Careful, or somebody might donate it to a medical school.

The way things are going, it's probable that small rains, without snowpack, might actually make things worse somehow. What's the science on this, I wonder?

Increased hydraulic pressure causes the streams to empty out more quickly, leaving less available than before the sprinkle-storms.

The fact is, that ain't even Obama up there yet. Not really. One of the final executive orders of Bushco essentially allows control of the "transition" until later in February.

Hence, perhaps, the continuing tax-cut/bribery and omnipresent missile pedlars.

The Sun's Deadly Rays

Now California enters drought mode, no real rain for years, and today we get a brief sprinkle. So why does everybody still seem so happy when the sun -- now dangerously into the ultraviolet -- pokes back through the clouds? No doubt the weathermen will be crowing happily about our glorious weather, ...

Wikipedia, is by definition, faulty. Always add to it when visiting. Even the barest fact can stand a rewrite, ad infinitum. The best entries are those on the edges of science, where nothing can yet be verified. Although I still can't stand to see the Lunar Maria referred to as infilled craters, or ...

The way the chief executive gets set up, there's not a whole lot of leeway from the previous administration. As we saw last week, the Raytheon lobbyists still follow the president around wherever he goes. Doubtless, the high tech weapons manufacturers constitute a technology advisory commitee left o...

That one's getting a lot of views. Might be time for an infringement check.

Look, You Don't Have to be from Harvard to Figure This

Okay, to possibly help clarify that last post of gobbledygook -- here's a link to a recent Obama order -- http://tinyurl.com/dzzrqu As you can plainly see, Barack here revokes a W. order, which had in turn revoked an earlier Reagan-issued order. Now, the way it appears to me, any Clinton orders that...

Laststraw Grasping Options

The Obama presidential white house website is showing some recent action, including the first executive order. It worth looking at; then try tracing back the executive orders of the previous administration. Bush superceded and nullified a number of different aspects of the oval office, so one hopes ...

Youtube's NIN Film Festival

For anybody looking out for the latest, the newest thing out there, the Nine Inch Nails Film Festival could be right up your tree. It's interesting here because, as part of the rules, the "Ghosts" album is all fair play for whomever (or "what"-ever, in the case of some of the str...

Spirit Fizzles Bigtime -- Too Damp to Spark Up?

I missed The Spirit. Still want to see it too. Did you hear that it died the death? Couldn't even swing half its budget. And it was a fairly low budget, at that. Now it's in the red and a possible choice for the dvd art movie circuit. No surprise? Well, it might have been a wonder if Miller had turn...

Original Opening Day for New Star Trek

If Star Trek had come out last month, as planned, it would have been in the following box office environment: http://www.boxofficemojo.com/weekend/chart/?yr=2008&wknd=52&p=.htm My opinion is; it may have had some trouble reaching number one that weekend. Too much great stuff was out at that ...

Trek was Always There for You

I remember seeing *one* episode, back in the sixties as a guest of somebody whose kids watched the show avidly. It definitely caused me to plead for more; until, soon after, tv got sworn off in our family until the mid-seventies. But that wasn't all. While staying back east for a year in 1973, after...
