The Meteorological Patriarchy Drops the Ball

Sure, it wasn't as bad as expected, but tell that to the New Yorkers with snow on the hoods of their cars and no prospect of government assistance anytime soon.

Has Elon Musk Even Seen the Terminator Movies?

Elon Musk (if that is his name) wants to put computers into orbit:

But he'll also use the talk to announce his newest idea, which would launch a vast network of communication satellites to orbit earth. The network would do two things: speed up the general flow of data on the Internet and deliver high-speed, low-cost Internet services to the three billion-plus people who still have poor access to the Web. “Our focus is on creating a global communications system that would be larger than anything that has been talked about to date,” Musk told Bloomberg Businessweek ahead of the announcement.

The Space Internet venture, to which Musk hasn’t yet given a name, would be hugely ambitious. Hundreds of satellites would orbit...
 No name yet yet? Hmm, it's a vast network, and it's up in the sky...

Presidential Class Internet

I got an e-mail from the president that began:

This could make your Internet faster
And I couldn't help but think back to how he made health care more affordable.

Paris Unity Rally

Some world leaders marched at the front.

Though some "led from behind."

Good Advice

Kevin D Williamson, ripped off in total:

President Obama, giving a speech on housing in Phoenix, said, with a straight face: “Don’t buy what you can’t afford.”
That is excellent advice; would that the U.S. government lived by it. As it stands, if the national debt continues to increase at the same pace it did under Obama-Pelosi-Reid and Obama-Boehner-Reid, then in about seven years it will amount to more than the value of all the residential real estate in the United States—combined.
There is an old expression: “Eating us out of house and home.” Surely, we are buying more government than we can afford. 

Did You Know This is Sometimes Called a "Nodding Donkey"

Well it is. 
And that thing behind the nodding donkey is a pumpjack oil pump.

Hands-on President

President Obama interviews a prospective health care
 provider in an effort to ensure Obamacare can cut costs 
and still deliver "somewhat adequate health care."

Maybe I was all wrong about this guy.
