Vlad the Impaler: The real Dracula was absolutely vicious
Thu Oct 31, 2013
Interesting article but a little skewed and leaves out some relevant points. During the early Middle Ages, many of the Roman emperors (i.e. the emperors in Constantinople) cultivated a culture of fear by doing horrific things to any armies that attempted to invade. Because of the Empire's prestige, …
Six burning questions on Obama's Syria decision
Sun Sep 1, 2013
In the larger picture this is a positive sign and reminds me why I voted for Barry. The larger picture which is continually missed is that the framers of the constitution NEVER intended the presidency to be able to start wars the way the office can today. They would be horrified by what we do now. T …
Learning cursive writing: Is it worthwhile or a waste of time?
Fri Aug 30, 2013
It's certainly true that cursive is on its way out but it still has limited use. It is at least important that any educated person should be able to read it until such time as it is truly obsolete. It's rather scary that someone growing up in this country would be unable to read a handwritten letter …
This just doesn't fly: Some airline pilots barely make living wage
Wed Aug 28, 2013
While it does seem a lot of pilots are getting short-changed, I think some of the analysis this article is doing is gratuitously overstating the concern. "Time away from family" is not a truly reasonable way to measure hours worked. Many jobs require business trips. And you can even take that a step …
Majority of Americans support 'Stand Your Ground' laws: poll
Fri Aug 2, 2013
This is a tough one. I agree with the principle of the Stand-Your-Ground laws: That you should not have to run away if somebody threatens your life. We all have the inherent right to say "You cannot take what is mine and expect me not to fight back." But this is a case where it is sometimes difficul …
Feds will now help resolve debt collection complaints
Wed Jul 10, 2013
Americans have long forgotten how the system is supposed to work. Europe used to be full of debtors prisons and even the colonies had this as well. One of the fundamental revolutions in consumer protection was the recognition that lending is only ethical if the lender takes as much risk as the borro …
For a job after graduation, major in these, not those

First 3-D-printed gun fired, but its digital blueprints make bigger bang
Mon May 6, 2013
This should not come as a surprise to anyone but it should make everyone think carefully. The presumption with respect to guns, WMDs, nuclear proliferation, etc. is usually that the long-term solution for weapons being used by criminals is to limit access to these weapons. The reality is that, in th …
'Like a drug': Payday loan users hooked on quick-cash cycle
Sat May 11, 2013
These sleazy lenders are not the problem. There will always be people who are willing to do corrupt things and thinking of them as the problem is like blaming the weather for the damage that storms cause.
As home births rise, pediatricians group sets new guidelines
Sun Apr 28, 2013
I used to think that any woman who doesn't want to deliver in the hospital is completely stupid. After all, giving birth is one of the most dangerous things that can happen to a mother and her child. Who in their right mind would think that being far from emergency care by the experts would be a goo …
