Looks like we might have a new GM sooner rather than later!

Personally, I'd be a fan.  The only candidate I wanted more than Gamble was Dorsey, and only b/c I wanted a little bit of the GB approach.  I think Gamble would be an excellent fit though.

How about you all?

Interestingly, I was just discussing the question of whether the Tea Party and the OWS movement could get along. A couple of quotes from the article to whet your appetite:

“The Tea Party and Occupy movements disagree on many, many issues,” Occupy Richmond’s Thursday statement said. “This should not stop all Americans from proudly standing together against government abuses.”

Richmond Tea Party spokeswoman Colleen Owens said on Friday that the group “never really had any kind of beef with the Occupy people.”

Sorry but I think the tea party is still drinking some laced tea or something. ..

One of these days (and likely soon!) we're going to look at the combination of a peaking resource + wind as a replacement for traditional intermediate power sources.
Are the dramatic price reductions in wind a game changer? According to the DOE's 2010 wind technologies market report “Wind Turbine Prices Have Declined Since 2008 and Will Yield Lower Project-Lev...

An amazing piece from a professor at Cal-Berkley on why she chose to participate in the OccupyCal movement and what she learned (and what we all need to be thinking about) in the aftermath of her arrest.

Glendale AZ Police Seek Your Help in Finding Jahessye Shockley

On Tuesday, Oct. 11, shortly after 5 p.m., officers responded to a call of a missing child at an apartment complex in the area of 6800 N. 45th Avenue. A 5-year-old female, Jahessye Shockley, had wandered
away from siblings at her residence a little before 5 p.m. possibly exiting out the front door. When the mother arrived home and found her child missing, she immediately called police for assistance.

Jahessye is a Black female, approximately 3-foot-5-inches tall, 55 pounds, with black hair and brown eyes. Jahessye has long hair with a ponytail. She was last seen wearing a solid white T-shirt and jeans. Glendale Police detectives have been searching the area in an attempt to locate the child. Phoenix Police air unit and patrol units are also assisting with the search.

h/t: +Tejas Richard & +Denver Louis
It matters that Jahessye Shockley is black because despite statistics showing that two-thirds of all missing children's cases are children of color, the face of the missing child in America has long b...

Great article that we should all take to heart...

What happened to grace? To "it's just a game"? To "thanks for a great season"? Fans are lashing out at their team with the kind of vitriol reserved for Court TV villains.
Rick Reilly says much of the reaction to the Patriots' loss is out of line.

Well, every time a Boston area team loses to a NY area team there's drama.

E PLURIBUS UNUM!
Introduction
Ex-Libertarian. When not hanging out with my wife I'm following sports (Jets, Mets, Knicks); reading; or trying to find my home in today's political climate.  I'm hard to classify...I'm neither "right" nor "left".  I believe in freedom, but also believe that we have a portion of our society who has shown themselves incapable of using their freedom responsibly.

As far as I'm concerned, there's very little difference between the street corner crook and the wall street exec who flaunted rules & helped up us in today's mess - they're both criminals and they both should have been dealt with as such.

I don't want the government to baby sit us, but I DO want them to protect society against ALL criminals, not just the poor ones.

As for this medium, to me G+ is all about getting connected - finding links/information I didn't know about, sharing links/information others might like, and mostly discussing news/politics/sports/whatever.

My only rule here:  be nice!  I LOVE getting diverse opinions, so I'll never censor anyone so long as they play by the one rule. :D

And finally...I would hope it goes without saying, but all opinions expressed here are mine and mine alone...they in no way reflect the views of any organization I may be affiliated with. :)
