Centers' Little Helper

Dennis Hans, unrenowned former adjunct professor of mass comm and American foreign policy, relentlessly exposed the Bush administration’s “techniques of deceit” BEFORE the Iraq war, when it could have made a difference (see links). For decades he has fought baseball’s discrimination against lefthanded infielders and promoted his ingenious clockwise solution. A lifelong advocate for a flowing, non-brutal, flop-free NBA, he now champions the cause of its second-class citizens: the centers.

Wednesday, February 01, 2006

Welcome. I'll be writing a lot about NBA basketball, including how to make the game less brutal and fake, and more free-flowing, fast-paced and aesthically pleasing. I'm an expert on free-throw rhythm and technique, and on the nearly infinite variety of shooting styles that can succeed at the stripe and from the floor, so I'll be writing about that as well. I can be of great help to Shaq, Ben and Gerald Wallace, Dwight Howard, Reggie Evans and quite a few others, so if any of these guys (or their coaches or GMs) are friends of yours, have him or them give me a cyber-shout at hans_d@popmail.firn.edu.
I'll also be writing about politics, foreign policy, the news media, my troubled political party (the Democrats, who could use more Feingolds and Stephanie Tubbs-Joneses and fewer Bayhs and Clintons), and alcohol and illicit-drugs policy.
Feel free to nominate me for a MacArthur "genius" award, if you are one of the select few who are permitted to nominate. I'm also available for short-term academic gigs, under the right circumstances.
Here are some gems from my archives:
