Tech journalist since the dark ages. Windows Secrets, LangaList newsletter, Windows Magazine (NetGuide, Home PC), Byte, Popular Computing, yadda yadda yadda. Google me, if it matters.

This feed is mostly personal interest; it's NOT my professional writing. There's tech here, yes, but also lots of general science and some politics and weird humor thrown in.

Can anyone give me a working example of the word 'hypocrite?'

Never mind. I found some in the news.

Oregon Tea Party founder hasn't paid his federally insured mortgage in three years.

Idaho tea party candidate has 10 kids on Medicaid but hates government.

The redder the state, the more that state gets from the government than it gives.

And yes, the reddest states are the GOP strongholds
where the teabaggers complain most about "gummint giveaways."
