Fake or not, this has got to be news.

Fake or not, this has got to be news.

I disagreed strongly with many of his suggestions, as did others in the Administration....I asked John for his resignation, which was given to me this morning. I thank John very much for his service. I will be naming a new National Security Advisor next week.”

Obviously, President Trump had a...

I.T. Rant

I.T. Rant

It’s less of a rant and more of a bite me. I’m a teacher and I was the technology coordinator of a high school for five years, up until about five years ago. I had passwords to everything and maintained the Active Directory, the network, whatever. We got a new I.T. director who holds educators in contempt. When he came on board, he stripped any of us with any useful ability of all access to...

Victor Davis Hanson: "Israel's Good and Bad New Realities"

Victor Davis Hanson: "Israel's Good and Bad New Realities"

I found this to be a cogent and helpful article that does much to offer an explanation of what President Trump and his ilk are about in the Middle East, agree with them or not. 93% of VDH’s articles are, in my opinion, by either omission or commission, vehicles to run cover for the Trump administration. Here’s one of his other 7%.

Holiday Traffic

Holiday Traffic

There's a peculiar vibe to holiday traffic. Hard to describe, but sort of prone to be dickish.

Gentrification of School Sports

Gentrification of School Sports

As parents have recognized that athletic success can burnish college applications, sports have come to resemble just another pre-professional program, with rising costs, hyper-specialization, and massive opportunity-hoarding among the privileged.

Meritocracy Is Killing High-School Sports

Athletics are supposed to be great equalizers in American life. But they’re being hijacked by the…

MacBook Air

MacBook Air

What’s a good middle-of-the-road used MacBook Air? I’m not a Mac guy. There were comments in the news about the new MB Airs being solid, glued-together monoliths that are no longer serviceable nor able to be upgraded. And there were expensive Retina screens. My daughter wants one and I wanna shop used.

Her primary use will be web-based college courses and watching The Office on Netflix. For...

This is interesting.

Looks like an anti-theft device. Does the cable stretched to the shift lever serve a purpose? Oakland. Jack London Square.
