Well, Let Me Say This About That is an interesting twist on current events, as told by Dallas’ finest and funniest Craig McCartney.

Well, Let Me Say This About That
Bright Lights, Big City

It was 1974, and I had never been to a gay bar. Neither had my friends George and Ricky. But we had managed to get the name of the hottest club in Dallas—the Bayou Landing—and we knew that it was on Pearl. Where that was, we had no clue. Back…

A Tale of Mark, Rick & Steve

Not too long ago, a conversation with some married friends, lubricated with vodka, turned to our youthful days. And that, naturally, moved on to sex. Not married sex, which nobody talks about. But single sex, which everyone talks about. My contribution involved a story from my salad days, which I…

Royal Recap

As a child, it was obvious to me that weddings and funerals are the great ceremonies of life. Even long-suffering Annie in Imitation of Life used her last moments on her deathbed to talk (whisper, really) about her funeral and Miss Suzie’s wedding. When it came to weddings, I remember…

For Your Viewing Pleasure

Watching television has never been better. That may come as a surprise to those of you who claim that “I don’t really watch much television.” But if you’re not spending your leisure time re-reading The Red and the Black or the complete works of Marcel Proust, you probably know what…

Is That All There Is?

I must have been around 12 or 13 the first time I heard Peggy Lee’s classic Is That All There Is? Why a precocious boy would develop an affinity for this song about disillusionment is best left to the professionals, I suppose. But at the time, it replaced These Boots…

Snap, Crackle & Pop

I need to get this column written in a hurry. Any minute now, there should be a callback from my doctor about getting in this afternoon on an urgent basis. For about a week now, my neck snaps, crackles and pops as if an entire box of Rice Krispies were…

The French Resistance

For as long as I can remember, some Americans have had a problem with the French. Sometimes we see it when we don’t get the support in international affairs to which we think we are entitled. Remember “freedom fries?” This particular strain of American entitlement comes from a convoluted logic…

A Walk On The Wilde Side

“It is absurd to divide people into good and bad. People are either charming or tedious.” Oscar Wilde said it, and anyone who has ever been to a cocktail party knows how true that is. Well, maybe except the tedious ones. I’m not a fan of “reality” television. To be…

Someone To Watch Over Me

So Mark Zuckerberg got hauled in this week to testify before Congress. Now, the spectacle of one of the world’s wealthiest persons having to answer questions while perched on a booster seat (he’s 5’ 7”) should be enough soap opera to satisfy even the most drama addicted among us. Of…

Context Is Everything

Have you seen this meme from Tiffany Trump? “Just for once, I’d like to turn on the News and hear, ‘President Trump is doing a great job!’” That statement is loaded with meaning, but only in context. When Trump’s daughter says it, it reads like a request, or even a…
