The Noise Machine (04/15/2010)

The "1040EZ" version.....

You know you've made it in Houston when ChronBlog makes you the subject of a puff piece(filler) masquerading as journalism. Congratulations HPD Chief McClelland!

Modern Government 101: Bureaucracy OK's tax break, big corporation moves to take advantage of poorly thought out tax break, public officials (many of whom pushed for tax break in the first place) and citizenry (who don't understand the tax break but have fallen for the 'green' marketing plan) freak out. Repeat. Ad nauseum. (Addendum: Progressive types inform us that the problem was not the tax break, but that there are not ENOUGH government regulations preventing businesses that actually employ people from profiting from it.)

Why is it that every L'il Red column features a moment where she feels the need to inform us that a previous column, written by her, has generated some ground-swell of reaction? We get it Red, you're smart enough, you're good enough, and dog-gonnit, people pay attention to you. (Apologies to Stuart Smalley)

The battle for history will be fought on the edges. I often wonder what those who actually lived through historical times would say about the way we try and re-write it frequently to match current social norms? (Stripped of periodic context, history is nothing more than an adventure yarn.)

Dogs and cats, living together.

And finally....

Good stuff from George Will on Supreme Court justices and why the GOP should re-think "judicial activism".
