Mr. Bush, you donít speak for me.

This really isn’t news, if you’ve been paying attention, but it looks like the NY Times has finally gotten the message.

This is an analysis of the Times’s very long article on the agenda of the Bush White House, and their rejection of facts, logic, and oh, pretty much all science.

Beliefs are one thing, but as President of the United States, you speak for hundreds of millions, distilled into one path of action. That does not mean “follow the will of the majority”. That does not mean “follow those who will pay for your re-election”. That does not mean “follow your own beliefs”. That means “find the best compromise for the best possible benefit of every single last citizen”. In my opinion, this administration has utterly failed to represent its constituency, and it must go.

It is time for all of us to stand up and say “Mr. Bush, you don’t speak for me.”

The Ketchup Conundrum

Filed under: — adam @ 9:27 am

This is a great article about why Heinz ketchup is the way it is, and why it dominates its space in the market. I love Heinz – nothing else really qualifies as “ketchup” for me.

(No word on the ketchup vs. catsup debate.)

Ooops, dart in your neck.
