As I live a scant few hundred miles from New York City, I have been monitoring Hurricane Sandy for a few days now. I probably wouldn’t be so interested but I was scheduled to go down to the city on a business trip Monday… and I was fully intending to go, hurricane or not. I […]

Well it made ME laugh. Hey, these consecutive heat waves have one benefit: Oh this is JUST what I want to do with my car, yeah! And this! This guy is all over the Internet. Is it the same Batman in a Lambo? He’s friendly! He even waves! And this just made me giggle like […]
