Incredibly, the intersection between the world of Leblanguage and the world of Donald Trump is larger than logic would otherwise dictate.  And I’ll offer that on many measures I could help him be better at what he tries to do. Yesterday it was reported by The Young Turks, a progressive-skewing online news network, that the … Read more

Any Given Sunday

Not any given Sunday

The first Sunday of October, arguably the first true vestige of fall.  Except here on the edge of Culver City it will be in the 90s, feel like summer, and be the appropriate backdrop for what bodes to be the most exciting final day of major league baseball Leblanguage has seen since he first developed … Read more

In One Ear and In The Other

If like me you’re a devotee of The Daily, the Michael Barbaro-fronted weekday podcast from The New York Times, you know why the last five words are without separation.  That phrase is the semi-colon between the podcast’s signature main story, an extended interview or series of sound bites that delves into … Read more

Take me out to the ballgame!!

After a one-year hiatus my favorite weekend of the summer is here.  The New York Mets are finally back in Los Angeles, this time for a four-game series which I will be fortunate enough to be attending at least three of them in person. Some of the best days of my life have been spent … Read more
