Re: Disturbing AP story on FOIA

Why were those cuts made? Who made them? Were they necessitated by budget cuts? If so, how were those budget cuts implemented? Or were they made by those who simply wanted fewer people processing FOIA requests?

Just to clear things up [more]

Re: Hilary: There is no classified material...

I'm curious Ken, why do you do that? I've read posts from you that are quite insightful and you're not a stupid man. You know what I'm talking about yet you respond as though we're talking about some normal people involved in a trivial law suit and [more]

Re: Hilary: There is no classified material...

True, but if this winds up in court, the burden of proof isn't hers.

Actually, in this case the burden of proof MAY be on her because the AP has filed a lawsuit against the State Department over their FOIA requests not being [more]

Germany is not doing well

I have commented on this before but I continue to see Germany mentioned as a country to be admired and that the US should look to emulate in at least some respects.

Re: Montana still better

As far as "calling their own plays", I'm going to go out on a limb and assume that today's playbook is a tad more complex than Bradshaw's was. Word is Bradshaw wasn't all that book-smart, but he was dang sure smart enough to know a [more]

Re: What I'd like to see

<iThe most recent funny SF that I've read is "Red Shirts" by Scalzi. Quite humorous.

You might also try Fuzzy Nation by Scalzi. It's funny as well as an interesting tale. It's one of the first I listened to on audio before [more]

Re: What I'd like to see

Old Mans War and the sequels are on my list of favorites. You should try "Phules Company" by Robert Asprin. I think you'd enjoy it.

Re: What I'd like to see

I'd have to go with "Phules Paradise" by Robert Asprin.

I meant "Phules Company" which was the first in the series. Sorry about that. "Phules Paradise" is also good (the second I believe) as are the rest [more]

Re: What I'd like to see

I'd have to go with Greg Bears "Forge of God" as my most desired movie based on a book. One of the most gripping (no pun intended for the Motie fans) stories I've ever read. "Lucifers Hammer", the "Mote" series", [more]

Re: National Signing Day

How good they are in high school is a pretty good predictor of whether they ultimately play in the NFL. This has been studied many times. For example, in 2010 there were 27 5* recruits and 16 were drafted by the NFL 2014 (59%) while there were [more]

Re: National Signing Day

Why wouldn't a 5-star performer want to sign up with a team that is going to be seen by every NFL recruiter almost every time they play?
Apparently, Auburn got the number 1 recruit. And Ohio State snatched a 4-star recruit from Alabama. I can

Do they believe they can fight the entire world? They will soon learn the answer.

Re: I Wonder About Rand Paul's Medical Credentials

Rand Paul said that vaccines can cause “profound mental disorders.” Paul made the controversial statements during a TV interview.

Re: What's the speed of light in space?

Another near-synonym for "margin of error" is "standard error". This is the standard deviation of the sampling statistic of a statistic. It is one-half the width of the 68% confidence interval. Some scientists, including many [more]
