For Shame!

Greetings!  A recent string of comments here led me to wonder what we mean when we say “Shame on [you].”  I’m not quite sure I get it.  Continue reading

Susan Boyle Debacle

By now almost everyone has heard of Susan Boyle, a homely Scotswoman cum singer.   Her vocal renditions have made for sensationalized television and banal internet fodder.   Whether you find her singing exceptional or abysmal is neither here nor there (though it’s a good indicator of your ear and quality of taste).   What concerns me is the public’s reaction to her performance.

AIG is a perfect example…

Of what?  Well, one thing for sure.  With all the noise surrounding AIG paying bonuses with taxpayer money, I just can’t keep my hands off.  The AIG bonuses are certain to cause controversy and outrage.  But they are not an argument for governmental control of wages.  Rather, they are an argument for taxpayer money staying out of private business.
