Pleased to nominate Her Father’s Daughter by published by for the 2019 book prize, and more pleased to see this great study of gender, networks, and power so honored.

Someone else, for whom (like Bill Shankly) football is more important than—say—life and death.

I’m sure BJ is delightful but someone needs to tell him where he can put his letterboxes.

People complain about children on planes. Let me tell you, nothing is more annoying than a private-school educated Englishman who doesn’t stop laughing at his own anecdotes for an entire flight.

1/ Stuff of nightmares in the 13th-century Cantigas de Santa Maria: during Mass a priest is about to consume the consecrated wine but sees a "big spider" swimming about in the chalice. "Like a Good Spaniard, he wasted no time" and drank the wine

Yes, that rally explodes a lot of entrenched conventional narratives about the history and moral leadership of the US in the world.

Even more ironic since Abd ar Rahman III built the so-called ‘Cathedral of Córdoba’.... Not to mention, he used Visigothic materials and adopted pre-Islamic architectural styles.

Not to mention: one really good way to clear up any supposed misperceptions would be to allow full access to reporters and elected representatives.

Just read this tantalizing phrase in a chapter on film representations of : "If we ignore the slightly futurist plot of the bizarre "Il telefono nel Medioevo" (Telephone in the Middle Ages, 1907)....". How can one *ignore* this?! And where can I find a copy?
