There are a number of interesting races worth following, starting the VA governor’s race between Terry McAuliffe and the Cooch. This should be …

A sad sign of the anti-science times

My parents were thoughtful. They dutifully stimulated my interest in reading and especially science and math, as a youngster. One of those gifts was a subscription to Popular Science magazine when I was barely ten-years-old. I can still smell the fresh glossy pages and feel the excitement of a future they implied; even the ads …

As we dutifully remember the events of Sep 11, 2001, it’s useful to tell the short story of Osama bin Laden and why he orchestrated the attack. That terrible day may seem fresh in our minds, but in the next Presidential election there will be people voting who don’t remember it. There’s a lot of …

  What X-phile wouldn’t have wanted it to be true?

There is no joy in Teaville, the mighty clown has struck out. See, a few days ago a rodeo clown donned a less than flattering Obama minstrel-like mask and proceeded to get the audience all riled up with the help of announcers at the idea of stomping him into the dirt. Teatards know whose fault …

As expected …

The job prospect I mentioned last week was looking great. It took place this last Wednesday at 10 AM, I showed up looking sharp, hair perfectly, freshly cut, wearing business casual as advised, a nice color coordinated sport jacket over new slacks and polished shoes which fit and accentuated my newly rebuilt, honed down, buffish …

I just saw exactly such a job with a great company, the physical site is very close by — I could almost walk to it.

Tale of Caution

As long as we’re talking about relationships, one of the things I look for these days, right off the bat in any prospective relationship, plutonic or otherwise, is a pattern of evasiveness. Can that woman answer a simple question, like ‘do you want to go out this weekend?’ Most girls can answer that, they may …
