Second Hand Smoke

In 1992, the EPA released a study stating that 2nd Hand Smoke was a Class A carcinogin. In '97, a NC judge ruled that the study was not preformed correctly.
Where do my rights end and yours begin? How can studies mislead people? Does smoking even help?

Practical and CGI Effects in Movies

Older movies used a lot of Practical Effects - minimal computer intervention to create the image. Current day movies use a lot of CGI - Computer Generated Imagry.
What's the best way to create the image to show the story? Is there a good balance? Where do we need to have all of one or the other?

Going for a Sunday Drive

When's the last time you went for an aimless drive on the open road? What benifits might we get from driverless cars? What might we lose with driverless cars?

Speaking American

All across the UK there are different dialects of English. Here in the United States, we may speak English, but I believe we speak a different version of it.

All You Need is Love

I recently finished watching the Netfilx Docuseries, "Wild, Wild Country." A story of Rashneeshpuram, a commune built from scratch in the OR countryside.
How great of things can we build when we work together? How destructive can we be when we feel we're under attack?

Voting Rights

Where did our votings rights start? Where are they going?

Republicrats and Democins

Judging the Book by its Cover

"Judging a book by its cover" is an age old question.  How does it apply to us today?

Byproducts of Energy

What happened to people talking about strip mining? What about the effects of dams? Lithium batteries?

Border Securities

During the Great Governmental Shutdown of 2018, I discuss the main topic of it: The Wall.
There are a lot of displaced, well meaning people in impoverished places of the world. But also, in those areas, are people enriching themselves within illicit activities. Where do we figure out to go?
