It’s that time again…

1) Not sure I feel about the Trayvon Martin case. I think Zimmerman probably handled the situation very poorly and may be culpible. It sounds like the Police department may have done the same. I think the smear campaign against Martin for his school suspension is absurd. In the [...]


This is going to be an exciting year for many reasons. First, while I assume the worst it is always an exhilarating experience to watch our political process play out. Yes, I think Rick Santorum is the epitome of everything that is wrong with politics. He’s a crooked, biblical literalism believing, nut job. Yet he [...]


1) I continue to be disappointed by our elected officials.
2) While I loved UFC 132 I was bummed to see Wanderlei Silva get knocked out so quickly against Chris Leben. I’ve been a fan Wanderlei since early 2003 and it’s tough to watch your heroes get old in the fight game.
Speaking of fighting, this unofficial [...]

Regarding the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant

As I would have expected I’ve had a couple of people ask me my thoughts regarding the nuclear power plant in Japan. In case you’re a new reader I’m a Nuclear Engineering Officer in the Navy with six years of reactor work and training.
It’s somewhat hard for me to address this issue because I have [...]

Read and take to heart.

I just wanted to share one of my all time favorite quotes. Before I do let me say that Tovah and I are enjoying Oregon, we had a great dinner with John and Lynn last night and are excited to attend an Oscars party tonight!
“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who [...]

Are you prepared?

Gas prices are rapidly climbing over the unrest sweeping across the Middle East (bummer because I’m about to drive to California). Our bankrupt government and states are trying to pass union-limiting legislation that has protests erupting all over this country. When gas prices go up food prices go up. When food prices increase more protests [...]

Blind Man Store

Near where I work in the shipyard is a small food store. Prepared sandwiches, soft drinks, snacks — mostly unhealthy stuff with a few gems thrown in. All in all the store isn’t very remarkable save one thing: the owner and usual cashier is completely blind. I find it so inspiring that he works there [...]

Clark tells the world what he thinks 2

Regarding Guns: To come near completion of my meager arsenal, after serious study (Boston’s Gun Bible is AMAZING), I want two different .308’s, probably a M1A Socom 16 and a Remington VTR. Toss in a 9mm Kel-Tec SUB-2000 and I pretty much have all my bases covered.
Regarding Superheros: It is such a good time to [...]

Clark tells the world what he thinks

Regarding my new job: in a word? AWESOME. This past week I was there learning how the guy I’m replacing teaches a class I’ll be responsible for teaching every two months. Beyond that, I finished all of my check-in requirements (each time a military service member transfers there is a lot of admin/medical/dental stuff to [...]
