Lady Gaga to Headline Super Bowl Halftime Show
Thu Sep 29, 2016
While I like Lady Gaga and respect her talent, I don't think she is a very good choice for the Super Bowl. In fact, must Super Bowl halftime show music acts don't fit very well with football (too pop-centric) and generally are boring (downright sucky at times). Besides, everybody knows that halftime …
Elon Musk Makes His Case for Colonizing Mars
Tue Sep 27, 2016
Until the radiation problem is solved in such a way that the human body is protected and the protection mechanisms are practical and 100% reliable, talking about a manned mission to Mars is nonsense. With current technology, a human going to Mars would incur radiation exposure sufficient to impair c …
Hubble Finds 'Surprising' Activity on Jupiter's Moon Europa
Mon Sep 26, 2016
Hubble is still the most awesome astronomical device ever built. Hope it keeps going, since we no longer have the ability to service it. Given how cold Europa is, what kind of forces would cause liquid water to jet over 100 miles high?
Arnold Palmer, the Everyman 'King' of Golf, Dies at 87
Sun Sep 25, 2016
Truly one of a kind. He lived well and left the world better than he found it. Fore!
Obama Dedicates Smithsonian's 'Glorious' New African-American Museum
Sat Sep 24, 2016
I'm not sure why the dedication of a new museum brings out such vitriol in some posters. And I'm not even an Obama supporter! The Smithsonian institutions are some of the finest museums in the world. The artifacts they have are extraordinary, the research their historians perform is first-rate, and …
Man Crawls to Safety 3 Days After Crash That Killed Girlfriend
Fri Sep 23, 2016
A terrible tragedy to be sure, but the circumstances of the accident don't seem to make sense. If he looked away for a second, and then had to apply the brakes, that implies the cruise control was on. Why did he suddenly need to brake, instead of simply steer the vehicle? Was there an animal on …
Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel Announces 3-Part Plan to 'Reverse Tide of Violence'
Thu Sep 22, 2016
Rahm's plan won't work. It is dependent upon new taxation, in a city that is already taxed to the limit. More cops means more taxes. Going after gun businesses means less tax revenue if they are forced to close (or alternatively, there are higher taxes on gun sales which depresses local gun sales an …
Terence Crutcher Shooting: Tulsa County District Attorney Charges Officer Shelby With Manslaughter
Thu Sep 22, 2016
In reply to: Beasy45 #181 Most police departments have some kind of published use of force policy, use of force matrix, or use of force continuuum that explains the circumstances of when increasing use of force, up to deadly force, is justified. I suggest you start there, by Googling those te …
Donald Trump Finally Admits President Obama Born in U.S.
Fri Sep 16, 2016
I don't think Trump necessarily needs to apologize to the President, since he finally came around to agreeing over his U.S. birth. For Trump to come out and say it, it pretty much means the birthers have lost their last major supporter. Perhaps Obama should thank Trump for fully-vetting th …
White House Announces Lifting Trade Sanctions on Myanmar During Suu Kyi Visit
Wed Sep 14, 2016
I applaud this action by President Obama. The steps Myanmar has taken in the past 6 years have been significant. They have made major improvements in human rights, in establishing democratic institutions, and liberalizing the economy and avenues for foreign investment. They may not be "perfect" in e …
