Serious about global warming?

Every two years around election time politicians are faced with the question of whether they want to pass a bill or have an issue in the upcoming election. It's cynical, but that's the way politicians minds work. Along those same lines, a Nobel Prize-winning scientist has come up with a relatively painless solution to the […]

Old leftists run Editor & Publisher

Greg Mitchell, the editor or Editor & Publisher magazine, has a new column out decrying the fact that American newspapers aren't decrying the fact that the United States is supplying a Democratic ally in the Middle East with arms. Simply put: Those are largely American made, supplied, and/or paid for missiles falling on Lebanon today, […]

Hoystory reads

I recently got some books in the mail, including Bryan Peterson's "Understanding Digital Photography." The book is a pretty good primer for those who've gone out and bought a new digital SLR. However, I would suggest that Peterson's "Understanding Exposure" book is the better buy if you're only going to buy one book. Two notes […]

Speaking truth to power

I probably agree with Peter Beinart once every century, so it's important to note the occasion when it occurs. Yesterday, Beinart laid into House and Senate Democrats for their faux outrage at Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki. How, exactly, publicly humiliating Maliki and making him look like an American and Israeli stooge would enhance his […]

That's gotta hurt

Here's a couple of d'oh! moves by Democrats this week. First there was liberal commentator Bill Press' comment that a Lovenstein Institute study had cofirmed that President George W. Bush is the stupidest president in the last century or so. Of course, this is an old Internet hoax -- I was first shown it by […]

Pretty scary stuff

The New York Times yesterday decried the bill that passed the Senate the other day prohibiting people from taking minor girls across state lines for abortions without parental permission as "mean." This is not a suprise. Better than 3/4ths of Americans support bills like this, but the Times editorial page is so far out in […]

Heard on the radio

I was listening to Hugh Hewitt as I made my way into work yesterday and at 30 minutes after the hour the few minutes of local news and traffic came on. Among the items worthy of mention at 3:30 p.m. yesterday: That the latest American Idol runner-up appeared on "The View" and sang her version […]

Any idiot can do this job

Ana Marie Cox, formerly of the anal sex jokes and Wonkette.com, has been named Washington Editor of Time.com. Yes, that Time.com. And the mainstream media continues to wonder why it is losing respect?

Reassessing the U.N.

For a long time I was basically of the opinion that the United Nations was merely useless when it came to dealing with war, peace and the other goings-on between nations. I may be a little slow on the uptake, but now I believe that the United Nations is far worse; it is a barrier […]

Who works for peanuts?

Turns out the answer is journalists. There's not much in the way of details, but the average first-year reporter made $29,048 last year. The report on the survey doesn't say how much I'm underpaid (answer: a lot), but it's good to know reporters today are making far better than the $8 an hour I worked […]
