The End of Big Oil and the Middle East Strangle

I’ve heard it said that the very last stage coach company in the world built the best damn coach around but the end of the horse and stage coach was inevitable with the invention of the combustion engine. Isn’t it ironic that the hay that once fed horses to pull that same stage coach […]

Buried In Junk Mail

I get a lot of junk mail. Almost 140 pieces last month alone. I thought spam was supposed to get rid of junk mail. Instead, I also get about 350 pieces of e-mail spam a month in addition to the junk mail I get in my physical box. Most of the spam gets caught in […]

First, let me say that the title to this post is imperfect, but it’s the best I could do. Clearly, not all ‘conservativ es’ decry the fact that the Earth’s climate is changing, or that it is because of human activity that those changes are occurring.
