Last Thursday, I attended part of the Arizona state senate session in the capitol complex. My dad teaches history and travels the country as an evangelist during the summer. He writes letters to the editor, applicable to certain states/cities, and sends them to various newspapers across the country as a way to have a public… Read More Arizona State Senate
Every Tuesday Stephen heads downtown to the office of the Greater Phoenix Economic Council (GPEC). GPEC is one of GreenLoop’s clients, and Stephen is scheduled to manage their IT needs on a weekly basis, so he’s been able to get to know the GPEC employees. When GPEC announced its annual dinner, GreenLoop offered to pay… Read More Formal Dinner
Jury Duty. Yes, I was summoned for jury duty for the first time in my life. No, I did not have to report to the courthouse. I decided to skip the postponement option for two reasons. First, if selected, it would be a great learning experience and allow me to fulfill my civic duty like… Read More A Narrow Escape 🙂
As you can probably tell from the lack of blog posts recently, Stephen and I had our first week of work last week. We were so excited to start, but what a week we had! Crossroad held evangelistic services Sunday through Wednesday with Evangelist Morris Gleiser. We were privileged to keep Evang. Morris and his… Read More Beginning Our Employed Life
Presidential hopeful Senator John McCain’s “commencement speech”:http://mccain.senate.gov/index.cfm?fuseaction=NewsCenter.ViewSpeech&Content_id=1732 at Liberty University was pretty good–certainly better than anyone who was around during the 2000 election primaries would have had any reason to guess at the time.
Still at the airport . . . but I came across another great article related to “my post”::http://themoodysideoflife.com/component/option,com_jd-wp/Itemid,36/p,48/ from the other day. David Cloud, although just a high school economics teacher (in Pendleton, Indiana–only about 20 mi. from my hometown) writes as clearly and persuasively on the topic as anyone I’ve seen. Check it out… Read More More on the “gas crisis”
Glenn Reynolds “argues”:http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/12132529/#060410 (mostly tongue-in-cheek) that the quickest way to solve the illegal immigration problem is to just annex Mexico. His real point, though is that the long-term solution to the dilemma is to insist that our neighbor to the south adopt serious democratic and economic reforms; i.e. to become more American. He’s probably right.… Read More Annex Mexico?
Christopher Hitchens (one of the panel members in the Orwell post below) “debunks”:http://www.slate.com/id/2139609/ one of the most persistent myths remaining from the runup to war in Iraq. (via “Instapundit”:http://instapundit.com/archives/029633.php) The evidence *still* points to the fact that Saddam sought yellowcake from Niger. Of course, the world’s various intelligence services have been saying so all along,… Read More Sixteen words
I’m a little late to find out, but there’s some good economic news coming from “my home state”:http://www.nationalreview.com/nrof_comment/swanson200603280801.asp for once. Based on what I’ve seen and read, Governor Mitch Daniels has far exceeded my expectations so far. I didn’t follow the 2004 Indiana governor’s race very closely since I’m not living in the state at… Read More Indiana on the Move
