Redheads Rule … well, Genghis Khan did

18 April, 2008

So, in my rather collegiate attempts recently (largely successful) to procrastinate, I did finally, once and for all, get the story on my red hair.  Or … actually I just perused the article on this topic on Wikipedia, which of course may or may not be full of it.  I was shocked a little and amused that they noted Monsiuer Khan as a(n) historical redhead (a la “historical babes” also in Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure).  Word.


Warming Warning 2.0, redux, redo . . .

I would direct your attention to this recent lecture by the so-appealing-nowadays “former next president of the United States,” as he runs around and around this crazy-important set of issues.  So, did you actually see An Inconvenient Truth ?

Oh, and it looks as though MIT/Sloan has had smart things to say about this recently too, from a … hmm, business perspective.  Shocking.  And (yet) enlightening, too.  Why is this not surprising?

Obama’s Nuances Lost on Some Duances?

26 March, 2008

Last week, Barack Obama gave us an important personal statement on his own and America’s multi-racism, “A More Perfect Union.”  Candidate Obama played his own “race card” — masterfully, to my view, and certainly provocatively.

And at least one smart-guy Stanford law professor has a similar sense to mine, that the speech represents notes toward a “way through” the complex difficulties of race in America.  Best of luck and fortitude to us all.

It’s Late But Early Yet

Just getting settled in here at, where I hope to “log” some useful ruminations, considerations, reflections, conjunctions and junctions, likely often posted mid-night.  Please do feel you must comment on any and all — I appreciate it.  Suggestions/recommendations in the categories I’ve created are always welcome, too.
