My latest piece for WNYC's "It's a Free Country" asks whether the rise of Newt Gingrich is really enough to fix the GOP's growing reputation as "The Party of Stupid."

RIP, Anne: One of the greats of SF & Fantasy, #AnneMcCaffrey, goes "between" for good. Not only was she a terrific storyteller and worldbiulder, but she was also the great equalizer in SF & fantasy fandom — only J.K. Rowling and Stephanie Meyer did as much to bring women into genre fiction. Her books were the first intersection of my tastes and those of my sister. http://orsp.in/td6F0y

My latest Tao Jones column for the Wall Street Journal Online is about turkey, sea cucumbers and why some foods just don't translate across cultures. I had a lot of fun writing it.

Sample quote:

"If prepared badly, which is not uncommon when a dish is made only once a year by people more experienced in wok-frying, turkey can be dry, stringy and tasteless — more of a fiber source than a food. My sister once literally plucked apart the long strands from a particularly gristly slice of breast and plaited them into a braid, which led to her getting a dressing-down from my mom for being rude to our aunt’s cooking. It’s still one of the most awesome things she’s ever done. (Even more awesome: My mom made her eat it.)"

All the snark in one place--my livetweet recap of last night's interminable foreign policy GOP Debate is up on WNYC's ItsAFreeCountry.org! http://orsp.in/txLpgy

Had a great time doing @TheTakeaway's Weekly Wrapup this AM on @WNYC w/@FaraiChideya @Ron_Christie. Audio up now—http://orsp.in/vcgdIh. That said, I can't believe Ron is willing to give Ann(tebellum) Coulter a pass for her seriously effed-up "our blacks are better than their blacks" comment.
