Zimbabwe

You know, we do things to serve others, donate, etc. But stuff like this just makes me feel helpless. http://www.nytimes.com/2008/12/12/world/africa/12cholera.html?_r=1&th&emc=th

Progress on the Vue book

I’m on chapter ten now. This is a pretty interesting experience. I’m huge on double checking, and have found that I know less than I thought I did. In the process the coolest ideas are coming to mind. Unfortunately, I have no time for them just yet, but they may ...

Book contract

The papers have been signed, so now I can let loose. I have a publisher! I’m writing a book! In fact, I am so busy writing this book that I barely have time to say more than that. I only have about six more weeks to finish it. My involvement ...

Lost respect

I have to say that Lance Armstrong used to be a minor hero of mine. But the recent ads for an energy supplement that have been popping up everywhere and are now spamming my inbox has made me lose a lot of respect. Well, is failure in marriage was also ...

The election

I really don’t know who to vote for. At this point, I disagree with both candidates so much that I don’t feel I can in good conscience vote for either of them. On the other hand, both have things I agree with. I’ll have to deal with one of them, ...
