    Exxon published their data during the decade of the 1970’s. Nothing was hidden or covered-up. Any conclusions based on the data was always open to interpretation. In other words this is all much to do about nothing.

    The typical Union and Confederate foot soldier was tough and strong. Most had poorly fitted and worn out shoes as well, but they still covered ground.

    Scientism: an exaggerated trust in the efficacy of the methods of natural science applied to all areas of investigation (as in philosophy, the social sciences, and the humanities).



    Unlike the use of the scientific method as only one mode of reaching knowledge, scientism claims that science alone can render truth about the world and reality. Scientism’s single-minded adherence to only the empirical, or testable, makes it a strictly scientifc worldview, in much the same way that a Protestant fundamentalism that rejects science can be seen as a strictly religious worldview. Scientism sees it necessary to do away with most, if not all, metaphysical, philosophical, and religious claims, as the truths they proclaim cannot be apprehended by the scientific method. In essence, scientism sees science as the absolute and only justifiable access to the truth.

    Mulching the leaves is the best solution. Leave the mulch on the lawn.

    I am the Nigerian banker, which has what to do about the subject at hand?

    The Clintons and Obamas hate each other and each represent at faction of the democrats.

    Don’t look now, Luckovich, but the democrat crack-up will end up worse than the Republicans.

    Obama and Biden are behind the “drip, drip, drip” of Hillary’s legal problems. The odds are they have every e-mail she sent or received on her private server and know exactly what her legal jeopardy is. Biden will run and unless the Clintons have something on him Hillary will withdraw to avoid prosecution.

    Douglas Edwards was the last good newsreader CBS had and he said everything needed to be said in fifteen minutes.

    Two minutes per mile per day means not many people live on this route. Probably less than 150 boxes or a little over one box per mile.

    ABC has to be the worse about this style of news reading, but the others aren’t much better. Another thing that bothers me (and I make plenty of grammatical and syntax mistakes myself) is the use of “got” with “have” as in “I’ve got.”
