Oneanta, NY-  I’m set to deliver at Latham, NY in the morning. Sorry for the long time between posting a Ramble, but the internet connectivity is an issue again. It’s frustrating because I don’t understand WHY.  (shrug) Only one topic, today…. because frankly, it’s all I’ve had time to follow:   Iowa:Thanks to Art Smith […]

Sloatsburg,NY– I’m here after driving most of the day. A quick run from rochester to Bethlehem Pennsylvania, then over to Quakertown for a loadfew of paper towels. — Voting rights: Over at questions and observations, Bruce McQuain in his usual take no prisoners style … which, frankly I’ve always admired, proceeds to blow up the […]

Those who can, do.  Those who can not, protest.  Ace digs up this gem: Analysis of OWS Psychological Types Shows Rank and File To Be Lost Souls Looking To Lose Themselves In Something Bigger, and “Leadership” Animated By Need For Validation and Control This is probably not surprising to you, so much as it is […]

Carlisle, PA–After three highly unusual weeks of running to the west it appears as though I will be spending the remainder of this year running east.  That’s a bit more normal for this truck line.  Frankly, we’re experiencing a bit of a pre Christmas slowdown. I’m not worried.  I’ve seen this before.  From here, I […]

I have for a long time found Ann Coulter fascinating. Occasionally wrong, mostly correct.  I have several of her books on my shelves here.  I even carry one in the truck that I haven’t finished reading.  That said, it fascinates me that  Coulter who had nothing but derision for John McCain, thinks that Mitt Romney […]

Buffalo, NY– I’m at the Erie County Medical Center, dropping off some furniture that I picked up at Elkhart IN. A nice little stretch of the legs. I’ll be back at the yard in a few hours and ready for my next adventure. This trip out west is likely a rare event, but I must […]

Middle Village, NYC, NY– I’m back in Middle Village, awaiting an unload.  Hot down here today. I should explain my absence the last few days of last week; My truck broke down, and they had to put a new transmission in it. I suppose after 650,000 miles, it was time. The truck handles just fine […]

Mineola,NY– OK, enough, already. I’ve had my entire week rained out. We’ve actually got some sun mixed in with the clouds as this is written, but sheesh. ..   Anyway, I’m out on Long Island, again. Interestingly a lot of these places I deliver to out here are now on a first name basis with […]

Harford,PA Today I’m at the Flying J truck stop in Harford, along I-81. I ran from Rochester, down to Carlisle PA and am currently running up toward Albany. I got the antennas fixed on the truck last week, and so was able to take the emergency spare, that I’d put up, down.  It turns out, […]

Westbury Long Island, NY– David points out in this morning’s Scramble: …three years after Mrs. Clinton raised the issues and after months of the media claiming that it was legally impossible, Barack Obama finally  releases his long form certificate of live birth, from William Jacobson, Legal Insurrection: So much for our media, which has been […]

I’ve had an interesting week traveling around in the truck. Some of it, I ended up using someone else’s truck since mine was under repair. Lower miles as a result mean lower income, I suppose, but that goes with the territory. As of this writing, I’m back in my own truck, and it seems to […]

Krugman destroyed, David Burge destroys Nobel Prize winner Paul Krugman, from Iowahawk: The point being, I suppose, is that unionized teachers stand as a thin chalk-stained line keeping Wisconsin from descending into the dystopian non-union educational hellscape of Texas. Interesting, if it wasn’t complete bullshit. As a son of Iowa, I’m no stranger to bragging […]

Editor’s note: As this is written, (Edited, really) I’m preparing to go to bed. I have to leave at 3am for Southern PA from my western NY home, to make a 10am delivery. As such I really don’t have a bunch of time to write a new thought for this thanksgiving day. Fortunately, I have […]
