Puns and fun with the National Society of Newspaper Columnists

Founded 40 years ago by a few lonely columnists looking to share war stories, the NSNC (pronounced “Eness-en-CEE” after the third cup of coffee or second glass of wine) hosts its conference in a different city every year and attracts a formidable line-up of special guests willing to speak of their time in the trenches.

A night at the Round Table

Surely the servers at the Algonquin never laid a tablescape this enchanting for a bunch of cranky egg-eating writers.

Finding serenity with the Saints & Sages

The Saints & Sages of West Victory Drive have been meeting for six years and boast an average age of about 80—bolstered by Elder Leona Williams, who’s 93 and still has her own parking space out front.

Can Savannah create good parking karma?

This is going to be hard to believe—the new plan seems to create better and more parking options to accommodate our many visitors while taking into account residents’ quality of life. Quit yer scoffing and consider.

Science, it’s a thing

"If we cut the public funding for basic research, it’s going to be very difficult to maintain the standards of knowledge in our society."

Aggressive Civility and other important newspeak

Jim Reed and Phillips Reynolds Price have co-founded the new social action organization, which not only makes a fabulous hashtag but stages events and sells swag to benefit the American Civil Liberties Union and the Southern Poverty Law Center.
