Dave Barry

Sites on the Web

If I were to make a list of my favorite humor authors, Dave Barry would definitely be at the top of the list. Dave Barry is a Pulitzer Prize-winning syndicated humor columnist at the Miami Herald. Dave's comedy is the inspiration for the CBS television show "Dave's World," and Dave's weekly columns appear in hundreds of newspapers world-wide.

One of the many newspapers that carries Dave's weekly humor columns is the University of Alabama's student newspaper, "The Crimson White" (a.k.a. "The Crimson Blight"). Unfortunately, the Crimson White does not print Dave's columns on a regular basis, so your fearless bus driver is often forced to turn to the Net for his weekly dose of Dave.

Since Dave Barry is a syndicated columnist for the Miami Herald, the best place I know of to find Dave's latest weekly column is on the Miami Herald's official Dave Barry page at:


This page has links to Dave's 6 most recent newspaper columns. The Denver Post also puts Dave's articles on the Web at http://www.denverpost.com/ but the Denver Post only puts *one* of Dave's columns on the Web each week, and that column is usually a couple of weeks old (translation: you best bet is to visit the Miami Herald's homepage first).

There is a *huge* archive of Dave Barry columns at the San Jose Mercury's "Mercury Center Web" site, but unfortunately you have to be a Mercury Center Web subscriber to be able to access this library. (It costs $4.95 a month to subscribe, but subscribers do get full online access to all of the San Jose Mercury's news stories and wire service reports, their Dave Barry library, and their *HUGE* online collection of *daily* comic strips, including B.C., Doonesbury, Garfield, and Non Sequitur).

Mercury Center Web does have a few Dave Barry columns that you can read for free at
