Mom and Dad had antecedents on both sides of that bloody conflict. Counties were split, towns were split, and families were split. It was never as simple as being the north versus the south.

The Preacherman says, "My advice to you is to get yourself a gun and learn how to shoot." The Gunman says, "My advice to you is to get yourself a Bible and learn how to pray."

Entry for 1/14/2008

Someday in the future people will get into their cars, tell the cars where they wish to go, and the cars will do all of the driving. Vacuum cleaners, lawnmowers, and snow blowers will be robotic. Fighter jets and bombers will be pilotless. Whatever you are dreaming now is a done-deal for tomorrow.

In the wide wild world of blogs, one of my favorites is Engadget. In fact, it is one of the most popular blogs in existence. This well-done spectacle covers all of the neat high tech gadgets that anger, analyze, amaze, and amuse us. It is like Popular Mechanics on steroids. It has everything from the latest multifunction phones to the latest in warfare robotics. Will there soon be armies of terminator cyborgs fighting our wars? How big will Big Brother get? Tune in to see where we are, and where we are going.
