Dell and Walmart Marriage

Walmart to start selling Dell computers per Reuters. Two of corporate America's greatest squeezers negotiate a deal. Those meetings must have been something. HT: Jeff Ward.

Re: Why Fred Thompson won't be Prez

Glad to hear from his supporters. I'm not sold but hope he gets in. Glad to know, too, that his supporters are up on this "internet thing."

Why Fred Thompson won't be President

His wife is what, about 20?

Ok, Wikipedia says she was born in 1967, but man [Update: and I should have said this before, rather than just implying it, she is "smokin' hot"].

In great company...

For those who know that I eschew the use of cell phones (especially my old college roommate), I happily join the ranks of Thomas Sowell, of whom it was said he was "the last of the Luddites."

Page 182 of A Man of Letters (linked here):

Incidentally, it would be a decade later [written in 1981] before I would finally begin to use a computer. Before then, a colleague at Stanford who was more up to date on the computer revolution called me "the last of the Luddites."
