Walter Williams, formerly chair of Economics at George Mason University says: "John Coleman, founder of the Weather Channel, in an hour-long television documentary titled "Global Warming: The Other Side," presents evidence that our National Climatic Data Center has been manipulating weather data just as the now disgraced and under investigation British University of East Anglia Climate Research Unit. The NCDC is a division of the U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. Its manipulated climate data is used by the Goddard Institute of Space Studies, which is a division of the National Aeronautical and Space Administration. John Coleman's blockbuster five-part series can be seen here."

"What would all the beneficiaries of the global warming hype do if it becomes widely known and accepted that mankind's activities have very little to do with the Earth's temperature? I don't know but a lot of people would feel and look like idiots. But I bet that even if the permafrost returned as far south as New Jersey, as it once did, the warmers and their congressional stooges would still call for measures to fight global warming."

Generational switchbacks can be humorous. I was shocked when my teenage son began listening to Grunge rock and Curt Cobain's angst-ridden music. I mean, c'mon. I do like my oldies but I'm also an inaugural Maranatha-Children of the Day-Daniel Amos-Love Song-Don Franscisco Christian music guy. Grunge rock? Yeckh.

The other night we went to dinner with my son and his family. Across the table, my grandaughter piped up and asked, "Grampa, would you get a Taylor Swift CD for me?"

Yeah, Taylor Swift. Cap'n Grungy won't buy his daughter a Country Western CD. That kind of music is just unacceptable. I thought of the time I complained to my dad about my mouthy teenage son. My dad laughed in my face. "You deserve it," he said.
