As Guy Clark sings, "Only two things that money can't buy, that's TRUE LOVE and HOME GROWN TOMATOES."

History Channel

Why does the History Channel have a show called "Modern Marvels?"

Breakfast Cereal

There are two types of people in this world, those whose parents let them have sugar cereal and those who didn't. Thanks Mom. We even put sugar on our non-sugar cereal. I guess our kids will be in the category of parents that let their kids have sugar cereal because Daddy will be having Count Chocula. Actually that will be better for me, then when I buy it I can say it is for the kids. But I won't get the prize once the kids learn to read.

Walmart and Barnes and Noble

New Yorkers are fighting to keep Wal Mart out of NY. They reasons, they force their suppliers to cut costs so they can undersell the Mom and Pop stores. Also, they under pay their employees, but that doesn't seem to be an issue with the employees. I wonder if the Upper West Siders who think Wal Mart is evil care that the folks in the Bronx may want a chance to save some money on house hold items.

An easy example is bookstores. Barnes and Noble is of course the Wal Mart of books. But, when I go to the Barnes and Noble at 84th and Broadway, it is packed with self righteous West Siders strolling through for their latest Al Franken books. But when I go to Murder Ink / Ivy's Books on Broadway and 94th, which I love, usually it is just me. So, if the big guys are evil, why do you shop there? There are still Mom and Pop alternatives. The truth is everyone likes to save a buck, some just don't admit it.

Subway Antics

Yesterday I saw a guy carry a 30" TV on the subway. My first thought, "I hope that isn't my TV."
