I used to think time was the most limited resource. It's so limited that you can't even save it for later.

But there's something even more limited than time. It's your attention. Attention is a subset of time, therefore it's more limited. How you spend your attention is more important than how you spend your time. Attention is about focus and careful, thoughtful consideration. Unlike time - which can be broken into convenient chunks of 15 minutes - attention doesn't divide quite so neatly or easily.

Last fall, Los Angeles took a hard line on school nutrition. In an attempt to mold better eating habits in kids, the Los Angeles Unified School District eliminated flavored milk, chicken nuggets and other longtime childhood favorites.

But instead of making kids healthier, the changes sent students fleeing from school cafeterias. There have been reports of a thriving trade in black-market junk food, of pizzas delivered to side doors and of family-size bags of chips being brought from home. Garbage cans are filling up with the more nutritious food, even if kids aren't.

Ever since I was a young(er) man, I've heard about the coming wave of young voters who were ready to "rock the vote" and change the world.

Sadly, while this was predicted every four years, it rarely happened. The youth vote tended to raise their voices loudly for the media but failed to deliver on election day. That changed to a certain extent in 2008, though, when they turned out in fairly impressive numbers for Barack Obama. So are they gearing up for a similar showing in the coming year? At least according to one analysis, not so much.

Mitt Romney is just not going to cut it for many of Ron Paul's devoted legion of young followers.

Most of the Ron Paul supporters approached by Red Alert Politics Friday night at the Liberty Political Action Conference in Chantilly, Va., said they could not see many differences between Romney and President Obama. Their general consensus was that Romney is a weak candidate who has not effectively made his case. Libertarian candidate Gov. Gary Johnson seemed to be the choice of many. They seemed undeterred by suggestions that a vote for anyone other than Romney equals a vote for Obama as they exited the ballroom where Paul had just finished speaking.

The reading of the U.S. Constitution turns out to be a rousing crowd pleaser.

The last time I read the U.S. Constitution all the way through was almost fifty years ago, when I was a student at Swarthmore College. My roommate Marc Merson and I were at work on a one-act play (United We Stood); its premise was that an English literature professor had stumbled on the fact that the founding fathers had inadvertently signed the wrong document.

Marshall Fritz, the brilliant founder of the Separation of School and State makes it clear that when you homeschool you do not pay twice for your children's education.

You only pay one time, not two. Many public school math teachers will be confused already. Therefore, I will go slowly for those who teach math in the public schools: 1 is less than 2. The public school system was created for the state by the state. Whether or not one chooses to homeschool, one still must pay taxes to put others in a Godless, broken, education system. We might as well call it what it is however, and a public school tyranny funded by your family's taxes.

A couple years ago a family member called some of my uncles to investigate something. He informed them that while on his yearly family visit to Yosemite National Park he came across a new interpretive sign located by the Yosemite waterfalls.

He them called because he was surprised that he saw a photo of our ancestor Tom Hutchings on the new interpretive sign labeled as a Miwok. Tom Hutchings was a Mono Paiute who was the first mailman in the Yosemite Valley. Today many of Tom Hutchings descendents are situated in several Paiute tribes in California and Nevada. There are none of Tom Hutchings descendents in the Southern Sierra Miwuk tribe.

York University in Toronto, which has gained for itself the dubious distinction of being Canada's epicenter of campus anti-Semitism and anti-Israelism, is displaying once again the moral inversion that seems to have infected its student body and administr

The issue at hand is a November 16th visit to the York campus by British MP George Galloway, as the invited guest of the York Federation of Students. In 2009, Mr. Galloway had been barred from entering Canada due to his public support of and donations to Hamas, a group designated as a Foreign Terrorist Organization (FTO) by the U.S. State Department, Canada, and the EU, but a court has since overturned that decision and given Galloway access to Canada once again. Not everyone was thrilled with the prospect of having Galloway, who, according to wry commentator Christopher Hitchens is "100 percent consistent in support for thugs and criminals," arriving on the York campus to spew forth his rabid fulminations against Zionism, Israel, and the West.
