Bill Simon, Thursday, November 30th, 2006

I am going through a little process right now to upgrade some of the plug-ins that help manage parts of this site. One of them is how people can “Subscribe-To” threads to be notified of when a thread is updated. That was upgraded tonight, but I have no idea as to whether any of your […]

Bill Simon, Thursday, November 16th, 2006

Rumors have it that even with Nancy Pelosi’s (D-CA) endorsement of John Murtha (D-PA) for the new Majority Leader position in the House, Murtha went down by a vote of 149 to 86 in favor of electing Rep.

Bill Simon, Monday, November 13th, 2006

This is rather disturbing:A diesel-powered Chinese sub stalked the U.S.S. Kitty Hawk aircraft carrier for who knows how long before being stumbled upon by a “routine surveillance flight.” Not a “nukuler” sub, but a DIESEL-POWERED sub. Great…just great.
