Why don't we just use the matter/ anti-matter engines that worked so well on "Star Trek"? Wind and solar provide only a tiny sliver of our energy needs and are projected to remain a tiny sliver into the foreseeable future. That's why private enterprise is in no great rush to invest unless government largess is involved. If there was potential there, do you believe investment bankers are opposed to making money? (And yes, there are investment bankers with no connection to "Big Oil.") Do the math (unless the lights are off in your office).

It was the Puss in Boots eyes.

If you've seen the "Shrek" movies or the spin-off cartoon starring the storybook cat voiced by Antonio Banderas, you know what I'm talking about. Whenever Puss in Boots really needs something from someone, he flashes these enormous kitten eyes that melt anyone in their path. Whenever my daughter really wants something, she tries to lay them on me, and I have to say, "Stop trying to give me the Puss in Boots eyes ... you can't have chocolate cake for dinner."

I knew Barack Obama was miserable...
