Singing to a Turkey on American Idol

    Of course Americans aren't actually talking this morning about the war, or Washington corruption, or the economy, but rather about the young Montana cowboy named Garrett (or maybe "Garet") who, until he auditioned for American Idol, had only...

"The Worst Ineptitude in Governance"

   "As a teacher who's studied every administration since 1945, I think this is probably the worst ineptitude in governance, decision-making and leadership I've seen in 50-plus years. You've got to go back and think about that. That includes the...

New Achenblog Comment Policy

Strategic Pudge Reserve
