Scott Gilmore says that Canada is too self-satisfied with the status of its racial progress. I can’t speak to that, though it seems the comparison with the US (and the racial concerns of African-Americans therein) is rather unfair. Aboriginies/Indians/etc – especially with regard to reservations – are a uniquely difficult issue in the US and Canada.

It’s a long stereotype that few people believe anymore, but the stereotype is still there. Noah Smith puts to rest the notion that Japan isn’t innovative.

I… can relate to this somewhat. What do you do with a family heirloom that represents something of shame.

Michigan State sent out a letter questioning the family decisions of faculty. As in, the decision to choose having a family. My wife has gotten this “talk” twice, actually. (Both times from women, as it happens.) (Childless women, though in one case due to tragedy.)

    Yesterday I had a Journeyman plumber come out and check my work for a gas line extension I installed (my birthday present to myself was a new natural gas BBQ, so I had to run a gas line to it). For 1 hour of pretty light labor, I wrote him a check for $135. Now I know he won’t get all of that, but even if he only gets a third of it, he’s making a decent living.

    Before my motorcycle wreck, I was contemplating dive school, and had a backup plan of getting my A&P* license. Both of which were challenging but not overly long or expensive programs even in the civilian world, and both could easily result in middle to upper-middle class incomes.

    BA/BS degrees are nice, but they are seriously oversold.

    My last name is much more common in the African American community. It is also much more common on the east coast. I flew to NYC once, and was picked up by a limo driver (along with about six others.) The driver, who had a sign with my name on it to find me, was not expecting a white man.

Greetings from Stonebridge a fictitious city in a fictitious state located in a tri-state area in the interior Mid-Atlantic region. We're in western Queenland, which is really a state unto itself, and not to be confused with Queensland in Australia.

Nothing written on this site should be taken as strictly true, though if the author were making it all up rest assured the main character and his life would be a lot less unremarkable.
