Chief Wiggum: “Think you can get this car home?” Barney: “Sure thing, giant beer!” Inspired by the beautiful weather today, and the realization that my grandfather gets more regular exercise than I do, I decided to leg it home today and forego the subway. Since I live for the most part due southeast of my [...]

I don’t normally blog about work here, but this one made it to the paper, so I might as well toot my own horn a little bit (not that I had anything to do with winnning approval for this grant…but still). The federal government yesterday launched its most ambitious study ever of the health of [...]
Need to borrow a steam cleaner? Well I’m now the proud owner of one thanks to this little (if a 20 pound cat can be considered little) bastard and his propensity for peeing wherever he feels like it. The good news is that with the addition of the steam cleaner I feel like we’ve turned [...]
The pins keep lining up, and if the Democrats can just knock them down, hopefully we can take back Congress and start to actually fix this horrible farce.

Some day I’ll get on the ball with this whole Flickr thing, but for now here are a couple of my shots from this weekend: Also, check out Matt’s excellent post and photoset from the day as well as Albert’s photoset which shows what someone who knows how to take photos, unlike me, can actually [...]
I haven’t written much here about Jack Abramoff, the crooked Washington lobbyist currently under indictment, whose tentacles seem to snake into every facet of the Bush Administration cabal and the Republican party. From Karl Rove to Grover Norquist and Ralph Reed, everyone seems to have a connection to Abramoff. This is a HUGE puzzle, but [...]
After an unfortunate encounter between my old Sony DSC-V1 and a whole lot of beer, I found myself camera-less this past Memorial Day. Seeing how I’m going back to the scene of the crime, and an anti-war rally seems to offer nearly unlimited possibilities for interesting photos, I went out to Ritz Camera in Liberty [...]
