All the big airplane manufacturers plus companies like Honda and others have been diligently working on small air taxis that can fly point to point with little or no runways. Pilotless and electric, these planes will reduce the cost to the point that for many domestic trips, it will no longer be necessary to take a road trip to get to a large airport, for these new air taxis can land anywhere, carrying just a few passengers. Such airplanes will make Hillsboro as accessible as Chicago.

  • New technology brings new problems
    Monday, March 23, 2020 6:23 PM
    There have been two catastrophic events caused by airplanes in this century. The first is 9/11 when some individuals bent on destruction, even at the cost of their own lives, attacked the United States with airplanes. The second is this winter when airplanes were inadvertently used to spread a hither before unknown virus all over the world. On a macro scale, these airplanes did a better job of spreading this virus than a hot-air hand dryer does in a public restroom (and that's saying something!).

  • A time of abject sorrow

    We’ve been harmed, and the harming is not over. No one can tell us when the damage will end, for like the virus, the panic has taken on a life of its own.

  • All we have to fear is fear itself
    Friday, March 13, 2020 10:56 AM
    What is striking to me is how upset people can become because of a little change in their routine. There is little to be concerned about here, in my opinion. To quote another president, FDR, “all we have to fear is fear itself.”

  • 'Fixing Hillsboro' through infrastructure
    Saturday, March 7, 2020 10:01 AM
    Hillsboro needs highway access in order to attract substantial manufacturers. City and county administrators have been asleep for decades when it comes to fixing this problem.

    When it comes to telling us what the Democrat Party’s real end game is, Sanders is Paul Revere. You blew the schedule, Bernie, but we are indebted to you for your honesty and acts of exposure of the real intent. Thank you!

  • Surviving cancer, Part 3

    Getting the right medical team is important, no matter where they are. Go to the best team you can find – you don’t have a cold. The American Cancer Society can help with travel.

  • Surviving cancer, Part 2
    Saturday, February 15, 2020 10:25 AM
    It was time to go see Dr. Winton again. He took a look at me, ran some blood work and said he wanted me to get a PET Scan. One was scheduled about five days out while we were there in his office (since I have started down this journey, they have built the Winship Cancer Center on campus and all exams are there). Dr. Winton, obviously a doctor with some clout, started calling around and found he could get me in the Emory Midtown Hospital to a PET Scan machine that afternoon. So, Laura and I headed to midtown. I had the scan and they told me to not leave, wait for a few minutes.

  • Surviving cancer, Part 1
    Sunday, February 9, 2020 10:31 AM
    On Friday, Feb. 11, 2000, 20 years ago, I received a call about 4 p.m. from a person whose name I do not remember, on staff at Emory University Hospital here in Atlanta, Ga. He told me the results of the biopsy on the lump on my neck had come back and I had cancer, Diffuse Large B Cell Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma.

  • The art of selling is a different world in government
    Sunday, February 2, 2020 9:13 AM
    What genuinely puzzles me is people are willing to give up the power of purchasing for some sort of perceived security blanket from government provided services. I don’t want to do that. I want to buy as many of the goods and services as I possibly can in a free choice environment.
