Musings on Website "Improvements"

Seems as though almost every time a website is "improved", the user suffers. Examples: Google gmail, Blogger, and the Emerald Isle weather report. Maybe the changes are better for the hosts, or advertisers, but they have been made more difficult for users.

Thoughts on Hypocrisy

Some have claimed that Sen. Scott Brown is being hypocritical in opposing the Affordable Health Care reform legislation while his 23 year-old daughter benefits from it by being on his health care insurance. I say just the opposite. Isn't it principled to vote your conscience even though you would lose a benefit? And I doubt if those opposing the Bush tax cut failed to take advantage of its reduced tax. So I defend Brown on this, while strongly supporting the election of Elizabeth Warren.
