I think laying off teachers is one of the most short-sighted and stupid things to do to a community. Every municipal bureaucracy is loaded with lazy political appointees, politically connected loafers and cousins of the of rich donors whose absence would not effect the town one iota if they were canned. Sure, get rid of […]

I need to buy a new washing machine. I guess I’m out of luck. I refer to a fascinating article written by Mark Thornton for Mises Daily, part of the Ludwig von Mises Institute website (mises.org). Thanks to the government, you see, washing machines aren’t what they used to be — and they’re getting worse. […]

The World Health Organization research institute recently announced that using a cell phone over a prolonged period could lead to brain cancer. Too bad people were too busy texting their friends and playing Angry Birds on their smart-phones to see the report. Are cartoonists the only ones that saw the news? Click here to view […]

Raging Moderate by Will Durst Like corroded clockwork, the Republicans once again find themselves in the middle of a public relations disaster the size of Jupiter’s largest moon, Ganymede. Specifically, their plan to reform Medicare, which some folks say is akin to a tornado’s plan to reform trailer courts. Of course I’m talking about Paul […]

Anthony Weiner, as he fields questions about a lewd photograph that was sent from his Twitter account to a 21-year-old college student. Weiner claims his Twitter account was hacked, but when asked directly whether the bulging boxers in question were his, Weiner said […]

In an age when Twitterphiles are able to communicate deep thoughts with just 140 characters, it’s puzzling that the authors of highway signs so often struggle to make sense. Zigzagging my way from Virginia to Massachusetts I encountered numerous signs that were impossible to decipher. For instance, on I-95 near Quantico Marine Base in Virginia […]

Making Sense by Michael Reagan President Barack Hussein Obama is instructing our only staunch allies in the Middle East to risk destruction at the hands of one of the most radical terrorist organization in that troubled area, and he must be stopped before some of the world’s holiest historical sites are closed to the tens […]

I’ve seen an ad on TV a couple times. It features the Pond House Cafe in Elizabeth Park.
