Quote Of The Day

CEO of a Danish wind energy company being very uncouth: Ditlev Engel, president and chief executive of the Danish wind-energy company Vestas, said anecdotal evidence about birds being caught in turbine blades and other environmental horror stories do not usually hold up under scrutiny. “Do people think it’s better all those birds are breathing CO2?

It Usually Begins with Naked Tax Protesters

Since it appears that a whole lot of people are going to engaged in one of the two manifestations I previously identified as “Going Galt” this April 15th, perhaps it’s time for some additional perspective on the process.  Jerome Tuccille wrote It Usually Begins With Ayn Rand, which he followed with It Still Begins with [...]

Hope’n'Change, Jon Stewart Style

In fact, after Dick Cheney shot a friend in the face, on of my first thoughts was [...]
