commented on Mayor Murray Has Some Vague Plans for Dealing With the Bertha Mess! Which of Them Is Best?
some other kind of tunnel. Like cut and cover. the problem is that our "leaders are terrified of negative public opinion. Even though cut and cover tunnels are cheaper and much faster. They are disruptive and unsightly while underway. Murray's fear of a backlash if this tunnel fails is a symptom of the same fear. It's actyally funny that the fear of failure that drove them to make the poor choices they did may cause the failure. We are geologically a much better place for cut and cover tunnels than bored tunnels.

commented on Every Part of Paseo (Except for the Delicious Recipes) Was Sold at Auction
The story highlighted an interesting feature of the corporate veil. The owner claims that the recipes were his personal property. The whole point of a corporate bankruptcy is that the debts belonged to the corporate entity and not the owners. This seems like some kind of conversion to me: sneaking the goods out of the store before the auction.
