Out with the old politics - and in with the new old politics....

WASHINGTON – New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson says he is withdrawing his nomination to be President-elect Barack Obama's commerce secretary amid a grand jury investigation.

Obama said in a statement Sunday that he accepted Richardson's withdrawal "with deep regret" but that the governor was putting the nation first to avoid any delay in filling the Cabinet post.

Inkscape Boardgame Extensions 1.0

I decided to upload version 1.0 of the boardgame Inkscape extensions now. Changes since last release are too many for me to remember (most things are just fixing bugs for the countersheet and hexmap generator effects). The biggest change is the ability to specify colors and other SVG attribute values in the spreadsheet file (for advanced users only, and nothing you really ever have to use).

Victor Krulak Rest in Peace

Last year was a bad one for having to say goodbye to people who contributed to the life of this country and its culture. But the other day someone, a hero and not a celebrity, passed, and he should be remembered.

The man is General Victor Krulak, one of the outstanding Marine officers of the twentieth century. He was a warrior, a patriot, and a man with a fully developed pen and the courage to use it. In addition, in 1995 he must have been the proudest Marine in history, when he saw… Continue
