I wish the peace movement in US/Europe could engage and transform areas like Mali, Yemen, Af/Pak, and Malaysia more effectively to reduce the use of drones in so many places around the world.

Vox Populi / Re: Al Jazeera Network to buy Current TV
« on: January 03, 2013, 09:20:20 am »

Al Jazeera may actually increase the credibility of Current as a news organization.  Some of their U.S. programming outshines bigger cable outlets like CNN and MSNBC.

Related to the point of Spike and Reg's history, has anyone ever done a "Six Degrees of Separation" game (or "Kevin Bacon") with Reg as the focus.

It would be amazing to see any aspect of that network explored.

FB didn't monetize effectively at the IPO.  Still trying to figure out its tactics.  If/when it does .... then Apple and Google will have real comp.

A Panther/Cage buddy movie might be the best action flick ever.  Who would play the lead roles?

Vox Populi / Re: Emancipation Proclamation on view at National Archives
« on: January 02, 2013, 02:54:15 pm »

January 21, 2013 should be one of the greatest days of celebration in my life -- Inauguration, Dr. King's birthday, and the 150th anniversary of the Emancipation Proclamation.  "Let Freedom Ring," indeed.

So good to be back in the congregation.  Paster Reg, deacons, hope yall been doin well.

For newer folks, I used to be here under my typical webname "wgreason" and departed when the discussions motivated me to focus on political issues in my community for a couple years.  I pledged to come back after I had elected Senator Barack Obama twice (carrying Pennsylvania), published my two books, and built my new business.  With those five tasks accomplished, I had to come back and rejoin my friends here.

As always, for folks interested in making the most of educational opportunities worldwide, please visit my first website (

For people looking to start new businesses or grow existing ones, please complete the short survey at my new site (

It is so wonderful to rejoin the community.
