My review of a NASA video about Juno mission to Jupiter
My psychology is different than most of the movie going public. This trailer, about NASA's upcoming Jupiter mission, has been touted as a great breakthrough in NASA public relations. Good Hollywood appeal, but for me, it just adds to my anxiety level. It ...

Oil train going through Bellingham. Who remembers the Northern Tier Pipeline proposal?
Unlike the coal trains that carry coal for export to Asia, I hear that the oil trains rumbling through Bellingham are serving the Pacific Northwest market. Bringing oil to our local refineries from places like North Dakota. Mostly for consumption locally ...

Trump worries that his wall of political baggage will effect his court case
In my book, whether one can be defined as a racist , or not, is kind of a window dressing issue. An issue of image and terminology. Being mean spirited is the real problem. Congressman Paul Ryan has stated that Trump's comments are racist while Mitch McConn...

Will north leg of Boulevard Park Walkway ever be built?
While Bellingham residents are, for the most part celebrating the likely death of a coal port that was proposed, near town, the extension of Boulevard Park "over water" walkway may be dead as well. Lummi Indian concern about tidelands and fishing habitat i...

I think KUOW is better off not spending all that money to buy KPLU
KPLU Radio, in Tacoma, is to remain independent from Seattle's KUOW. I'm glad to see this. Not because I listen to KPLU, but because I listen to KUOW. KUOW was planning to buy KPLU, but Friends of KPLU was able to raise enough money to buy the station on it...

Grieving for the people in Orlando Florida
There definitely does seem to be a problem of intolerance and violence within Islam. A higher percentage of intolerance in Islam than other traditions. A factor that can't be whitewashed. At the same time, it wouldn't do much good to get into a comparison b...

Look to Congress, rather than the president, for taxing the rich
It would be nice to have a president pushing for higher taxes on the wealthy, but wait a minute, it's Congress that levies taxes. The president can only recommend, as far as I know from what the constitution prescribes. Congress passes the tax laws. Who get...

Wide income gap and unhealthy lifestyles buffet Obama's well intended attempt to increase access to healthcare
I don't really agree with the slant of this opinion piece , but it does bring up some hard truths about high costs and insurance plans pulling out of Obamacare. My take on it is that medicine, in America, is too expensive. The Obamacare program has been a...
