Because the homeland security level is "yellow, " and that means that your life is at risk. Be afraid, be very afraid, and please be patriotic and give away your civil rights! Freedom isn't free! These colors don't run!
Been riding my bike to work lately. You see, hear, smell,
think a lot more on a bike than in a car. Two things I saw today:
1) We are in the middle of another one-week season, that of the Catalpa blossoms. For the record, I friggin love Catalpas. Gnarly and wretched all winter, giant, spade-shaped leaves in the spring, orchid-like flowers in early summer, foot-long seed pods in the fall. Now that's a sweet tree!
2) Sense of humor in a crappy neighborhood. Check out the basketball hoop at the top of the building. I don't know if it's a joke or a challenge, but either way, I love it.
