Walkin'

President Obama found himself in a pajama party of Republican bedfellows during a campaign stop at our state fair recently. The odd pairings of beach blanket bingo were brought about because Obama supports a renewal of subsidies for wind power generation.
It puts Obama in bed with none other than Republican President George H.W. Bush, who signed into law The Production Tax Credit (PTC) in 1992. Besides subsidizing wind, PTC also promoted other renewable energy sources including solar and geothermal.

Food For Thought

It was sometime in the ’60s. We were living in a big house in Iowa City’s Goosetown area. The house didn’t have central air conditioning, but my husband had bought one window unit for our bedroom– the justification being that he needed to have a good night’s sleep in order to be able to work the next day. The kids and I, he reasoned, spent most summer days out of doors anyway and, on really murderous days, we could go to the park for a swim in the pool, or splash in the spray from the hose in the back yard. He, on the other hand, had to stay in his office and work. His air conditioned office.
