For many reasons, mostly political but partly ethical, I do not use Google, Facebook, Twitter. They practice corrupt business policies, while targeting conservative websites for censoring, facts repeatedly confirmed by news stories and by my sense that Facebook has taken action to prevent my readers from recommending Behind the Black to their friends.
Thus, I must have your direct support to keep this webpage alive. Not only does the money pay the bills, it gives me the freedom to speak honestly about science and culture, instead of being forced to write it as others demand.


Please consider donating by giving either a one-time contribution or a regular subscription, as outlined in the tip jar below.

You can also support me by buying one of my books, as noted in the boxes interspersed throughout the webpage. And if you buy the books through the ebookit links, I get a larger cut and I get it sooner.

An evening pause: Thanksgiving and Black Friday might be over, but there still is Christmas dinner!

    Is that a reference to WKRP Cincinnati? me thinks it is, too funny! I see a job opportunity in saving garages from burning down on Thanksgiving day using high technology, too bad it will require a commercial certificate to fly real airplanes!

    Yes, one of the best WKRP episodes.

    I’d like to think that there will be too much political blowback for the pilot’s license requirement to hold, but we’re talking about a nation that voted for Obama twice.I could support mandated drone operator licensing similar to a driver’s license. There’s a world of difference betweeen operating a car and a semi-truck, just as there is between flying a drone and an airplane.
