    I am a powerful man in this town

    Yesterday. Today: I would like to say that this was me, David Brauer, a wheelbarrow and two shovels. But that would be untruthful, and I want to use my powers for good rather than evil. Commuters: you're welcome. Next, I would like the ramps at...

    Pothole of the day: 4/7

    Look at this fucking monster. When I drove my car toward it, I didn't anticipate a bump -- I anticipated a visit to Land of the Lost. Watch out for Sleestaks, Rick Marshall. We're going in! When the 46th Street ramps were closed until 2010, I was ...

    NYTimes "Blogging Kills" article misses key point: health insurance
