I try to write about things that are interesting and different from the stories of the day and week because you can find those from all the talking heads on your tv and the droning voices on your radio or podcast. So I just decided to add my thoughts on the season all at once. These ponderings won’t be in any particular order but they will all be here, that I assure you..
Le Conseil de quartier du 9e Pigalle Martyrs invite une fte le 27 mai, de 14h 19h, autour de la fontaine Saint Georges. Une jolie place qui a retrouv sa fontaine et surtout son eau, malgr des accidents de circulation bien malheureux. Les collisions avec les platanes, on connaissait ; avec des fontaines, avouons que cela est plus rare.
So they saw a kind of pretty solid rock pedigree there [laughs]. And then they saw me onstage in front of 12,000 people and realized that’s what we want to include in the band, and that’s how we want it to go. And so when they came to their cataclysmic clash, they saw me as the solution, I suppose, and I’m glad that they did because I enjoy being in the band.
My wife has worked for 5 different non profits and foundations. Shit like this happens on each of them. There are always times of drama. Democrats are demoralized, and have little incentive to turn out next year. The teabaggers will turn out. If this is how the Obama camp thinks we can energize the base by promising them a health care pony for $5 to the same Democratic Party that is home to the likes of Baucus, Nelson, Lincoln, Lieberman, and the rest of the obstructionist gang then we’re in for a world of hurt in 2010..
Him moving into the right lane is actually dangerous for him and counter productive for literally everyone. This is because he will have to slow down to match traffic in the right lane (which will subsequently cause a big chain reaction of braking in the left lane) and carefully squeeze in between two cars at 70 MPH just to let the asshole pass where he will be stuck in the same situation because again, there are a shit ton of cars in the passing lane going the same speed as him all driving close to eachother. They are not just going to magically disapear.
Two more went by before a design for the memorial was finalized. All the while, 1 WTC, the only building on the site that would reach the heights of the Twin Towers, was little more than a gaping hole in the ground. As the years passed and the delays mounted, it was impossible not to wonder, What’s taking so long? And worse, Have we lost the capacity to rebuild?.
