6/19/06 “Lane Courtesy”—what a concept

This post may or may not contain the following excerpt (or is it a summary?):

Via The Capricious Commuter: The National Motorists Association has declared June National Lane Courtesy Month. I’ve written about how Minnesotans don’t relinquish the left lane to people who come up behind them who are driving faster than they are. (Californians are even worse, and Wisconsinites are completely unpredictable.) So here it is: a group that […]

10/22/03 the Buffoon Governor Trifecta (TM)

This post may or may not contain the following excerpt (or is it a summary?):

It occurred to me, after the recall election, that very few people have probably experienced the Buffoon Governor Trifecta(TM) that I have. 1986-1999: Tommy Thompson, Wisconsin. 1999-2002: Jesse Ventura, Minnesota. 2003-?: Arnold Schwarzenegger, California. The mind reels.

10/29/02 a wretched weekend

This post may or may not contain the following excerpt (or is it a summary?):

What a wretched weekend it was. I’m just now getting over a week-old cold, one that took me out of commission Thursday when I attempted to call Californians about the environment. (I found it surprisingly difficult to work on the phone without my main tool of persuasion—my voice.) Much worse, of course, was waking up […]

9/28/02 lost, stressed, and homesick

This post may or may not contain the following excerpt (or is it a summary?):

“Welcome back,” you might say. It has been a scant seven weeks since I moved out of Minneapolis, not enough time to judge if it was a good decision. Honestly, I’m just as torn as (if not more than) I was before I moved. Of course, the four-day cross-country move was somewhat exhausting. Some of […]

7/13/02 I must be nuts

This post may or may not contain the following excerpt (or is it a summary?):

I have done squat on this site in the last month. Wow. Perhaps that’s because I’ve been preparing for this fact: I’m moving. Rather, I’m about to move. (More precisely, I plan to relocate in the near future.) This will be the biggest move of my life, from Minneapolis to the San Francisco area—Oakland, to […]

12/31/01 Top Ten of 2001

This post may or may not contain the following excerpt (or is it a summary?):

As this very strange year comes to an end, I believe it’s entirely appropriate for me to compose my year-end Top Ten List. I’ve decided to end the year focusing on the positive. Maybe I should break it out into categories, but I’m just too lazy. Lord of the Rings: Fellowship of the Ring twice […]

10/14/01 day 14 – it’s over.

This post may or may not contain the following excerpt (or is it a summary?):

Those negotiations turned out to be all that was needed to end the strike. The negotiators on both sides worked practically around the clock from 1 pm Thursday to 3 am Sunday morning. Tentative terms of the contract. We go back to work tomorrow morning. I for one am glad. [Now how to approach my […]

10/9/01 day nine on strike

This post may or may not contain the following excerpt (or is it a summary?):

Day 8, yesterday, brought a breakthrough of sorts: the state and the unions announced they are going back to the table Thursday 10/11/01. These sessions, I hope, will lead to an end to the strike…. though neither side seems as willing to give as they are to talk. We have given far more than the […]

10/5/01 What a day.

This post may or may not contain the following excerpt (or is it a summary?):

What a day. There was a huge rally at the Capitol (well, okay, 200 people or so, but quite a few considering [a] we left the picket lines fully staffed and [2] it was held at really short notice). It was great—we sang anti-Jesse Ventura songs and the Star-Spangled Banner, did some clever and appropriate […]

Day four, less wind, generally positive news. There’s still no end in sight, but we have the momentum.
