Atomic Angst



Phones and TV’s all over Hawaii flashed the alarm, and pure panic ensued. There’s a HUGE problem with this, and it wasn’t whoever “accidently” pushed the button…

Now… on the one hand, this was clearly an “accident,” or a “mistake,” or a colossal foul up. But what about the reaction? For nearly 45 minutes, many people in Hawaii thought they were about to get nuked. And what did they do about it?


The world is full of hypocrisy. So it’s no surprise that it’s the organizations and institutions which are most loud about being anti-hypocritical that are, on the balance, usually the most hypocritical of all.

Whether it’s Hollywood pretending to have not known that Harvey Weinstein was a dirt bag, media experts on travel telling us that Hati and Mali aren’t giant holes full of excrement or political supporters of a given politician pretending that their guy or gal is borderline perfect, it’s amazing – if nauseating – to watch.

And as the Nation pauses to remember Civil Rights icon Martin Luther King, Jr., we also watched as one of the most civil rights oriented organizations in the country completely ignored that legacy and its own rules in order to get what it wants.

Now watch as the supporters of that organizations make their excuses and rationalizations for what happened and how it “wasn’t”  a violation of their own rules and principles…


The US Supreme Court has agreed to hear a case out of South Dakota regarding the collection of sales taxes on internet purchases. However you feel about the issue, it’s likely to be settled this summer, and most likely in favor of the States…
