So everyone who could get a job in the private sector did and left. This person could not, in good conscience ask anyone to stay. And these are not high level jobs necessarily. Just not permanent union staff and are technically political appointees but (not counting the commissioner) non-partisan career bureaucrat types.
Who knows what went on at the DOT

That is inexcusable.

Jealous. This is something I wish were more readily available around here. I often see Bento as a dine-in option for lunch, but I've never seen one that advertised them for pick-up or to-go. If the joint across the street from me offered this I would eat it several times a week.

95% of neighborhood restaurants offer delivery while 99% at least offer pickup.


Seamless is awesome.

I am in your state. -34º last night. Fucking ridiculous. This is some Antarctica bullshit. I can't wait to get back home to sane temperatures.

I really need to get dainite soles on some of my shoes

Why? They suck. Slippery in the rain and useless on snow. Oak bark soles get a bit of a nap on them like suede when you wear them. Not to mention that they look weird when walking behind somebody in dress shoes and seeing a rubber sole.
