The architects of the New World Order need your help to determine which nations are ideal candidates for action under “The Bush Doctrine” of pre-emptive action and liberation by force. Please take a moment...

I’m Melting!

I’m Melting!

Egads am I sick. Sicker today than I was over the weekend, when I thought I was getting better. Every joint aches. My head is throbbing. My nose is either too plugged up for...

The number of people dependent on news coverage aired by our local Hawaii Public Radio stations — from NPR to the CBC to the BBC — cledarly sees explosive growth during wartime. HPR started its “Spring...

It was nine years ago to the day that I asked Jen if she wouldn’t mind, terribly, perhaps maybe being my girlfriend. I’m still not sure why she said yes. (Maybe she thought it...

Wrong Number

Wrong Number

How’s this for a bizarre way to start off a week? My cell phone just rang with a call coming from the 732 area code (New Brunswick, New Jersey, according to this lookup site)....

Fair and Balanced?

Fair and Balanced?

FoxNews biased? No surprise, really, there. Still, makes this little piece of satire taste extra nice. [MeFi] Myself, I’m still a little irked at Joe Moore, who irks everyone, on some level, all the...

On the Homefront

Okay, given the war, my latest letter to the editor published in the Star-Bulletin seems a bit trivial. But I did write it three weeks ago, before the madness began. War talk, though, has...

Amy Partridge posts a brief account of being arrested and detained for over 20 hours for peacefully protesting in Chicago to the Chicago Indymedia site. “As with all of those around me that got...

Man, I should’ve joined that Saddam dead pool. Soon after watching the “live” address by Saddam Hussein following the unexpected target-of-opportunity strike on an Iraqi bunker (some 26 hours ago), I posted a theory...

Oh, god, how I love Aqua Teen Hunger Force. I don’t care if, technically, they’re an AOL property. That show’s a highlight of my week. It’s impossible to do anything else when it’s on…...

Your tax dollars at work. Does swapping “Freedom” for “French” defame the French, or equate the French with Freedom? And why would the French care if we took their name off a food product...

I’m Okay, Eh?

I’m Okay, Eh?

Forgive the USA Today link, but this piece — yet another article addressing how poorly America, if not Americans, are being received beyond our borders — had a quote that I relished. In Ugly sentiments sting...

Doing My Duty

Doing My Duty

During the (long) drive home yesterday, I was listening as usual to Marketplace on Hawaii Public Radio. During the show, former Maine Governor Angus King called in with his regular report from the road...

Check out the new review of the Dixie Grill Bar-B-Que & Crab Shack by my beautiful wife. She’s qualified, and is turning out to be a more reliable writer to boot. Hey, at least...

An important lesson to any student… beyond the fundamental, “plagiarism is bad.” And that is, “if you are going to plagiarize, try not to steal from an author who published the original work online.”...

I know an update to IMR is long overdue, but as I get settled in my new job, I come home more interested in sleep than anything else. (Once again having to deal with...

Web Reading

Last night, I lost a couple of hours I could have spent doing more productive things by reading every single page of Hank Mishkoff‘s site. It’s an exhaustive, personal account of his legal battle...
