Long Form, Short Distance

Articles from The Lorem Ipsum consist of in-depth analysis and brief essays covering anything from the politics of gun laws to the proper way to make an Old Fashioned. New articles are published approximately once per week, or more when the spirit leads.

Arming America (With Information)
When it comes to gun laws, the power of rhetoric tends to be more powerful than reason, but gun violence like almost all problems is a mathematical one and will require a more nuanced approach. Here’s how the liberal position has got it all wrong.
Burned at the Stake
All life is precious. Unless you fall into these tough categories. We look at how men have put women in a tough position for generations, and are doing it again while repealing Roe.
Everything they don’t tell you about how to make the perfect old fashioned
In 1880, a decade marked by economic prosperity and innovation, James E. Pepper changed the world, perhaps forever. It was at The Pendennis Club in Louisville, KY where it happened. Pepper took a lump of sugar, Angostura bitters and some whiskey and created The Old Fashioned Cocktail hereafter know…

Pictures Worth a Thousand Emails

Each issue is illustrated by Daniel Herndon, producing political-ish cartoons. Most critics say he has no future in a career as an artist. But with decades as a brand consultant, it's unclear if the joke is on them or on him.

Daniel has always been funny looking, but The Lorem Ipsum provides much-needed comic relief from the daily doldrums of this week's news. Subscribe today for smart commentary and sarcasm we can all be proud of.

– Brandon Evans, Activist, and Community Person
A refreshing read of diverse topics. Part infotainment, part social commentary, always with a generous splash of dry humor. Thoughtful, non-partisan, and rarely predictable. The Lorem Ipsum is fast becoming one of my most anticipated subscriptions.

Friends - if you want to start your Friday with great reflection and lighthearted humor - I encourage you to subscribe to Daniel Herndon’s weekly missive!

Todd Gray, Influential Marketing Executive
Daniel's The Lorem Ipsum Weekly is full of great unbiased information with a dash of humor and levity to national and world events. You think you are going to get hit with hard-hitting news like a strong wave of bitter black coffee on your taste buds. Yet, Daniel's approach adds a hint of vanilla or pumpkin spice if you like that during a crisp fall morning. His objective insights allow readers like me to digest tense and sometimes stressful information going in our world with a bit of ease. I feel a sense of "I am not alone in the world" after reading The Lorem Ipsum. Daniel breaks down the fourth wall and asks readers for their insights via Twitter. I rarely see a writer find a direct way to reach out to readers. If you haven't subscribed to The Lorem Ipsum, you need to now.

I’ve been on the Lorem Ipsum site a bit this morning. Always good stuff for a slow day in the office!
