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.”
