Economics - Let’s Give The Profession a D+

The profession of economics has assumed the importance of a state religion, with its practitioners assuming the role of high priests, at least with regard to public policies.  Yet for a discipline that uses mathematics, it is surprisingly weak when it comes to predictions.  Still, listen to any debate on tax reform, health care or any other policy question and economics will creep in.…

I am a great photographer ... borderline photographic artist. OK, NOT borderline

I am a great photographer, not to brag. Is what it is, isn't it. Kitty says HI. I am also a cat whisperer.

But that's not what this is about. 

In less than an hour I/we are heading back to the lake captured expertly below by moi, and I'm excited.

In my youth, gone for over four decades, the opportunity to destroy my life forever and end up lost to the world presented itself repeatedly, cloaked in the hip buzz of the excitement of being a professional musician.

I had the chops then to be presented with a couple invitations that could have led to fame and fortune, but there was an undercurrent of darkness that terrified me. I've been around the use of opioids and have seen persons I knew and liked lose themselves. I saw…

Everything You Know About Belly-Button Lint is Wrong

I’ve noticed a trend recently.  The East Coast newspapers I read, such as The New York Times and The Boston Globe, have taken to lecturing ordinary schmoes like me on a regular basis that things we believe to be self-evidently true are in fact false–when you look at them in the sort of nuanced, sophisticated way that writers for these rags are capable of.



“I can’t believe I’ve been so stupid all these years!”

French Election Bears Little Comparison to America: Actual People Elect Their President

There’s continuing mythology that, in light of Brexit and America’s election, the world will soon be dominated by the political right-wing.

Fear was stoked in France on Sunday due to the burgeoning strength of National Front candidate Marine Le Pen, runner-up in a large presidential field, only narrowly behind centrist Emmanuel Macron (En…

As Folks Might Say in Texas, Coulter is All Hat and No Cattle

My Donald Trump Nightmare

It seems as if I wake up almost every night, and there is some vision of Donald Trump inside my head as I slowly struggle to decide whether to go to the bathroom or not.  And in the process of waking up, I look at my mental image of this toad residing in the Oval Office, I find myself being more than slightly disgusted. How could I have the POTUS perpetually taking up part of my mind like this? What kind of disgusting…

NEWARK, Delaware. When Mahlon Grenier got the call telling him he was the winner of the American Philosophical Society’s undergraduate essay prize, he says he was as surprised as the next fellow. “In my apartment the next fellow is my roommate, and he didn’t think it was that big a deal,” says Grenier.



“In a wet t-shirt contest, the wetness of the shirt is more important than the wetness of the bodacious body.”

 

The distinction comes with a…

Trump Wants to Put Humans on Mars in Three Years

Trump Wants to Put Humans on Mars in Three Years:  Unsatisfied with NASA's current plans to get humans on the Red Planet sometime in the 2030s, President Trump announced he wants people on Mars by the end of his first term, in three-and-a-half years.  Wonder if Trump realizes that Mars is known as the “Red Planet,” not the “Orange Planet?”  The way things are going, Trump would spend billions of our tax dollars sending people to Mars and as soon as they land,…
