Harrisburg, PA– As this is written, I’m at the TA in Harrisburg. I was supposed to be over by Albany by this time, but an equipment failure…. (flat tire) lost me four hours of drive time.  When things go mostly right, it’s easy to bitch about the small stuff. When there’s a bigtime fail… well, […]

TSA stuck on stupid, TSA chief John Pistole, from CNN: Well, I think the Israeli model, which a number of people have talked about, uses intelligence in a different way, profiling. And then if in terms of a pat-down, if they suspect you of something, you receive a very thorough pat-down there. That is top-notch […]

Paving with elephant dung, Shelby Steele, Wall Street Journal: How is it that Barack Obama could step into the presidency with an air of inevitability and then, in less than two years, find himself unwelcome at the campaign rallies of many of his fellow Democrats? The first answer is well-known: His policymaking has been grandiose, […]

I suppose, due to the increasing popularity of LinkedIn (there are now more than 75,000,000 business professionals), LinkedIn has now been targeted too! […]

Michelle is reporting: Well, well, well. Breaking news all over that the Dems have now abandoned Demon Pass. WaPo alert: House Democratic leaders say they will take a separate vote on the Senate health care bill, rejecting an earlier, much-criticized strategy that would have permitted them to “deem” the measure passed without an explicit vote.
