Tennis supposedly originated from a 12th century French game called Paume, meaning palm; it was a court game where the ball was hit by the hand.

We hugged and had kisses planted on either cheek. Again I found myself wondering how we all got to be here at that moment.

Another 40% get to split 40 cents, while the top 10% distribute the remaining 35 cents amongst themselves. That was in 2010, and it has only gotten worse since then.

This was a stupid mistake. Once I crossed the halfway mark, reactions started to be less positive. One or two people told me outright it was going to be an issue. Abraham Lincoln explained it well in reflecting on his approach, “I do the best I know how, the very best I can; and I mean to keep on doing it to the end. If the end brings me out all right, what is said against me will not amount to anything. If the end brings me out all wrong, ten angels swearing I was right would make no difference.” Ringing true to me meansRead More →

I remember how skinny he looked as he won the Masters that year with his Caddie “Fluff.” You can’t forget the pairing of the aged, aptly named caddie with the youngest Tour Star. The slim TW put together a string of gut wrenchingly narrow wins. An industry was made.

It means more to them than anything they have ever done in their lives. And I felt like the Warriors were so good that they just showed up and won it. If voting did anything we’d not be provided the distraction to begin with. Oh the people have all the power, but they’re too stupid to know it, or figure out how they areRead More →

In a recent column I suggested that NPR’s election coverage would benefit from occasionally stepping back from the day in, day out, “horse race” of the campaign trail, with its focus on who is up or down in the polls and in fundraising, and the latest gaffe or candidate spat. Many listeners in their letters to me say they want much more of a focus on where candidates stand on the issues, and on fact checking. Trade policy and the link to jobs. After Rifle Range Road, we had to deal with the Bukit Timah Nature Reserve and some mountain bikes plying the Belukar Track.Read More →
