She didn't ding it for the flavor though. She even listed it as one of the pros. Harmony knocked points off for the price and the crowds. You can judge her all you want, but it's a perfectly fair review - her biases are listed at the beginning but aren't allowed to color the final rating. » 11/20/14 9:51am Thursday 9:51am

I can't say anything for NY, but in Seattle Car2Go pay sthe city something like $1,000 per car each year for the right to ignore meters. DC did a deal, too - I think they wound up paying half a million or something each year. Either way, they went to the city and worked out the permitting process before they started… » 11/18/14 10:22am Tuesday 10:22am

That may be the case, but those kids he's advising aren't under contract with a MLS club. They're free agents and have a right to seek advice from Klinsmann. It's not Klinsmann's job to tell them to stick with MLS if that won't be in their best long term interests. » 11/14/14 12:48pm 11/14/14 12:48pm

It's the hip thing to do now. Billy Joel is, at worst, inoffensive but competent.

Close, but what you want is the Hittite chariot. They were the ones who really revolutionized the whole thing. Made it lighter, more maneuverable and able to carry more people. Basically, if we're comparing chariots to F1 cars, the Hittite version was the Lotus 79. » 11/10/14 11:58am 11/10/14 11:58am

Elk meat is good and I have no problem with hunting in general. I just don't understand the trophy aspect. It took no more skill to kill a big elk as a medium size elk, it's just luck as to which crosses your path. So why bother posing with it? » 11/05/14 5:18pm 11/05/14 5:18pm

I've got a list of ways the new maps are inferior to the old ones. I have yet to hear from a single person that can tell me what the new Google maps does better than the old version. It's been a disaster and I find myself using alternatives far more frequently than I did. » 11/05/14 3:55pm 11/05/14 3:55pm
