Setting the record straight

Pejman Yousefzadeh has a long, involved, link-filled post on gubernatorial hopeful Cruz Bustamante and his ties to the racist, separatist organization, MEChA. Some partisans have gone out of their way to excuse the inexcusable. Pejman does an excellent job of taking them to task.

Acknowledging Democracy

It seems at least one Texas Democrat has decided that the majority rules, and has ended his "exile" in New Mexico, likely giving Republicans the quorum they need to push through a fair redistricting plan. [If you're unfamiliar with the background of this situation, check here and here.] In the New York Times story, Democrat […]

Setting the bar low

CNet's News.com site often does a pretty good job of tech reporting -- explaining sometimes complex issues in terms most computer users can understand. However, this statement in a Q&A with State Sen. Deborah Bowen had me chuckling: The head of a Senate subcommittee on new technologies, Bowen is no technophobe. She's among the many […]

Memories

I was going through some old files, straightening some things up, when I came across some of my old Cal Poly "Student Grade Reports." It's been nearly a decade since I graduated, and I've forgotten many of these classes I was required to take. Interestingly enough, I came across my final grade report -- I […]

Limiting your critics

On ABC News' "This Week" on Sunday, California Gov. Gray Davis dismissed criticism from "The Governator" by saying: "Until he sits in those shoes -- and I don't think he's going to have a chance to -- he's really in no position to criticize what we've done," the governor said. I shall attempt to follow […]

Saddam and the Najaf bomb

An audiotape alleged to have been made by Saddam Hussein denied responsibility for last Friday's bombing in Najaf that killed scores, including a leading Iraqi cleric. This is curious because it's probably the first time a terrorism supporter has released a statement denying responsibility. Also, when I first heard about it, I thought: "Of course, […]

Letter from Iraq

The following letter appeared in Monday's San Diego Union-Tribune. Unfortunately, due to the less-than-stellar integration between the print side and the electronic side, it's not available online. I am currently deployed in northern Iraq, and would like to express my thanks to everyone who supports us and what we are fighting for. For those, however, […]

Tom Clancy is one of America's best storytellers. The insurance salesman turned author has, over the past two decades, created a world of intrigue where ordinary men do extraordinary things.

Good reads

The Wall Street Journal published a couple of good articles over the holiday weekend. The first is a look at someone who knows all about scandals and cover-ups -- the junior senator from New York, Hillary Clinton. The second is a look at the looming split within the Episcopal Church between those who follow the […]

In a just world, SB 918 and its New York counterpart would make the Supreme Court* say: "well, we tried to let you keep shall issue, but you morons just couldn't help yourselves, so now constitutional carry is the law of the land".

*Hopefully it doesn't need to go to SCOTUS.

New talking points just dropped in WaPo -- if that's the excuse for the raid, how does the FBI also justify letting Clinton skate when she also had docs "classified at the highest classification level"? https://www.washingtonpost.com/national-security/2022/08/11/garland-trump-mar-a-lago/?tid=ss_tw

The most dramatic consequences of government intervention occurred in Sri Lanka, where a 2021 fertilizer ban led to a massive reduction in yields, sparking starvation and an economic crisis that brought down the government in July.
