Look Ma, No Keyboard!

Or Mouse.

This is the future of computer interfaces. I can picture it now: “We’ll, back in my day, sonny, we had this thing that had the alphabet, numbers, and some other symbols on it…”


Ever Feel like you are being judged?

Or perhaps that you are the punchline to some cruel joke?

Brother In-law: Jesse

Little known fact: Jesse is actually pronounced – Jyessaay. As in, “Get Jyessaay, the wagons gone in the ditch!”

Jesse and I

Obviously, too cool to smile…

HAHAHAHAHA! Never gets old to me.

But then I’m insane.

Romney’s 5 Step Plan To Prevent A Nuclear Iran: +Audio

From Governor Mitt Romney’s speech at the Seventh Annual Herzliya Conference.


Here’s the mega skinny:

    1. “First, we must continue [to] tighten economic sanctions”.
    2. “Second, we must impose diplomatic isolation of Iran’s Government”.
    3. “Third, Arab states must join this effort to prevent a nuclear Iran”.
    4. “Fourth, we must make it clear that while nuclearization may be a source of pride, it can also be a source of peril”.
    5. “Fifth, our strategy should be integrated into a broader approach to the broader Muslim world”.

      Death Tolls, Artistic Statements, and Paradox

      Recently a group of people put on a demonstration on the lawns of the University of Oregon. Surrounded by a sea of tiny white flags, a Sign reads:

      655,000 Iraqis have died.

      Each of the 112,000 white flags represent 6 Iraqi soldiers and civilians who have died in the War in Iraq.

      Read the Daily Emerald article. This number comes from the British medical journal Lancet’s study published last October. You can read more about it here. And here.

      Now, I just ran a couple of rough calculations for those who might be interested.

      With 4 years (roughly) minus about 150 days (generous – given the study showed up in early October 2006 and coalition forces entered Iraq March 20th 2003) you have 1,310 days of war. That comes to around 500 Iraqi casualties EVERY single day. That’s about 15,000 per month…

      To bounce off a point made here:

      So, when we hear the press toss realistic sounding numbers around like 1,600 or so per month – Oops! Somehow they missing 13,400 other deaths! Likewise – the occasional story of a tragedy here or there killing 30 somehow didn’t mention the 470 that died elsewhere…


      Something to keep in mind during your stroll to class.

      Given that WordPress.com finnally allowed people the abuility to upload audio clips I have a perfect test.
      Mark Steyn submitted a few really great songs for Bill Bennett’s “Sandy Berger Lies” contest – Here is the audio replayed from the Hugh Hewitt show:
