Something to send to Walden today 

Just a quick action item (thanks for the heads up go to Peter Buckley). This will send a fax to your Representative re: overtime pay. Always a good thing.

I now return you to the planned lull :)

Open Thread - week of 9/15 

I am back from a soccer trip to the Eugene and Portland areas. Things didn't go so well on the scoreboard, but we had fun.

CNN is breaking the 9th circuit CA recall postponement.

The 2004 Pres race has been building visibility

And Kevin Mannix is in Medford to tell us why taxes are bad.

Comment as you see fit.

Open Thread 

Just in case people are starting to read this blog :)

Chime in on whatever suits your fancy related to politics - your Dean meetup, Jim Hightower on the Jefferson Exchange, the Albuquerque debate coming up tonight (6:30pm, KSYS channel 8), Al Franken recent appearances...

Chime in and let's start some discourse!

Urban Sprawl makes us heavier 

On Talk of the Nation today, the topic was American obesity. As you may note on my Issues page, I mention sprawl as being extraordinarily complex - well today's show included some research that indicated that after you filter for other factors (age, gender, education level) you end up with sprawl resulting in a +6 lbs swing on average. Seems you spread everything out, and noone walks anywhere - we sit on our hind ends in cars. Exercise is good, sprawl discourages it. Weight gain has wide ranging personal and societal impact, sprawl encourages it.

Like we needed another reason to see it as a problem.
