An inconvenient truth

There's bad news for fans of Michael Moore's "Sicko" and the single-payer/socialized medicine solution he advocates. Cancer survival rates in Britain are among the lowest in Europe, according to the most comprehensive analysis of the issue yet produced. England is on a par with Poland despite the NHS spending three times more on health care. […]

Rude awakening

I was awakened at about 6:30 a.m. this morning by thunder, lightning and car alarms going off as the remnants of Hurricane Dean moved into the Northern San Diego County. It rained pretty good too. This concludes your annual "weather" report for San Diego County.

If in doubt... pt.2

Last month I noted that President George W. Bush was able to travel back in time to and set policies on dealing with terrorists during the Clinton administration. Well, he's done it again. From a New York Times editorial: When George W. Bush won the White House, Mr. Tenet seems to have shifted his priorities. […]

She sounds French

When I saw this report, the first thought was: "DeGaulle of that woman!" Elvira Arellano was kicked out of the United States last week after she entered the country illegally -- twice -- and defied a deportation order for years. The United States is the one who broke the law first. By letting people cross […]

Just making stuff up

If you haven't had a chance to read it, head over to National Review Online and check out this article by former U.S. Attorney Andrew McCarthy on The New York Times false reporting on the recent FISA fix. So, have you heard the latest? Your business records can now be taken away by Big Brother […]

Public responsibilities

A couple of years back, San Diego Police released the mug shot and name of a 17-year-old murder suspect to the local media. The kid was on the loose and, in the standard law-enforcement wording, "armed and dangerous." A journalistic judgement had to to be made. Does the newspaper run the mug shot? The initial […]

Words that get you fired

There are certain statements that usually get you fired. I knew a guy who got fired for telling his boss the infamous "Dick Cheney" line. Voters should fire Rep. Bob Filner for this line: “I am a congressman and can do whatever I want,” [immigration supervisor Juan J.] Ramirez quoted Filner as saying. That's it. […]

Sanity prevails

Monday morning the remaining charges were dropped against the two 13-year-old boys who were arrested and charged with crimes that would require them to register as sex offenders for the rest of their lives for (stupidly) slapping girls on their butts. "I believe these youths have now moved from a model of bad behavior in […]

Moral Equivalency Pt. 1

CNN started its series on moral equivalency Tuesday night with the first part of its "God's Warriors" series with a focus on Judaism. (For those who are interested, the Little Green Footballs discussion thread on the episode is here.) I haven't had time to watch the series, and probably won't until this weekend, but I […]

On newspapers

There's been two articles occupying tabs on my browser for a few days on the future of newspapers. The first one that I want to get out of the way is this one written by John C. Dvorak in PC Magazine. I only link to the column out of habit, there's no need to read […]

Amazing farewell for #DeltaIVHeavy st #VANDENBERG and great photos by @lwood83 @RC_FirePhoto and Matt Udkow https://www.noozhawk.com/article/vandenberg_sfb_bids_farewell_to_delta_iv_heavy_rocket

I tweeted a few days ago about what appeared to me to be a largely baseless charge of plagiarism made by @PhilWMagness. The evidence of plagiarism is more extensive than I was led to believe by the article I’d read about it. I’m deleting the tweets and I apologize to Mr. Magness.

I remember the 2009 Green Revolution in Iran where people were protesting for basic human rights. The Obama administration, including you as Secretary of State, never did anything to help them. And Biden won't do anything now, because he'd rather have a terrible nuke deal. https://twitter.com/HillaryClinton/status/1573069778021150722

Hillary Clinton @HillaryClinton

Iranians are protesting for their basic human rights in the aftermath of the horrific death of Mahsa Zhina Amini. Iranians deserve to live free from violence and intimidation. The world is watching.
