Inching closer to a much faster expansion of Nashville's knowledge economy, which depends on this fundamental currency.
One step down, two to go. Big thanks to the city for bringing Nashville one step closer to Google Fiber.

I could probably create a similar one about parenting. Sometimes, it seems we make life harder than it needs to be. I'm very close to executing the personal finance index card.

I'd contend that approaching literary forms of any media encourages the improvement of critical and analytical thinking skills, but I'm not sure I'd offer much opinion (or evidence) that it was somehow morally imperative to pursue something beyond "mass" taste.

An interesting late-night Independence Day read. Excerpt: "The problem I have with socialist utopias is there’s some kind of committees trying to soften outcomes for people. I think that imposes models of outcomes for other people’s lives. So in a spiritual sense there’s some bit of libertarian in me. But the critical thing for me is moderation. And if you let that go too far you do end up with a winner-take-all society that ultimately crushes everybody even worse. So it has to be moderated."

One can own a gun, like guns (in a pro-gun way) and still be for common sense gun control.
