The French don't screw around when it comes to protesting. We here in the US could learn a thing or two about this from them.
The French government tried to change a law about youth labor that would have made it easier to hire and fire young workers. Millions of people protested angrily for weeks on [...]
This is so wrong.
OK, it’s New England keeping us on our toes. We get it. It’s reminding us that it can give us almost 80° one day and a snowstorm a few days later (it’s hard to see in the picture, but it’s snowing hard right now [...]
Look, I’m sorry I had to do this, but I’ve been watching 4 or 5 months of the Bruins’ new “It’s Called Bruins” marketing campaign, featuring another tedious bout of tough-talking Denis Leary growling about “teamwork” and “sacrifice” and “blue-collar-whatever” and so forth, and with the bottom [...]

If it’s really going to be in the lower 70s today (22°-24° for those of you in the civilized world), I’m giving notice right now that nobody should expect me to be even remotely productive. Yesterday almost did me in from the high 60s. Today, forget about [...]
I came to the realization recently that my participating fandom of the Red Sox is over for me. It's now a relic of my childhood. I can't afford the Red Sox anymore.
You can't even GET Sox tickets anymore without connections or going through a scalper or reseller. [...]
…or continuing to take steps that way.
Simplifying my life has become a priority over the last few years, and I've made some changes I feel good about. One of which is "getting rid of stuff." We don't, in general, have good rituals about the accumulation of material [...]
Not that I actually WANT 50,000,000 google users here, but I’m curious as to how quickly things that I post here make it into Google. I decided to test with the “nukemyespnvideo” greasemonkey script I wrote below. Googling “remove myespn video” doesn’t return [...]
