Things going on right now … or at least when I posted it here.

Thinking about what's happening.

  • Cyberspace is forever January 13, 2011
    Once you put something on the internet it stays there forever! There was a lot of news recently about privacy in the digital age we now live in.  Back in 2002 I had written a piece on that subject for a site in .  I thought it might be relevant today and that I might ...
  • Election Reaction December 12, 2010
    My reaction to the elections is a bit delayed.  I guess I’m still a little in shock.  Needless to say I did not expect the outcome.  When I discussed it with Professor Levine at UT and he predicted a 50 seat loss in the house.  I thought that was impossible, I told him maybe ...
  • Super Bowl Saints February 7, 2010
    Well beyond everyones expectations (except for the folks in New Orleans) the Saints have won and the Colts will have to sneak out of Miami in the middle of the night with their tails between their legs just as they did from Baltimore all those years ago. When I lived in Maryland the Colts were ...
  • Election 08 September 20, 2008
    It occurred to me today that the Obama campaign is failing to address a very big concern of the voters.  The voters of the country have lost all faith in government.  His ideas and plans and policies are right but voters are not hearing from him what they are hearing form the other side and that is ...
  • Political Catch Up June 4, 2008

Again, both Liz and I were selected as delegates to the Nevada State convention which met in Reno. ...

  • Election 2006 November 3, 2006
    Have you seen the adds being put on by AARP? You know, the ones that say “Don’t Vote”?  Well not voting isn’t the thing to do, but that’s not what they’re telling to do anyway.  What they’re say is “Don’t vote until you know where the candidates stand on the issues.”Well, I did that, I ...
  • TRUST ME! May 11, 2006
    George W. Bush: “…our intelligence activities strictly target al Qaeda and their known affiliates.”  ME!George W. Bush:  ”…the government does not listen to domestic phone calls without court approval.”   ME!George W. Bush: “…the privacy of ordinary Americans is fiercely protected in all our activities.” TRUST ME!George W. Bush: “…We’re not mining or trolling through the personal ...
  • Katrina September 16, 2005
    My thoughts and emotions on this subject are so great that I can hardly contain them and have a great deal of difficulty expressing them. But the President’s speech demands some comment.It was a good speech. He has a good speechwriter.
