Funny, but I got lots of emails and comments asking if I am okay, etc. I am! A combination of my very busiest time of year (January and February) followed by a trip to Europe (Netherlands, Belgium, and France) has kept me tied up and away from things a bit. Normal activity due to start [...]
Bono is going free market and Woody Harrelson is an anarchist.
Especially in the city of Detroit. These are all taken with a Samsung S3 cell phone. I continue to experiment with cell phone photography.
This comment about Ed Snowden may seem harmless, except in the context of knowing that this is how most catatonic Americans think about the Snowden affair. Try not to wince at the woeful cliches rolled out by the amateur wordsmith. He is a coward, wisp, punk, traitor, gut spiller, unpatriotic, fool, stupid, backstabber, yellow belly, [...]

Yet all over the great United States, artisanal food makers are shut down and put out of business due to “improper” [...]
“Animals are more than ever a test of our character, of mankind’s capacity for empathy and for decent, honorable conduct and faithful stewardship. We are called to treat them with kindness, not because they have rights or power or some claim to equality, but in a sense because they don’t; because they all stand unequal [...]
Gordon Crovitz, in the Wall Street Journal, bemoans the liability issues that may cause us to lose out on computer technology replacing a human driver in our vehicles. He advocates computers replacing humans, and he blames plaintiff lawyers for not letting this happen fast enough. This is not as far-fetched as it may sound. The [...]
