Shocking Observation, October 2015

He said that he canceled his subscription. I asked why and he said he was getting tired of all the negative news. That’s interesting because just a few days prior I really got the same feeling after looking over that day’s paper. Just a few days later, October 8, 2015, I talked to my next door neighbor and he too has dropped out from following the news.

WSJ: Climate Science Is Not Settled, by Steven E. Koonin

The Wall Street Journal, September, 20-21 (weekend), Review section, page C1 had an article titled “Climate Science Is Not Settled” by Steven E.

My wife and I were in San Luis Obispo June 23 on vacation.  That evening our room lights dimmed, a brown out.  A while later we lost power.  My wife looked out the window and reported not seeing any lights.  After finding two LED  flashlights I pulled out my hand held ham radio and turned to one of the local repeaters.  (146.670 MHz).  It took a while but within, I would guess fifteen minutes, we got a pretty clear picture…

Letter to LA Times, June 2010, Subject is California Primary Election Results.

Letter to LA Times, June 2010, Subject is California Primary Election Results.

The day after the last California election I looked through my LA Times print edition to find the election results.   Where was the results buried?  It is most frustrating that I can easily  find sports scores but not political scores. Do you have to be told why newspaper subscriptions are falling?  I will thus tell you.  It is because newspaper management, at times, is not capable of realizing and thus meeting the needs of its customers.  I think this arrogance…
