The only thing that I can even begin to say about this is that it provides additional proof that the problem is not the people, it’s the system.Continue reading
The anthropological world was stunned when the recent genome study of the 24,000-year-old remains of a small Siberian boy revealed that the child was both part-Western European and modern Native American. This turns on its head the long-held notion that those who first settled the Americas (themselves descendants of Siberian populations) were related to East Asians, as well as raising questions as to when … Continue reading

Leaders lead, tyrants rule and servants serve. When did we lose sight of the distinction?
It starts when they do things for your own good — and ends when you are no longer relevant.
It’s not the Democrats and it’s not the Republicans. It’s what our government as a whole has become.
A disturbing number of individuals, small businesses, large corporations and governments are actively impeding business, stifling communication, irritating their customers and turning away prospects. They are doing this with the best of intentions, and often at considerable investment. They don’t know any better — but they have sucky Websites! Don’t be one of ‘them!’ As a broad rule, 70-80% of a Website’s design should … Continue reading

I’m really tired of hearing gun-grabbers preach about the idyllic, peaceful, civilized and Gun Free, Great Britain.
Please don’t tell me to just stop listening, because they seem to be everywhere and they won’t shut up!
Ego, conceit and confidence all came up in a recent conversation with a comrade in arms and it ended with the sort of question only a good friend can gracefully ask. Before he asked, however, he requested that I think long and hard, and be completely honest. Both of these are equally uncomfortable and the latter downright unnatural, but I said I’d try. (Which … Continue reading

Fact: Professional athletes, Olympians, and college athletes and almost all civil servants are required to take, and pass any number of random drug tests. This is done for two primary reasons.

How should we deal with an organized effort to inflict these Million economic cuts, when all it takes to inflict one is a circuit board and battery taped to an empty Propane can, or even a simple paper bag left in an ‘inappropriate’ place?
One plane crash doesn’t change the fact that flying is statistically the safest way to travel.
Likewise, One crazy person, killing Twenty Six people in a school doesn’t change the fact that our primary and secondary schools remain statistically, the safest place for your child to be.
I believe that the concept of a career politician would have the founders spinning in their graves.
Perhaps it’s time that we started seriously considering Congressional Term Limits.

Annie Wells Ingram As a child I only remember a few things that were classified as ‘absolutely forbidden’ to touch, get close to, or even vaguely think about. Aside from the obvious; buttons, levers and stuff in the car, truck or on power tools, daddy’s guns, and the oil furnace, there was a special category — grandma’s paring knife. Long after I was old … Continue reading

NOTE:The original Web Safe color concept was intended for those with 16 bit displays, limited to only 256 colors.
While there are still a few users out there in that category they represent fewer than 2% of the total clients. (Mostly non-U.S. schools from which most companies do not or should not solicit nor encourage traffic.) Today, almost any color (matters of taste aside) will display properly.
For 100% certainty, however, Websafe colors always work.
