Leaving

I once visited Salon, Pandagon, Media Matters, Crooks and Liars, Curve, and others.  Recently, it's just been “Pam's House Blend,” which I've used both badly and well as a diversion from the work that's always dogging me.  I admire Pam and many others here.  The reason that Pam's House Blend is last on my

Vietnam, Iraq I, Iraq II, and the History Channel

We lost in Vietnam. We won so cleanly in Iraq I; all those nifty bombs raining on buildings and a mere 148 U.S. deaths. Replays of those laser bombs hitting their targets were popular on the History Channel for years, but hey, hey, hey, where are those replays now? Iraq II is better named

My first diary entry!

I recently read a Rolling Stone article about the prognostications of Dr. James Lovelock, the Gaia Hypothesis guy.  He thinks that 6 billion of us will die in this century due to global warming's droughts, famines, and floods, reducing the human global population to .5 billion.  Lovelock says that the Sahara will spread
