God bless the veterans of the Pearl Harbor attack and those who were killed on that day 72 years ago today, as well as all those whose subsequent sacrifices led America to ultimate victory. Here are some tweets I ran across this morning about the attack and the anniversary: Dec. 7, 1941: A date which […]

Many of the people interviewed here say they voted for Obama, so it’s hard to feel sorry for them, but at the same time it’s amazing to watch expectations in 2008 vs. realities in 2013: Students at Bowie State University assailed the Affordable Care Act (ACA) on Thursday after administrators cancelled a low cost school-wide […]

This guy needs a hobby: For about 250 years, our species has been known as Homo sapiens, a scientific name in Latin that means “wise man.” Given the havoc humans are wreaking on natural systems, putting ourselves and so many other living things in peril, we don’t deserve this name, contends Julian Cribb, an Australian […]
