THROUGH THE ENERGY LOOKING GLASS: WHO SPEAKS FOR THE POOR?
By L.R. Wallis, Executive Director, Citizens for Total Energy
Sometime between dinner and the Milton Berle show on Dec. 8, 1953, this fervently democratic nation was astounded to learn that its president planned to give away America's most closely held national secrets at the height of the Cold War.
The time had come, said former soldier Dwight D. Eisenhower, who had led the Allied forces to victory in Europe during World War II, for the United States to beat the swords of atomic weaponry into plowshares of peace.
Just curious whether anyone uses Foursquare, and if so, what utility does it serve for you?
I'm thinking of installing it because I see a few FB friends using it and it looks like fun. Does it serve any purpose beyond simply fun? (I have no problem with simply fun, btw.)
It seems like the idea is that you install it on your phone, and whenever you want to let your friends know where you are, you send a note on it and the application pinpoints your location by GPS, the name of the place (e.g. restaurant, park, subway station, whatever) and you write a comment about the place or what you're doing or eating or drinking or playing there.
They removed it after they got complaints, but luckily, someone was on their toes and got a screen capture of a homophobic remark the Canada-Israel Committee posted about Libby Davies on Twitter.
Davies' goofy views must be denounced - Province ed reminds Libby mouthy lesbians aren't wanted in #Gaza

Well, I'm not surprised. I just experienced it myself. Here's my story:
I won a $250 gift card to Best Buy. I was thrilled, because I've been wanting a good digital camera instead of the cheap point-and-clicks I've been buying up to now. I wanted one with really good zoom, etc. So I thought, I'll put that gift card toward a decent camera. Not high-end, just not low-end.
