Greenway roller skier, spread your poles wide. The world is yours, let no one pass!
So, the 1st time I bought heavy schwalbe tires I felt silly paying so much,
but that very first pair is still going strong - after 10 years! They're thin &
will retire this fall.
Also, I second the Express recommendation.
Anybody else read that crazy North Dakota radioactive waste fugitive story?
It seems to have been handled worse than poorly. What a fucked up state.
Pruitt's EPA should be able to fix things..ha! Just kidding.
I'm almost disappointed 3M ceo Inge Thule decided (way too late as savage pointed out)
to leave that stupid manufacturing council. It would almost have been fun to goad him
with misguided Thule Society questions.
Inge Thulin from 3m/scotch tape is still on that Trump advisory board. Classy!
Anyone else hear the Ta-Nehisi Coates interview today? New book sounds interesting.
Fundraiser for Dar Al-Farooq at Moon Palace Books this Thursday,7pm. I'll be
working, say hello if you're feeling social.
I find the Scott Pruitt secret EPA news really infuriating. One of the administration's
success stories, I guess.
Here's a shitty cell pic of mine. It's fun to change things around on it. Like now I want to put on some cool Clement tires after seeing your pictures.
In fact, I always want to take the fenders off every bike I have & put on wide tires, but I do like riding in the wet without getting a butt stripe.
His shows on Democracy Now are so good. Unrestrained, like his eyebrows.
And Peter Guillam. Such a great lot of characters. Apparently LeCarré made some kind of pact with his children where he made them promise to block any writing he did from being published if they thought it was shitty. He was afraid his age would weaken it.
I loved MRS. CALIBAN by Rachel Ingalls. It's a reprint of a 1982 novel about a woman who becomes close to a sea monster person. Weird, funny. It really trucks along, too - sometimes things don't make sense, but that's OK, & even though there isn't much character explanation, they are very real characters.
Just got an advance of the upcoming LeCarré which I'm putting everything aside in order to read immediately, tonight. It's got Smiley!
I've also been reading a little about the digger movement in SF, and about West Africa in the 60s. And my
next book in line is Svetlana Alexievich's UNWOMANLY FACE OF WAR, interviews with Soviet female fighters she conducted between 1978 - 1985. The WW2 stuff looks completely fascinating, it all does.
