At a New America Foundation conference on cybersecurity Monday, NSA Director Mike Rogers gave an interview that—despite his best efforts to deal exclusively in uninformative platitudes—did produce a few lively moments.

Nick Hanauer is a rich guy, an unrepentant capitalist — and he has something to say to his fellow plutocrats: Wake up! Growing inequality is about to push our societies into conditions resembling pre-revolutionary France.

Speaking of melting ice.... More proof: Study sees climate change in action in the air, watching carbon dioxide trap heat… in real time. The veritable smoking gun. A new study in the journal Nature demonstrates in real-time field measurements what scientists already knew from basic physics, lab tests, numerous simulations, temperature records and dozens of other climatic indicators. They say it confirms the science of climate change and the amount of heat-trapping previously blamed on carbon dioxide.

After managing to avoid being sent to Vietnam, I somehow got connected with some political folks in the 1970s, and worked on a few campaigns. It was fun, but more important was that it got me interested in Economics. in 1979 I married the most wonderful woman in the world. Nothing else even comes close. In 1981 I started a doctoral program in Economics at the University of Michigan. I then taught for a few years at Concordia University, and wandered into computers. Eventually this got me into Project Management. I enjoy my job, and project management seems to suit me. In summer I spend every spare moment in the garden, and in the winter I work on my Web sites. I also sing in the church choir, and love music of most kinds.
