Alert the FBI: I often like to check up and see what brought people to my site. Sitemeter does an awfully good job of that for a good price -- free. A vast majority of people come here from either bookmarks or Instapundit. But, by far the most interesting source of visitors often comes from […]

Well, Cox Communications came out to look at the cable going into my new place. After approximately 1 1/2 hours of checking connections the problem is apparently high up on a pole. It's actually working right now, but it's very spotty. That may affect my posting. Very frustrating.

It appears that I was misled on the previous item due to poor reporting. (*Takes the editor and reporter of the piece out back and beats them.*) Instapundit's Glenn Reynolds got the following e-mail earlier today: Dr. Steve White of the University of Chicago sent this: The researchers collected thymic stem cells from mice, not […]

I dropped a note earlier Monday to Instapundit's Glenn Reynolds regarding a post he had made about the human cloning and a recent scientific breakthrough. Scientists in Australia have grown a functioning thymus from stem cells. Glenn referred to this development as a setback for anti-cloning forces (of which I am a member -- I […]

California governor's race: It looks like Gov. Gray Davis made another boneheaded decision that will end up costing California taxpayers more money -- and possibly deepen the state's budget woes, according to a report in the San Diego Union-Tribune. The legal bills continue to pile up as Gov. Gray Davis tries to extricate himself from […]

Drugs for old-fogies: Adding prescription drug coverage to Medicare has been a topic of debate since the 2000 election. Both parties, in order to pander to the vast majority of senior citizens who vote, have said they're for it. The Democrats have a plan. The Republicans have a plan. The Republican plan is cheaper.

Well, I'm back to blogging...but on a 56k modem. After getting my cable modem hooked up again last Friday I've had nothing but trouble with it. Tonight I got the word that my problems are being caused by a weak signal -- they'll be out tomorrow to fix it. In the meantime, my Web surfing […]

Our friends the Mexicans: The San Diego Union-Tribune has a front page story today on evidence that the Mexican military may be hiring itself out as protection for drug smugglers. But retired Border Patrol agent Ron Sanders faces no such constraint. The former head of the Border Patrol's Tucson sector, which covers 281 miles of […]

🧵Please indulge me more on this topic: Yesterday's Bloomberg article misrepresenting Thune's comments on entitlement reform is part of a broader issue:
Most media coverage of Social Security, Medicare & unsustainable debt has long been narrative-driven and, yes, dishonest. (1/)

More broken accountability at the International Fact-Checking Network (@factchecknet) and the @Poynter Institute.
