A topic that is on the lips of many people during the past few months, and one with which I have greatly concerned myself, is that of moral hazard. We hear cries from all corners, from politicians, journalists, economists, businessmen, and citizens, clamoring for the federal government to interve...

I would like to thank all the Hardworking Americans, the ones who get up before the sun is up and rarely get home before it goes down. The ones who have no other choice but to never spend an hour of sunlight with there families. We have been one of these families until now by no choice of our own...

The other day my daughter was telling me she thought building a Skate Park for these "Skater Dudes" was a good idea. She knew I didn't support it. I asked her what we should do to show our support? She thought making a donation to the City for the Skate Park might be a good idea and may encourage...
Changing the name of my column by richardzowie
Mar 28, 2009 | 0 0 comments | 8 8 recommendations | email to a friend
This column is taking on yet another change in its quest to be the most-read column in the world. Originally, it was called "Rick's Ramblings" and (in another paper I wrote for) the wholly-unoriginal "My Two Cents". "Richard's Ramblings" sounded nice and alliterative.

It's getting pretty tough up here. The Ann Arbor News (hometown of the Michigan Wolverines) will go web-only this summer.

I once again found myself on the streets of San Antonio. This time it was to see the opera Mikado. As is customary on outings such as this, lunch was needed before the opera. We went with a couple of old friends, one of which had the routine of ordering cafe sua da. Having never tried Vietnamese ...

And so it was. An angry mob gathered in the virtual town square, torches raised and readied for the midnight bonfire.
