I always thought Tim Ryan was kind of full of shit about his anti-abortion stance, though I thought that, unlike some people, he was full of shit in a sort of good way. He tried doing the "can't we find common ground" schtick by getting pro-life movement...

I certainly can relate to the notion that blogging (mostly) all day every day is stressful. Yes it's a privileged and easy life for the most part, but it still has its own unique stresses that take their toll. As soon as I hit the publish button, my...

Glennzilla has a good piece.I usually don't scream quite as loudly as I used to, because I don't have to. Back in the early days you had to make noise to be heard. Now that the internet is much more all linked up, one doesn't have to be quite as noisy....

Sometimes I want to be in the room at the White House when they discuss these things. Yes the cost of this tax benefit (in terms of lost revenue) is mostly due to relatively wealthy people benefiting from it, though it matters more to the less wealthy...

One of the goofier unchallenged phrases is "American love affair with cars." Cars are useful things! We built infrastructure to accommodate them, and then places that required them. People in other countries have cars too! They also, sometimes to a lesser...

I'm not going to claim that everyone working in dem-leaning politics is a saint. We have our own mercenaries and grifters. But the Great Grift of conservative politics is quite stunning in its scope....

Locally, at least. The forecast here was always a bit lower than NYC and parts of New England, but, it seems like we're down to almost nothing at this point.This has been the local snow report, brought to you by the letter 'S'.

This is all too complicated. Just put a bunch in a pot, add some cut up pork, boil for an hour, add some cut up tofu for a few minutes at the end, serve with a bit of rice. Done....

I actually was an urban economist in my former life. Economists are sometimes good at coming up with very complicated ways of trying to prove what is obvious. My memory of the research is that people value their time with respect to public transit just...
