Hometown Connection

The word is that you can never go home again. I was born in Buffalo, New York and grew up in an adjacent suburb. I have no desire to return to Western New York (other than perhaps a visit – it’s a great place to eat). Having lived there for the first 47 years of my life it will always be a part of me.

A Question Of Quality

President Trump’s Cabinet has come under fire by progressives from the beginning. It appears that the criticism has spread across more of the political spectrum since. Far from only the best; this Cabinet doesn’t even appear to even be one of acceptable quality. Perhaps that is why we are getting the outcomes we are. The current situation reminds me of the old computer expression GIGO (garbage in; garbage out). Let’s explore.              Continue reading A Question Of Quality
