Greg Diamond doesn’t speak for me

I had a half dozen texts on my phone this morning when I got up for bootcamp all pointing to an editorial by Greg Diamond over at The Orange Juice Blog.  Greg’s running out of material that he needs to take offense to posts written here.  Let’s make a few things clear: Greg Diamond doesn’t…

CES CEO Gary Shapiro Speaks Out Against Trump

One of the world’s largest trade shows is the annual Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, usually held the first week of January (try finding a cheap hotel room that week).  With tonight’s debate slated for Las Vegas, I came across this post from Gary Shapiro, the president and CEO of the Consumer Electronics Show. …

Democrats Makes History with Clinton’s Nomination
