On Do you go to 'the cross' church?
I live near that church, but I don't worship Christ. I worship the wind. So I think I will take New Life did and erect a 60 foot tall wind power generator in my back yard without any input from my neighbors. I'm sure they won't mind, it's all part of my mission to make them more wind conscious.
See, it sounds crazy when I say it.
On Kwik Trip betting on compressed natural gas at Janesville store
Isn't one of the biggest benefits of CNG the fact that I can install a compressor in my house that will fill my car at home with the very cheap NG we have available in this area.
On Janesville declares snow emergency starting 3 p.m.
This policy seems very antithetical to Janesville's just park anywhere culture.
On Are you concerned about Internet privacy?
I don't worry very much about my internet privacy. What few concerns I have are held in perspective by the fact that information I give up out in the real world (like using my CC at a restaurant or giving my address to a business) have more potential to impact me than information I give out online. While online information can spread more easily, it also offers more protections against random interception than information shared online.
I still take strong precautions online, stronger than most, and probably much stronger than needed...
I always check that websites where I share personal information (even Facebook) use HTTPS (look for the lock symbol in the address bar. This protects me from random hackers intercepting information about me.
I use completely random passwords on all websites I use. I keep a password protected encrypted database of all my password on my desktop so I still only have to remember a single password. This protects me from having sites I use gathering information about me from other sites I use.
I secure my wireless network. A lot of people do not do this because they have no problem sharing their connection with their neighbors, but this is a bad idea since an unprotected WiFi broadcasts all traffic on your network unencrypted. It makes it very easy to gather information about you. It also exposes you to liability if one of your neighbors uses your connection to do something illegal. This protects me from information my neighbors or nosey passers-by may gather about me.
I use a web browser that keeps no history. This protects me from information my wife may gather about me. :)
I also use a private VPN server with no logging to anonymyze and encrypt all of my web browsing. This protects me from information that my ISP may gather about me.
All of these things are well within the abilities of a moderately skilled computer user. If you are not that, you probably have a grandson who is.
On Janesville doctor writes about faith
Issac Asimov made gazettefan's point much more poignently.
“Properly read, the Bible is the most potent force for atheism ever conceived.”
There's a lot of truth in that statement, which is why it causes so much fear and anger.
On Dealers face legal challenge with law impossible to obey
I'm confused. Is this article from the 1930s?
On Hospitalists are doctors who manage inpatient care
This "trend" has not caught on in most places the way it has at Mercy. Here I think the use of Hospitalists has more to do with shutting out other Primary Care Providers as a way to not play nice with other competing providers.
On Grade Tax
Bad metaphors make valid points seem trite and trivial. You've done conservative ideals more harm than good. Hardly what that point of view needs right now.
