What Causes June Gloom? A Scientist Explains

I vote for "Gray Sky July" and look forward to "Fogust." Let's not have any visits from that "jolly" elf, Santa Ana. I have lived here this time (last time was in the '40s during my first five years on the planet anywhere) for the past 33 years, and have really enjoyed the few cool summers we have experienced. I would appreciate another this year.

Chalmers Johnson Dead At 79

I just read an excellent piece on Johnson in *The Nation." (

I am sorry to see him go. We need more of his stature and intellect yelling out with each book, "The empire has no clothes!"

Christian Right Targets San Diego Judges

Oops... a typo. In my previous post I meant to say "are NOW campaigning," not "are NOT campaigning."

Christian Right Targets San Diego Judges

Those who would rail against so-called "activist judges" are not campaigning for "activist judges." I offer as evidence Pastor Chris Clark's own statement: ""As a voter, I have a responsibility to elect judges that [sic] are not going to make decisions and look at the law in ways that I don't believe they should be looking at the law." So he wants "activist judges" who see things his way.

Judges exist to adjudicate, to apply the law -- not someone's version or view of the law, but The Law as it exists and is explicated in the federal, state, county, or municipal codes. And all those codes are available to anyone at any time on the Internet.

Please Pastor Clark, do not commit the logical fallacy that the way you think is the way the code is written.
