I’m just old enough to remember when the USA was not only known for, but proud of things we make. As I was shoveling the driveway yesterday in zero-degrees (F), I got to thinking
Shining light on our faith, politics and culture.
In January of 1984, Steve Jobs unveiled the Apple Macintosh publicly for the first time to a packed house at the Boston Computer Society.
