Here’s a letter to the New York Times:

Dear Editor:

Suppose Uncle Sam orders you to raise by 41 percent the price you charge for subscriptions to your newspaper. Would you be surprised to find a subsequent fall in the number of subscribers? If you assigned a reporter to investigate the reasons for this decline in subscriptions, would you be impressed if that reporter files a story offering several possible explanations for the fall in subscriptions without, however, once mentioning the mandated 41 percent price hike?

Unless you answered “yes” to this last question, I wonder why you published Mickey Meece’s report on today’s record high teenage unemployment rate (“Job Outlook for Teenagers Worsens,” June 1). Between 2007 and 2009, Uncle Sam ordered teenage workers (who are mostly unskilled) to raise the price they charge for their labor services by 41 percent. (That is, the federal minimum-wage rose from $5.15 per hour in 2007 to its current level of $7.25 in 2009 – a 41 percent increase.)

Does it not strike you as more than passing strange for your reporter – assigned to help explain why teenagers today have an increasingly difficult time finding jobs – to ignore the fact that these teenagers are ordered by government to raise significantly the wages that they charge their employers?

Sincerely,
Donald J. Boudreaux

Donald's way of asking questions and making statements is overly complicated and annoying.

Nice cockies.

This ******* rain! I went to work and my yard was somewhat dried out from the flood the day before, I come home tonight and my headlights illuminate another lake, larger than the one before. My house basically has a mote now. I didn't even know it rained today, and I only work about 12-15 miles from my house.

After years my friends figured out how to get me high. Since I don't mess with illegal substances I smoked some **** called spice today. It hit me about 10x harder than nicotine did. I'm soft.

My friends smoked a 'fatty'. I can't share so I made my own bong out of bambo, a Gatorade bottle, and a reese's. Baller.

The beginning is a very delicate time. Know then that it is the year 10191. The Known Universe is ruled by the Padishah Emperor Shaddam IV, my father. In this time, the most precious substance in the universe is the spice Melange. The spice extends life. The spice expands consciousness. The spice is vital to space travel. The Spacing Guild and its navigators, who the spice has mutated over 4,000 years, use the orange spice gas, which gives them the ability to fold space. That is, travel to any part of universe without moving.

Oh, yes. I forgot to tell you — the spice exists on only one planet in the entire universe. A desolate, dry planet with vast deserts. Hidden away within the rocks of these deserts are a people known as the Fremen, who have long held a prophecy that a man would come, a messiah who would lead them to true freedom. The planet is Arrakis, also known as Dune.

Several holes have opened over the years, some as large as cars within tens of feet from the house. Was watching the rain water earlier after a very heavy 3 inches in 20 minute rain, drain from a pond in the yard. Even though it was already saturated, you could see lots of bubbles from certain places and it drained very quickly. Waiting for one to open under my garden.
.....

I do.

Old Butch
------------ --------- --------- --
John was in the fertilized egg business.
He had several hundred young layers (hens), called 'pullets,'
and ten roosters to fertilize the eggs.

He kept records, and any rooster not performing
went into the soup pot and was replaced.
This took a lot of time, so he bought some tiny bells
and attached them to his roosters.

Each bell had a different tone, so he could tell from a distance,
which rooster was performing.
Now, he could sit on the porch And fill out an efficiency report
by just listening to the bells.
John's favorite rooster, old Butch, was a very fine specimen,
but this morning he noticed old Butch's bell hadn't rung at all!
When he went to investigate, he saw the other roosters were busy chasing
pullets, bells-a-ringing, but the pullets, hearing the roosters coming, could run for cover.

To John's amazement, old Butch had his bell in his beak, so it couldn't ring.
He'd sneak up on a pullet, do his job and walk on to the next one.
John was so proud of old Butch, he entered him in the Renfrew County Fair
and he became an overnight sensation among the judges.

The result was the judges not only awarded old Butch the No Bell Piece Prize
but they also awarded him the Pulletsurprise as well.

Clearly old Butch was a politician in the making.
Who else but a politician could figure out how to win two of the most highly coveted awards on our planet by being the best at sneaking up on the populace and screwing them when they weren't paying attention.

Vote carefully next year,

the bells are not always audible.

Nice and humid too, a little low for FL though. It won't stop raining here. It's not continuous, but there's rarely been any sun.

So we went camping (tent) again last night. Steady rain from 7:30pm to 11:45pm. Im still wet. Vow never to go again(tent).

Passed on the Carbon Fiber Fuel bike.

Passed on the kayak. (for now)

Burning desire to focus on the MX-5.

It now needs:
new top or back window repair
diagnose front end popping (may be clutch related)
timingbelt and assosiated repairs
clutch (soon)
alignment

Alas, I am down to 225#. Last Nov 1 I was 258. At 6'3" I'm starting to look good, and I feel good. I'm not outta breath after beatin' on guts for 15 min.

I hope fairtax will be reallity one day.
