  1. Again, sigh, have some more. Two pieces that I wrote last night:

    http://getenergysmartnow.com/2009/02/26/will-directly-lies-again-and-again-and-again/

    http://getenergysmartnow.com/2009/02/26/wills-whining-defending-the-indefensible/

    And, sigh, about to write some more on this. There are, as you’d agree, far more pleasant issues to write on.
