Goodbye Louisiana

I will surely miss everything I found there.

Chicago Roller Derby

The halftime show is performed by a Punk Rock Polka band called the
Polka-holics. Rock n Roll.

Hook Em!

I thought about putting up a picture of the sniper tower but that
would not be with the right intentions.

Got to Austin just in time for a really great seminar on the financial
crisis. The professor knocked a ball around in my head and opened me
up to the effects of foreign capital flows on the power of the Federal
Reserve. It seems that over the past twenty years the paradigm of Fed
power has been shifting slowly until their ability to control interest
rates has completely fallen into the hands of foreign capital.

Now, some might say the Fed never had that power in the first place,
but let's take one thing at a time.

To Austin!

Just got into Texas and had to take Black Betty off-road to dip around
a lane closure. No time dilly-dallying.

Camp is Set


All camped up, amidst a couple of torrential downpours and blazing
heat. Hopefully catch some music tonight, maybe some other
interesting things.

Bonnaroo Prep

We put up the tent this afternoon, all systems go, I found a Coleman popup at Academy for shade, got a tarp, and now I am looking for a Camelbak (useful while biking as well).

Goodbye FEMA!

Free at last! Free at last!

Some jobs you would hate lose, but to this one I bid goodbye and good
riddens. Not that I despised my time there, but it is definitely time
to move on. I wish all of my friends and colleagues well, but I gotta
go. It's just a shame that my whole team also has to go. I was happy
to leave everything I've put my heart and soul into over the past four
years to capable hands, but now that whole team is gone I am not sure
how things are going to work out. Well FEMA is notorious for
mismanagement, and this is no exception, at least I was already
planning for this.

Katrina was a special lady, she tore people apart and brought people
together, she forged new paths and unmade old ones. She was a curse
and a blessing. She will not be forgotten.
