  • Control

    The Observer is ancient enough to remember when there was some semblance of civility in politics — when you could talk about a subject in mixed company without devolving into tribalism, each member eventually backing away slowly with their respective knives unsheathed and at the ready, each resolving to let the other stay mired in his or her stupidity.

Their world divides into user and used; morality consists of fear of getting caught. And whatever happens, somebody else is always to blame.

Entertainment

  • Play ball

    The challenge of a weekly publication as it pertains to the sporting world is that with the Arkansas Razorbacks baseball team locked in for a fight with Oregon State for the national championship over a three-day span, this column is going to be one of three things by the time it publishes: prescient, misguided or some combination of both.
