I'm tired of whiny politicians trying to manipulate the public like a five year old tries to manipulate his or her parents when they are afraid they won't get their way. This isn't about an ice cream cone, grow up.

I don't know if you read Robert A. Heinlein as a boy? In his future histories , some with Lazarus Long, we're in what he coined: The Crazy Years. This is the last presidential election—then The Prophet came to power. 
He gets perfect marks with me.

Great article about at&t employees' efforts to retrain and grow to be competitive in the high tech climate.
Randall Stephenson, the chief, sees a need to retrain his 280,000 employees — like his older brother, who fixes the lines — to compete with the likes of Google.

Really interesting article on how the music industry has changed, by the numbers.
With the music business in an especially volatile state right now, Marc Hogan puts the industry’s woes in perspective by ...

Only one of the four selfies I took at the party entryway wasn't blurry. Unfortunately, the lighting still wasn't enough and the photo is very noisy. :/

REI 20% coupon and an oversized dividend from an REI credit card, plus a bit extra cash. What did you do with your dividend?

An entertaining (if perhaps a tad less precise and supported than I'd like) op ed explaining why Trump is the least bad of the Republican candidates at the top of the primary.

The park plans on allowing cattle to graze on park lands to reduce the risk of fire during the summer, hence the gates and fences. I just think they put them too close to the trail in certain spots (eg, Rocky Ridge).

They also created a "service trail" between the pueblo parking lot and Hidden Springs Trail. It would be nice to have that open to the public.

Does anyone remember the famous photo inside a train, maybe in Asia, where the soldier is looking at the photographer with a hint of alarm? Lexi, the dog on the right, reminds me of the guard in that photo.

If you have a link to the soldier-on-train photo, please reply!

Just watched a radio play of "It's A Wonderful Life", broadcast live by KPBS (radio) from Spokane's Bing Crosby Theater and stage directed by my big sister!

What does this statistical result say about the "land of opportunity" and the "American dream"?
 
The authors speculate that inequalities in educational and medical access in the US may amplify poverty's effects.
Country-specific effects may help solve a piece of nature-vs-nurture puzzle.

Decent flavor and selection, but way overpriced

Good food with options that feel healthy, reminding me of trips abroad with a "California cuisine" sensibility. Small but worthwhile beer selection. Helpful and courteous staff, and open Sunday night. These features make Bantam grill stand out in southern New Hampshire. Close enough to Keene, Manchester, Concord, and Nashua to be worth the (very pretty) drive. Not just another Italian restaurant or American grill. The atmosphere inside is nicer than the strip mall-like location suggests.

Nice folks and reasonable rates for this area. However our room, 103, was pretty tired. The carpet looked so dirty that we didn't feel like walking barefoot to the bathroom at night, and some light switches had so much accumulated perma-grime that I used my elbow to actuate them. There's no sound insulation from the upstairs neighbors either, but that's pretty common in older lodge-style hotels like this one.

Great food and fantastic employees. The cashew ginger gravy was surprisingly good.

The best sushi we've had in the bay area. The saba was more tender than we've had before. We tried sea trout and sea eel for the first time, both were great. The waiter service was mixed, the sushi chefs were all very nice. I'm starring it and planning to go back.

This is one of my favorite parks. We hike, walk our dog, and mountain bike here regularly. It's a great place for exercise, and you can easily get 2000 feet of mountain bike climbing in 8 miles of riding, with hills left over in case you have anything left over! After rains the trails are muddy with soft clay and unsuitable for mountain biking (and sometimes a pain for hiking), and I wish they posted trail closures online. The views are fantastic.
