Origin of Joe Stack’s “From each according to his gullibility, to each according to his greed”
Did I ever tell anyone here that my wife and I moved from New York City to Austin because we were tired of this airplanes-flying-into-office-buildings thing? Austin has had a few incidents recently.

Well, I just got home from the second day of the Defending the American Dream Summit (continued)
Defending the American Dream Summit – Day 1
I had a great time today at the Defending the American Dream Summit.
