I can't say I really understand what motivates people to go through this stuff, but these kinds of experiences must be horribly common.Jonathan C. Dailey, a lawyer in Washington, wired Planet Hospital $37,000 in December 2013, the first installment on...

There are several reasons I tend to not comment on Israel-related program activities, but a big one is that the opinionating reaches meta at light speed, that so much commentary is more of a pose than an attempt to actually influence events. It's punditry-as-narcissism...

Much of central/south Philly (and much of the rest) is a simple North-South/East-West street grid, but there are some exceptions, and this intersection is where it all goes to hell spectacularly. Hopefully the improvements improve......

Climate change isn't really one of my issues. Not that I don't think it's an issue, it's just that it's one of those things I don't pay enough attention to in order to have even pundit level of knowledge about. Can't be a fake expert about everything!...

There are a lot of things wrong with implementing a VMT tax. And, frankly, part of the problem is this stupid obsession with technology. The only cheap/efficient way to do it is to have it be recorded off your odometer at your annual car inspection (assuming...

A lot of "bad bicyclist" behavior doesn't really rise above annoying, and a lot of it is, if not actually legal, often preferable to drivers whether they know it or not (responsible rolling stops in certain situations). But bike salmon are the worst....

The real crime isn't that we're horrible, it's that you're pointing out that we're horrible!!!

I remember being lectured by the usual suspects about how if I was a peacenik who didn't think we should intervene in the Libyan civil war then I must come up with my OWN PLAN for SOLVING THE PROBLEM or whatever.So, uh, what's the plan now?A huge fuel...

Obviously GPS maps/directions are a wonderful tool, but it doesn't surprise me that drivers who entirely rely on them might not have much of a clue about where they are, that they never really form a mental map of the area. It's one thing if you're looking...

Ultimately that's how pundits can laugh about the issue. They don't want it to be legalized, but they don't ever have to think about what it means that it's illegal. I'm not entirely averse to the idea that sometimes Official State Disapproval is appropriate...

Had a reminder of how we lurch from topic to topic in this country, from crisis to crisis, each one demanding our immediate intervention (freedom bombs) until the next one comes along and we forget all about the last one. Was seeing, for amusement, who...
