85 things to do in Tacoma before you die

As I write this, I am burning up under my comforter. My entire body aches, and I have a temperature that I believe is approaching 140 degrees. There’s nothing worse than being bedridden. Unless you count being boat-ridden or, even worse, raft-ridden. Or even just plain ridden. Also, having a

Alright already

The crowd I joined for You Don’t Mess With the Zohan roared with laughter, and I understand why. Adam Sandler’s new comedy is shameless in its eagerness to extract laughs from every possible breach of taste or decorum, and why am I even mentioning taste and decorum in this context?

Ask Amy

Beating a debt horse My boyfriend of two years has been living with his parents for four years. He's 49, and first said he had an apartment near them but never wanted me to come over. I soon caught on, and he confessed he was ashamed of being in debt and

Bacon on the mind

On one of my recent blog cruises, I noticed that Doyle’s Public House is serving three slices of bacon for $1 Monday nights. While I am not much of a meat eater, I do go weak in the knees for all things cured. It’s a salt thing. Fortunately, my blood

Oh, Bobble Tiki knows. It's painful. It costs 50 bucks to fill Bobble Tiki’s Tercel, nearly $100 to fill a Chevy Tahoe. But it's making Bobble Tiki more aware. And by all accounts, America only responds and behaviors will only change when faced with ugly crises, especially those that maul

Hey … pssst … remember government of the people, for the people and by the people? Some crazy people in Tacoma are trying that old game again. And it sort of works. Now a year in the making, the so-called Community Based Services program is an experiment in community involvement

Cute for the kiddies

Kung Fu Panda is a story that almost tells itself in its title. It is so hard to imagine a big, fuzzy panda performing martial arts encounters that you intuit (and you will be right) that the panda stars in an against-all-odds formula, which dooms him to succeed. For the

Music columnists and critics write a lot of crazy shit. It can be hard to pump out quality copy on a regular basis, and sometimes the pressure gets the best of those whose job it is to do just that. Sometimes music critics write things that are just plain nuts. This

Few people were likely shocked by the sudden resignation of Ruston Mayor Michel Transue, who said in his resignation letter: “Our Town government is presently functioning neither cohesively nor in a fashion that benefits the good people of our Town.

Fall arts anchor

The theater business is tough even during the good times, and a slowdown in the economy that leads to tighter wallets of ticket buyers as well as corporate donors leads to those tough times becoming unbearable and unsustainable for some theaters. So it is always nice to see a theater reach
