After a four-hour delay on our way to Paris, I wanted blood from the airline—or at least something to cover $10 beers from a bad airport bar. A food voucher wasn't gonna … [Read more...] about How I got my airline to pay $1,300 for a flight delay

Josh Nerius, The Washington Post Published 7:34 am PDT, Thursday, April 25, 2019 FILE - This Feb. 6, 2015, file photo shows a measles, mumps and rubella vaccine on a countertop at a pediatrics clinic in Greenbrae, Calif. Hundreds of opponents of mandatory vaccines are opposing a California proposal to give state public health officials instead of local doctors the power to decide which children can skip their shots before attending school. They plan to pack the first legislative hearing Wednesday, April 24, 2019 on a bill that proponents say would stem bogus exemptions granted in many cases by doctors who are paid to excuse students from vaccinations. Supporters say pockets of unvaccinated students help to spread measles. less FILE - This Feb. 6, 2015, file photo shows a measles, mumps and rubella vaccine on a countertop at a pediatrics clinic in Greenbrae, Calif.

A VICTIM has revealed the horrific moment a man infected with HIV told him "I ripped the condom, I got you". Brave Lenny has waived his right to anonymity, to share the harrowing moment he found out he was HIV positive in February 2016. The American, who currently lives in Brighton, was deliberately infected with the virus after Daryl Rowe, 27, secretly removed the condom they were using. Rowe, dubbed the 'HIV hairdresser', is the first person to be convicted for deliberately infecting others with the virus in the UK. I remember saying to myself, how can I be so stupidVictim Lenny Speaking on the BBC documentary The Man Who Used HIV As A Weapon, Lenny recalled how "adamant" Rowe was to have unprotected sex. But it wasn't until a few weeks later when he tried to block Rowe on Whatsapp, did he find out what really happened when they slept together. Lenny said: "He said, 'You're gonna burn... you're stupid. I ripped the condom, I got you." Although he felt a "rush of fear" over him, he … [Read more...] about Victim reveals horrific moment smirking ‘HIV hairdresser’ told him ‘I ripped the condom, I got you’
HI PAUL, are you looking forward to bringing your Impro Chums to Belfast and Derry?Oh absolutely. We haven't toured in about three years or something and we're doing more dates on this tour than we normally do. The thing with impro is that every show is completely different. I've just recently finished doing my first proper pantomime [playing Widow Twankey in Aladdin] in Wimbledon, which was 50 shows in a month, two shows a day – and there were days when you'd wake up and go "Urghhhh, here we go again."With the impro show, because it is all completely new every time, there is nothing to worry about: if you hit a sticky bit in an impro show, you can immediately change it. You're not stuck with what you rehearsed. It's a joy that it's always fun and different. You don't get tired of it.You first encountered improvised comedy after joining London's Comedy Store Players in 1985. Do you still take part in their regular Sunday night impro show?Unless I'm otherwise detained, I'm always … [Read more...] about Paul Merton on Impro Chums Irish shows and 29 years of Have I Got News For You

Cohen December 31, 2018 Every December I go back and read every column that I wrote the previous year and figure out what I got wrong. This year was easier than my previous bouts of self-criticism. Having been properly chastened by my substantial errors about the 2016 election, I’ve stayed away from making grand predictions, which substantially improved my batting average. Still, no one is perfect.My mea culpas must start, ironically, with a piece I wrote in 2017. In June of that year Democratic congressional candidate Jon Ossoff lost a special election in Georgia in which he had been incessantly, and negatively, linked to House minority leader Nancy Pelosi. His defeat led to more calls by Democrats for Pelosi to give up her post as the party’s leader in the House. I wrote a piece begrudgingly endorsing this argument: Advertisement “One … [Read more...] about What I got wrong in 2018
