Turn Violent Video Games into Free Money From Dumb People »

Southington, Connecticut, thinks they have a solution to violence. They’re offering a $25 gift card for every violent video game that’s turned in. The games will be incinerated, probably just with matches, although it would be much cooler if they destroyed them with a flamethrower or a BFG. They don’t define what makes a game […]

Keep The Bird »

I like PBS. I watched Cosmos as a youngster and it filled me with wonder and helped fuel my love of science. I thought Julia Child was a hoot, and she helped inspire my love of cooking. Sesame Street wasn’t around when I was a kid, but my kids loved it and I enjoyed watching […]

Beware of Mark Bittman and People Like Him »

It’s disheartening to see how many Americans United Statists think this is […]

It’s a shame I left within seconds because you did something stupid. Most of these tricks have been around long enough that they’ve been discussed to death, […]

Mass Transit Musings »

Three governors have wisely turned down federal money for High Speed Rail projects.  They know accepting it will cost them billions, and probably tens of billions, in cost overruns for a project that will create enormous, but speedy, white elephants. Progressives (i.e. socialists)  all pissy about these decisions.  But then, the left has always been […]
