10/31 News

October 31, 2006

In checking out todays news, I first discovered that, yesterday, Kate Phillips wrote a very pointed article espousing the virtues of Nancy Pelosi. Now, I can actually agree with some of the charges leveled against Republicans—individual Republicans. But, what I find interesting is the political gamesmanship the Democrats accuse the Republicans of that they too […]

The Any Soldier Video

October 31, 2006

I began the creation of this video while on disability back in 2005. I’d been sendinng support boxes to several guys and gals for about 6 months at the time. And, I got bored and decided to try out a computer movie making program. It was created as an encouragement to the folks at Any […]

Valour-IT

October 31, 2006

Today, after work, I was checking my favorite MilBlog sites and found the kick off notices for the Valour-IT projcet. Bloggers who have served in the various services are teaming up to raise money in a military kind of friendly rivalry for Valour-IT. (…by the way that stands for Voice-Activated Laptops for OUR Injured Troops…) […]

Some Laughs And Some News

October 31, 2006

First, there was this from Mallar Fillmore Duncan Hunter (R-Calif) announced he is going to run for President. Favored to win his house re-election campaign in San Diego, Duncan could also end up losing his chairmanship of the Armed Services Committee in this year’s election. He’s helped block creation of a National Intelligence Director, introduced […]

News Bites 10/30 am

October 30, 2006

Well, this morning, before leaving work, I wandered around the net and camped out at Yahoo for a bit to check on the news. A couple of things caught my eye. A Pakistani “anti-terrorist” attack may cause more problems than it solves, based on this report. Admittedly, given the track record, I would not be […]

Who Really Controls The Internet?

October 30, 2006

We need to take a serious look at who has how much influence via the internet. I’ve been watching the news for just the last couple weeks, and I’ve actually become concerned for conservatives. Supposedly, evangelical Christians compose the majority of the Right wing. True or not, for the sake of discussion, we’ll accept it […]

Team MVPs

October 29, 2006

One of my goals when I first started coaching was to help the kids learn to honor each other. So, I came up with season awards. Yeah, I know, every coach does this. And usually, it’s a pretty big list so that everyone gets an award. But that’s not what I did. I don’t believe […]

Interesting Commentaries…

October 29, 2006

I finally got back to check in at A Soldier’s Perspective. I found his break down of “A State of Denial” by Bob Woodward to be fascinating. I think this is the best quote from the article: Woodward’s book is a contradictory in terms. He gives example of example of why Bush had every right […]

NHL Rookie Issues

October 29, 2006

There are limits on how long a player can play before he loses his eligibility to play in juniors. And, there should be limits. You don’t want NHL veterans going back to overrun everybody in juniors. That would not be cool. The problem is there are some very good junior players getting drafted these days. […]

Today’s News! (…for once…)

October 28, 2006

Of course, the BIG sports news of the day: Cardinals win the World Series after 24 years.(…I’m not a baseball fan…sorry…but it was definitely worth mentioning….being an old St. Louis bot..seriously…grew up in West County St. Louis…) GO BIRDS! In a piece of science news, the Hubble telescope is basically dying. The questions is should […]
