It’s gone too far. It’s gone far too freakin’ far. George Will blasts the Reagan-philes in his usual erudite way. Mind you, I think pretty highly of Reagan–in my thought process that politicians should have a few simple, core beliefs that they govern from and never but never stray–but talk of putting a “Reagan Memorial”… Continue reading Enough with Reagan-philia!
All I can do is offer a link to this aerospace nuttiness and cry.
What the … [expletive deleted–this is a family site]. JPL’s new “neatness” policy has to be the biggest load of crap I’ve heard from NASA in ages. I mean, really. Engineers are more productive in messy environments. Why? They aren’t spending time cleaning up all the [-ed-] that Pointy Haired Bosses give to them! GAOHGOQIHEGOPQIE:OQHGOQIH!… Continue reading Faster…Cheaper…NEATER?!
Now, I’m not saying that the guys from Wayner are all dopes, but evidently one of their faculty was. Oops.
We may not need education in Alabama, but, by God, we need a new danged highway. Yes, this will greatly benefit West Alabama. This is near and dear to me–my family lives in WAla. But seriously, with our schools shot to hell and back, do we need to spend $1.5B to build a highway? Where… Continue reading We Don’t Need No Education
Well, it’s 40 years since Vostok I, and 20 years since STS-1. To quote my friend Daniel: “Khruschev to Kennedy in 1961: ‘All your launchers are belongink to us.‘ ” -roflmaowtime-

I have been a significant participant–my nick is TOTKChief. It’s a pretty interesting read, really–though the comments… Continue reading Back Off!
Well, I watched a little TV last night at Ralph’s mom’s apartment [she winters in Florida and summers in Chicago, which is probably a good idea, and she doesn’t come back to Chicago until mid-April, so I’m staying there], and then I woke up around 9:45 last night. I probably woke myself up snoring. =)… Continue reading Sleep…Perchance to Dream
I’ve just tried to calculate the number of hours between the present and my last decent sleep, but it’s not happening. =) Left Huntsvegas around 11:30 last night. Turned back at midnight when I realized I’d left my wallet. Got back on the road again for good around 1:00 a.m. Got to Nashville’s airport around… Continue reading Safe is the Wayward Traveler
Just got off the phone with the folks. Glad to hear that Mom sounds just a little stronger than before. Also good to hear that her left eye is tracking a little better, and that surgery is possible to rejuvenate the nerves and such should the need arise. She may always have double vision in… Continue reading Home, Hearth, and Happiness
