Humor Columns for the IARR Newsletter
This page contains the links to columns I have written for the International Association of Relationship Researchers . It has been a lot of fun over the last ten years. The column allowed me to write about Angelina Jolie and the Spice Girls and gives me an excuse to read People magazine! I thank my friend Kathy Carnelley for first asking me to do this. Thanks also to the editors who followed her (Susan Boon, Lesley Verhofstadt, and Marian Morrey) who allowed me to publish my silly musings. Thanks are also due to my students (Danielle Popp, Tessa West, Amanda Snook, and Randi Garcia) who were conscripted into giving me comments and my wife Marina Julian who gave me comments and ideas for columns.
Some of what I have written may be considered offensive. So if you offend easily, please do not read. You might notice that many of these columns make more fun of me than of others.
