I’m going to tell you something that my Republican friends are loath to admit out loud: climate change is real.

Legal concerns around Pinterest: Advice from a social media attorney

from Communications Conversations by Arik Hanson

I thought I’d take this chance to approach said attorney to answer some of the questions I have about Pinterest and brand usage (as I’m sure many others do at this point) and open up the discussion a bit.

2nd Congressional District — candidate, yes; CD support, ???

from mnpACT! by Dave Mindeman

In a nutshell, I am talking about money. I truly believe that if the powers that be in Washington thought that the 2nd Congressional Distict was really going to show some powerful support behiond any particular candidate, then the DCCC or Unions or other groups would absolutely jump on the bandwagon and enter the fray. But the 2nd District has been notoriously lacking in monetary support.

There’s really no way avoid the conclusion that these numbers are flat out distortions and fabrications.

Ed Spencer…. the total package
