commented on Where the Republican "Suicide Caucus" Lives
It's an interesting result of gerrymandering, that these districts are so solid for their Republican reps, but increasingly out of step with the nation. They'be painted themselves into a nice, reliable, but increasingly alienated and alienating corner. I wonder if once the dust settles and the Republican party feel the overall national wrath that these marginal constituencies have brought upon them, that the gerrymandering tendencies might be brought under control a little?
commented on The Future of Solar Power in America
Take it from someone who has worked in the renewable energy field in China: they wont lead, at least not at the outset. They will fast-follow and once it's a mature and risk-free endeavor they may overtake the leaders. But don't expect them to be out in front for quite some time.
