Check here for the latest Dang happenings on the Web, in print, and in person.
I’ve been thinking lately that I should be writing more pieces about what’s going on in the news. You always hear about how the American public isn’t well enough informed on current events, and that is not good for the efficient functioning of a democratic society. It’s as if the extent of most people’s reading is what they get from bumper stickers and tee-shirts, especially those worn by well-endowed women. Since it’s not likely to help any if I put it on my tee shirt, I figured I’d fill the gap by providing some commentary in this space.
Mardi Gras was special for me this year, as it featured my acting debut here in Southwest Louisiana. It was in a big production, too—the presentation for the Krewe de la Famille ball. If you didn’t catch it, I’m sure it’s out there on YouTube somewhere. Just do a search using the keywords “dancing clowns,” or better still, “spasmodic musk oxen.”

The holiday season that has just passed is a time when many folks take to the roads to visit loved ones. This year, we were no exception.

The time you’ve all been waiting for is here! No, it’s not the cancellation of Keeping Up With The Kardashians. It’s better than that- the Dang Yankee’s annual Christmas Article! Check out “Winter Wonderhouse” in the current issue of The Jambalaya News.
The Dang Yankee can go along with just about any excuse for a party. So why did he have such an issue with the excuse that his friend, Larry, came up with recently? It’ll make cents once you read “Burn This!”, his latest installment in The Jambalaya News.
It’s time again for The Dang Yankee’s annual Thanksgiving article! This year, we’re taking aim at yet another holiday tradition—the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. It’s a spectacular event, one that you really need to be there to appreciate, particularly given how the TV networks cover it. Read about it in “Where’s Snoopy?” in the current issue of the Jambalaya News.
If you’re planning to go to the Texas Renaissance Festival this year, be prepared. And by that I mean, make sure your credit line is big enough to outfit the cast of a major Broadway production. Why? Because that’s what it’s going to take if you plan on buying anything from the vendors, even if it’s just an ostrich feather. Take it from the Dang Yankee’s experience, as described in The Merchants of RenFest, appearing in the current issue of the Jambalaya News.
This week in the Jambalaya News, the Dang Yankee talks about his recent efforts to manage his time better and get more done. Learn his secrets in “Git-R-Done, Yankee!” now available online.
