Buzz Aldrin Says ..

The climate’s been changing for billions of years, and there’s no evidence anything humans have done has changed those natural cycles.

I Like Trains

This story about the ernormous cost (over $1,000 per taxpayer) of the US’ proposed fast rail system is a few days old. And I like trains. Oh, I said that.

I looked always forward to reading his next column, and will miss them, and his …
