|Andrew Lindemann Malone's Internet Playpen|
This page includes in-depth examinations of things, rants that aren't quite wholly dedicated to joking around, explanations of phenomena around us, and other such pieces that aren't quite frivolous enough to count as humor and that aren't quite unentertaining enough to leave off the website. Also I'm now putting personal experiences up here if they're not humorous enough to be humor.

Predatory mental-health medication advertisements get attacked Malone-style.
Images the world gives us and narratives we try to fit ourselves into.
The tale of Silver Spring's transformation, begun in medias res and continuing until it stops. Monday, July 14th: Trouble at the AFI Silver. The good kind of trouble.
In the spring of 2002, I wrote a column for the Diamondback about economics issues, titled "Cash Rules Everything Around Me" because I like the Wu-Tang Clan and their wonderful songs. Following are the nine columns, in chronological order:
In which I introduce myself and the idea behind the column, make fun of politicians, and insert a smashing Wu reference.
An explanation of why Maryland's student ticket distribution system was doomed to fail.
I basically castigate both sides of the debate over rent control for College Park for ignoring the other side.
What credit is and why it matters to you, you unthinking credit user. My editor Lauren Golfer wrote the headline, wrote an insanely great teaser I wish I had so I could copy it and put it here, and did a really wonderful job editing the piece. Thanks, Lauren.
Those wacky U-Md. authorities!
They say free trade has failed. I say we haven't even tried it.
Why the incentives created by the NBA's rookie salary cap guaranteed that Chris Wilcox would become a Clipper for the 2002-3 basketball season.
The grand finale, in which I destroy everything I wrote during the semester. Another Diamondback-supplied headline.
If this page is unattractive, you may want to consider ditching Netscape. If it's still unattractive, well, that's my fault.
