I recently found myself with a little money and a desire to drive just about anything other than the Subaru Outback I’ve been stuck in for the last two years, so I went out to find a fun, affordable sports-car. I took my $17k budget and hit the local used car lots for some test drives, and I wound up driving an ’07 Mazda Miata Grand Touring and an ’02 Porsche Boxster back-to-back. Then I had an opinion. So I thought I’d share it. Forgive the lack of pictures – this is another experiment in reviewing, and I didn’t bring a camera with me to my test-drive. I guess I could steal photos, but that would make me feel like a jerk.

I watched Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution the other night, and while I fully support the idea of feeding children better food, I’m a wee bit unhappy with Mr. Oliver. You see, he’s publicly shamed the LA school district. He’s painted them as this big, evil monster – essentially a dastardly corporation. Watch the show, you’ll see what I mean. He’s given the district a healthy dose of bad PR, and it’s going to cost them to fix their image.
And they are guilty of trying to keep him out of school kitchens. They are guilty of trying to pinch pennies and continue feeding children horrible food. But they’ve got a damn good reason.
I guess Mitt Romney’s committee to investigate forming an investigative committee for a Presidential bid decided an investigative committee would meet with a favorable response.
I hate this guy.
I hate this guy and I hate his stupid bid for attention and money. Most of all I hate that now I have to listen to people talk about him and his potential Presidential bid. He can’t win; he’s a Mormon and no matter what he says that’s not the same as Kennedy being a Catholic.
Instead I want to talk about how humanity took its first steps into space fifty years ago today. I want to talk about how people are rising up against dictators around the world. I want to talk about anything at all that’s important and relevant, and try and ignore the fact that I’ll be seeing Mitt’s smug, punchable face in YouTube clips and television ads for a solid eighteen months.
