    Opinion: PoliticsThe quote from Hilary Clinton is not quite correct, She did not have nearly that level of conviction.

    On Friday October 24, Hilary was at a Democratic rally in Massachusetts. 


    Should I sign the back of my credit card?

    Opinion: PoliticsYes, it is a way to prevent credit card fraud.

    See the Visa Risk Management site for merchants who accept credit cards:
    http://usa.visa.com/merchants/risk_management/card_present.html

    When a merchant accepts credit cards, the merchant is responsible for checking identities, because it is the merchant who loses out of fraudulent purchases. If someone steals a credit card and purchases a Snow Blower at a hardware store, the former owner of the credit card is not liable. It usually (in my experience) results in a cancellation of your existing credit card, and issuance of a new credit card.

    TSA and Security Theater wrecking air travel

    Opinion: PoliticsThe Transportation Security Administration (TSA) is a U.S. government agency that was created as part of the Aviation and Transportation Security Act passed by the U.S. Congress and signed into law by President George W. Bush on November 19, 2001. The TSA provides security at airports in the United States. Many columnists are saying what amounts to this: what the TSA staff is doing is "security theater" or making a big show while appearing to accomplish very little except collecting huge bins of personal grooming products.

    Opinion: PoliticsThis is the Libertarian Purity Test, which is intended to measure how libertarian you are. It isn't intended to be any sort of McCarthyite purging device -- just a form of entertainment, hopefully thought-provoking.

    Opinion: PoliticsI have no opinion to offer on whether Pharmacists should or should not offer Birth Control Pill. I do have an opinion on whether the noise, about a few Pharmacists refusing to fill birth control prescriptions, will all subside soon in Minnesota.

    This story appeared in the Star Tribune and mirrors what the media portrays as a nationwide movement of Pharmacists refusing to dispense birth control.
    Meth use not just rural problem. What to do about Sudafed?

    Opinion: PoliticsThe methamphetamine lab problem in my home state is not just confined to the rural areas. An article from our metropolitan newspaper summarizes what could best have been called "The end of a busy 2002" in our neighborhood.

    W.R. Grace Company Executives face Asbestos contamination indictment

    Opinion: PoliticsOn February 8th 2005, the United States Justice Department charged that W.R. Grace & Company and 7 high-ranking employees knew and hid the fact that a Libby, Montana mine exposed the residents to tainted Vermiculite ore. According to the Minneapolis Star-Tribune, this marks the first time that a major company's executives have faced possible jail time for allegedly hiding asbestos hazards from workers.

    The Vermiculite that was produced at the Libby mine was shipped and stored in stockpiles all over the United States. For example, children in Northeast Minneapolis played in the stockpiles of apparently tainted Vermiculite at a W.R. Grace processing plant.
    Minnesota Elector Casts Faithless Ballot In 2004?

    Opinion: PoliticsThe Star Tribune carried a story about the results of the 10 Minnesota State presidential electors casting their votes.

    Defeated Democratic presidential candidate John Kerry likely is going to get one less electoral vote nationally than he should have -- 251 instead of 252 -- because of an apparent mistake Monday by one of Minnesota's 10 DFL electors. This mistake, whether accidental or intentional, gives the distinction of an asterisk in the history books for electoral votes cast in a presidential election. And "Faithless Elector" applies in either case, since no trust could be placed in such an elector who would do such a deed.
