Yes, Psychicwolf, Sutherland was the man whose name I had in mind. Thank you for the correction... But why do I have the hopeless feeling that your correction, even though absolutely right, is totally meaningless? We can put all the deck chairs on the starboard side, or we can put all the deck chair...

This is going to be good... I wonder if Fox is going to reveal the following: 1. the Deepwater Horizon disaster happened on 20 April when the rig drilled into a pocket of undersea oil with a pressure of 20,000 to 70,000 pounds per square inch. NO wellhead could have withstood that pressure, which ha...

Wait until a Gulf of Mexico hurricane spreads the benzene, hydrogen sulfide and methylene chloride (which is currently sweeping over Florida and Georgia in lethal plumes) all over the East Coast! Happy days then, indeed! We're all gonna die! We're all gonna die! We're all gonna die! The sky is falli...

I saw a couple of episodes from Season I, and like Queen Victoria, I was not amused. My problem is not with the actors, all of whom give fine performances. (I was shocked, for example, to learn that Anna Paquin was the Oscar winner from The Piano in 1994.) There is a lot of fine acting talent out th...

http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/business/10281079.stm Just this morning I read that BP's stocks are tanking on Wall Street amid penalty fears, as worries mount that other British interests may be threatened as a result ... To what else is BP connected? And are the American people being set up for anothe...

I can't believe that the people of Great Britain will stand for such a statement from Cameron. Great Britain is where it is precisely because the people at the top have stolen whatever is not nailed down. When the same canard was uttered to the people of Greece, they revolted --- and, as far as I ca...

In 1930 there were some efforts to rectify the economic consequences of the Crash of 1929, and to some extent, they worked. But in 1931 the second wave of the Great Depression hit, and this is what kept America flat on its back for the next ten years. The same thing is happening now. But people do n...

Yes, I have noticed this trend too, on the rare occasions when I have listened to the show (i.e. when Noory has a dominant guest who takes over the program to express his point of view). It's S.O.P. for Noory, precisely because it allows him to "coast" through Coast-to-Coast , both with a minimum of...

Racehorse, "Mr. Viagra," knowing that he could not win the Presidency, cut a deal with Clinton to serve as the paper tiger against him in 1996. Dole lost --- big! --- just he thought he would (ditto for McCain, but not Palin, in 2008), and Clinton promptly rewarded him for his complicity, right afte...
