  • Humanity's future depends on better choices

    My old friend and work colleague Brian was an academically qualified scientific researcher before he retired. He spent 55-plus years performing, supervising and managing a selection of scientific endeavors and programs sponsored by the Western world governments, industry and philanthropists during the last half of the 20th century.  He worked in England and all over the USA and still travels extensively to Europe and the Far and Middle East.

  • Remember Bruce and Alice King

    Bruce and Alice King came as a set. Once one piece was gone, the other wasn’t very functional. They campaigned together as a two-fer long before Bill and Hillary picked up on it.

    Alice was Bruce’s campaign treasurer and he never spent a cent without her approval. One night when I pulled out a tattered check to pay for his book, “Cowboy in the Roundhouse,” Bruce mentioned that Alice also gave him only one check at a time.

    U.S. Senators Jeff Bingaman and Tom Udall have asked the Department of Homeland Security to provide New Mexicans with assurances that their travel plans early in 2010 will not be disrupted by a federal law governing drivers’ licenses.
