Our decreasing safety
A look at the illusion of safety with respect to the damage we are doing to the world economy and the world's food supply. Are we safer when our actions are causing world starvation? What do you think? Here, I tell you what I think.
Editor's note: I read every one of his words. It is a point of view which should be read by those not offended by "strong language."
The Linux Project: Gentoo revisited
Another article in The Linux Project looks at Gentoo in a much gentler light. It is my apology to the Gentoo community for being so harsh about their distro in the first articles about it. It is also the confessions of a geek given the best toy he could ever get!

A farewell to kings...of sorts.
This is what happens when you get a calendar carrying the headline "The George W. Bush Out of Office Countdown" while hearing Rush playing in your head.

Anarchy in the USA
Proof that anarchists don't always wear torn clothes, safety pins, and far too much chrome-plated jewelery. Sometimes, they wear three-piece suits and flag pins on their lapels!
So what's with congress anyway?
Just another batch of questions for which I know there are no answers; another bit of trying to understand exactly why the Democratic members of congress aren't on the same page, or even in the same time period as the rest of America.
The gay life.
My analysis of the Larry Craig scandal looked at from the point of view of gay history.

Ye Olde Political Theatre
Cast ye now your weary eyes upon the pox of pernicious lies being spoken by the criers and scribes. What would Shakespeare say, t'were he alive today about the lie called "political theatre!"

At wit's end.
An expression of the frustration I feel as time continues to move forward without the criminals of the DUBYA regime being punished.
Tell your children, a paradigm of dope, part II
In this second article inspired by a late-night viewing of Reefer Madness, the musical, I analyze the do-gooder and how the actions of these defenders of the "right" always wind up causing grief for humanity.

Tell your children, a paradigm of dope.
This article is proof that inspiration can come from the strangest of places. It is the first in a three-part series of articles inspired by a late-night viewing of a popular cult classic film, Reefer Madness.

The Linux Project XII
The next to last article in The Linux Project. It is a review of some Linux distributions that weren't worthy of a full article in their own right. If they didn't make that cut, you can be sure they aren't for the newbie. One more article left in the series. YAY!

The Linux Project X
The tenth in The Linux Project...unfortunately included out of sequence. My bad on that. It's my review of two Linux distributions, both of which should be avoided by any newbie, or anyone with a slow computer and internet connection, or a quick temper: Lunar Linux and Gentoo Linux

The Linux Project XI
My review of Fedora, a the much hyped, yet completely disappointing open source operating system from Red Hat, a pay to use it *nix package.
Microsoft Vista: getting stuck with it.
My not so glowing review of Windows Vista, the operating system installed on my new laptop. In a nutshell, it's not all that Microsoft would have you think it is. Heavy on glitz and footprint, light on true functionality.

Saving face or saving lives.
Is it more important that America wins an illegal war to save face, or stop the violence and save American lives?
