Carts whirl around the grounds of Dad Miller Golf Course in Anaheim on a recent Saturday afternoon. Bent at the knees, a golfer swings his putter and sends a shot toward the hole. The ball tumbles to the left before coming to a stop. He walks over and tries again; this time, the ball curves […]
This goes out to you, my asshole boss: It's bad enough I work at a sexist, cheap, dressing-like-Tiger Woods internal-computer-infrastructure-is-falling-apart office-supply company that pays exactly $8 per hour for a skill set that used to be associated with a middle-class living.

Alex Luu's one-man performance piece Three Lives proves that a great autobiography doesn't make you a great storyteller. Luu made a harrowing escape from Saigon in 1975 at the age of 8 and has since struggled painfully —sometimes comically—to find his way in the Land of the Free. In Three Lives, he plays three roles: […]
