DC: money in the bags

Or as I’m sure the plan will come to be called… nickel bags. I remember when San Francisco banned plastic bags, and some shopping chains followed suit nationwide like IKEA & Whole Foods. I even remember when stores would reward...

politics: they didn’t pay what?

While I’m sure that photo wasn’t taken specifically in response to the recent withdrawn nominees, it still looks like an apt reflection of how he must be feeling. At least, as a quirk of fate, Daschle’s withdrawal took place on...

2 cents: burning green/saving green

Regarding the Michael Phelps deal, the question “How dumb are you?” comes to mind. If he wants to burn one down, that’s his business. It isn’t yet legal, but it’s his business. But when you’re an Olympic medal-winner–and now role...

shopping: what’s your style?

Even though I overindulged a bit on Friday evening out with friends, I was still well enough–or so I thought–to head out with Kyle and hit the malls on a shopping excursion. I don’t have anything to buy for the...

foodie: wine tasting at the Ritz!

Last night Liz and I were invited to a “special event” at the Ritz-Carlton by Martha. Checking in with twitter all day does sometimes pay off! After the initial “woo hoo!” wore off, I checked out what I’d gotten myself...

Well I’m glad someone finally said it. So far I haven’t bought a single thing, though I am thinking of stuff for myself. I might finally break down and grab myself one of those guitar band type game things. I...

comics: Gay Marriage? Oh Noes!!

Another fun strip from Sinfest: Your Corporate Masters. I find it a little funny that New England seems up to speed on this while California, a place most associate as being our country’s own little version of Hell on Earth...

DC schools: Paid for Grades

D.C. Schools Chancellor Michelle A. Rhee announced plans yesterday to boost dismal achievement at half the city’s middle schools by offering students an unusual incentive: cash. — WaPo: D.C. Tries Cash as a Motivator In School Ok, what?! I’m all...

The (economic) power of prayer?

I wrote about Pray At The Pump about a month ago, and now they’re claiming victory. They believe their prayers have actually caused the price of gas to drop: “We were down in Huntsville, Alabama. We finished praying,” Mr Twyman...

Jesse Jackson shouldn’t cut things off…

… and neither should you! Two things I saw recently in Express. In yesterday’s Blog Log, Motherhood Uncensored is declaring an August event called Blog the Recession. The idea is that instead of just reading your favorite blogs in your...

B of A: Higher Standards? Right.

I called up Bank of America to request a credit line increase. I’ll do the mini-rant in reverse and say first-off that I was successful. Now for my issues: Discovering that their online page for Credit Line Increases is broken....

in DC: the picture I didn’t take

I’m sure we all could create just as many entries as there are over on Unphotographable about the pictures we didn’t take, but one I didn’t take this morning triggered a memory from years ago. I was waiting on the...
