Are you suggesting that show business is actually run by an advanced machine (rectangular and black) that was built by an unseen extraterrestrial species--and not run by humans? Whoa.

I rode my bike one day with Riordian during an AIDS fundraiser. You are right. He is a cool guy.

@Natzzzzzz If you can't snark about well meaning but ultimately meaningless slacktivism, what exactly are you supposed to snark about?

Having been employed for quite some time by a company that Google bought and almost immediately made disappear, I would just like to say DON'T GIVE THEM ANY IDEAS.

By Astigmatism on Wealthy Drug Dealers and Vulture Capitalists Will Soon Have the Housing Market To Themselves

@deepomega ARMS are happening again. We dipped an exploratory toe into the mortgage market a little while ago and three different mortgage lender told me that my best bet was a fixed loan up to the conforming limit and an adjustable-rate HELOC above that. Of course, as the prime rate has been 3.25% for years now (and the Fed insists they're going to do everything to keep it there for at least another couple of years), they may have a point.

By The Dependent Clause on How To Get Your Readers To Write Your Newspaper For You

This was a poignant thing to read. It reminded me a little of my days at a small-town newspaper in the late 90s in my hometown—which happens to be Grinnell, IA, home of Hayes' alma mater. At that point we still used film cameras and laid out issues by hand, so most of my shifts were spent in the darkroom or in front of the wax-glue machine we used to assemble layouts.

My boss and mentor there also died a few years ago, but he was a genius. Also a chain-smoker. Also an alum of Grinnell College.
