How Broadcast TV is Like a Bus

[Free-to-air TV is] kind of like the horse, you know, the horse was good until we had the car…The age of broadcast TV will probably last until 2030. -Netflix CEO Reed Hastings, speaking in Mexico City on Monday while downplaying the significance of Nielsen rating Netflix and Amazon (something I’m not sure how it would […]

Bruce et al v. Gore and Al Jazeera: Why the sale of Current is undeniably a good thing for any neutral observer

Imagine my surprise when I checked Twitter last night to find that “Al Gore” was trending, considering I happen to follow him and he hadn’t really tweeted all day. Then imagine my surprise to click it and find the headline: Al-Jazeera in talks to buy Current TV “Huh”, I think. “That’s interesting, and makes a […]

You know what just occured to me?

Hey… I’m on Twitter now… a new channel to communicate with me… and a public one at that… I’m tempted to try and start up the global warming debate again I tried to start back in April, and put some of the research pressure off of me. Delusion of grandeur, or could I actually get […]

I posted a strip I never should have, so I have two strips redundant with it.

(From Sandsday. Click for full-sized going around in circles.) EDIT: I forgot to remove this post when I actually DID post the strip before leaving earlier today. I’m spending the weekend in the Portland area for a wedding. I may have street signs NEXT weekend. But not as many as I would have otherwise hoped, […]

Global Warming Series Open Thread

I’m trying to establish beyond a shadow of a doubt where global warming stands scientifically, good or bad, ideally resulting in a case the most hardcore partisan couldn’t ignore, and I don’t want to leave any information on the table. So leave a comment here, or e-mail me at mwmailsea at yahoo dot com, if […]

God must be playing an April Fool’s joke.

Is it just me, or is complaining about snow in spring becoming an annual Da Blog tradition? I’d make a global warming comment, except I just got out of a class where the teacher told an anecdote about it snowing on Tax Day (well, today’s Tax Day) in his youth.

Examining the Democratic Platform Part VI: “Advancing Democracy, Development, and Respect for Human Rights”, “Protecting our Security and Saving our Planet”, and “Seizing the Opportunity”

This is continued from Parts I-V of my examination of the Democratic Platform. Today was not a good day for work on my platform examinations. “Advancing Democracy, Development, and Respect for Human Rights”: No country in the world has benefited more from the worldwide expansion of democracy than the United States. Democracies are our best […]

Examining the Republican Platform Part V: “Energy Independence and Security” and “Environmental Protection”

This is continued from Parts I-IV of my examination of the Republican Platform. I have hope the next examination will go up by the end of the night. Considering that so far, I have by and large agreed more often with the Democrats than I have with the Republicans, and I started this project (which […]

An addendum to my previous posts on global warming

To say the least, I have not been getting in as many posts on these topics I feel so strongly about as I would have liked. I think I started falling behind when I was stricken with a cold over the weekend, and subconsciously started using that as an excuse to goof off once I […]

Repowering America? How about Refueling America?

This post is tagged “blog news” because of the new tag being introduced. To make up for a paucity of posts recently, I’m going to try to get in another post later today, following up on this one. I teased in my post on alternative sources of energy (which need to become primary sources of […]
