I dug a little for Argento’s columns. It turns out he has a blog and some, maybe all of them, are there. Start here and keep going to the Final Day of the Trial. The comments at the end of the latter are interesting and Mike even gets a proposition from a single girl. Argento is a more Dave Barry than H.L.Menken, certainly more fun than The Economist.
