If I titled this blog “Joy Covey, RIP” it is likely that no one would look at it because they probably don’t know Joy Covey by name. Last week, Joy Covey died at 50 years old in a cycling accident – a collision with a car – in San Mateo County, California. Joy Covey was [...]
Here’s my interview with Gary Franchi for WHDT. The topic is Detroit and the city’s bankruptcy. UPDATE: WHDT had to change the link, so here is the working version.
For this post, it’s appropriate to start off with two quotes from the article: Child psychologists are being given a new directive which is that the age range they work with is increasing from 0-18 to 0-25. …”There’s an increasing number of adults who are watching children’s movies in the cinema,” says Furedi. “If you [...]
My podcast with Lew Rockwell on what’s really happening in Detroit.
Poor Miley is dragging the D down with her tale of her “Detroit Days.” As one Detroiter said, Miley “said she grew up in Detroit for no logical reason.” Pretty much everyone else has jumped on this let’s be really into Detroit right now bandwagon, one more can’t hurt anything.

Joel Stein once wrote a great piece in the LA Times that I am sure had him on the receiving end of thousands of hate mails. Your kid doesn’t have an allergy to nuts. Your kid has a parent who needs to feel special. Your kid also spends recess running and screaming, “No! Stop! Don’t [...]
I may be able to one-up LewRockwell’s post in terms of a story about being mugged by the gang of thieves writ large. William Davidson passed on in 2009 with a net worth of $3 billion. He is the founder of Detroit-based Guardian Industries, and he owned the Detroit Pistons, the Detroit Shock (WNBA), and the [...]
Travis Holte sent me this video along with the message, “What? Reason didn’t interview you for this piece???” Travis has an amazing eagle eye for these things, and I shouldn’t promote Reason’s take-offs on my anarcho-Detroit culture since they have never cited me while conducting their imitation of my take on the ground-up, voluntaryist Detroit [...]
This article is only worth a visit because this topic is so worth noting that it is so unworthy of our attention in the long run. This article, “Why Vegans and Paleos Should Stop hating Each Other,” is written by a vegan because only vegans care about this irrelevant tripe. I do not diss the [...]
