Unfortunately, they will probably look horrible in older browsers, like Netscape 4.x and IE 4.x. Moreover, many posts use MathML, which is, currently only supported in Mozilla. My best suggestion (and you will thank me when surfing an ever-increasing number of sites on the web which have been crafted to use the new standards) is to upgrade to the latest version of your browser. If that's not possible, consider moving to the Standards-compliant and open-source Mozilla browser.

Oh, Obama!

Barack Obama continues to shine as the most impressive politician that either party has produced in a long time. Read his Knox College Commencement Address.

Is there anyone else, who even comes close?

Re: Oh, Obama!

So the “Ownership Society” they call it? I guess I did it right in the target when by choosing the term “Physics Of Ownership” instead of Econophysics. Can I claim a patent?

Just wait till he goes to Washington and mix with the vultures. You will soon go back to being disillusioned again!

Mr. Obama Goes to Washington

We are talking about the Junior Senator from Illinois, aren’t we?

Re: Oh, Obama!

You couldn’t be any more right! There’s no one who even comes close to being able to bring the magnitude of potential change in United States Politics other than Barack Obama. Sure, Mike Gravel is gaining some traction, and Ron Paul is the phenomenon of the internet, but no one, not even Billary has been able to get the amazing numbers of grassroots supporters behind them other than Obama. 2008 will be a very pivital election for so many reasons, and Obama fits the bill in all ways.
