Yesterday I signed off with: Tomorrow: I can see your house. Literally.
Well, it’s true, but it will have to wait until next year – a few more days for you to tidy up the lawn or shovel the driveway (curtains would be nice: I can see them from your street) – because today’s column […]
KEEPING MILLIONS UNEMPLOYED TO PUT ONE MAN OUT OF WORK
Did you see Joseph Stiglitz’s recent piece in Vanity Fair? In small part:
It’s no use pretending that what has obviously happened has not in fact happened. The upper 1 percent of Americans are now taking in nearly […]
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu offered this Christmas message. In the spirit of peace, it’s worth the minute to watch.
Thanks, Sid and Diane, for forwarding these four jaw-dropping minutes. It almost makes me wonder whether I am of the same species as these guys. Beautiful to watch.
Ralph: “Re yesterday’s column . . . you want liberals to appreciate what Obama has accomplished? If a Republican wins in 2012, everyone will suddenly have very clear hindsight.”
MITT AND THE VIETNAM VET
This clip – especially after Mitt leaves – is fair and frank. Two men, one […]
There are two kinds of liberals:

I got two things in the mail recently:
BEST XMAS CARD OF THE SEASON
In the sprit of Modern Family comes a card from my pals Sean and Randy, whose first child, Jesus (‘hay-ZEUS’), I met 13 years ago on his 9th birthday – which would make him just about to turn 22 […]
HOW TO MAKE A CAR
I know: they’re all socialists in Germany, with those awful six-week vacations, those dreadfully short work weeks, and that free medical care. Still, they seem to almost as far along economically as we are – well, for example, the jaw-dropping video of this German automobile factory. WOW. We […]
INCH BY SOLAR INCH . . .
A new dye may make solar cells 14% more efficient – here. The progress seems slow week to week, but in a few years we may look back and find that solar energy is highly competitive with its more problematic competitors.
. . . AND […]
MODERN FAMILY: IOWA STYLE
This three-minute clip of a 19-year-old testifying to the Iowa legislature has been widely viewed. It’s hard to watch and conclude his family don’t deserve the same rights as any other.
MODERN FAMILY: ABC STYLE
It’s won so many awards! Wednesdays at 9PM (8PM Central) on ABC. Hulu […]
ANOTHER MUST SEE, MUST SHARE
Paul Lerman: “Re Friday’s link to Forks Over Knives, here is another life-saver: nine minutes, called 23 and 1/2 hours: What is the single best thing we can do for our health? Great presentation and visual technique, kept me watching even after the point was made.”
Quote of the Day
Years ago, in the Carter term, a stockbroker tried to explain what Schlumberger did. 'It goes to 100,' the broker said, exaggerating only a little bit. 'Then it splits three-for-two and goes back to 100 again.'~GRANT'S Interest Rate Observer
