I can’t imagine how that felt!”

The President Just Stole Your Land… and Gave it Back to Utah

Patagonia sent me, a devout patron, not one but two emails this week in defense of our federal public lands.  And today’s was just blatant misinformation if not an outright scathing lie.  Either way, it seems that Patagonia Inc. has officially tossed their 50 SPF hat into the fiery ring of environmental escamotage.

New Fiction: Another Tragedy in the Making

Don’t tell me it is my programming. Yes, it is my programming, but it was part of me before I was ever a ghost in a machine.

The patronage of the bar had turned over a couple times since anyone knew what the “C” stood for, he had been just Benny C for so long. The guys did not pay for anything out of their pockets, the cost of their daily imbibing and dining was built into the rent for their apartments.
