Appleton Roundabouts

Tuesday, Mar, 24 2015

Are you one of those people who fear these things?

"Roundabout-itis" perhaps?

On the Tuesday PhilCast I'll talk about some the newest roundabouts coming to "The Medium Apple".

And yes roundabout-haters, they ARE coming.

One of them is at an intersection now that makes no sense at all and is flat-out dangerous as it stands.

Roundabouts have a proven track record of being a safe alternative to the old-school stop signs or lights. Plus, they tend to keep traffic flowing more evenly with less stopping in most cases than if there were lights or signs.

Yet people have this 'thing' about roundabouts.
This fear is unexplainable to me, except to theorize that people don't like change and many just are not used to them. That should change as more and more roundabouts are built in our area.

Holy Pizza Batman!

Monday, Mar, 23 2015

Ahhh, Naples.
Home of the pizza.

And there it is, the pizza that a shpo owner made just for the Pope during his visit there.

The most amazing part of the story is that the Pope actually reached down from his Popemobile while passing by thousands of people lining the road and he took that pizza.

Recently the Pope said he liked being Pope and all, but he most missed being able to just go out and get a pizza.

That was some kind of delivery.
No tip necessary.

White People Only

Friday, Mar, 20 2015

As I was writing stories for the Friday PhilCast this morning, this one made me just stop and think for a little longer than usual.

And then I wrote for myself in my show notes, "This IS 2015, right?"

Dr. King must be spinning in his grave.

Austin, Texas businesses this week had this ugly racist sticker slapped on them unknowingly.

No, the city of Austin had nothing to do with this.

Some nut job (jobs) did.

In the words of Rodney King....can't we all just get along?

Goofy Dreams

Thursday, Mar, 19 2015

I haven't had a weird dream in a rather long time, but I had one last night.

It was one of those dreams that woke me up, not because I was falling or being chased or anything like that.

No, this is was so random and odd.
And it involved one particular thing.

I won't mention it here, but I will be calling in the "Dream Whisperer" Dr. Reggie today in the first hour of the show to help interpret my goofy dream from last night.

Can we fit a couch in the PhilCast studio this afternoon?

Darth Vader robs a bank

Wednesday, Mar, 18 2015

So that's weird, right?

Not every day you see Darth holding up a bank using a long gun as a weapon.

It happened in North Carolina.

Authorities are still looking for him.

Oh, the getaway vehicle of choice for a Darth Vader bank robber these days?

Chevy Suburban.
