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.

Romney is a Mormon. We are not. According to the liberal media, this is an unbridgeable gap, and evangelicals will never… Read More Evangelicals for Mitt?
Several major Iraqi Sunni insurgent groups recently offered an immediate halt to all attacks against Coalition forces IF the U.S. agrees to a timetable that would result in all foreign troops leaving Iraq by 2008. Sound like anyone else you’ve heard from recently? Maybe, but I’m not holding my breath waiting for the press to… Read More Insurgents: “Thanks for the idea”
