The EU

Google says the EU requires a notice of cookie use (by Google) and says they have posted a notice. I don't see it. If cookies bother you, go elsewhere. If the EU bothers you, emigrate. If you live outside the EU, don't go there.

Just Say No

The Atlanta Journal Constitution has this item on former House Speaker Newt Gingrich exploring a run for President in 2012.

Speaker Gingrich, whose brilliance puts him in a class with former President Bill Clinton, should not run.  Based upon some of his actions over the years it appears he does not have the self-discipline to be President.  Being President is not about him, it is about us.  Better than President Obama?  Yes.  As good as we deserve?  No, that self-discipline thing.

Better than Obama? I don't think so.

Joe and I exchanged EMails (because I know Joe and not because I can get to him via his comment—comments come through with a no-reply EMail address) and he gave me an updated URL for the article he was citing.

To which I say, yes better than Obama (from a policy point of view), but definitely lacks self-discipline.

But, views differ.  WRT former Speaker Gingrich, my wife and I differ.

It's more than self-discipline that he lacks.

"His first marriage, to his former high school geometry teacher, Jackie Battley, ended in divorce in 1981. Although Gingrich has said he doesn't remember it, Battley has said Gingrich discussed divorce terms with her while she was recuperating in the hospital from cancer surgery."
