As we learned so clearly during Holder's tenure at the Justice Department, intramural "investigations" do not work. They should not be allowed in the institutions that underpin our society and depend on our trust for their credibility. 
No disciplinary action taken against the officer in the 20 citizen complaints.

Respect Uncertainty. Beware of cognitive biases, especially confirmation bias.

It's not easy to pull me out of a "developer's trance" when I'm slinging code but I stopped typing and sat upright about a minute into this song when Charity Rose Thielen's vocal entered the track. What a great voice.

I tried to read one of those "Demand" letters that students are now sending to college administrations. After a few paragraphs I gave up and decided that watching this video would be a much better use of my time.

Krugman parades around for six years cheering an "economic recovery" that saw $80k jobs replaced with $30k jobs, or not at all -- labor force participation currently stands at a 38 year low -- and he can't see the reason for the despair? I can think of two reasons he can't see the obvious; 1) he lives in a self-deceiving fog of ideology, 2) the brim of his enormous asshat restricts his view. If I took 10,000 gallons out of a 20,000 gallon pool and then put 10,000 quarts back in, he'd probably write an Op-Ed casting suspicion on the people that think the pool's not full.

I thought it was sad that so many folks seized up the "750 dollar pill" to 1) criticize the "free market" and 2) call for more regulation. 

#facepalm

Point 1: if you are going to "criticize" the "free market", please seek to understand what the term means first. The behavior you mean to criticize is "rent seeking" and the manager in question is a rentier. 

Point 2: before you call for more regulation, understand the role of the current regulation and its contribution to the problem/s.

Criticizing the "free market" and calling for more regulation because you are angry about the '750 pill' is like calling for a fifth wheel on all cars because you saw one guy driving 95mph down the highway. So please stop it already.

A friend brought this article to my attention. This election -- #worstpresidentialelectionever  -- is so messed up that the best strategy right now is to take your laughs where you can find them. This story has some interesting perspectives and priceless quotes.
For voters fed up with politicians, a Trump vote is the ultimate protest.

Here's to the "holy shit" realization that Camille Paglia is probably one of my "nearest neighbors."   How does that even happen?

I am an "old school" kind of guy that usually goes to barbers. But today I went to Amore. Sam and Kym were very friendly. Kym did a wonderful job cutting my hair, educating me about some hair products -- turns out that Dial soap, my old standard, is not an official hair care product ; - ) . I had a lot of fun and they are highly recommended!

We were driving across Wyoming in late March when my son smartly decided that we needed to stay in another a corporate motel/hotel like we needed a hole in the head. So he got on his iPhone and started looking for hot springs. He's bright, he knew he was going to have to get mom to sign off on this side-trip, so he found and suggested an old hotel with some historic charm. Once he started to read the reviews out loud, we almost decided against making a reservation. That would have been a mistake! We enjoyed our stay a great deal. We were there in the off-season, everything was charming and slow, and maybe that helped to make it fun. We had lovely conversations with the entire staff, the owner Gail, and the chef (who is well trained, I am sorry I have forgotten his name). Is the building old? Yes. That's the point! It's an historic old building and it has its charms -- and shame on the people that stay there and don't find them! If you are looking for the Waldorf; well, you are not going to find that. But if you realize this is Idaho, and you are looking for an interesting place in an interesting little town with some bonus hot springs thrown in, this place will work just fine. We did eat in the hotel dining room. The review about 'the worst food' is three years old (and I cannot imagine the current chef worked there then). Yes, the menu can seem a bit pricey in these little boutique places but it is part of the experience. We bumped into the chef, we discussed the menu, he made recommendations and they were all very good. The owner filled in for someone that needed the night off and it was fun to talk to her about the hotel. She recommended a nice regional whiskey for me at the end of the meal. In peak season, when the place is full, they probably need to adhere to a stricter level of discipline; but we had arrived late, settled in late, and ate dinner late. They graciously extended their "soaking" hours for us so that we could enjoy the hot springs as long as we did so quietly. We appreciated the personalized give and take that occurred. So if you have reasonable expectations and prefer things charming and interesting rather than perfect, I think you will like this place. We sure did. I should also mention that our dog was welcomed as well and we would happily stay here again.

I had to the pleasure to fish out of the Bend/Sunriver area for four or five years. I cannot say enough good things about Fred Foisset and The Hook. He is a top notch guide, proprietor and human being. If you are visiting the area and need a guide, he's your man. If you live in the area and need a good local fly shop, he's your man. He doesn't have customers, he has friends. If you are in Central Oregon, The Hook should be your fly shop, particularly if you want to explore the magnificent still water opportunities in Oregon. 10/10.

Recently moved to Boulder. I brought them my beloved Wilier Team Izoard. They installed compact cranks, a new cassette on a new wheelset and a new chain. They fixed a few other issues and problems. They explained and priced everything clearly before the job and called me when an unanticipated issue arose during the job. They did first rate work and the bike rides perfectly. I had to wait about 10 days to get my bike into the shop but they did all the work in one day and it was worth the wait. About 6 years ago - when I lived in Seattle - I ordered a pair of hand-built wheels. I had posted a question about wheels on a cycling forum and the reply from this shop was so straightforward, informative and lacking in bullshit that I asked them to build wheels for me. Those wheels are still true and ride great. Vecchios is a no-nonsense, high competency shop that does the work right.

Just relocated to Boulder. Stopped in to get my fishing license and bearings. A first rate experience; these guys are passionate and care about what they do . . . no doubt that includes catching 100s of fish when they are on the water, but it also includes taking care of you when you are in their store. Stop reading reviews, go to this shop.
