Overhead in Seattle

That title could be a misnomer. It’s not really overheard when one person is screaming loudly enough to be heard for blocks. Still I was fortunate enough to witness a man loudly breaking up with his girlfriend after he caught her walking down the street holding hands with her ex-boyfriend. Somewhat shockingly the girl was […]

An Obama Nation?

The media and blogosphere is a-twitter with the latest Swift Book campaign by the uber-right. This one, a delight play on words that is supposed to align with abomination. Historically, discourse in politics has never been at a high level, and every generation feels that theirs is when things start to get break down. I’d […]

Golly green

What would you do when you are stricken with despair at having missed the chance to see the Spam Museum and you see a sign inviting you to see a 60′ tall green giant? The answer is obvious, follow the directions. He sure is big and green. If you’re interested in the places where the […]

It’s been a long time…

What once was (and shall remain hidden in the depths of the Wayback machine), now is back again. I’m off to drive across the badlands, the pantheon of our presidents, the glorious home of the Denver Broncos, through a field of salt and wind up in Seattle. Should be a fun trip, and what better […]
