• RV camping in the Wal-Mart parking lot
• Outwitting “smart” kitchen appliances and service contracts

• The Olympics, where people from all over the world come together to accuse each other of cheating
• The truth about the Dakotas, the Lone Ranger, and feng shui

And much, much more—including some truths about journalism and serious thoughts about 9/11.
