Studying and Growing

As I study the most common errors committed by beginning (and sometimes advanced) programmers, it becomes evident that although Firefox is still the best, most compliant and most reliable browser, more people continue to use a renegade browser like Microsoft’s IE. Perhaps, this is due to ignorance about the different browsers available. Perhaps, it’s because IE is what the ‘company’ uses and it’s easier not to make waves and follow the pack even though the leader of that pack doesn’t have a clue about where it’s going! Reminds me of what’s going on in DC currently. The Republicans continue to hold fast to the belief that the Democrats are taking us down a path straight to economic hell and so refuse to vote for or support any efforts made towards reconciling differences about an economic stimulus package presented by Pres. Obama. Seems they believe that they hold the only true and rightful answers about how to solve the economic disaster we find ourselves in. If that’s the case, why haven’t they written an economic stimulus package, presented it to the House and Senate and tossed said bill in front of the new Prez? If they truly believe that they are the only ones who can save our sorry behinds from the economic boogie bad guys, why are they so reluctant to step up and take action to do just that rather than play a game of Russian Roulette with economic disaster and world-wide depression? Could it be that they have no real answers and are scared out of their wits so they hide behind a mountain of rhetoric and stonewall the entire nation with platitudes about how only THEIR plan will work? ‘Methinks they doth protest too much!’ Stay warm and well. Spring is lurking somewhere out there.
