I’m a huge fan of electric vehicles. I love the idea and the recent advances in the technology have begun to indicate that we might actually see some real, functional EV’s coming up soon. If you’d like to see a report on one that’s going to be hitting California’s roads soon, check out Wired Magazine’s [...]

When I sat down at my desk this morning, my laptop had fired up and gone about accessing the various systems I’ve got it set up to do. E-mail is, of course, one of the primary chores it handles and I’ve got 3 accounts to manage. This morning’s deliveries included e-mails from 2 of the [...]
A hat tip to The Loudoun Scoop for pointing me to a number of sources of information on the arrests made in the Lansdowne murder case here in Loudoun. The Loudoun Independent has great coverage of this as well as of the crime in general: Residents of Lansdowne and neighboring Potomac Station may sleep a [...]
GM is set to announce that it will terminate the Pontiac brand as part of its plan to hold off bankruptcy, reports are saying. Two people briefed on GM’s plan confirmed that it includes the demise of Trans Am sports car brand Pontiac, 83 years after the first Pontiac car was introduced. Within three years, [...]
In catching up on local news I found this story over at the Loudoun Times-Mirror titled, “Guns could be allowed in county parks.” (Cue the scary music!)

That line out of the commonly-known Miranda warning won’t be in there much longer if the Obama administration has their way. I noted this back on Thursday but didn’t have much of a chance to comment until now. The case in question is Michigan v. Jackson which was appealed to the Supreme Court in 1986. [...]
I’ve made mention before that 1) America needs more domestic energy production, 2) the technology with the most promise to provide that with minimal environmental effects is nuclear, and 3) that we should be doing this now. Here’s Sen. Lamar Alexander in this week’s GOP address with thoughts on just these matters.
Conficker, the worm that has compromised thousands of PC’s globally, was giving everyone a fit on April 1, the date experts said it was destined to fire. That date came and went with nothing happening so the subject just fell from the public radar. Well, it’s coming back on the screen now that it appears [...]
I found an e-mail waiting for me when I got home showing that all 3 of the GOP candidates for Virginia’s Attorney General, John Brownlee, Ken Cuccinelli, and Dave Foster (that list is alphabetical, not by preference) have endorsed Lt. Gov. Bill Bolling for re-election. That’s good to hear. For the record, so do I. [...]
