In the most recent of days, we learn that AOL and the Huffington Post have joined forces to the tune of 313 million dollars paid to the Huffington Post, and additional Millions to Arianna herself, plus Arianna Huffington is to take a leading role in the AOL hierarchy.
I question Arianna’s real role, Is it truly a metamorphism from ultra Conservative activist, to a left wing dissident mogul or is it all in the name of Entrepreneurism. One expects that many people, in their youth (not all) vacillating from one position to another, it is part and parcel of maturing, but Arianna was no spring Chicken when she changed sides. I do not believe anyone could accept her statement that the right had fooled, blinded, and bamboozled her. Her long history of involvement from her Cambridge days forward, would contradict those statements unless she could claim stupidity ….Which I seriously doubt.

If you have noted that DVD’s don’t look as well as you remember, it’s not a memory problem. When DVD’s first came out they were pitted against VHS tapes. The big claim for DVD’s was picture clarity. The dpi of those early DVD movies was 720. This was a slight improvement over VHS.
Later as DVD supplanted VHS it was not to long until HD DVD’s came out and DVD players that upgraded DVD’s to near HD. This was not what HD DVD and the following Bluray wanted so the dpi of DVD’s was lowered to 480dpi which can’t be upgraded. Now DVD’s have a poorer image quality than VHS tapes.

Why Grandpa carries a gun
PEOPLE ASK WHY? Why Carry a Gun?
My old grandpa said to me ‘Son, there comes a time in every man’s life when
he stops bustin’ knuckles and starts bustin’ caps and
usually it’s when he becomes too old to take an ass whoopin.’
