12 Baby Names Straight From The Mayflower
Huffington Post - about 2 years
Most of the 102 passengers who traveled on the Mayflower in 1620 had names like John, William, Mary and Elizabeth, but there were some more unique names on the passenger list as well. Here are some of the most interesting ones -- for possible baby name inspiration. Bartholomew Bartholomew Allerton arrived on the Mayflower at the age of 7 or 8 with his parents, Isaac and Mary, and a brother named Remember; he later returned to England. New Testament name Bartholomew -- one of the 12 apostles -- has been rarely used in modern times but could get some attention as one of the newly trending long names. Constance Constance Hopkins was a teenager when she arrived on the Mayflower with her family. A virtue name, Constance was a popular choice from the 1930s to '50s -- number 82 in 1942 -- but nickname Connie has stood in the way of a revival.  Damaris Damaris Hopkins came on the Mayflower as a toddler with her parents, Stephen and Elizabeth.

Breaking Bad's Place in TV History
Huffington Post - over 4 years
I have an exceptionally low tolerance for subpar television drama. This is not a cross-genre condition. I will lazily eyeball a hackneyed episode of The King Of Queens or motor through a Storage Wars marathon, both instances leaving me to question my life's trajectory. But drama is one area where I will not skimp. If you expect me to engage in video largely devoid of comedic, documentary, athletic or meteorological merit, it better be gripping. Enter, Walter Hartwell White. I am going to go out on a limb to predict this Sunday's final episode of AMC's Breaking Bad will be the best in breed: the best final episode ever. For this distinction I apply no genre caveat. Stack them all up against each other. Seinfeld. The Sopranos. The Wire. Even the inevitable The Simpsons last hurrah. Breaking Bad feels like the one on which you place your bet. If, due to a galling lack of self care, you are not caught up on the program, I won't shatter your future pleasure with endless fanboy bla...

Best Week Ever - almost 6 years
Everyone knows that not paying taxes can become a celebrity’s legacy. (Go with me on this.) When someone mentions Willie Nelson or Wesley Snipes, if you don’t automatically make a joke about weed or Passenger 57, the next easy go-to in your bag of Nelson-Snipes jokes is totally about tax evasion, I just know it. But stars who don’t abide by the tax code are such a common thing that it’s not that shocking anymore once you hear who’s been in hot water for it. Martha Stewart. Snoop Dogg. Val Kilmer. Teri Polo! Clearly she wasn’t reporting her income from being a Miss America judge. So sure, lots of celebs get in trouble for it, but haven’t we all wondered who the sexiest tax evaders are? We sure have: 12. Burt Reynolds This centerfold was no angel (see what I did there?), Burt owed the state of California $225,000 back in 1996. [Photo] 11. Sophia Loren Back in the early 1980′s, Sophia owed Italy over $600,000. You know if Berlusconi was president back then, she would ...
