I am going to be downgrading to blog a bit, partly in order to emphasize writing that helps feed my family.
Still, I hope to get to that religion piece soon.
Also, a few misc items...
I highly recommend this review of 25 top stories from THE GLOBALIST, some of which are real eye-openers.
Author/inventor Wil McCarthy has just posted a a free, annotated, multimedia edition of Hacking Matter on his web page http://www.wilmccarthy.com/hm.htm This is one of the most innovative and fascinating ideas to come along in years. The topic if serveral novels and nowa bona fide patent.
It was reported this week that that $800 million in terrorism-preparedness aid to states will now be handed out based on risk-assessment rather than as it's currently being done, that is, based essentially on patronage.
The Times doesn't say until the 19th paragraph is that the new risked-based program represents only about 25 percent of the $3 billion in overall federal anti-terrorism grants. The rest is still just pork.
