Mohammed’s iPhone

I had the great pleasure of travelling by air this past weekend to Cleveland, Ohio. If you have to travel across the country in a sardine tin, I can suggest several places you might want to go that would offer a better destination experience, but this was a reunion trip with my spouse, and I survived both the air travel and the subsequent city experience.

The Ultimatum Mentality

logo 2015 250x325Let’s forget the labels. Just for a bit, OK? No trigger words.

Some people like the idea of a nuclear deal with Iran. Some don’t. One has to assume that each and every one of these people has a reason to think as they do. That’s probably too much to wish for, but let’s be charitable. Continue reading
