Another one Bites the Dust

RIP, Terra Firma:

....Our sales at this market have not kept up with our sales through other outlets, particularly our CSA boxes, much less with inflation. We have found that every year, it takes more staff at the market to sell the same volume of produce....

They're cutting back to an April through July schedule.

I'm going to have to find out what Julie Guthman has to say about this.

Like most reasonable Americans, I decided long ago that the best response to the state of our government is to ignore it... hey! did you hear what happened to Lolhan? But last March I found myself uncharacteristically stricken by George Packer's report on the plight of the Iraqis who have tried to save us from our own incompetence: in short, we're leaving them to die.

Last month, Packer updated the situation (no change), then announced that Kirk Johnson's List Project has a website, where you can donate, or write to Congress to support H.R. 2265 and S. 1651.

A rare opportunity to rectify one particularly shameful part of this nightmare.

This explains everything!

It turns out that all the incoherent mouthbreathers that populate the internets are CEOs.

Is it possible that the Gainesville Sun is funnier than Bad News Hughes?
