Oh Florida, you were more adorable in the dangling chad days. At least you still have legalized witch hunting to fall back on when you have jailed all the unclean heathens.
A jury Monday found a couple guilty of having sex on Bradenton Beach after only 15 minutes of deliberation.

Yep.  Massive waste of money, even without any jail time.  But with significant jail time ... it's terrible injustice both to the convicted, and to the public (again, assuming the crime, and assuming no pattern of behavior).

Back in the day, I used Snopes.com. Lately, I find I am using http://quoteinvestigator.com/ more. So many false quotes that people blindly believe because they 'read it somewhere.'  Come on people, don't believe everything you read! </end_soapbox>

Your government in action. Is it for you or against you?
 
We've heard from General Motors, Cleveland Cavaliers' owner Dan Gilbert, and the pundits. But how do you feel about Gov Rick Snyder signing the "Anti-Tesla Motors" into law?

http://blog.caranddriver.com/unplugged-michigan-governor-signs-gm-supported-anti-tesla-bill-into-law/
General Motors, the largest U.S.-based automaker, released a statement today supporting a last-minute addition to Michigan House Bill 5606 that would effectively prohibit Tesla from selling cars in the state using its preferred business model, or even providing customers with information about its cars. It’s the classic David-versus-Goliath tale, where Goliath wants the state of Michigan […]

Nearly half of all CEOs launch a reorg during their first two years on the job. A recent Bain & Company study of reorgs found that most had no effect, and some actually destroyed value. 
 
How do you organize your company to make better decisions? Our archive pick of the week takes a look at how to make a reorg actually work.
Forget the org chart—the secret is to focus on decisions, not structure.

Water, air and sand. Huh, who knew?
The global demand for plain old sand is so high that illegal mines are everywhere, and mafias around the world are killing for the stuff.

I made sugar pie last year for the holidays and it was delicious. Guess what I am making this year? Thanks +Alton Brown​ I can't wait to see you in Seattle soon!
 
Yes, there is such a thing as sugarplums and they really are good eats.

This is a beautiful collection of music theory materials.
 
A fantastic resource for aspiring musicians.
If you've always wanted to learn more about song writing and the structure of music, but don't know where to start, this free online book is filled to the brim with pages that make understanding music theory easy.

Small park space and activity center sandwiched between busy streets and car dealerships. 3 stars because even a small green space is better than more run down buildings.

It is a pub that will do in a pinch. It has to do because there isn't much for options in the Fairwood area. The decor feels dated, the service is reasonable and the food is typical pub fare. Generally, it bores the hell out of me. I have been a few times but dont intend to make it a destination. The place clearly has some regulars.

Jacks is in a strange location next to a vet and a waxing business, in a strip mall. It has a good layout inside for a sports pub with lots of TV's, arcade games, a modern juke box, etc. It is clean and well maintained. The bar is tucked in the back and the rest of the floor space is open. The atmosphere is dimly lit and slightly noisy. About what one should expect from a sports pub. The beer was standard Northwest selections, nothing to write home about. Menu was longer than I expected and the appetizers were hot and fresh. Again, typical pub fare. Service was friendly but slow. There was not much of a crowd, so I am not sure where she kept dissappearing to. Plenty of free parking. Nothing remarkable here but it is a good place to hang out at if you are in the area and looking for a beer.
