About Us
A penny for your thoughts indeed. Around here that would be a raise.

What makes a good blog? I think thematic consistency, a little exhibitionism, and honest writing. I can promise you the last one.

Most of my posts seem to be about music or politics. Some of them are funny. But all of them would love to hear a comment from you.

Oh-- and please welcome God to the APW team. We're thrilled and humbled to serve as His earthly vessel.

My Photo
Name:
Location: NYC

I was born at a relatively young age. Growing up consumed the better part of my childhood. As a young man I chased a lot of girls. But they kept getting away. Then I got older and even slower, so I got married. I've lived in New York City almost since before I moved here. I summer in Manhattan, which is like New York City, but with more humidity.

Here's me, without baby, thinking big thoughts. (Actually, what I'm thinking is, "Hey, these aren't Pringles!") I think I look better with baby.

He That Troubleth His Own House...
Tuesday, February 07, 2006
In Bush’s State of the Union speech last week, he bemoaned the fact that American students lagged behind our industrial-world competition in math and science. This gap is becoming increasingly problematic; many companies, we learned in the days that followed, are exporting their “knowledge jobs” overseas.

Of course, what Dubya doesn’t want to stare down is the fact that His America is simply downright inhospitable to science. In Dubya’s America, evolution is “just a theory.” In Dubya’s America, using stem cells to develop cures to terrible diseases is immoral. In Dubya’s America, aborting a pregnancy is not an option for a woman. In Dubya’s America, global warming is a creation of the liberal media.

In short, we will continue to lag behind the rest of the civilized world in the sciences-- and the gap will only get worse-- until we have, as John “I need your help to lose with dignity” Kerry so aptly put it, a president who believes in science.

Pandering and buffoonery, it turns out, actually have consequences.

Pandering and buffoonery do indeed have consequences; I wish we had known that in Mrs. Gropper's class. Of course, then it wouldn't have been any fun at all. I mean, sometimes pandering and buffoonery is all you have.
