There is a blog here in the Ethereal Land called Chickenman that I have not advertised much because I wanted to see if his blog would last. Now that the blog has something like a track record, I thought that I would give it little more exposure. I think I can safely say that if […]

In a post I that I wrote last week I said (speaking of Edward Hugh’s post on a recent article in The Economist called Suddenly, the old world looks younger)….. But while I agree with most of what Mr. Hugh says, his post fails to relieve me of the need to write my own post. […]

My apologies to Claus Vistesen over at Alpha.Sources. I think I lead him to believe that I was going to write a post focusing on a recent article on demographics in last week’s Economist. And that was what I sat down to write. But when I started writing a long standing grudge against The Economist […]

I know, I know, I owe a post on one of the three subjects that I said I wanted to blog about. And I will have a post on The Economist article on demographics up today or tomorrow (per Mr. Vistesen’s request I decided to do that one first). But Andrew Cusack linked to three […]

Edward Hugh (A British born Spanish based economist who specializes in economic effects of demographic change) has […]

One of those weird issues that I devote my thinking time to is the intersection between values and architecture. So I was very excited when I came across a blog called Architecture and Morality (Thank you Marginal Revolution). Unfortunately, the blog does not live up to its name as much as I would like. Most […]

Okay, so technically this is a typhoon not a hurricane. But I could not resist the irony. People who watch the oil markets have been worrying because they say that one strong Hurricane in the Gulf of Mexico could send gas prices sky high in the US. Now there is a Category 5 typhoon heading […]

What would happen if I throw the polite hillbilly side of me to the dogs and let my ignorant redneck side run this show? Judging by what happens every time I write a rant; the number of interesting comments on this web site would triple. My latest rant to attract attention was called “How George […]
