An Inconvenient Truthiness

Former Vice President Al Gore, still basking in the glow of his Oscar win, has taken some hits from the right wing bloggers on the power consumption of his Tennesee home.  And this includes posts on Orange Punch and Orange Juice blogs. The news came from an organization no one has ever heard from and…

March is Women’s History Month

I have been contemplating the likes of Mary Lease “Raise less corn and more hell” and Mother Jones.

Supervisors looking at building a Great Pyramid in Irvine

No, I’m not joking. On todays Board Agenda, the Board had a rather innocuous Consent Item which they pulled for discussion. The matter related to the disposition of some leftover County property from the former El Toro Marine Base. During the discussion Supervisor Moorlach suggested that the staff be directed to look into the possibility…
