Street or Golf Course?

Just when I thought it was impossible to make a car uglier than the Scion or dopier and more dangerous than a Smart Car, VOILÀ!  Google actually did it!  What we have here is a solution in search of a problem! The creature has been describe as a combination of a Volkswagen Beetle and a […]

Hi-Tech Robo Geeks

The only thing scarier looking than the mechanical ‘Martian’ in the radiation suit is the four legged stack of servos and circuits, arranged into a furless, robotic rendition of Rin Tin Tin!  Anyone see the movie “The Bicentennial Man?”  Well, that seems to be where we’re headed.  It would all be quite laughable, if the […]

You may have heard that Mrs. Obama’s former Princeton Classmate is now a big muckety-muck with the computer company that received the no-bid contract to botch the $680 million Obamacare signup site. Katy Sebelius said, now, she is going to bring in the “A” team and so she has … have no fear, the “A” […]

Whatever Works

Kathleen Sebelius hit the campaign trail yesterday, telling Congress that she was “too busy” to appear at the probe into her failure as point person on the Obamacare website project. Speaking to a small press conference in Phoenix she said, “The majority of people calling for me to resign I would say are people who […]
