It is being reported that founder Jeff Bezos is to purchase the Washington Post newspaper conglomerate for $250 million dollars.   It is always a surprise when a successful businessman makes an entry into a totally different field but this announcement is both remarkable and tantilizin...
Another in the series of Take a Break posts for all of us on a Sunday afternoon.   I have heard this music before, but it has been a while.  My notes say "The Typewriter" for orchestra was written by Leroy Anderson in 1950.  This performance is given by the National Orchestra and Chorus of Spain ...
I note that I have been hanging out on Active Rain for seven years now. During that time I have participated in discussions about photography, technology, politics (oh yes –  the politics) and life in general.  I do not contribute as much as I used to.  The culture is changing –  the politics has...
Although Washington DC is booming in areas as a result of the high demand for graft and corruption inside the Beltway, there are areas of the District that are economically depressed and underserved by major retail outlets that thrive in other major cities.  Wal-Mart has offered to enter the area...

So there has been an ext...
I have spoken in the past about George Gilder and his book “Telecosm” written in 2000. Gilders premise is that cultures have changed significantly when technology changes and drives the cost of some factor of production to (or near) zero. In the industrial revolution, it was horsepower. In the 19...
OK - I was finished with this topic in my last post . But a little closer inspection of the incident was about to creep into my response to comments, so I will add to my thoughts here. Those who have had enough of the subject may feel free to click "next" and go back to watching football. I...
I wrote a draft of an article about the incident at Sandy Hook shortly after it occurred. I did not complete it because such discussions are no longer fun. Political and media agendas are taking over where reason and rational thinking should be in charge. But as I continue to hear the baying of t...
