Xlibris has just convinced me to start an e-mail marketing effort for my book: Growing with America - The Fox Family of Philadelphia. I decided to revise my old website at Comcast.net as part of this effort and this is the result. I would be interested in any comments but realize that, aside from the book section - the website is still under construction.
I find the comcast.net site builder to be a mixture of good and bad. It certainly gives more freedom than the earlier version but still has its limitations and - most annoyingly - has the habit of failing to publish changes occasionally. Also the formatting capability is extremely limited. There is, however, an html editing capability that I've not accessed.
For those interested in a really good blog - go my son Justin's blog The Curious Capitalist. He is the economics columnist at Time magazine.
2013 - Justin is now with Harvard Business Review.

I listened to Sarah Palin's acceptance speech last night. If McCain scares me, Palin scares me more. Her energy policy is one of exploiting the environment and pushing global warming so that, I presume, Alaska will warm up.
She, and her kind, hope to take the United States back in time to 30 years ago. Things are different now. We need to look to the future and not to the past. Obama will do this. I had hoped that McCain would, too, but obviously not.
All this talk about experience is a bunch of hogwash if that experience has not led to a better understanding of the world in which we live.
