Media Burned by Fake Bhutto Facebook Page

Sweet. Will the MSM ever learn? I really wonder what is going on in Journalism schools these days. I’m quite certain that finding a story basically involves reading some other news Web sites, and then confirming that story involves reading the same story on some other news Web site. Check your sources people. (Keep in […]

Good News Always Seems to be ‘Unexpected’

I think I may start a new category for unexpected good news. The economy, consumer spending, how well a president gets along with another head of state… Just today, Bloomberg.com has a new one; Construction Spending in the U.S. Unexpectedly Rose. Read the entire article for the bad news that seems to overcome the good […]

French “Vandals” Fire Up 372 Cars

Nice. The article is written like this is a normal in France. Maybe it is. Cars are burned fairly regularly in France and the image of vehicles in flames in poor suburbs became symbolic of riots in 2005 when angry youths set fire to thousands of cars. There is usually an increase in the number […]

Loosing a Seat in Congress – What to do?

The Berkshire Eagle Online has a story today concerning the low population growth in the state of Massachusetts. As you may or may not know, a states representation in the U.S. House of Representatives is determined by the population of the state. “You are definitely going to lose a seat up there,” said Clark Bensen, […]

If You Can’t Afford It…

The Hartford Courant – along with a bunch of other MSM outlets – released an AP news story detailing how more and more people are falling behind on their credit card debt. The value of credit card accounts at least 30 days late jumped 26 percent to $17.3 billion in October from a year earlier […]

Huckabee’s Cross to Bear?

I’ve had enough of Howie Carr, Peggy Noonan and other columnists and radio personalities going absolutely nuts over – what they perceived after they were told about it – a floating cross during his Christmas TV spot.

Shepard Smith is Starting to Annoy Me

I like his style. I like his delivery. I generally like Fox News. But Shepard Smith is really starting to blow things out of proportion. I first noticed this during his Katrina coverage, there have been plenty of stories about how the news media – including Shep when he was in NOLA – was out […]

The Cost of Education

Walter Williams posted his column yesterday that dealt with the average cost paid – per year I assume – by public secondary education schools in the U.S. compared to other countries. He also looks quickly at the academic results posted by the U.S. Department of Education1. We’re not doing all that well; ranked 33rd in […]

What Happens When Less Seats are Available?

I fondly remember struggling through my first economics class in 1987 or 88. At the time, economics was a pretty difficult concept for me to grasp even though my dad was an economics major in college. The subject was not in the genes. But over time, I have been able to figure out some of […]
