This seventh volume in the Waveform Politics series follows the continuing saga of the Bush II presidential administration beginning in 2006 and fast forwards to selections from my essays on... More > contemporary issues of the year 2009. I would like to say that the economic performance of 2007 and 2008 never occurred and that a few trillion extra weren’t added to the public debt for badly run foreign military affairs and corrupt mortgage, banking, insurance and assorted other Wall Street factors in the red. Yet the national debt was about 12 trillion as of this writing, and the ecosystem debt to the world is increasing with more carbon into the global sink. Even so these essays have a largely philosophical theme in the beginning. The presence of a non-Curly, Moe and Larry approach to government is an improvement, yet there is a long way to go to get a new good nationalism in the U.S.A. with a Herman Daley sort of renewable resources approach to living within our means.< Less

More > from one black 6th grader to the other was, “Well you’re black!” While that statement ended the argument it begged the question, “Why do our children continue to perceive darker skin with disapproval?” Also, and more importantly, “What can adults do to break this cycle?” Carved in Stone is Mr. Everett’s personal response to address the African-American child’s sense of self-hatred.

The search for high-speed passenger service began when the New York Central made history with the famous run of Engine 999. On May 10, 1893, the Empire State Express set the U.S. speed record of... More > 112.45 mph. With these roots, it is no surprise that the railroad continued to be interested in providing its riders with high-speed, high-quality passenger service. On July 23, 1966, the New York Central conducted another experiment to discover those qualities of track and roadbed that would allow it to provide improved higher speed service. This time, they put a pair of surplus jet engines on top of a self-propelled railcar. The result of the experiment was a new U.S. rail speed record that has yet to be broken. Hank Morris and M-497 pilot Don Wetzel bring us the exciting true story of those historic speed trials.< Less
