It is told that Buddha, going out to look on life, was greatly daunted by death. “They all eat one another!” he cried, and called it evil. This process I examined, changed the verb, said, “They all feed one another,” and called it good. – Charlotte Perkins Gilman

Wannabe “rock star” Pete Doherty used to merely annoy me with his posturing. His insistence of following the well-worn rock ‘n’ roll chemical highway traveled by Keith Richards, Johnny Thunders and Iggy Pop before him is neither original nor particularly noteworthy. Getting busted, overdosing and getting tossed out of bands for excessive drug abuse is by no measure new in the world of popular music, circa now.

Matt Smolenski and Joe Riopelle witnessed a huge wave break onto the South Pier at Grand Haven, MI, knocking Joe Badgero off of his feet and carrying his medium-sized dog back into the lake.
Smolenski paddled toward the struggling dog and braced her on his surfboard. After paddling against the strong rip current for some time, Riopelle helped his friend and the dog the rest of the way. The dog, described by the Muskegon Chronicle as an “older, mixed-breed” named Shell-B, accompanied Badgero to the pier regularly and is said to enjoy barking at the waves.

The horrible collapse of the I-35 bridge in Minneapolis this August highlights the aging highway infrastructure in our motoring society. One can only hope that it will underscore the need to pay closer attention to the roads and bridges that are in urgent need of repair all over the United States. One thing is certain, though. It has alerted us to a major threat to our standing structures:

We’ve often heard the securities market likened to a wilderness and traders, brokers and such said to be predators. Well, at least one stockbroker knows that’s all bullshit, because no one’s ever died a violent death on the floor of a stock exchange. Well…outside of Pakistan, that is. Read the rest of this entry »
