The California Dream lives despite California’s reality

Tom Motley lives in Denver. He’s been reading and seeing and hearing a lot about California of late, none of it good. He called last week to ask if I thought it was safe for his daughter to move here. I paused before answering. I’ve known Tom since college, so when I say “old friend”, I mean it literally. We’ve known each other so long an outright lie wouldn’t fly. Whatever spin I put on the California Dream (2021 edition) would have to have enough grit to pass the smell test. I scanned my menta...

Cotton plantations and non-consensual kisses: how Disney became embroiled in the culture wars

Nature Heals Some More: Fireworks Are Returning to the Disney Theme Parks

If you live in the Anaheim or Orlando areas of the country, you’ve no doubt gotten used to – slightly, perhaps – the sound of silence every night over the last 15 months.

But as the COVID-19 pandemic continues to abate, nature continues to heal. Today, Disney has confirmed that fireworks spectaculars are returning to the theme parks this July. Tha...

Evidence suggests COVID-19 was in US in late 2019

By Mike Stobbe | Associated Press NEW YORK — A new analysis of blood samples from 24,000 Americans taken early last year is the latest and largest study to suggest that the new coronavirus popped up in the U.S. in December 2019 — weeks before cases were first recognized by health officials. The analysis is not definitive, and some experts remain skeptical, but federal health officials are increasingly accepting a timeline in which small numbers of COVID-19 infections may have occurred in the U....

Niles: It’s a golden age for roller coaster fans

Like many theme park fans, I have loved roller coasters for a long time. But what many parks are doing with coasters right now is helping me love these thrill rides even more.

Drops over 400 feet and speeds over 140 miles per hour pushed the limits that an average human being can stand. So parks and coaster manufacturers pivoted toward more innovative ways to capture the public’s attention. Sign up f...
