Rednecks for Obama

We live in Missouri, rural Missouri.  Down the road a piece, just over the hill and down through the holler, rests the country store.  The folks like to sit around the pot belly stove and yack a bit.  They only fire up the stove in the winter, but it is a comfort just to have […]

NBC Fails the Olympic Opening Ceremony

NBC has completely failed in their presentation of the opening ceremony of the 2008 Olympics in Beijing China. A masterfully choreographed 2,008 drummers, rhythmically moving in unison, were to cast a staggering effect of art in motion. NBC thinks they are at an NFL game and demonstrated how many cameras they have on the floor […]

Roswell Secrets sold to China

Son, Technology has seen exponential growth in the past fifty years. Proponents of conspiracy theories believe that the space ship that crashed in Roswell, New Mexico, in 1947 provided the stimulus.

The Enigma of Wal-Mart

Son, You and I are of different generations – how obvious is that. What is less obvious is what it means to be of different generations. I am a baby-boomer, you are a nut case child of the seventies. Such is the case with labels. But the cultural influences and differences of our lives are […]
