I miss my wife

Tuesday night, I stood backstage, waiting for The Finale to begin. Susan and Bob were saying final goodbyes on stage as Pippin and Catherine. I was alone.

Poor Dr. Sami Solanki.  He and his colleagues at the Institute for Astronomy in Zurich have discovered that sun spot activity–which has been measured since 1610 and can be reliable tracked for a thousand years before that–has a powerful influence on the earth’s temperatures. Moreover, the sun, they’ve found, has been more active in the…

Weather and Home Improvement

If you’ve come here in the past few days, you’ve noticed that my site’s been down. There are a couple of reasons: 1. I spent 24 out of 38 hours working in my family room (and, no, it wasn’t a Godfather maration). I painted, ripped out the carpet, and put in laminate flooring that looks…

What to Make of the Jobs Report

The good news is that the economy added 112,000 new jobs in June.  The bad news is that that figure is less than half of what economists expected.  More bad: manufacturing lost jobs.

Iraqis are flocking to stores to buy a dancing Saddam doll. Now I know what to get the kids for Christmas. Not too long ago, such a novelty would have earned torturous death for its owner. Today, stores can’t keep the things on the shelves. This is the best proof in a long time that…
