Reader Says We Don’t Do Enough

I received an email from an LRC reader today. This type of theme is not too common, but I occasionally get these letters. It reads as follows: The Word of God teaches me it’s foolish and useless to tell a cold and hungry person to go forth, be filled and warm, unless I give them [...]

Multiple Book Disorder

Joe Queenan has written a wonderful article on the Wall Street Journal making fun of himself and his addiction to reading books. Joe’s a bit of a Luddite, so I don’t agree with him about e-books, but he is a superb writer. I also found the embedded interview with Queenan to be quite amusing.

Martyn Ashton, the prominent bicycle trials rider, took a $16,000 Pinarello road bike out for a spin. In fact, an unusual spin for the race bike. He rode it like he stole it in this amazing display of verve and cycling mastery.

The Words of Rocco

Sometimes, folks who are well-read and “educated” can over-analyze and think too much into everything. At times, we don’t see the simple truth through all of our philosophical meanderings. We look for complexity where there is an absence of adornment. We expect too much of life and appreciate too little. We are so concerned with [...]

They No Longer “Earn It”

Forget the bankster message; just a reminder that these Smith Barney ads were great commercials in their time. I spent my childhood mimicking these ads, and somehow, my friends and I find ourselves regurgitating them today.

May Snow Blowers Rot in Hell

I read the sales papers tonight, while watching the Olympics (Go Phelps!), and guess what everyone has on sale this week? Snow blowers. Oh, fuck off. I’m still kayaking and stand-up paddling and screwing around in 70+ degree lake water. Take your snow blowers and stick them up your ass.

An Amazing Man, But Did Anyone Know?

I just came back from visiting my family members who live forty miles south of Minneapolis, in Northfield, MN. In March, my mother was taking up temporary residence in a nursing home in Northfield while nursing and rehabilitating a spinal injury. Since my father died, she has always had this need to take care of [...]

I Woke Up in the Middle of a Science Fiction Movie

My postings have been on the light side, lately, and that’s because I have been a bit preoccupied with other “stuff.” There is much to catch up on in the world of freedom, and I look forward to getting back to work tackling some of the larger and more visible issues. About five weeks ago [...]

An Ergonomic Evaluation?

Sunday, May 13, 2012 11:31 3 Comments

On Friday, at the office, I had an Ergonomic Evaluation from a lady in the Ergonomic Department. When you work for a gargantuan company, yes, you have stuff like an “ergo dept.” Too cool. Another reason I like my job. Anyway, I need an ergonomic solution because, six weeks post-hip surgery, all the sitting at [...]

A co-worker was kind enough to notice this on my website the other day and threw in some visuals. Google Ads sure know where to strike. (Click on photo to enlarge.)
