It’s already starting to pay off. It’s already looking pretty good, though with the snow this week, I’ll have some catch up […]

I like Professor Althouse’s blog. However to do make to claims to understand the good professor. While I am not certain, of where the professor stands, I do find this two recent posts of her amusing. Item, gender feminists find that reality does not conform to gender feminist theory: 142 legal secretaries surveyed and not […]

Harrisburg, PA– As this is written, I’m at the TA in Harrisburg. I was supposed to be over by Albany by this time, but an equipment failure…. (flat tire) lost me four hours of drive time.  When things go mostly right, it’s easy to bitch about the small stuff. When there’s a bigtime fail… well, […]

(East Syracuse, NY)— Came in from Carlisle, PA last night, and spent the night at Binghamton, NY. I can’t say I’m overly impressed with this truck; the steering feels a little vauge, especially when the roads are wet. Past that, (and a lown out brake line on the trailer last night) things have been fairly […]

(Irving TX)– We’re in the shop for some minor repairs, andI ran into another driver who was nice enough to allow me to use his laptop. A few casual observations of the world around me: Eric Massa:Yeah, I said to Donna the moment his resignation started breaking  that there was some hint of scandal going on […]
