Pearl Harbor revisited

I'm a history buff, and I've read the definitive works on Pearl Harbor and the immediate aftermath by Gordon W. Prange. That's why the story of the discovery of the Japanese midget sub that was sighted and fired-upon by the USS Ward hours before the aerial attack commenced. While it's an interesting bit of history, […]

Krugman's timeline

I won't write too much about Krugman's latest New York Times column. Suffice it to say that Bush is evil (or stupid) and wants to make sure that poor people get poorer. Krugman's column claims or implies the following: 1. Bush knew the tax cut would put the budget into deficit. 2. The tax cut […]

Ignore the woman behind the curtain

I caught this on CNN's Inside Politics a couple of days ago and was waiting for the transcript to pop up so I could share it. The story was about a report on the number of women (not enough) on corporate boards and serving as corporate officers. It prompted the following quote. KIM KELLY, PRESIDENT […]

Curse of the Aztec

Just got finished watching the San Diego State University Choking Aztecs do what they do best against Fresno State -- snatching defeat from the jaws of victory. A 31-yard last-second field goal was blocked -- after they'd done everything else right.

Slowly losing my mind

The Archives for Hoystory are currently unavailable. I've done everything I usually do to make them reappear and it isn't happening. No ETA on their return. *UPDATE* One second they're there. The next second they're gone. I've entered some sort of bizarre Blogger-induced twilight zone that is sure to drive me every-so-slowly to the very […]

On the media and the Westerfield trial

I've been asked by several people what I think about San Diego Union-Tribune photographer Dan Trevan getting banned from the courtroom for taking a picture of Damon and Brenda van Dam as the guilty verdicts were announced in the case last week. Superior Court Judge William Mudd said photographer Dan Trevan violated judicial restrictions by […]

WorldCom's woes

The Washington Post has a long article on Worldcom's demise. Thousands of pages of previously undisclosed company documents reviewed by The Washington Post, along with interviews with former employees and people familiar with WorldCom's operations, reveal a grow-at-any-cost culture that made it possible for employees and managers to game the system internally and to deceive […]

The people have spoken

Based on the limited feedback I received in the first day after my site was redesigned the word isthat it looks nice, but the body type was a little difficult to read. No more! It's been changed to a slightly more reader-friendly font. I'm still looking for a little HTML expert consulting advice, otherwise I'll […]

The U.N., poverty, and liberals

I got into a little donnybrook back in late May, as Treasury Secretary Paul O'Neill and Bono toured Africa, for decrying how too much aid money finds its way into the black hole that is the U.N. bureaucracy. My good friend Jeff Hauser and I cordially debated (yeah, revisionist history, don't hit a guy while […]

Sept.11 revisited

It may be kinda sappy, but I was reading one of the numerous Sept. 11 anniversary-related stories that the AP is sending over the wires earlier tonight. In a story about the families of the victims of Flight 93, that crashed into the Pennsylvania countryside, and how they are dealing with the loss of their […]
