Being “in service.” In other words, allowing the wealthy to live and thrive, be gay and socialize, while others toil.

It’s Time to Run: Pasadena Marathon

We’ve got a 13.1 sticker on our car that occasionally elicits a question, or even less often creates the question, “What half marathon did you run?” Of course, the Napa to Sonoma Wine Country Half Marathon was survived so many years ago that it’s like a lovely memory, the pain of every step as the [...]
