  1. Ending Homelessness

    by , 07-30-2021 at 09:38 PM (Memories of the 28th Century)
    Once again, I find myself returning to this difficult matter. Difficult though it is, I think that it is possible to accomplish, but it will require changes in tax policy and in some business customs.

    As we all know, there was an equilibrium in the housing market with respect to incomes until the 1970's or 80's a single person making minimum wage could rent an apartment in most places in the U.S.A., and a well paid person had plenty of money left after housing expenses. The change ...
  2. This Is My Home

    Burr's conspiracy was damnable, but it probably wasn't treason. They should have let him continue for a few months, and that would have let the story become clear. If Burr was planning to take a chunk of Texas on lease, then that ...

    On Thursday afternoon/evening I heard mum come home. I was so happy. She was able to drive home. She asked about the parking before leaving. I'd also looked it up. They've recently changed the system so that you pay when you leave so that's a relief at least. They said to just drive out and deal with it if we have to later.

    It's a "mini stroke"/TIA/transient ischemic attack.
