Agriculture Secy on gun control: This could be a unifying conversation and Lord knows we need to be unified.

II think the Secretary hit on an important point that seems to be missed by most of the media. Because controversy sells media ads, too often there is a silent complicity between the media and those practicing the politics of division. I believe that most citizens are tired of the polemics and would welcome all parties coming together to solve the pressing issued that confront our nation.

CNN’s State of the Union with Candy Crowley  featured an interview with U.S. Secretary of Agriculture Tom Vilsack. Crowley spoke with Secretary Vilsack about guns in rural America, the potential for price increases on dairy products and more.

Nikon leads the way again, with the first “affordable” full-frame digital SLR.

For photographers, the latest-generation Apple MacBook Pro notebooks are mighty appealing thanks to their extremely high-resolution displays. All those extra pixels let you see more of your images on-screen at once without discarding the fine detail.
