Extinction, Greed & The Need for Regulation

May 30th, 2010 · 1 Comment

As I read the news concerning the greatest oil disaster in the history of the United States (of the world?), I cannot help but wonder if British Petroleum has guaranteed the next major extinction. No doubt some of you will write me off for that comment and move on, thinking what I have to say […]

How Stupid Are We?

December 22nd, 2008 · 2 Comments

Is it me, or are Americans becoming increasingly stupider as time goes by? We’re told that banks and mortgage companies made a bunch of stupid mistakes which resulted in an economic meltdown.  So to save us from the economic meltdown, we were told we have to give $700 billion to the same banks that put […]

The Nose On Your Face

February 11th, 2005 · 2 Comments

An article at Fact-esque reminds me of the numerous times I’ve written about the harm that comes from too-powerful Corporations. Many people don’t realize this — many others think it’s totally the right thing — but Corporations have more rights in America than human beings.

December 15th, 2004 · No Comments

Constitutional Law mid-term today; no time for serious blogging. But I ran across an interesting blog a couple days ago after finding it on What It Is Today, a blog owned by an unnamed female newswriter who has a link to my blog. (I’ve now returned the favor.) A Theory of Power belongs to Jeff […]

Sitting around waiting for the rest of the class to “get” quadratic equations, sines or cosines, and other mathematical […]

Sitting Ducks

August 5th, 2004 · No Comments

I meant to get to this story several days ago, but when you start writing for a living, blogging suddenly becomes less “fun” and starts to feel like “oh-no,-more-writing?!” Nevertheless, the “interesting” juxtaposition of stories in the San Francisco Chronicle on my birthday (July 31) begs for me to at least bring it to your […]

Tag, You’re It!

One of our more troubled readers — no longer with us because he’s off trying to start his own blog full of panache and style, if not content — frequently worries about the location of “the semen-stained dress.” Thanks to Wal-Mart, we’ll soon never lose another dress…or the person who wears it.

The President and Vice-President of the United States go to the Supreme Court today to see if they can withhold information from the American people. At issue is whether oil companies can write the United States Energy Policy without fear that we, the people, will find out how the government and legal system are being […]

Two for One: Saving Social Security & the War

April 24th, 2004 · 3 Comments

The War President has a problem. It’s not likely to be one that will cause him to lose his political office, but it could — and it’s a serious problem nonetheless.
