I agree too. I mean, I don't believe in stuff. I don't need a leader to tell me what not to believe in. The only place where it would be nice to be organized is in a political context as a counterweight to religious influence in government. » 9/12/14 2:48pm Friday 2:48pm

We get them in Boulder too. They show up with their dogs and their smelly clothes and camp out on the pedestrian mall panhandling. Most of them are crust, or anarcho punks who want to 'not be a part of the system' while simultaneously mooching off of the people who are. In other words, while some of them have… » 9/12/14 2:27pm Friday 2:27pm

This is exactly what I do. I've had three trips of over 20 hours this year (six really, if you count the return flight) and somewhere between hour ten and 15 you just start to get gross. I always sit on the aisle so once we're a few hours in I grab my sweats and comfy shirt from the front pocket of my carry on (that… » 9/10/14 5:02pm Wednesday 5:02pm

Personally, I think the Market Basket case is an anomaly, but I think it should serve as a lesson to all the armchair free market economists out there about the perverting influence of the intense focus businesses have put on shareholder value over the last 30 years. Market Basket was a perfectly profitable company… » 9/04/14 4:57pm 9/04/14 4:57pm

As a pizza veteran, no. All Pizza Hut pizzas are made from frozen discs soaked in oil (when I started working for Pizza Hut the Big New Yorker and the pan pizzas were still mixed fresh daily, but they phased that out over the course of my employment, now everything is frozen—even the 'hand-tossed'). At least Papa… » 8/28/14 7:39pm 8/28/14 7:39pm

It is bullshit. My grandmother grew up in the 20's and 30's in Chicago. She told me that teenagers were constantly destroying the seats in her father's movie theater with their pocket knives and that he had to carry a gun when he took the trolly home at night. Eventually her mother made him sell the theater because it… » 8/19/14 3:28pm 8/19/14 3:28pm

Serious question: was Florida always this fucked up or has the decline accelerated in recent years? I mean, sure, when I was a kid we were wallowing in crime, drug violence and racial tension but at least that kind of crazy had a source you could trace. Now it seems like the whole state is straight batshit. Even my… » 8/10/14 11:16pm 8/10/14 11:16pm

This is a bar where women are not allowed to buy bracelets when they have beer busts (buy a bracelet and drink as much beer as you want during a certain period). I volunteered to serve beer at one of the beer busts as part of a fundraiser and I cannot even begin to tell you how many times I had my ass and even my… » 8/04/14 10:33pm 8/04/14 10:33pm

Exactly, I see no reason to force him to delete the tweet. Kick him off or don't but if he has a complaint, let him bitch and let management decide what to do about it. If the only reason for pulling him off the plane was to make edit his social media account, it seems like this was more about proving a point than an… » 7/24/14 2:35pm 7/24/14 2:35pm
