Parking -- A Modest Proposal (with apologies to Jonathan Swift this time) Last week we established that there’s no such thing as free parking anymore, the way I remember it from the 1960's.

Thanks to the AWEsome Moms Clubs-

The proverb says "Be careful what you wish for... you will receive it."

A four month old boy named Colin was placed in the custody of his [...]

Another Torch Song –

Another Torch Song –

I’m not a sports fan. I will watch the occasional game for fun, if it’s a social event, but I just never sit and watch sports by myself. I’m not anti-sport. I played AYSO soccer, and I swam in high school. I love to play, but just watching doesn’t do it for me- until they light that torch, and then I’m hypnotized. I love the Olympics. I love them unquestioningly and slavishly. After [...]

Looking Forward by Ted Bellamy

A bit of an introduction- Like the character created by his more famous relative Edward Bellamy, Ted lay down to take a nap, and woke up in a very different world. In Ted’s case, he went to sleep in a quiet suburban hamlet in 1961, and awakened, 39 years later, in a bustling hub of one of the largest urban centers in the world. Unlike Edward’s character, Ted didn’t wake up in Utopia, [...]
