Clear Nights

It is my sincere hope that our future evenings in Boulder aren't cluttered with thunderstorms and rain. Though it appears this is part of a normal trend I would appreciate some respite as my lawnsporting habits have become forgotten. Lawnsporting does require a certain amount of dressing up, even if only for fun, and any inclement weather would certainly lead to a soggy backside. Even if the rain has quite a calming affect which I welcome in a town of type A active folk, myself included. A recent clear warm evening reminded me of those many long days I would spend riding my bike late into the night with friends. Waiting for the sun to drop low enough in the sky to start our game of flashlight tag. If the weather trends do not change soon I'm sure we will adapt. It will just be hard to find a waterproof picnic blanket and sweater vest. Message was composed on my mobile device.

Boulder, really?

Really? No shirt. Latte. Bike helmet while walking. Really?

Outsmarted...


...by two 18 year old kids.

Drat.

No one in the office could fix it. So we called in Kim's son and his friend. They figured it out.

NYC High Line Park




I blogged about this a few years ago and it looks like The High Line has finally come to fruition.

This small park seems paltry considering I am surrounded by green mountains and meadows in Boulder at the moment. The green here is novel for us though as summer is usually brown and dry. So I imagine the effect of each is quite similar. NYC has its massive central park which is more oasis then anything else so The High Line should prove to be a fantastic escape of busy city streets, add a new perspective to the city surroundings freshening the minds and hearts of city dwellers.

What Rivalry?

Everyone seems pretty alerted to this "rivalry" between Lance Armstrong and Alberto Contador lately and I'm not sure I buy it.

I'm thinking Lance-Alberto are more along the lines of Kobe-Shaq then they are Kobe-Lebron. They're on the same team. They'll get the team a win. Lance hasn't sent the warning shot he usually does. Alberto was killing, or slaying if you are TP, it in his Spring campaign. 'Bert also has a major TT and hillclimb in the coming days of the Dauphine. One will make his point and one will not. The rest will be left for 200 dudes, 3 weeks, and some pavement in the France to decide.

A Highlight of Conflicted Interest

An article was recently published in the New York Times about the contaminated sludge of the Hudson being stored on the outskirts of TinyTown, NM.

What I found interesting, and mostly disturbing, was the man involved in landing the contract to store the waste, Harold C. Simmons. Its pretty bad when the references following your name entail involvement in propaganda financing.

So the story goes like this. Environmentalists cry fowl, Simmons' company calls environmentalist's claims a lie. The EPA which is based in the same town as Simmons gives the project the green light.

They couldn't have painted a better picture of a man, sans morals, who buys permission for a lucrative contract and highlights the compromised position of a government agency.
