Single issue Ramble this time. I want to speak briefly about Memorial day which is today and I’d like you to really think about what I’m going to say to you. It’s always been a special day for me, because honoring our vets has always held special meaning for me; it’s a lesson my parents […]

I won’t try to speak for the guy in Florida arranging for the very public burning of the Koran. Nor, by the same token, will I attempt to speak for the  foreign-funded groups attempting to put a Mosque at or near Ground Zero. Nor, in fact will I try to defend either. They stand or […]

Welcome, one and all to the most intense nightly read anywhere on the ‘sphere: The BitsBlog Nightly Ramble. THINK THIS WILL HELP SALES? I do. So does Don Surber.

Nine Eleven was a day which made me feel humble but proud to be an American.   It was a day when off-duty firefighters went into the burning towers knowing full well they would never come out.   It was day when passengers of Flight 93 decided that that while they were doomed, they were free to […]
