I had breakfast this morning with one of my old roommates, Ryan, who told me the tale of his ‘walkabout’. What is a walk about you ask? Well, apparently it’s just when you walk. A lot. Ryan and his friend walked from La Jolla/UTC area to downtown San Diego. It was some 19 miles of walking in nine hours! Also, there’s a great article on Slate about the Bush tax cut and how it brings back class war and hurts the minimum wage earner.
