Catchalling

A lot of catching up to do around here, so Im just gonna post this super-long link-filled extravaganza, glossing over details, ignoring important points, completely missing many newsworthy events, and adding absolutely nothing of value to the conversation.

Happy Xmas

December 25, 2004

The City of Tampa met with developers yesterday to plot ways to allow the builders to get around rules that require new and improved roads to accompany developments that increase traffic loads.

Supporting our troops

December 20, 2004

Catch-22 * “‘Catch-22…says you’ve always got to do what your commanding officer tells you to. “‘But Twenty-seventh Air Force says I can go home with forty missions.’ “‘But they don’t say you have to go home.
