Fearmonger in Chief

A co-worker pointed me to this colorful description of the “Protect America Act.”  I don’t endorse his partisan rhetoric, but it is nonetheless a good exposition of the foolishness of the PAA and the deplorable tactics employed by the current administration. While we’re on the topic: Why on earth is the Senate granting immunity to […]

If the Patriots Lose on Sunday

If the Patriots lose on Sunday, I will hold the Boston Globe accountable.  Some things should not be done!

Why I’m Not Voting for Hillary Clinton

I don’t think I’ve ever voted in a meaningful presidential primary. I’ve assumed that my primary vote wouldn’t matter unless I moved back to New Hampshire. But here I am, 10 days away from the primary, and the outcome is in question for both parties. I’m a registered Democrat these days (I know that’s news […]

Small Handful of Small States

Ned ranted about silly parts of the presidential election.  I agree with 90% of what he says, but that last 10% . . . I started to respond in a comment on his blog, but the comment got long-winded enough that I decided to post here instead.  “The whole focus on early primaries seems completely […]
