The Last Weekend
Author: TriSec    Date: 02/06/2016 12:56:24

Good Morning.

So New England finally has some snow. I don't think we actually have that much on the ground, looks like about 6 inches from my warm chair here. But it was the heavy, wet kind. Driving home from the store last night, I saw trees down on nearly every street, and there was also a lane blocked on I-90 eastbound in Framingham with an entire tree.

One Down - 49 To Go
Author: BobR    Date: 02/03/2016 14:06:55

It's been a couple days since the Iowa caucuses, and the results will depend upon whom you talk to. On the Republican side, Ted Cruz won, but really - Marco Rubio won because he beat expectations. Trump lost, but gave an uncharacteristic nice concession "speech". On the Democratic side, Clinton won, even though it was pretty much a tie, but actually Sanders won because he too beat expectations. If your head is spinning, it's because of all the spin coming from the campaigns and their supporters.

The results on the Republican side were fairly definitive. There was no real controversy with the results, nor with the process used to create them. The Democratic side, however, is a whole 'nuther story...

Good Morning.

With the last Republican debate behind us, I'm a little late on the draw with this one, but nevertheless I hope you've been following this news on the book of face.

How do We Get There?

“Path dependence has to mean, if it is to mean anything, that once a country or region has started down a track, the costs of reversal are very high. There will be other choice points, but the entrenchments of certain institutional arrangements obstruct an easy reversal of the initial choice.”

I have written about this theory before. The last time it was related to our healthcare system and the ACA. This theory, be it political or economic, has been on my mind the past few weeks. On this day of the Iowa caucus, the first votes to replace President Obama are taking place. As with every few years, many people are firmly planted in their political camps. On our side of the aisle, we are faced with candidates that are stellar, competent and excellent choices.

Looking Back

I was going to write something inspiring, but then I forgot what it was. I guess it wasn't that inspiring after all.

Major Malfunction
Author: TriSec    Date: 01/30/2016 13:53:11

Good Morning.

I was a little surprised by the lack of media attention this week for what should have been a major anniversary. I'll admit I don't watch much TV anymore, but even online I only saw a handful of stories, and most of those lumped together all of NASA's significant accidents...which curiously have all taken place within a six-day span. (01/27 - 02/01)
