“"Senator McConnell must now reach out to conservatives and espouse the values of liberty. If he does, and rejects, higher federal debts, Obamacare and amnesty, he’ll prevail in November."

Oh Jenny Beth, do you or your party have a single original thought or plan in your collective heads? Didn't think so. Bring on November.”

“I don't think they look silly on runners, but as casual footwear yeah, a little quirky.”

“I've got a couple pair now. At first I was a little nervous about wearing them for anything other than exercise, but then I realized that normal is putting my feet into essentially brown or white boxes that are twice the size of my feet. It seems so strange to think of that as normal now. After a couple of years of wearing them in public, nobody who thinks they look strange has been cared enough to say it to my face but I've had several compliments and more than a few questions on how they feel.”

“I thought FiveFingers was an intriguing idea but I never bought a pair out of complacency. I've been running for forty years and am blessed with sturdy ankles and feet. That said, I've always loved to run barefoot but have punctured my soles enough times that it was just counterproductive. My high school running coach encouraged us to do our morning runs barefoot on grass or dirt trails. His advice was based on studying the likes of Abebe Bikila and other barefoot runners from Africa and India. We westerners have been wearing soled shoes all our lives and haven't got the naturally toughened soles and foot musculature to suddenly ditch our ASICS Gel Kayanos. It takes time to adapt!

I'm still enticed by the Vibram design and think it's just too bad they didn't invest in a little more scientific research to back their claims.”

“Can't speak for USC, but I wish B&N lots of luck in swaying UCLA, the monster that has sucked the life out of the independent marketplace for miles around the Westwood campus. I wonder if B&N could strike a deal with these schools to discount textbooks for its Nook reader it could mean millions in revenue.”

“Someone's got to keep the manufacturer of 8' floppies in business! Back in the late 80's when I was a Navy contractor, I asked my program manager why systems on the F-14 fleet were still programmed via long reels of hole-punched paper tape. He replied that as inefficient and antiquated as it was, that the paper tape was already EMI-hardened and couldn't be "erased" by electromagnetic radiation. Made perfect sense in the narrow-minded logic that runs so much of our military establishment.”

“"who downloads source and implements it into production code without checking It first?"

Apparently the entire Linux distribution business, for one. Red Hat, Debian, Ubuntu, SUSE and dozens of others released the buggy OpenSSL when they had their own opportunities to discover and fix it. We end users trust these distros to maintain vulnerability-free code or at least to patch it quickly. That said, I strongly doubt a commercial OS vendor (hello Cupertino and Redmond!) would have caught the flaw had they chosen to use OpenSSL as part of their release.”

“"What do you do?" has always been a favorite of mine for the answers I give. I never mention my profession but am happy to tell the person that I raise kids, surf, play the guitar, surf some more and make love to my wife almost as much as I surf. The other person usually (hopefully) realizes they've got a nut on their hands and move on.”

Jared Leto's Oscar Win For 'Dallas Buyers Club' Criticized By Transgender Community

“Jared Leto gave a performance that brought tears to my eyes (esp. when Rayon visits his/her dad at the bank). I know nothing of this actor personally but believe his was a heartfelt performance. When an actor can exude such profound empathy for a character that he is not in real life -- and makes you in turn empathize with the plight of transgender people the world over -- what does it matter if his acceptance speech skips a few gratuitous thank-yous? If anything, the transgender community should be grateful for his mesmerizing and dignified performance. Leto sent the message. I, for one, got it. Hand him the Oscar!”

“Name a president in the past century whose policy decisions were the direct result of his religious beliefs. That's right, you can't. It's way easier to name a president whose actions were an affront to his espoused religion. (Richard Nixon, anyone?). Therefore an atheist in the White House would do just fine.”
