Here is my LTE in the Austin Chronicle:

Pedi-Cab Power


I have an idea on how we can reduce air pollution, promote tourism, and help the economy!

How? By granting a waiver to the $50-per-quarter fee that the city charges for pedi-cabs.

By doing this, Austin will gain cleaner air (pedi-cabs are human-powered and pollution-free), a very cool tourist attraction (what other city our size has so many pedi-cabs?), and a residual boost in the economy from the tax cut.

If you agree that the city should do this, be sure and sign the online petition for this proposal at pedicabpetition.cjb.net.

oh yeah, be sure and read lemonyellow.com. h.a. halpert is a very cool pioneer of this kinda thing.

yeah, if you're wondering i'm bored and having fun making posts about nothing.... no i didn't mean it like that. ms. lemonyellow is cool. the ny times had a story about her back when she lived in austin.

oh while i'm thinknig about austin, be sure and look for my letter to the editor in the chronicle on pedi-cabs. it should appear in this week or next week's issue.

sites i seem to spend most of my time at lately...

www.oscn.net - looking up case at work

www.vagrantcafe.com">www.vagrantcafe.com - arguing politics

as you can see my life has been rather mundane as of late. work, go home, get online, sleep. i miss austin a lot.

but, i am making money. sadly money is badly needed if i want to go to NYC and Cornerstone this summer. kinda sad though working all summer for a week and a half of joy. i need some joy now.

Well this is the beginning. Of what, I don't know. Time will tell.
