They were handing out cheese samples at Publix when I went to grab a sandwich for munch. The Gouda had already been consumed at the time of this photo.
(It should be noted that I don’t take all the cheese samples as a rule. The samplemaster insisted I try one of each.)


WHY DON’T YOU TRY ALL THE SAMPLES? YOU SHOULD TRY ALL THE SAMPLES. THAT’S WHY THEY ARE THERE. SO YOU CAN SAMPLE. S A M P L E MEANS TRY THEM ALL. WHAT ARE YOU SOME UNSELFISH JERK?

“It’s heating up again, but it’s still not anything near like it was in ’99. And even though people love to badmouth ’99 and 2000, you also have to remember that’s when Google got built.”

2nd Hand Story about James Meredith

who integrated Ole Miss back in 1962 when my Mom was a journalist for the school paper

… there sits James Meredith reading a book by Curtis Wilkie called “Dixie”. The book is about various events that occurred in the South over the last 50 years that shaped the South. I’ve read it and best I can remember, about 1/5 of the book is dedicated to the James Meredith Ole Miss deal. So the conversation goes like this-

Me- “you readin that part about you?”
JM- “yep. just seein if he got it right”
Me- “well did he?”
JM- ” for the most part”

he had an ole miss hat on, as he always does. he told me that Mississippi has come farther in race relations over the last 50 years than any other state in the country. he can’t hear very well. its hard to beleive that a person can read a book about himself regarding an event that occurred 50 years ago.

Euge posted this on Twitter, noting that the dude on the left looked like he was having a blast. So I slapped together some cheap photoshoppery to make it so.

This is another tribute entry. To @paperghost
Is there ANYONE who isn’t on Tumblr?
@paperghost has a tendency toward posting items with > 2000 notes or re-blogs. But at a high-frequency pace, with a surprisingly upbeat tone when viewed in archive mode. Much preferred over the tumblr of @felixsalmon, who foolishly refuses to accept my suggestions to install Disqus comments, in order that I may better torture him with my pithy after hours comments about his daily Reuters news analysis.

just KNEW this was Memphis. I believe the brick was made just for the airport then the guy who matched the colors died when a rainbow landed on him.

Mississippi Flooding
The Mississippi River crested in Memphis at nearly 48 feet yesterday — not quite surpassing its all-time record set in 1937, but still soaking low-lying areas with enough water to require a massive cleanup. The upper Mississippi basin has been experiencing near-record flooding for weeks now. Across Missouri, Illinois, Kentucky, and Arkansas, heavy rains have left the ground saturated and rivers swollen. At the same time as recovery begins in Memphis, residents of Louisiana are working to prepare themselves for the massive amounts of water heading their way — experts estimate that as many as three million acres may become submerged in the next few days.
