Off to the forest for a week.

I'm off with the dogs and the better-half to the mountains for a week. I decided I wanted to be no where near Denver this next week.

Gitmo on the Platte

I'm so proud of my adopted city. Its just like being at the Chinese Olympics.

Thanks to TexBetsy for pointing this one out.

John McCain and the draft

QUESTIONER: If we don’t reenact the draft, I don’t think we’ll have anyone to chase Bin Laden to the gates of hell.


MCCAIN: Ma’am, let me say that I don’t disagree with anything you said.

Is McCain's POW story a lie?

McCain likes to tell a story from when he was a prisoner of war, of a guard who eased his pain by loosening his bonds and who later drew a cross in the dirt on Christmas to signify that he was a Christian. Its a fantastic story, but is it true?

A number of sources have cast some doubt on McCain's story. A circumstantial argument can be made that McCain's story just doesn't pass the sniff test. First, when McCain was debriefed by the military following his return, nothing like this story was mentioned. Its an incrediable story, why not mention it. And second, the most damning, the story is just too similar to the one told by the cold war dissident Alexander Solzhenitsyn in his novel The Gulag Archepelago. The novel describes Solzhenitsyn's time in Soviet Gulags, and McCain has stated that it is one of his favorite books.

Thanks to TexBetsy for pointing out the video.

What we know for sure.

Dr. Heidi Cullen, from the Mauna Loa observatory, discusses how we know for sure that carbon dioxide is increasing in the atmosphere (because of the burning of fossil fuels).

Look what McCain has started.
