Ceci n'est pas une personne.

For those in PDX (or going to be there this weekend), this weekend is the Adult Soap Box Derby.

This is a fun event and highly recommend it. My Dad's company have a team (The MICE Display Works team). If you're there, be sure to give them some good-luck beer. :-)

Anyway, they are using the same cart they had last year, but modified. The wheel base has been extended and a few other mods. In testing it got upto 40 mph. That's a 10 mph improvement over last year.

Piloted by Scott!

Direct quote from the just published REAGAN DIARIES.

The entry is dated May 17, 1986.

'A moment I've been dreading. George brought his ne're-do-well son around this morning and asked me to find the kid a job. Not the political one who lives in Florida. The one who hangs around here all the time looking shiftless. This so-called kid is already almost 40 and has never had a real job. Maybe I'll call Kinsley over at The New Republic and see if they'll hire him as a contributing editor or something. That looks like easy work.'

Wired to the wheel and bound to no one
fire up the engine down the fences go
free dance about the blacktop the back route
there's always a way out where there's a road

--Excerpt from Where There's A Road by Sam Bush

I'm fighting a major case of wander lust. I just want to load up my backpack and the scooter and go explore back roads through the country side for an indefinite amount of time.
