Indianapolis, IN–I’m still at Indy. When I got done writing yesterday’s Ramble, I did my usual pre-trip inspection of my truck and found that I had oil coming from one wheel seal. This is a possibly dangerous situation, with fire or possibly a lack of braking power being the upshot. At the very least it […]

Bruce McQuain, this morning at Q&Q: Well there’s an agreement on the Generational Theft Act of 2009.  The squishy middle has capitulated. As expected, just enough Republicans have signed on to ensure its passage.  Names?
