Search Continues For Hundreds Still Missing In Wake of Ferry Boat Sinking

There were 46 lifeboats attached to the South Korean ferry that sank in frigid waters -- but only one lifeboat was deployed, CNN affiliate YTN reported Thursday. CNN has not been able to independently confirm the report. But if true, it will fuel the anger of families still waiting to hear the fate of 287 passengers still missing at sea.

Cruising Malibu Style

The Chevy Malibu name is an American Icon. My Beautiful 3 year old daughter picked up the name immediately when the vehicle arrived for a week long test drive. She asked “are we going to take the Malibu?” I was impressed and observed she does not really take to the letter and number naming that are so common in 2014. Maybe product planners could learn something from my three year old, give us some cool car names.

I spend a lot of time teaching, and one of the most important things I tell my students, whether they are intelligence personnel getting ready to go down range or college kids learning geopolitics, is this. Always, always, always ask why.

The Free Market vs. the Interventionist State

In whatever direction we turn, we find the heavy hand of government intruding into virtually every aspect of American society. Indeed, it has reached the point that it would be a lot easier to list those areas of people’s lives into which government does not impose itself – and, alas, it would be a very short list. But it was not always that way.

Will The California Drought Get So Bad They’ll Have To Drink Recycled Toilet Water?

With a record-setting, once-in-500-years drought (so bad it can clearly be seen from space) still underway, it may be time for California to embrace toilet water. Recycled toilet water, that is: completely clean, safe-to-drink water that just so happens to have already passed through the municipal supply.
