    Do you live in a shithole city?

    Military spending keeps some of these places afloat financially.

    Do you live in a shithole city?

    Familiar with quite a few of this cities. Lived or worked in a few and my adult kids lived in a few. People are important but sometimes there is just too much for regular people to overcome. Detroit is still on an upswing. Mike Illich basically kept it from doing completely down the drain, and Quicken has invested heavily. Ford just bought the old Amtrak station, which has been deserted for 30 years. Eastern Market is a nice place on a Saturday morning. South Bend is an interesting rust belt post Studebaker story. Notre Dame is the biggest employer, though it technically is not in South Bend. Universities (and college students) tend to various incidents that can inflate a crime rate. New Orleans can be a scary place - daughter was robbed a few times. Baltimore is a mosaic of crime, police corruption (the convictions keep coming), and some great universities.

    Parenting is damn hard. Some kids survive despite miserably neglectful parenting. Others die despite 99.9% great parenting.

    and soon california is to be fucked...

    If it were easy, DC and Puerto Rico would be states. The political calculus is such that the balance of partisan power would have to remain unchanged. Like in the pre Civil War years when incoming slave state and free states were somewhat offsetting each other. The House is straightforward but the 4 added senators and Electoral College issues will kill it at the federal level.

    At least it was shortened, albeit inadvertently.

    Better than most, not a reality TV screamer.

    NHL 2017

    Only saw 1 Caps game ever, back in the days of Yvon Labre, Bugsy Watson, Mike Marson et al. I hope they invite them all back for the party.

    Anthony Bourdain

    Enjoyed his journalistic style and sense of irony. I generally don't miss dead celebrities, but I read a few of his books and he was an insightful entertainer. RIP.

    Unibody pull advice?

    If she has a job let her pay for it herself. You didn't say how many prior "agains" she has racked up. Anything after the first one should have meaningful consequences. Rear ending suggests lack of attention-distracted driving. Next time could be head on with a dump truck. Raising kids is a challenge, been there done that.

    Furnace filter anarchy

    Mine is electrostatic too. I have never seen a 5" thick paper filter for a furnace.

    Only In Australia

    I think many Americans think of Australians as a branch of Canadians. Mostly like us but use some odd pronunciations. Sorta like Texans...

    Pit Bulls Behaving Bad Again: Biggly Part III

    Someone gets shot and we blame the gun even though the shooter pulled the trigger. Someone gets bitten by a dog and we blame the owner even when the dog acted alone. I have had a few dogs of other breeds but can't see that pitbulls are worth the trouble.

    Japs kill pregnant whales

    I went in winter, cold but beautiful but only 6 hrs of daylight then.
