    As democracy is perfected, the office of president represents, more and more closely, the inner soul of the people. On some great and glorious day the plain folks of the land will reach their heart's desire at last and the White House will be adorned by a downright moron. - H.L. Mencken

    How to REALLY keep track of your money B-)

    Satellite light, satellite bright, first satellite I see tonight...

    Hop into your own virtual BMW or Porsche and cruise by these German autobahn signs

    Also, albeit a bit off topic because it does include planning info;
    Everything you ever wanted to know about the roads/bridges/tunnels/etc in and around NYC
    (includes info on the neverbuilts and also has links for the Philadelphia and southern New England areas)

    Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves?
    Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?
    Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?
    From Kelly's Heroes (1970)


    Are you sure you're not hurt ?
    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.

    This incredibly specific map of Homer Simpson's hometown is so meticulous it has been added to Harvard's digital-map collection.

    There don't seem to be many southern California planners here but if you hate the Dodgers (like this Giants fan), then you'll love this site.

    I think I am going to be sick. Remember my blood pumps royal blue for the Dodgers.

    I've always liked Seanbaby.com's Why We're Sarcastic page.

    www.butterfliesandwheels.com - great discussion site ran by some secular philosophers.

    www.arcataeye.com Look at the police log!

    Jesus' general. Not very good for the devout, but still a hilarious political site.

    Although my workplace's firewall blocks it, I like landover baptist, too

    And, the always amusing www.portalofevil.com

    Satan Stole My Teddy Bear-a great music site (punk, heavy metal) (only intermittent updates) with a pretty intelligent if young-trending discussion forum.

    Another site called "cyburbia"...

    http://quad.bic.caltech.edu/~kremersd/
    It is about art and science -- but if you search for "Cyburbia", it comes up as something like 3rd on the list because it has the same name as this site. Fascinating stuff.


    EDIT: Warning: The link called "wonder/controversy" takes a zillion years to download.
