    Amable Aristy vs. Leonel

    DR1 news tells us that Amable is gaining ground on the PLD. Inside scoop, anybody? What say you, Mirador? HB? Chiri? The Kid honestly wants to know.

    Hurricane David and the Pope

    There are folks who believe that Hurricane David was a punishment from "above" because of the Pope's visit that year. I ain't making that up, and no one will find in Wikipedia (not even Nals), but I talk to people and ask lots of questions, and that's what some have told me. Now, as a...

    Antony Santos and my huge ego

    "I should not talk so much about myself if there were anybody else whom I knew as well." And with that declaration from the "Economy" section of Walden, Henry David Thoreau answered some of his critics 150 years ago. Of Joe Morgan, the Big Red Machine spark plug of the mid-70s, it was said...

    Castro wins in DR in 2012

    DR residents

    Moderator, if you feel this is not DR-related, please do not hesitate to close it and/or delete it. Thanks. As two of you know, The Kid has been thinking about returning home to be with friends and family, although not for at least a year. Here's the deal: I've read about ordering books and...

    What are you reading?

    A few years ago, someone posted the question: What are DR1ers reading? From the responses, The Kid picked up some reading ideas, and here's hoping he can do the same again. What are you reading, DR1ers? -The Kid

    Coolest KID EVER!

    Okay, before you people (you know who you are) start asking what's a 2-year-old doing up so late, thus blaming his "bad" parents, engage your imagination. (liberals, you're okay, just go straight to the link, the points below are for black/white thinkers and gun owners and type-A...

    Biggest lies EVER... ?

    These aren't jokes but stories I've heard from an ex-coworker: 1. He was pumping gas once and stepped on a beetle, but the insect was dragging him away; took the insect home and placed it next to an old-style cash register with heavy wooden base, and it was pushing the register off the table...

    The Kid's out of the closet

    This past December, The Kid outed himself to some friends and family members in the DR. Yes, that's right: born and bred en la tierra "santa" de Higuey, The Kid is now a militant atheist. And I have a question for long-term DR residents: Do you know of any atheist organizations in the DR...

    The Cardinal is at it again

    And this time he's voicing his displeasure with a US Congress delegation traveling to the DR to observe working conditions in the bateyes and to discuss the pros and cons of US-DR free trade treaties. He's saying the US does not have the moral authority for such things. From now on, nothing...

    Question for Chiri, maco, cobraboy, Lambada and all

    I've found a new obsession which will require lots of reading. But being a slow reader, I don't have much time. The question is this: have you taken speed-reading courses? And if so, did they help? Amazon and Barnes & Noble offer self-help books, and comments from readers are usually...
