The SlopeAlerts product has another feature, which is that in addition to getting an email-based alert, you can now alternately receive an alert to your phone via SMS. This is an important improvement, since it is probably easier to get your attention with a text than with an email in your inbox. Set up some alerts this weekend and be ready for the week ahead!

My Philosophical Evolution
Note from Tim: I received the email below from a man I have known for many years as a successful local businessman. He has kindly given me permission to repost it here, under the nom de plume of “Wise Observer“. I am pleased to post his first offering:
As a young high school then college student in the 1960’s, I was told I was a “liberal”. (OK, a classical liberal.) I was for a color-blind society, valuing individuals by merit, from my own experience. I was for freedom of association, freedom to choose, and personal responsibility. Sound and stable money, charity by choice from personal passion, upward mobility and equal rights under the law were my ideals. I was opposed to a military draft and foreign wars for the benefit of connected corporations and client governments. Peace & Love.
I questioned authority.
