Hurricane Sandy Nears East Coast

RobL3 Re:Sensationalism Sucks (281 comments)

Do you live near the ocean?

I probably don't have to explain why thats a really, really bad thing.

It's not just that our legal system can't keep up with the ever-increasing pace of change, It's having trouble staying in the same freaking decade.

Fond Memories of Nerd Camp

RobL3 NC Governors School (116 comments)

Anybody else here do NCGS in the 80's? As I recall there were two - East and West. East was the more "progressive". We had classes in meditation, punk rock and hitch-hiking as well as our core subject area. Was a great time, and changed my life - tax dollars well spent.
