Philip Seymour Hoffman Dead at 46

On February 2, 2014, actor Philip Seymour Hoffman, 46, was found dead in his Manhattan apartment, of an apparent drug overdose. Hoffman was in a longstanding relationship with costume designer Mimi O’Donnell. They met while working on the 1999 play “In Arabia We’d All Be Kings,” which Hoffman directed. They had a son born in

Christie’s Political Career Unraveling

A few weeks ago, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie was a top contender in the GOP to be the next President of the United States of America. Now there’s a good chance, Christie won’t make it through his second term as governor. And even if Christie isn’t run out of office over the George Washington

How to create a maintenance page for Apache web server

Apache web servers have been a part of my life for nearly two decades. While Apache and the web has certainly changed a lot since 1995, one of the things that never changes is that at some point I’m going to need to toss up a maintenance page for one of my websites. Doing a

Political Terrorism

Here’s a fun fact. The 21st century Republican Party is a terrorist political organization. The problem for the GOP is that they can’t win elections. The solution is not to come up with more compelling policies. No, the Republican Party has decided that rather than worry about winning elections, they’ll just take a few hostages

Drupal: How to hide “View” and “Edit” tabs on node page

I needed to get rid of the “View” and “Edit” tabs from the node view page in Drupal 7. Even though the tabs are only for logged in users who can edit the particular node, I had another user interface to do that sort of thing. I actually find it annoying that Drupal even makes

The New York Times Sucks

The New York Times botched a story today, which is why the New York Times sucks — today. The headline of the story is “Dispute Over Budget Deepens a Rift Within the G.O.P..” It’s a rather dry story about the federal budget and internal squabbling among Republicans in Congress. However, in the story the New

Boston Attacked

At 2:50 p.m., two explosions rocked the Boston Marathon finish line killing at least two people and injuring more than 100. One of the fatalities is an 8-year-old boy. At a 6 p.m. press conference President Obama cautioned against jumping to conclusions. “But make no mistake, we will get to the bottom of this,” Obama

Louie Gohmert is correct

Restrict the number of bullets in a firearm magazine and people will eventually have sex with animals. That’s the argument Republican Texas US Congressman Louie Gohmert has made about efforts by liberals to limit the ammunition capacity of firearms. It makes sense, too. What happens is that if we allow the federal government the power

Is America the Next Rome?

The American political system is broken. The US Congress is incapable of passing any meaningful legislation to solve the nation’s most pressing problems. Therefore, the United States of America’s best days are behind her and she is dying a slow death. I said this back in 2000 and 2004 when George W. Bush was elected

The 26 Casualties of the Newtown, Connecticut Massacre

So that we never forget. Here are the names of the 26 people murdered Friday morning, December 14, 2012 in Newtown, Connecticut at the Sandy Hook elementary school. CHARLOTTE BACON DANIEL BARDEN RACHEL DAVINO OLIVIA ENGEL JOSEPHINE GAY ANA G. MARQUEZ-GREENE DYLAN HOCKLEY DAWN HOCHSPRUNG MADELEINE F. HSU CATHERINE V. HUBBARD CHASE KOWALSKI JESSE LEWIS


The time for real gun regulation and mental health treatment was years ago. In the wake of yet another mass killing by an armed gunman that left 20 children and 6 adults dead at an elementary school in Newtown Conn., now is the time to for politicians to stop quivering in the shadow of the

Remember Labor Organizer Frank Little

On August 1, 1917, labor organizer Frank Little was taken forcibly from his boarding house in Butte, Montana, and was lynched from a railroad trestle. In the summer of 1917, Frank had been helping to organize copper workers in a strike against the Anaconda Copper Company, but it was most likely his stand against World

What happened to Jonathan Dailey?

On October 9, 2012, the body of Jonathan Dailey, 23, of North Carolina was found in Boston’s Charles River. His body was discovered with a chain attached to a cinder block. As of Nov. 4, the medical examiner has not released a report about the cause of Dailey’s death. Massachusetts state troopers are investigating to try

Democrats in the poll position for a net gain of three US Senate seats

There are seven seats that could switch party control this year. At this point, I see the Democrats possibly picking up five seats and the Republicans two. That’s a net gain of three seats for the Democrats, bumping their majority up to 56. That’s still not enough to overcome a Republican filibuster, and it’s too

Obama hits Romney on Tax Policy

It didn’t take 24 hours before President Obama came out with an ad slamming his opponent, Mitt Romney, for failing to speak honestly about his tax policy. Romney claims that it’s simply not true that he’s calling for a $5 trillion tax cut. But the fact is, Romney wants a 20 percent reduction in the

Punditocracy says Romney beat Obama to a pulp in first debate

I watched the debate between Mitt Obama last night, but apparently I watched a much different debate performance than the cable new punditocracy did. My reaction was that while Romney didn’t fail, he didn’t nail it either. Obama made some good arguments while Romney continued with his broad strokes short on details and heavy on bold and
