Got an interesting email from Brian entitled "why Hillary will never close the deal". His bottom line, with which I agree: people will never like her. So we have Obama, who we like but don't think will be a good President, and Clinton, who we think might be a good President but we don't like. Tough choice.

Powerline comments on Jimmy Carter's visit to Hamas: Different Opinions.

A dangerous one at that.
Randall Parker wonders Is anyone happy about high oil prices? Oddly enough, the answer is no... And yet, it will reduce consumption, greenhouse emissions, and congestion...

Anyway it is what it is; we have a classic supply and demand situation here, and the price is just going to keep increasing...
So now we have VoIP on iPhones (and even iPod Touches). That is pretty interesting, although it requires [not globally available] WiFi to be independent from the cellular network. I have a feeling that this is a dancing bear.
Check this out: the astronomy picture of the day, a "protected" night sky over Flagstaff. Wow. They say this is one of the best parts of long sailing voyages, you get to see a truly dark sky at night.
I love this: Josh Newman tells A true story. "When you are lost, any map will do." Not to mention, when you find yourself in Hell, keep going...
