Remind me: When was the last time someone won the presidency while being investigated by the FBI?
It was Party on Campus Week at College Insurrection.

It was quite a week for politics in higher ed. Who would you say has the best party on campus?

I posted this video on College Insurrection today and I’m re-posting it here in the hope that it’s seen by as many people as possible.
This is Patrick Moore, a co-founder of Greenpeace. I especially like the point he makes about the term “climate deniers” because I find it offensive for the exact reason he cites.
Thanks to Ed Driscoll for linking at Instapundit.
If you’re a fan of the 1986 horror/sci-fi classic film “Aliens” you’ll probably enjoy this behind the scenes look at production. It was one of the most successful sequels ever.
There are multiple versions of this video out there but this one is high quality. I think the original is over three hours long so this one is a bargain at 97 minutes.
So here’s the deal…
I’m now writing for several different sites and American Glob is the only one I don’t get paid for. On an average day, I have 8 to 10 posts to write before I can even think about posting here.
I’m still going to blog on this site but obviously, the volume is going to go down at least for now because there are only so many hours in the day.
Here’s an update on what I’ve been up to lately…
