The Great Experiment: America

Philadelphia was hot during the summer of 1776. The city had no sewage system, the smell was atrocious, and to make matters worse, most people wore wool. There was no air conditioning, there were no iced drinks, and there was certainly no relief for the members of a fledgling, somewhat disorganized and

Solar power’s quiet revolution

In 2003 my county’s sheriff’s department applied for a grant, in cooperation with the school system, to buy a solar powered warning sign. It flashed a warning to drivers entering a school zone to slow down.  They’re common place now, but I remember asking myself if it was possible for a few solar panels to provide enough electricity to keep the

E. W. Jackson tapped into the soul of the new Virginia GOP

A couple of weeks ago I wrote a column about a long shot candidate for the Republican nomination for Lieutenant Governor: E.W. Jackson. It was an enjoyable piece to write.

There is nothing canned or carefully crafted about this guy. A former Marine, Harvard Law School and Harvard Divinity School graduate and now preacher turned politician. He says what he means, doesn’t mind
