I've Been Rather Busy Lately...
which is why I haven't been blogging. The wife, myself and the kids are all sick, so I'm pulling double shifts trying to see that everything gets done. In between working and tending the ill, I've been reading little tidbits here and there; here's some links to some interesting little morsels:

- Daniel Pipes has a good piece on why the developments in the middle east should be applauded with some caution: A Neo-Conservative's Caution.
- Remember the "dot com" bubble back in 2000? James Grant has an interesting op-ed on that subject, and why rosy predictions for the future may be premature: Five Years Later and Still Floating.
That's my score, anyways. To the Commonly Confused Words Test

I don't usually boast, but I'd say the results speak for themselves:
You scored 86% Beginner, 86% Intermediate, 87% Advanced, and 83% Expert!
You did so extremely well, even I can't find a word to describe your excellence! You have the uncommon intelligence necessary to understand things that most people don't. You have an extensive vocabulary, and you're not afraid to use it properly! Way to go!
My test tracked 4 variables. How you compared to other people your age and gender:
You scored higher than 99% on Beginner
You scored higher than 99% on Intermediate
You scored higher than 99% on Advanced
You scored higher than 99% on Expert
I've always joked to my wife that I have an excellent command of the english language...
