Disinformation Week

Read "Disinformation Week" reviewed by H William Stine


Disinformation. It's a word we're hearing frequently these days. Some people call Disinformation propaganda; some people with a straight face call it alternative facts. I call it pernicious lies. So I spent two hours defining and explicating Disinformation; and, most importantly, telling people how to protect themselves from it. JUST KIDDING! You know me. Instead, I ...

Baby Talk

Read "Baby Talk" reviewed by H William Stine


Taking baby steps—isn't that what I was doing in my driveway after the last snow storm? Out of the mouths of babes—isn't that why we put bibs on them? Sleep like a baby—I'm sure my audience can relate to that. Throw the baby out with the bath water—doesn't that just mean it's time to get your eyes examined? ...
