news & opinion with no titillating non-news from the major non-news channels.


I am: progressive, not a wild-eyed Progressive; liberal, but shun liberals and Liberals; conservative, but some Conservatives worry me; absolutely NOT a libertarian. I am: an idealist, but no utopian; a pragmatist, but no Machiavellian. I am a realist who dreams.


I welcome all opinions.

Space junk:
   Where's the privy?

from the Space Weather News newsletter:
SUITSAT: There's a new satellite orbiting Earth, and it's a weird one. On Friday, Feb. 3rd, at 6:02 pm EST, astronauts threw an old Russian spacesuit overboard from the International Space Station. The disembodied suit, nicknamed SuitSat, is now circling Earth and transmitting a radio message which you can hear using a police scanner or ham radio tuned to 145.990 MHz (FM). Please visit http://spaceweather.com for more information about SuitSat and how to tune into it.
Geez, Ivan! Were ya born in a barn or somethin'?
