Soc Sec

Read about the bogus plans to privatize Social Security in this week's Economics Reporting Review. Do it!

Donate some Dough

I frequently read articles on ZNet. Their daily news and commentary, from a dizzying array of famous (generally quite liberal) commentators, is about as "left" as you can get. Currently they are having some funding problems, so if you have a couple extra bucks and feel like helping out, get over there and do some contributing!

I thought I felt something...

As it turns out, just a few days after D and I visited Mount St. Helens, the U.S. Geological Survey released a warning of increased seismic activity around the site, indicating a possible eruption like the big one in the 80's. Exciting.

Final Destination

Whew, finally made it to Palo Alto, CA yesterday. We have met all of D's roommates at Stanford and they seem nice. D is settling in reasonably well so far, although her Fedex packages with all her stuff seem to have gotten lost in transit. Well that's it for now.

Chicago and Beyond

So far it's been a lovely trip, minus the bit about the car break-in Sunday night. At first we thought the worst was D's earrings and necklaces, as well as her external hard drive with archives of all her pictures. But then last night we realized her big backpack with ALL her shirts was gone, too... She is being a very good sport about it, though, deciding this is mostly a good excuse to have a mini shopping spree at Mall of America once we get to MN. Currently we are making use of the free Wi-Fi here in Milwaukee, en route to House on the Rock near Spring Green, WI. Here's to some better luck West of the Mississippi! P.S. My Gameboy was another casualty of the break-in, is this a good excuse for me to have a shopping spree, too? P.P.S. It takes FOREVER to spell "Mississippi" on a mobile phone...
