Do They Believe In Themselves?

For a generation that has been raised in a "self-esteem" promoting culture, it's ironic that these are the same folks who always are the first to ask "Who am I to judge?" when it comes to any political issue that might offend liberal sensibilities.

There was a time in our history, not too long ago, that people had the self-confidence to bring order, to enforce a standard. Somebody has to step up and fill that vacuum. Who am I to judge? I'm somebody who knows that our ancestors were wiser than we give them credit for.

D is for Democratic...or Decrepit?

Rumor has it that Joe Biden may run for President in 2020. He'll be 77. He also has a lot of baggage. Surely the Dems can do better?

A Sandwich Criminal!

So a New York man has become fairly famous, in the Internet sense, since some neighborhood folk harassed him for routinely eating a sub sandwich parked in his car on their street. It was public property. They actually went so far as to follow him to his office to confront him, and also called the police. I take it these folks never eat in their car. That's a shame, because it's actually quite peaceful.

Fortunately, everything turned out well for him in the end and he is now able to eat his lunch where he pleases.

This incident does raise a familiar theme for me--I love to eat in my car, and I usually choose the edges of fairly large parking lots when I can find them so as to help my car "blend in" and avoid these types of issues with nosy passersby. I now see that my environmental awareness on this matter is justified. Hopefully this story, which has gone viral, will help create some slack for folks who eat in their cars.

Street Name Etymology

Many towns and cities have a "Central Street" and a "Main Street." What's the real difference between these, though? Are many Main Streets not "central?"
