Since I Last Blogged

Since I last blogged, the world lost a chief inventor. Steve Jobs died a legend, for better or worse. I’ll go with better. Because since I last blogged, the emergency alert system at Virginia Tech rang out for the second time in four months; gunfire rang out for the second time in four years. Thirty-five […]

Osama Bin Laden is Dead

As I was watching Brothers & Sisters tonight on my DVR, I first found out via Twitter that Osama Bin Laden was dead. Minutes later, I received an AP alert on my phone. The news exploded even more on Twitter and Facebook after that, and then, my DVR caught up with the world, and a […]
