The sound of (mostly) silence

Last April, I wrote an article called "Switching frequencies" about how local agencies were on track to meet federal emergency communication mandates.

Stop the virus of Chicago violence

For once, Chicago has beaten New York in a competition that the Windy City had no desire to win. Chicago ended 2012 with more homicides than the Big Apple. No cheers for that.

My love of science fiction, especially Star Trek, is well known to long-time readers. I have enjoyed every incarnation, from the original, somewhat campy series of the 1960s to the 2009 "reboot" movie by J.J. Abrams.
