Coming Soon

I’ve added a new category to the blogroll, Street Scene, that features the new line-up at the American Street starting in 2008.

As Kevin Hayden was polite enough to ask me, I agreed to do some posting over there once a week. I don’t think I can get away with the Florida license plates, and there are too many people with interests in pets, so I guess I will actually have to write about whatever is annoying me at the moment.

The area I live in isn’t totally unconnected to the rest of the planet – Karl Rove has/had a place on the coast, Mike Huckabee dropped by recently, and the Clintons show up occasionally. They go over to the tacky, over-priced, absurd town of Destin or one if its gated adjuncts to con people out of any money they may have left after paying the price for a house or condo in that over-sold area.

Destin was once a working fishing port, but it has also participated in the casual “importing” trend of the late 1920s and early 1930s, and then again in the latter part of the 20th century. Fishing, even charter boat fishing, isn’t always sufficient to pay your bills, but some people pay amazingly well for deliveries from Mexico and Caribbean islands to the United States. Apparently other shipping companies didn’t want the business.

yabbut, i haven’t been a regular at american street. it was your rearranging your blogroll that prompted me to notice, and visit, some sites i otherwise had ignored, overlooked, or never heard of before.

He does have a wicked sense of humor.

Congrats! 🙂

I thank you, but I could just annoy a wider group of people.

7 Cookie Jill { 12.31.07 at 7:56 pm }

Annoy? Nah…entertain and educate. -140. Still can’t get over that.

You won’t see it again, unless we really do something about climate change. The Arctic seems to be the most affected area.
