 American Taxation - A Primer for Internationals (February 19, 2011 at 10:33 AM )

 Knee-Jerk Censorship against Intelligent Design (September 16, 2009 at 3:54 PM )
Recently, David Klinghoffer had a great post on how Darwinists pressured people to remove an interview with Michael Behe, the brilliant author of Darwin's Black Box. Fortunately, saner heads prevailed. I can understand why Darwinists are afraid to let people...

 The Future of Medicine – Hopefully (January 23, 2007 at 9:41 AM )
Hats off to Dr. Robert Berry who is almost single-handedly trying to revolutionize the practice of medicine in the United States. For instance, he refuses to accept any payment from insurance companies. He does this out of principle, as anyone...

 Socialized Dentistry (December 04, 2006 at 11:49 AM )
When my academic friends promote socialized medicine, I always ask them why they think the government will do a better job than the free market. The reply is invariable one of two responses. Either they have more blind faith in...

 Free Credit Report (October 10, 2006 at 4:59 PM )
Under current fair credit legislation, all Americans have the right to ask for a free credit report once per year. This is an expansion over the old policy of only getting a credit report if you are denied credit. I...

 Rebels Without a Clue (February 20, 2006 at 1:27 PM )
On February 7, the student council of the University of Washington voted against a resolution honoring World War II fighter pilot Col. Gregory "Pappy" Boyington. It was a close call – the vote was actually tied, but Senate Chair Alex...

 Trivial Pursuit 2030 (September 27, 2005 at 2:04 PM )
"For a red tile, what is the Dewey Decimal system?" Why might the Dewey Decimal system be the answer to a trivia question? At least some libraries are no longer using it. My university's library is in process of converting...

 Free Real-Time Space Simulation (November 11, 2004 at 4:01 PM )
I have had a review of Celestia on my desk for weeks, if not months, and have yet to make time to download it and try it out. So, I am going to post about it before I test it....

 The Perfect Politically Incorrect Gift (March 18, 2004 at 3:23 PM )
Last year, I made a promise after reading a funny column by Mike Adams. He is one of my favorite columnists and has earned a permanent link at my roundtable (under Court Jesters). He is a politically incorrect tenured professor...

 Reading Between the Lines (March 01, 2004 at 8:48 AM )
Imagine you are on the State Board of Education. You are facing a controversial vote. Should you vote to allow three new charter schools or not? The teachers' union and some parents are quite vocal about their disapproval. Sure, the...

 The Importance of Tenure (January 28, 2004 at 12:27 PM )
I have some concerns with tenure. For those of you unfamiliar with the tenure process at American universities, let me give you some background. Professors are expected to teach, provide service (to their department, school, university, and/or community), and perform...

 Thoughts on Homeschooling (May 08, 2003 at 5:16 PM )
Anne Wilson has shared some of her experience in homeschooling and it is worth the read. Since she uses blogspot, her archives don't work at all. Look for the May 7th, 2003 post at 9:27.Update: Anne wrote me back and...

 Education and Self-Esteem (April 28, 2003 at 1:15 PM )
Before I discuss a paper I recently read, let me give you some background on how professors generate articles. In theory, academics are in the business of creating knowledge. Rightly or wrongly, most professors at "research" (i.e., better funded) schools...
