My inspiration for this week was an amazing, fun filled motorcycle ride in the East Mountains with my artist friend, Jacqui. The weather was perfect, sunny and warm. I've been telling Jacqui that I really want a motorcycle, so she offered to take me for a ride on hers.
It's been at least 20 years since I've been, at least that I can… Continue

Daylight Savings time is practically synonymous with Home Improvement Season and that time is here again. We recently tore out a bunch of concrete in our back yard and needed a legal way to dispose of it. You can't throw it in your trash can, nor can you take it to one of the city's Convenience Centers. There's an even cheaper option: Take it to… Continue
The title of this post is a “Feightnerism”. He came up with it when he worked for the Farmers Home Administration as a bankruptcy law clerk. He worked there one summer as a law student. He watched the government waste millions on farm loans. Of course the government was also in the business of supporting farmers through government largesse. Farmers farmed the government first, the soil second.
Later, the Author became a healthcare lawyer and watched the farce of medical providers… Continue

ok, after my dining debacle at El Patio, i decided to find some place that knows how to cook new mexican or mexican food, cuz i was still jonesin' for something more authentic. lo and behold, i found it. on the corner of monroe and central. when i moved here in 2002, it used to be a mom and pop place, typical breakfast and lunch menu. then it transformed into a place that served cuban food, (sorry, never tried it) and now it's Guichos, a mexican restaurant. the interior is painted in bright… Continue
In past posts, the author has written about economic issues that presaged the current recession. The causes are legion. Collapse of asset values, subprime mortgage collapse, decline of manufacturing capacity, the hamstringing of the regulatory mechanism, general malaise, the failure to release the “Beavis and Butthead Christmas Special” on DVD.
Two of the most controversial artifacts in the collection of the National Museum of Nuclear Science & History moved to their new home today. I took a ton of pictures and VIDEO! The whole process was much smoother and simpler than I imagined, and it is such a relief to see them sitting in the new space - alongside other artifacts that the museum had in storage all this time (like the… Continue
