How to Get the Goverment to Buy You an iPod

So it looks like the government can't even manage something as basic as employee purchases using government-issued credit cards. You've got federal employees running up tabs for iPods, luxury dinners, and dating services, and $2 million worth of purchased stuff unaccounted for. In the grand scheme of our $3 trillion federal budget, that's not a lot of money.

U.S. Gets Points For Telecom Policy

Turns out all the criticism of U.S. broadband policy (Obama mentioned in in a recent speech) may not be warranted.  According to the New York Times, "European researchers say that the Internet infrastructure of the United States is one of the world’s best and getting better." How does the U.S. stay ahead despite somewhat lower average connection speeds?

Will Democrat candidates talk about retirement crisis?

As the Democrat candidates for president spend more time in Pennsylvania these next couple of weeks, it will be interesting to see what they spend their time talking about. So far, the campaign has focused quite a bit on identity politics, character, change and experience.
