I’m so relieved Katrina didn’t decimate New Orleans as the media had led us to believe it inevitably would. The destruction was bad, but not as bad as the media outlets had predicted. My wife has family who live near New Orleans, so it was a relief to learn the hurricane weakened when it hit […]

What Powers You Ask?

I didn’t now this, but Pat Robertson has superpowers. Yup, according to CBN he is able to leg press 2,000 lb. with the greatest of ease.

The Internets: A Cure for the Productive

When you comment from now on, you’ll have to type in a word that appears on your screen to log-in. My apologies to the handful of people that comment here.

Digital Divide

By now everyone’s heard about the stampede in Richmond over 1,000 Apple iBook laptops. Apparently, over 12,000 people showed up, and instead of doing something logical like handing out claim tickets to the first 1,000 people, the sale turned into a riot. Go here to see a slide show of the event. I had heard […]
