasn’t really just another word for nothing left to lose.

Mr. Fish on Saving the World

Truthdig editors interviewed esteemed editorial cartoonist Dwayne “Mr. Fish” Booth, whose debut collection, “Go Fish: How to Win Contempt and Influence People,” is out from Akashic Books.

1987
