Heart dissections in science classes have always been a messy affair. For years teachers have cut open cow’s or sheep’s hearts to show students how they look inside, and, while students get to feel and see the heart, they can’t watch as it beats, because the animals are dead. They can’t see the individual heart strings or the finer details of the chambers, valves and veins because they’re all layered on top of one another. That’s about to change.

And this is what passes for a libertarian? More government involvement in our lives?

The US military risks relying entirely on Elon Musk’s SpaceX for military launches, swapping “one monopoly situation for another” if there are no changes to a new law on the use of Russian rocket engines, the US air force secretary has warned.

The Cleveland transit cop who attacked a woman after she pulled out her phone to record his unprofessionalism last month, slamming her to the ground before pulling out a knife and cutting her purse strap, forcing her pants and underwear down as he planted her face into the ground, then throwing her in jail overnight, was informed by his chief he had violated several departmental policies.

This is not enough. The officer should be brought up on assault charges.
Cleveland transit cop with a history of unprofessional behavior violated several departmental policies, internal investigation states.

Story
Tagline
Love learning new things.
Introduction
Dad, Consultant, Cornellian, traditional liberal (it's about free markets, free trade and free speech), avid reader and film buff, youth soccer, basketball, little league coach, tech geek, policy wonk, historian, SF lover, sports fan and even more which at some point I'll get to. I truly enjoy open, tolerant, frank yet respectful exchanges. Love learning new things.

I love to share all kinds of posts and have respectful, intelligent debates and conversations. While many posts will be related to politics or issues of personal liberty and freedom, you'll also find a fair number of other things given my wide range of, at times, eclectic interest. The main thing is to be respectful and have fun. Also, don't be afraid to moderate the comment threads on your own posts (I'm not). If people can't be polite and civil, don't be afraid to block them. Being open to conflicting and different ideas does not mean you have to accept rudeness.

Grew up back East in NYC, engineer and ROTC in college, though now live on the West Coast and have lived and traveled all over the world as a kid and an adult (if i can just get to Antarctica, I can nail down every continent). Member, Pacific Council on International Policy.
