The Left Glove Finally Comes Off
The US presidential election is coming into the home-stretch.  Much if the fun and games have been on the Republican side, as New York real estate mogul and pitchman Donald Trump has sucked up much of the oxygen with his quixotic bid for the nomination.   O...

You. Are. A. Programmer.

Oh, (no) Canada!
The 2016 Stanley Cup Playoffs kicked off last night, which to a Toronto Maple Leafs' fan can only one thing. It's time to start watching the Blue Jays next season of mediocrity. The Leafs have not won the Cup since 1967 - the year my mother and father were ...
