Another Terrace Morning




Thanks to CityWatch for bringing this piece of mine on Enterprise Zones to a much wider audience. I saw something I thought I might like this morning at News Google, clicked because of the fetching title, and was surprised to see something I had written there. It all came out of a Greig Smith Friday newsletter.

California wants to lead the way on health care reform. It should; it has more uninsured and more to gain than any other state.

In Arizona, the Tea Party is scaring away more moderate Republicans and Republicans of color. And some Tea Party people are scared too.

Rodger Jacobs is trying to sit down and write a novel. One roadblock is short-term writing gigs, and another is making rent "...and searching for suitable housing in Los Angeles, only to discover that the 'affordable' rental market is a thing of the past." He still lives in Vegas.

If you've never seen this commencement speech of Steve Jobs' before, now's the time. Then go out and be insanely great, change the world, pray for Steve. &c. But then again, making rent wasn't as much a problem when Jobs founded Apple, not even in Palo Alto. Nor did we spend so much time waiting for customer "service"--for Apple, health care, or anything else.
