Shaw Thoughts: The World According to Golf

Shaw Thoughts: The World According to Golf

English is considered an easy language to start learning because it’s gender-neutral and doesn’t require different conversational rules for addressing friends and strangers. But hard to master because there are so many words with odd spellings and irregular pronunciations, and so many differ…

Shaw Thoughts: Beach life leaves an enduring impression

This magazine, like many others, assigns every issue a theme or two. And this columnist, like many others, follows the theme when it feels right and doesn't when it doesn't. This issue has twin themes: America the Beautiful and Beach Life. And since both are so relevant to me, I had to think…

SHAW THOUGHTS: Celebrating 40 years of marriage and a (temporary) divorce from the BlackBerry

One of legendary Yankee Yogi Berra's most famous malapropisms is "déjà vu all over again," and the Yogiman actually bumbled into perfect misusage, because it's often the best description of one event that feels eerily like another, including an Asian vacation Mary and I took over the winter …

May June 2012 Shore magazine's letter from the editor

Political corruption not limited to Chicago or Illinois

Political corruption not limited to Chicago or Illinois

Ever since venerated East Coast writer A.J. Liebling foisted the condescending label "Second City" on Chicago more than half a century ago, ignoring our preference for "Windy City," Chicago's political and civic leaders have done everything possible to shed Liebling's pejorative put-down by …
