  • PASS Summit 2012, Day 1

  • Political Calculus - PASS Nominations

    Pardon me, sir. Do I have a dog in this fight? Do I have a dog in this Fight? If I did, it'd be the Warner Brothers Barnyard Dog. After my term of service on the PASS board of directors ended in December of 2009, I fully intended to stay far, far out of the way.  It's an intention that I've largely been able to fulfill,excluding the ...

    Whiners and Whingers Get Wedgies Yes, I deserve a Wedgie There I was, just a couple weeks back, whining that I wasn't getting tagged by friends when a new meme comes out.  Sure enough, when my friend, Paul Randal (blog | twitter), starts a new meme with me as one of the first handful of people tagged, it's taken me a full ten days to ...

  • What Direction Do You Choose?

    You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself, any direction you choose.
