Cambodia: The Times They Are a-Changin’

 

Cambodia’s sixth general election came and went on July 29. Unsurprisingly, Hun Sen, the world’s longest ruling prime minister (33 years and counting) and the ruling CPP won in a landslide. The result was never in doubt given the crackdown on civil society and independent press leading up to the election. This culminated in the […]

Censor Alex Jones If …….

 

@jamesmadison recent post on the company Google titled “Be Evil”, reminded me of the censorship and removal of talk show host Alex Jones. I’d never heard of Alex Jones until I stumbled on his Fox Network radio broadcast starting at 12:00 noon in my area during the 2016 presidential campaign. I am self-employed and drive around […]

Quote of the Day: Masterful Character Sketching

 

“She sprang it on me before breakfast. There in seven words you have a complete character sketch of my Aunt Agatha.” — The opening lines of Educating Young Gussie by P.G. Wodehouse

Wodehouse is doubtless familiar to many Ricochetti, but perhaps there are some among us who have not yet encountered the magic of the master. With these opening words, Bertie Wooster’s Aunt Agatha is perfectly captured. Even readers who have just met her for the first time understand completely the kind of woman she is. Energetic. Firm. Early rising. Filled with plans for improvement that require instant and utter submission. In short, a horror.

The Trump administration is different than the Clinton or Sanders administration would have been…

 

The Trump administration has been heavily scrutinized, with good reason. It’s easy to find something to criticize, especially for those who fear disruptions to the status quo in Washington. Trump seems to create chaos, sometimes seemingly for its own sake. I’m starting to think this may be a rational approach. This chaos sometimes leads one […]

Gender-Identity Politics: A Primer

 

If you’re striving to keep the “logic” of gender-identity politics straight in your head, here are a couple of helpful hints to keep that blossoming SJW from flinging his spaghetti noodle arms at you: 1) The notion of binary gender is construct (i.e. fantasy) invented by the while male patriarchy to confine biological “females” to […]

Preparing for a Job Interview

 

Back in the early 1990s, during one of my job-hunting periods, I sat down and wrote a brief article summarizing some of the advice I’d learned about interviewing. I think these ideas are as valid now as they were then.

It’s always a good idea to research your prospective employer before interviewing for a job. You might be surprised how much of a difference it can make to go into an interview knowing, for example, the company’s name, or perhaps what it is they do.

Exploratory Bite

 

This week, a man in Cape Cod was bitten by a shark and is in critical condition. The untrained, like myself, might be tempted to use the phrase “shark attack,” but the experts tell us it is not an attack. In fact, “It’s nothing to get alarmed about.” This was not an attack but an “exploratory bite.”

OK, I get it … sort of. If the shark had wanted to eat the man he easily could have. Here on the Cape, we’re seeing more and more what Great White Sharks are doing to seals right off the shore.

For Phil Turmel: I Was Right!

 

I mean, thanks so much for dinner last night, @philturmel! Almanzo sat on a footstool by the stove, an apple in his hand, a bowl of popcorn by his side, and his mug of cider on the hearth by his feet. He bit the juicy apple, then he ate some popcorn, then he took a […]
