I finally decided to catch up with the rest of the blog-o-nerds and figure out that whole Technorati thing. (Nerd is a good word. I love nerds.)
I just signed up and there is now a “love me” button at the bottom of my side-bar now. So, come on, now! Love me, [...]

Entry one.
Sorry, I’m not going to quote it, you have to read the whole thing.
Blog note: I have been working on the big post about the environment (which might end up a two parter), but I am not going to be able [...]

You might have noticed that I did not feature a Compassionate Cause this month.
This month, my extra giving was done to a person that I know instead of to a faceless organization. As important as it is to give to organizations that help those in need, we must not forget that we have friends [...]

I was not able to attend. I was hoping to go and blog about it, but that didn’t work out.
Here’s a quote from the article (emphasis mine):

In an interview before [...]

I plan to write up a review after I have used it a bit more. Feel free to leave your comments regarding how the clip-to-blog posts look.

The father of the kid who works at Channel 17 during She’s Right was there when I did my show on Crunchy Cons. After, he told me that he now has a label for himself – Crunchy Libertarian. I like it. Crunchy Cons tend to lean authoritarian, as much as I like [...]

Lately, these redbox DVD rental kiosks have been popping up in Hannaford stores around here. I am not sure where else they are, but according to the website, there are redbox locations across the country.

My last post seemed to spark a game of “Catch the Blogger in an Inconsistent Ideology” in the comments field. I thought it would be easier to address all of the issues in a new post, rather than in the comments.
First, I have to point out, you will not likely find me with an [...]

The other evening at dinner, I was complaining about yet another erosion of our freedom – I can’t recall which one; there are just so many these days – and my 8-year-old son said that laws that keep us safe are a good idea. In an effort to avoid the unpleasantness of a future [...]
