More Ann Arbor Missed Connections

I’m not convinced most of the “missed connections” on the Ann Arbor craigslist are actually real. But they sure make for fun reading. Check out this recent one:

You: pipe smoking boy in an “I rate A² too” t-shirt, reading an Urban Planning(?) text book in Liberty Plaza yesterday lunchtime. I think you were listening to an iPod.

Me: Gelato-eating girl in yellow hippie dress sitting opposite for a while, reading a Charles Baxter novel.

I said hi but I don’t think you heard me. Perhaps I’ll see you there again some day?

ps. I’m *really* interested in urban planning.

Mainers: No Fools

I was excited to find this Maine Politics blog that got started recently. The author recently attended a visit to the state by Bush advisor Andrew Card:

The exciting part in Bangor didn’t come during the speech, but after it. Card had said his piece, the small audience had applauded politely and he was headed for the exit, when an old Mainer stood up in the middle of the room and said his piece. “Where are you going? I thought this was supposed to be a dialogue.” Card turned and paused, the cameras flashed, and he began to move back towards the podium.

The man, a retired history professor (whom the BDN identifies as “Clyde MacDonald, 75, of Hampden") asked an excellent question about the wisdom of drawing down the trust fund in order to fund a new program when the real issue in Social Security is solvency. Card mocked him a bit and turned for another question. I think he picked me because I was clean-cut and wearing a young-republicanesque polo shirt.

I began my question by stating that President Bush often denigrates the Social Security trust fund, claiming it doesn’t exist and that it is full of worthless IOUs. I didn’t get any farther. Card looked right at me and said that the President does no such thing. …

Google Earth


Google has launched a software program that “combines satellite imagery, maps and the power of Google Search to put the world’s geographic information at your fingertips.” It’s called Google Earth. I’ve uploaded a variety of images to Flickr that give you an idea of what it can do - however non of the screen grabs utilizes the search features built into the system. Check out Glover Park and Detroit,

Intern Blog Launches

Today, the Center for American Progress’ Campus Progress project launched a blog for interns in DC for the summer:

Today Campus Progress launches Social Capital, a new blog/calendar (blogendar?) designed not only to make sure your social calendar remains packed while you’re in DC, but also to give you a place to share stories about crazy intern mixups, tidbits overheard in hallways or on the Metro, right-wing buffet spreads, and more.
