Old School Alpha Asians

This past mid-term election here in the States brings to mind the saying about how the more things change, the more they stay the same. The issue of the role and size of government is being replayed again, with Newt Gingrich and the young turk Republicans having this argument with Bill Clinton back in the early '90's. Or FDR having to do battle with the Republicans over social security and managing the country during the Great Depression.

Honestly, I don't know how some of you bloggers out there can manage to keep posting worthy material for discussion and what not. Yet, I sort of hate to see this site slip away into the ether. It would be nice, though, if the burden to post fresh things did not rest with one person and if we can get other posts from the other…

Final Post

I'll keep this short and sweet: this will be my final post. If you're a long time reader, then I hope the posts and videos have inspired you in some way. If you're new to this blog, then I encourage you to explore all the material I've aggregated over the years. Should you find a video post that no longer works, let me know and I'll remove it.

@Mojo Rider,

Feel free to keep posting when inspiration hits. I've valued your insights, and I thank you for sharing them with us on this blog.
