Well, instead of the east coast this summer it looks like it's going to be the west coast - Portland, San Francisco, Tahoe, home. It's not quite what I wanted but it'll be a good time. I'm looking forward to it. I'm supposed to be leaving this Saturday. Hopefully at least that part goes as planned.
I've decided to go ahead and take this blog completely toward politics/economy. It's all I talk about anyway. Remember, you can email me at randy [at] circularlife [dot] com or use the chat box in the lower right.
