Before I even started to run I saw Krishna, Cristin and baby Kieran. I posted that picture on my the Prospect Park Track Club blog.
Wreaths Across America Project. I might disagree with what Walmart is doing, (I don't think a wreath is the best way to honor our vets, I think the best way to honor them is to end the need for them) but I don't think they should be stopped from doing it. It is still a nice thing. I would also honor the truck driver, Walter White who traveled 1,500,000 without an accident.
This got me thinking abut this whole public/private partnership thing. Last night I had a conversation where I said that I thought that it was kinda weird that Bill Gates can give Billions of dollars to the government, for schools but it has to be spent his way. I mean don't we elect people to run the government. They appoint people to make decisions on how things are done. Buy the person I was talking to (who knows a lot more about how government and charity work than me) explained that the city accepts grants from people who what to help with what the city already decided to do. Like if some guy said if will give the city a million bucks if they taught creationism, they would not take it. That made me feel better, really.
On my return to Brooklyn I saw this sticker on the Brooklyn Bridge. It got my attention so I will link to their sponsor Angryeel.com.
