I stood this morning sipping coffee in front of Nashville's Downtown Presbyterian Church. Liberated from cigarettes with nothing to occupy the time I would have spent smoking I stared up at the brick bell towers of the church. Once tall they are now dwarfed by two 30 plus story buildings and will... Sign in to see full entry.

The Judge Is Way, Way Out Of Line

Federal Judge Kenneth M. Karas sentenced Marion Jones to six months in prison for lying about her use of performance enhancing drugs and her knowledge of a check cashing scam. Apparently that last item wasn't a big of an issue as it may sound however. Adding insult to injury Karas had the audacity... Sign in to see full entry.

It's Getting So A Man Can't Survive

Over this past weekend I had to empty out my storage unit because it was $78 dollars I needed somewhere else in my budget, though I have to admit: my "budget" is spending what I want to and looking at my checking account balance online a week...

I Live A Slacker Life

I live a slacker life. Yesterday I left work at noon and didn’t tell anybody. I drove home and took a nap. I’m a state official…I have no boss. When I do sit at work I read reports sent in from the field offices about people who don’t take all the steps required when treating drinking water and they... Sign in to see full entry.
