State govs reject mysterious free laptops

Even during tight budgetary times, a growing handful of state governors are proving too wary to accept laptop computers that have shown up at their offices this month, unsolicited. Officials in West Virginia, Vermont, Wyoming and Washington state have reported receiving between three and five laptops , each over the course of two separate deliveries — but none had ordered any of them. “They immediately raised a red flag,” said Matt Turner, spokesman for West Virginia Gov.

Dragnet: On Assignment in the Nation’s Capitol - bobmccarty.com 09/09/2009 As a youngster, I was a huge fan of the television show, Dragnet .  With Sgt. Joe Friday (Jack Webb) and his partner, Officer Bill Gannon (Harry Morgan), the show was kind of corny, but I liked it a lot more than most of the fare that flashes on the small screen today.  In the recently-released video mashup below, the cops from the 1960s police drama give President Barack Obama, the perpetrator of a modern-day [more...]

Palin’s Advocacy: The Turning Point in Health Care Reform Debate

For an uneducated, unsophisticated rube and former governor from a backwater state, Sarah Palin sure can drive a debate.  With prospects for passage of his sweeping overhaul of the American health care delivery system fading with every speech, President Barack Obama is making  it increasingly clear that Palin will be recognized, for good or ill, as perhaps the most prominent single political figure responsible for stopping it in its tracks.It’s a remarkable story.

Broad Cast 11 September 2009

(Alan Turing) Many historians credit the cracking of the German Enigma code by English mathematician Alan Turing with eventual Allied victory in World War II. At the very least, this breakthrough turned the tide of the war and saved untold thousands of lives. After the war, Turing went on to invent the Turing machine, which is considered the basis of all modern computing. For his accomplishments, in 1952 Turing was convicted of "gross indecency" because he admitted to having a gay relationship. [more...]

But a closer look at the treatment he got in the U.K. shows it wasn't all roses. Do we have to say more?
