My favorite month of the year - Billy Corriher

Ah, spring? a time of natural regeneration, a time to shrug off that bulky overcoat and bask in the warm weather, and for people like me, time to gather around the television for that annual ritual – March Madness.

Is pop culture getting smarter? - April Avison

Since it became wildly popular a few years ago, reality television has annoyed me. I wondered why people would waste their time watching such crap. Who cares if a couple can survive living on an island and being tempted by sexy singles? Why should it matter to me which bachelorette gets the rose from a man she's known for three weeks?

Game of hockey is pure action

Most sporting events tend to bore me unless I'm on assignment with my camera. I find it's more of a challenge just sitting through a game as a spectator, waiting for the right time to crawl over people in my aisle just to get to the bathroom.

Where the heck are you Romeo? - R.h. Joseph

Long desirous of impaling the cretin who employed the magnificent conclusion of Beethoven's Ninth Symphony to induce a Pavlovian response in cell phone drones, my reaction to the dumbing down of the glorious language of Shakespeare in high school texts had me searching for an Elizabethan pike upon which to hoist the black hearts of the philistines responsible.
